ISU is a great school.Quite BrightNursing
ISU is a great school. You can choose to challenge yourself with your major and classes or you can come to have a good time. There is always something fun to do wether it is joining a club or academic group, taking advantage of our outdoor recreation center or hitting up parties and the bars, you will have a good time. ISU has excellent academics particularly in healthcare related fields. Our nursing and pharmacy programs really stand out. If you are planning on attending school in Idaho this is THE place to go.

Honestly, I'm not sure if I would haveQuite BrightOther
Honestly, I'm not sure if I would have gone elsewhere for my undergraduate education, but I know I intend to go elsewhere for my graduate degree.

I was a Communication Sciences and Disorders (Audiology) major in Meridian, and I felt like a second-class citizen. The CSED department was brushed to the side to begin with, but because we had very few audiology majors compared to copious amounts of speech-language pathology majors, we were the second-class of second-class. At the time of writing this (and essentially for a full semester), there were ZERO audiology faculty on the Meridian campus (they are all in Pocatello and lecture via Distance Learning).

I felt like we as audiology students could have been learning so much more than we were given the opportunity to learn. And ultimately, I left feeling unprepared for graduate school (although I had been advised that most audiology undergraduate students feel that way).

On the upside, I enjoyed most of my professors (and most of my classes, since I was primarily in major-related courses). I had a couple first-timers who ate the dust but I also had a few professors I fell in love with and really grew close to. That is all up to you, though; if you want to know your professors, you have to make an effort. I can't speak to general-ed type classes or the campus in Pocatello because I went to the Meridian campus and transferred in as a Junior. I would not recommend for or against ISU, just that you make your decision with an open mind and a grain of salt.

Did not finish college was drafted. I feel that college is very important and you get out of it what you put into it !

College takes approx. 4 years to prepare for a working life os 45-50 years. Applying your self for 4 years to have a more secure and successful working life only makes sense.
