    You must try the local Cougar Country diner, they have some of the greatest fries. Also, you cannot leave campus and not try the Cougar Gold Cheese. There are some nice bike trails to explore when the weather warms up that people use, one even goes to Moscow, making for a great work out. It is one of the trust worthiest cities I have lived in. The rent here also is great, you get a lot for what you pay if you live off campus or on campus apartments.

    If you have RDA, then the dining halls and things are pretty good but there are some places around that cost more than reasonable sometimes because it is a college town.

    I do not partake in the drinking aspect of college like many students but I do still have fun going to sporting events and other random things held by the college. Some of my classes have been very worthwhile as others have sadly disappointed me. College is what you make of it. Get involved and be active and it will all pay off in the end.
