  • Oct-09-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Don't judge the university by how it looks when you first get there. Actually talk to people and walk around and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    get involved. the more you do, the more you'll enjoy the university. an easy choice is red alert, the official student fan organization. it's a lot of fun and athletics at isu are amazing. both the students and community support the teams. greek life is also excellent there (but not necessary to feel included) and other campus rsos are incredibly diverse. you're sure to find lots to love.
