    UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO REVIEW

    It was affordable and in the state. I love the campus and the small town. It's a loving community. I also really wanted to be apart of the Greek life on campus. It is the perfect distance from home for me so that I felt like I was close but never too close.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I have really enjoyed the course curriculum through my first two years. I enjoy the fact that we have seminars that we have to take our freshman and junior years that help prepare us for college and life.
