Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 1978

Overall Rating

The pharmacy program was the only available in Idaho. Well done program. No regrets. The athletic departments were lacking, but my interest is strictly accademic. I wouldn't change schools just for the athletic department. The library and on campus entertainment was average. There was a strong religious influence that I did not appreciate (Mormons).

Former Student - Last Attended 1978

Overall Rating

I enjoyed the social life and the academics were excellent. In our area of study, pharmacy, this school is surpassed by none. I would highly recommend this pharmacy school program to any potential student.
