Go to class (it is easier to pass a class if you go and don't pay attention than if you just skip altogether)
Get Involved
Relax! It's college!
Sarah from Eagle, ID
-Talk to your professors if you have a problem, they really want you to succeed.
-If you need help, go to the Center for Learning, they'll help you with anything you need.
-Stay involved! Almost every week, an event is going on at the Idaho Falls Campus. Meet some new friends and enjoy school a little more.
-Be prepared. Every class I've had has given me a schedule for when assignments are due. Look at them often, to make sure you get things in on time!
-Talk to your academic advisers, they'll keep you on track!
-Go in with a great attitude. You can do this, and not everyone in the world has this fantastic opportunity!
Cortney from Shelley, ID
Enjoy your first year of college, get involved in something, meet new people and get your professors to know your name.

Amanda from Idaho Falls, ID
Apply for scholarships early!
Don't always eat at the cafeteria, Turner Hall is all-you-can-eat, so if you're always eating there, you're gonna gain wait.
Have fun!
Get involved!

this may not be the place for everyone. it's a good school for a basis in the sciences, since they are trying to open a medical school here so there's a lot of science-based classes available in the biological and chemical sciences. it's also kind of out in the middle of nowhere, so if you're looking for a booming nightlife this is probably not the place to go.
The professors are willing to take time to help each individual student with any questions or problems. The aides for the professors are always available, willing to help and know what they are doing as well. Also, if there are any issues with reaching deadlines due to any problems, there is always some leniency and willingness to work around the problems.
McKenzie from Pocatello, ID
It'll be more convenient to have your own car here since you won't want to spend all the weekends/holidays on campus.
Also, remember to apply to the college before the scholarship deadline (sometime in February). You don't have to fill out any extra applications for those scholarships, they are automatically given depending on your GPA, ACT scores, etc.
If you are interested in science research, go talk to your professors. Unlike most universities, ISU allows freshmen to do undergraduate research. You might not be doing much as a freshman, but you'll be in a lab and observing some very cool lab experiments.

my tips for prospective students would be to be prepared from the beginning. i came into my first couple semesters with no idea how to study, but if i would have remained focused i could have improved my grades drastically.
