A comprehensive and prestigious university, Idaho combines excellence in professional programs (business, engineering and architecture) with strength in agriculture and natural resources, and commitment to the arts and humanities. This year it is celebrating its 125th year anniversary. It has a beautiful residential campus. Class size averages 26, and the teacher/student ration is 18:1. It is home to many festivals including the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival.

Campus Location - UI is located in a college town in the region of the US with rolling wheat fields that National Geographic magazine has referred to as "A Paradise Called the Palouse." It is ideal for students who love the great outdoors with world class river rafting (Salmon River), skiing (Silver Mountain, Brundage & Schweitzer), fishing (Clearwater River) & hiking (Idaho Primitive Area). It is only 1 1/2 hours from Spokane and 5 hours from Seattle so students can also access vibrant nearby cities.

Helpful Information - It has many hands-on learning opportunities. Students may spend a Semester in the Wild learning about the environment, design a hybrid Formula One racer as a part of an engineering class, explore the secrets of human cell life on NSF grant funded research projects, trade stock in a business class, grow seedlings and plants in one of the only teaching/working nurseries in the US, and perform with other artists across disciplines in productions such as Drummers, Dancers and Dreamers!
