Q&A with Abdulmajeed Alotaibi

Why did you choose the University of Idaho?  
I was looking for a university to apply to, and my friend advised me to apply here.

What’s the best thing about the University of Idaho?
The campus design is really good because most the buildings are near each other and you will not have any problem getting to class on time, even if you have just 10 minutes between class.

What are your favorite campus activities?
I like to go to the Rec Center once in awhile, or sit around and watch students. Sometimes I see students playing games like Humans vs Zombies or scatting.

What are your favorite local activities?
I like to go out with my friends to downtown Moscow, attend the Farmers Market and go ice skating.

What’s your favorite thing to do in Moscow, Idaho?
I like to go to watch the football games, join IPO trips, join some concerts and play soccer with my friends.  

What are your plans after you graduate?
Go back to my home and find a job to build the future I want for myself.

Advice for new students?
Moscow is small town but you will love it because there are other cities close to it and you can go there anytime you want, like Seattle, Boise, Spokane, Lewiston and Portland.
