The University of Idaho, found in Moscow, Idaho near the northern tip of the state, boasts many distinctions, even when compared to other mountainous land-grant institutions. It enrolls more National Merit Scholars than all other colleges in Idaho combined, has the state’s only fully accredited law school, and generated research expenditures of over $100 million in 2010 alone. Recent research discoveries include an exploration of the human mind’s reaction to overwhelming data (by Dr. Scott Slovic) and a mathematical model that explains the factors leading to the collapse of beehives (by Prof. Brian Dennis). Students can major in any of hundreds of subjects of study at the U of I, including conservation biology, creative writing, food science, advertising and art education. Intramural sports and a wilderness-based outdoor adventure program keep students physically active, and the arts scene here is just as rich and vibrant; U of I plays host to an Auditorium Chamber Music Series as well as the Lionel Hampton Jazz festival. For a place that forges the heroes of tomorrow out of the students of today, look no further than the exciting University of Idaho!
