Why I chose the University of Idaho


Originally, I am from Twin Falls, Idaho, which is all the way on the other end of Idaho. Truthfully, I wanted to get out of Idaho, so I applied to all these dream schools, but idealistically, I knew that starting in Idaho, would be the best place to start. I knew that when I got out of high school, I wanted to go someplace new, someplace that I had never been before. I was feeling adventurous and ambitious, just like any other high school senior that couldn’t wait to get out of their town.

When I first came to the university, I did not expect how amazing the atmosphere of the town would be. The town was laidback, friendly, and pleasant. Moscow has its own, unique culture, and everywhere is in walking distance and convenient.

What I like most about UI

I decided to major in International Studies because of my passion to work in some type of diplomacy. The Martin Institute is so engaging and offers so many amazing opportunities. I’ve had the opportunity to meet with former diplomats and influential people that were inspiring.

Though it wasn’t really until my second semester here, until I got involved, I took a chance and campaigned to be a student senator representing the undergraduate population. I was so surprised that I won, and it was a big step in boosting my confidence. I also am a resident assistant in the dorms. I lead a pretty crazy and busy life, but it’s all worth it!
