Thinking About College
The University of Idaho is a leading research university in the West and nation, and a first choice for aspiring leaders around the world. Newsweek magazine placed Idaho in its 2012 national edition of “Best Colleges for You.”
With globally competitive learning opportunities in a student-centered environment and remarkable outdoor surroundings, it’s easy to see why. Our alumni are leaders worldwide in business, public service, science, the arts and more.
At the University of Idaho, students don’t just learn about what’s happening in the world, they get out into the world to make things happen. Students volunteer 150,000 hours annually to service projects like building orphanages in Peru, revitalizing rural towns, or developing online learning tools for children in Taiwan. These efforts helped earn the University of Idaho a spot on the U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition for community service and engagement.
