The University of Idaho is a very special and unique school. The school is located in Moscow which is a very safe cute and quirky town filled with spirit. The school offers a very supportive and engaging community. I would definitely encourage everyone to go greek! The greek system at Idaho is very strong and traditional having a home for everyone. Greek life has had such a big impact on making my college experience so much more valuable and memorable. The school offers a very wide variety of majors, clubs, sports, and activities. I wouldn't trade my experience for anything else.
Review University of Idaho
Ambition is one thing I had going into college, but motivation was also something I lacked profoundly. The University of Idaho has a copious amount of support that changed my life for good. It was here that I learned I have ADHD and a mood disorder. Learning more about myself restored hope of becoming more successful. From the counseling center to student support services, there is always someone available to talk to about practically anything. Besides emotional support, I am pleased with the free tutoring the school has to offer, including a writing center! The staff is vibrant and the students elected to advise and/or coordinate events are as well. I like to believe the UOI brings a jubilant and peaceful feeling to those around, especially strangers. There's always someone there to acquaint you to the area and make sure you know where you're going. Overall this peaceful, smoke free school makes me feel comfortable!
My two colleges (CNR and CALS) were incredibly engaging. CALS in particular went above and beyond with checking-in on students and keeping everyone updated on clubs, faculty changes, events, etc. University of Idaho overall had a stunning, well-cared-for campus and hundreds of fantastic, friendly staff members. The university has an unprecedented number of offices and teams arranged for all kinds of subjects such as Mental Health, LGBTQ, Multicultural Affairs, and Greek life. Students have access to counseling, tutoring, 24/7 hotlines, the women's center, the health center, the top-notch recreation center, the theater, and incredible educational facilities. The labs were all in great condition and the IT program/computer centers were excellent. The only thing which needs improvement is the lack of parking and the lack of availability for some lecture halls. I loved my time there, definitely an incredible university and program.
