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.
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).
