    Very good education and by far the best you can get in Idaho, but be prepared to pay a lot. Not just for tuition, but for your books, housing, and food as well. They offer scholarships, but they don't often cover everything.

    College of Idaho has and excellent faculty and fantastic classes, I definitely think that the school is well worth it. Not only do you get a quality education but you get a family at the same time, even if you don't want it because the school is so small you would be hard pressed to not get to know a lot of people.
