University of Idaho Reviews
The University of Idaho is am absolutely amazing school! We have wonderful professors that actually care about your education and well-being. There are so many clubs, organizations, and ways to get involved with this school. Also, the city of Moscow is so beautiful and welcoming to all new Vandals. The Vandal family is definitely strong at the University of Idaho and beyond. I am so proud to call myself a Vandal and attend such an amazing University.
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.
