"I was a transfer student. I was originally pursuing Family Consumer Sciences- Child Development degree. I already had an associate in Early Childhood Care and Education but was going to have to repeat many course that I've already completed and take courses that work with teenagers- I want to work with preschoolers. I switched my degree and love what I'm doing. Administration doesn't really care about your education as much as they are making money."

"University of Idaho was my way of getting an education as far away from my parents as I could, that aside, it was a great school. I ended up staying in an all girls dorm (at my parents insistence) and my first semester I did great (all A's except for 1 B). However, for the first time in my life I had more friends than I knew what to do with... in more social circles than I knew existed. College is NOT the place to learn to balance social calendars and academic responsibilities. I'm off topic however. I found the health clinic lacking (I was a broke college student and while I was under the impression our tuition went towards health expenses I found out we were expected to pay jacked up prices for services rendered.) The academic aspects of the school, however, were amazing. My academic counselor was essential in my success my first semester and I wish I had taken her and my schooling more seriously back then. The classes and the professors were engaging and interesting although I was a little overwhelmed after a self-paced homeschooling experience prior to my senior year at a public school. Overall, I rate this school an excellent choice for anyone looking for a big town school with a small town feel. Just be careful not to get sucked into the partying aspect found at, really, any college."

"University of Idaho is in the small town of Moscow, Idaho. The overall experience for underage students would be good, and even those who are younger and getting their Masters would find it very enjoyable. However, because it is very rural, there is not as much diversity and culture as I might enjoy as a nontraditional and older student. The health insurance is not as good as it used to be (I assume to save money) and tuition rates have gone up as well as a big turnover in presidents of the school. The professors, being in the State of Idaho, which has a very low rating in education, do not receive as much in salary, although my professors made tenure. A more diverse teaching staff would also be welcome. It is a safer school, but concealed weapons were just allowed on campus. So: we are gun-totin', keep "others" off our campus, lower tuition school, but with a good bar scene! The State of Idaho, however, is working to try and improve education in the state. Depends on whether the state can turn Democratic or not."

Lindsay Handford - 8/27/2013
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008
"In General, I feel that my college experience has been beneficial for my overall life in both a personal and professional way. I have learned new ways of viewing situations and gained skills that have aided my understanding of others and the world. After graduating, the job market is quite difficult without a degree and many places don't even care what the degree is in as long as you have one. Although I have earned a degree and it has benefited me, I do feel like I could’ve been more productive with my choice and will eventually need to go back to school to further my education in a more specified industry."

"Tell us about your college experience.The school was a good value, provided the traditional college experience, and was neither too big or too small. It was a good fit for me as I was able to obtain a benefit eligible position on campus to help offset the cost of my education.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes, a psychology degree is useful across many job fields.What advice can you offer other students?Don't be afraid to not attend a four year university directly after high school. There is a lot of value and growth in taking time to work and/or figure out long term life goals. Taking courses at a two year or community college is a great idea to try different areas without a high cost, and many schools have excellent vocational programs."

"I attended a previous college before University of Idaho and was sorely disappointed in the experience. Since arriving here my sophomore year I have found a challenging but rewarding curriculum. The professors are professional but easily approachable."
