| What a great school at a great value! My decision to go to UI was one of the best decisions of my life. The education in the College of Natural Resources was great with tons of hands on experience. Professors are great and want to see you succeed. |
UI also values student life. There is lots to do. The Rec Center, for example, is state of the art and was a place where I ended up spending tons of time.
If you love the outdoors, this is the place for you. There is some of the best hunting and fishing in North America at your doorstep. Idaho is also known as the whitewater state and the campus Rec Center and Northwest River Supply (located in Moscow) supply equipment at some of the lowest prices I have ever seen. Fall = Hunting and Fishing, Winter = Skiing (I-90 or McCall), and Spring = Whitewater. For the weekends I spent in town, there was always a party or bar band to see.
Attending UI allowed me to succeed academically, have a great time, and walk out of graduation with ZERO debt. In a super competitive job market this allowed me to persue an advanced degree later on with less financial stress. I only wish I was doing it at UI. One downside: Winters vary from year to year and summer comes late. I had two very mild winters while I was there, but also two brutal ones as well. Need to be able to handle a little snow and cold.

| First and foremost, the University of Idaho is a very good school. The campus isn't very big, and walking to class rarely takes more then 15 minutes. My professors have been extremely helpful, and I have yet to have one that I didn't like. I think this is a very underrated school. With only about 12,000 students, you can get more personal help unavailable at most bigger flagship publics. The school has a personal feel, and its hard to believe that there is 12,000 students. This is the best school in Idaho, so it attracts many of the best students in the state. Scheduling appointments with advisors is easy, and professors have office hours to assist students. The campus is very safe, and crimes are very rare. Out of state tuition is very reasonable, and in-state tuition is cheap. I have absolutely no complaints about the school, as I am very satisfied with the education I have received so far. However, the town and surrounding area is another story.|
Moscow is a flat out joke. It is a dirty, under-educated, uninspiring, poor town in the middle of a bunch of wheat fields. There is absolutely nothing to do but go to a couple of the pathetic redneck bars downtown. Although going to sporting events at the U of I and nearby Washington State University are fun for people who like sports. When it snows, they do a terrible job of clearing the streets and sidewalks. This town is so depressing, it makes me wanna put a gun to my head. In my opinion, this is a good school to go to for 1-2 years. If you're from Idaho, this isn't a bad option to get your degree. If you are an out of stater like me, this could be a good safety school. It has been a good experience for me coming here, but I have higher expectations for myself. If you find the right social niche, you could probably have a good time here. However, it isn't the right fit for me.
