Why did you choose the University of Idaho?  
The University of Idaho is located in Moscow, Idaho, a beautiful college town with lots of state reservoirs and wildlife around. It doesn't matter if it's winter or summer, there are always outdoor sports opportunities for people to enjoy.

It is the right place to learn, to live and to play.
