    Big research school; mostly engineering and agriculture.
    Despite the typical underfunding of the Arts and English departments, the art scene is Moscow is really cool and small business based. It's the small quirky town Portland pretends to be.
    At most 2 hours away from every amazing lake, river, and hiking opportunity North Idaho has to offer, as well as Canada.
    Moscow is the cool small town art scene that makes it feel more like Washington or Oregon than any other part of Idaho.
    "Destination Campus" it is gorgeous!
    The diversity in student is there, students and professors from all over the world studying here full-time or just for an abroad experience. We have an annual India night and another Bangladesh night.
    It is small town North Idaho though so the surrounding and local area is mostly rural Idaho white people.

    I love going to college in Moscow at the University of Idaho. I feel right at home with my new college family. Students are friendly, creative, and driven, and I find it easy to make friends because I relate to many of my peers! The professors and faculty are all very personal and are motivated to further your learning. What's more, the Moscow community is very active and creative. There are countless opportunities to support local artists, creators, and producers through the weekly Saturday Farmer's Market events, going to art shows, or buying books or plays by local authors or playwrights at the various bookstores! The town is safe, and the university is lively and fun. I absolutely love this school!
    I absolutely love how social the community is (both on campus and off)! The CBE (College of Business and Economics) stays connected and allows students to find opportunities to better their college experience through the faculty, staff, and other CBE students. Based on your college and major, you are able to connect with alumni, professors, and fellow students to discover different scholarships and internships. Overall, the University of Idaho has helped me to branch out, gain valuable learning experiences, and develop my own independence in a safe environment.
