What Students Are Saying

3.44 Average Rating
Idaho State University is a great school. While Pocatello doesn't really have too much to do, there is a lot to do in the surrounding areas, and ISU has a lot of things to do on campus. The professors are great!
Danielle from Meridian, ID
ISU have some of the best undergraduate level research opportunities in the West. It's a great university for science or health-science majors. Great teachers, classes, and environment!
