I really enjoy the faculty of the music department. It is a very difficult major but most of the professors are very understanding. I also enjoy campus events (I'm just too busy to participate in most of them unfortunately). I also like the amount of on-campus housing options, and there are a lot of nearby off-campus housing options as well. I was able to receive a lot of scholarships, which has definitely been one of the things I am most grateful for.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Honestly, it's probably not worth it to go here if you're not from Idaho. Idaho is a hateful area (although Pocatello is a little more accepting, given that it's a university city). In-state tuition is lower than out-of-state and there are more scholarships available to in-state students. Also, the crime rates are pretty high in Pocatello, so it's not exactly the safest area. I don't feel like I can walk places at night safely (although I don't know if I would feel safe doing that in other cities either).

Idaho state is a great place for nontraditional students. Also, the class sizes are small so you get more one-on-one time with teachers.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is absolutely no social life here. The campus does not do anything fun and it’s very hard to meet people here.

Idaho State University is a good school. It has a tight-knit family-like community.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Idaho state can have professors that are single-minded.

I really enjoyed the ability of how you can do your classes. Someone can choose in-person to fully online. The programs you use to do your classwork are clear and straightforward.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

At the moment, there is nothing to comment on a dislike about.
