University of Idaho Reviews
The University of Idaho is great place to get an education. I have gone to both Washington State University and the University of Idaho, and I believe the University of Idaho gives students a very high chance to succeed. I love the University of Idaho because to the faculty and staff, you are not just a number like you are at larger schools such as WSU. These people here actually care about you and take the time to get to personally know you and understand you and try and get the most out of you. Another thing is, professors at UI do all they can to help you find internships and jobs because they actually care and want everyone to succeed. I would highly recommend the University of Idaho. Go Vandals!
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.
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!
