I am a second year at ISU and am a junior. Each semester in college is different but the first few seem to be pretty similar all across the board. I started college in August of 2008. ISU is a great school, the teachers care and there is always something going on for the new and current students. To start, go to orientation. I met people there that I am still in contact with.

    The normal bad cafeteria food. There's hardly any wind. Heated sidewalks during bad weather and good drainage systems.

    A very non-traditional school with a wide range of majors available. It is a commuter school with many students over the age of 20. The weather is very unpredictable.

    Idaho State University is a great school. The dorms are a little run down but they work. The food is not healthy and it's gross.

    ISU is the least sought after of the public, 4-year schools in Idaho. Tuition is relatively inexpensive for in-state and out-of-state students. Pocatello is kind of ugly, but students have access to many outdoor opportunities.

    ISU is very focused on student involvement. ISU takes cheating and tests very seriously. ISU does a lot to take care of their student body.

    I am attending at the Idaho Falls Campus, everyone is nice and it is easy to get around. They have a lot of activities on campus that you can take advantage of in your free time. It's just a great atmosphere with great people, and a good curriculum.

    Idaho State University is a pretty good school overall. The staff is helpful, there are lots of student involvement activities, and Pocatello is a comfortable town. The gym is very nice also.
