Get to know the University of Idaho
Meet the Vandals is a high-energy event for high school seniors and juniors, transfer students, and their families who want to learn more about who we are, why the University of Idaho could be a good choice for them, and what to do next. U of I leaders, faculty, staff and alumni are on hand to share the Vandal story, introduce programs and services, and answer your questions. The evening covers all things you need to know about becoming a Vandal, such as student life, housing options, majors, financial aid, the application process and much more.
