North Idaho College provides not only a quality education at an affordable price, but also a lovely campus that takes one’s mind of off the daily grind of college life including what may seem to be an endless number of papers, presentations, and exams. Situated on the shores of Lake Coeur d’Alene, North Idaho College’s location alone produces envy due to its proximity to nature’s beauty and is impressive for its commitment to serving not only its student body, but also the community overall.
Established in 1933 and accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, North Idaho College has gone through three different name changes. Originally called Coeur d’Alene Junior College, followed by North Idaho Junior College, it did not receive its current name until 1971. Its lakeside campus boasts an array of activities including sailing competitions and boat shows. There is also a host of outdoor sports offered to those who love the outdoors as Coeur d’Alene provides easy and quick access to area parks and forests. If the outdoors is not exactly your scene, you can also find all the advantages of city living in the downtown Coeur d’Alene area and Spokane, Washington, a major metropolitan area is only a half an hour away.
