Edit: You Get Bang For College Buck

If you’ve spent extended lengths of time contemplating how you’ll afford the next four or five ­­— but hopefully not six years of your college life — you fall into an uncomfortably large category. Yet the simple idea that you have an opportunity to gain the unique experience of higher education places you into a catastrophically smaller category. That experience will come with an undesirable price tag, indeed, but to put it simply and truthfully, you’ll get quite a bit of bang for your buck while you are a student at the University of Idaho. Aside from the holy grail — a gleaming diploma that confirms you’ve learned a thing or two during your time in Moscow — you’ll come away with priceless friendships and valuable lessons that can’t be had outside of a university setting/University of Idaho Argonaut Editorial Board.
