The College of Idaho Reviews
Review The College of Idaho
The tuition is very high, but the rigorous course work and curriculum make it worth it.The one thing that you will graduate with, if you learn nothing else, is the ability to write papers at a high proficiency level. The college has a unique program that lets each student have one major and three minors, two majors and two minors, or for the highly motivated, three majors and one minor, all while graduating in 4 years. The school is like a large family, we look out for each other. Campus safety is always willing to help, whether it is to dig out your car from under a snow pile to taking you to pick up food. The food on campus is absolutely amazing! The party scene is amazing for everyone interested, but no one is ever pressured to participate in it. There are many clubs that you can join, or if you can't find one to join you can make one and receive school funding for it. If you're religious then there is plenty of religion based actives to attend.
The majority on campus is white, well-off, athletes, ages 18-26. If you're outside of this, you're a minority, but just because this is the majority doesn't mean that the minority isn't highly visible and highly accepted. There are many international students, and it is really cool to see the diversity. The diversity is important and encouraged, which is very difficult as the surrounding area is in a small town in Idaho, where there's white and hispanic, and that's about it. There is more diversity in the college than there is in the surrounding community.
Housing for Anderson is somewhat overpriced and needs repairs, while a state of the art library is being built. The atmosphere of the school is friendly and the community really supports the athletic programs. There are tons of club and extra curricular activities, including being able to start your own club. The food is excellent and the newer facilities are extremely nice while also giving a comfortable atmosphere. It's hard to pay for, but an enjoyable experience. Classes are challenging and a little much at times, but when you learn to manage your time, school gets much easier
