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!
This university is amazing! The level of student involvement and acceptance is great. The food could be a little better, and I have heard horror stories about the freshman living accommodations. However, I have not had any bad experiences with living on campus for two years, so I find those to be somewhat lacking in substance. It is a party school, so if you aren't a party person there are few avenues for social interactions. But other than that I love it here!
U of I provides fantastic support for disabled students, both physically and learning disabled (from firsthand experience). Various student support and health awareness programs. Most professors are fair and understanding. They were all college students too once, be honest if you need extensions/help. The town of Moscow has a huge, active social community-the department of student involvement and student council are phenomenal. Sports program is spectacular, we have amazing soccer, basketball, and volleyball teams, only football team has struggled. Dedicated and award winning ROTC program for all branches. U of I has huge Greek system which has contributed to college’s negative reputation as a party school. On-campus living isn't good, although dorms have been recently updated, the rooms are still cramped, worn-in and leave much to be desired. The meal plans can be summed up like this: quantity over quality. Good service, allergy and veg-friendly, but the food isn't good.
