The College of Idaho Reviews
My overall experience has been very good with the fact that my professors are personable and ready to help whenever asked. The students here are very kind and given that it is a small, private campus, everyone knows mostly everyone! The food here is really good as a catering service prepares the food, and they always have options. My only issue is with the dorms and the price of the dorms as I feel that I am paying more for what I am getting. Overall College of Idaho would be a great fit for anyone looking for a small school that offers multiple opportunities for their students.
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.
I love The College of Idaho! Dorm life is amazing. Because of the real family feel of the people I live with, I wasn't scared at all when I moved in. The quality of my classes is just as beneficial; I've learned so much just in my first semester and the number of opportunities I have in the years to come is limitless.
