Idaho has some of the biggest college sports teams in the country. Boise State is known far and wide, and the land is well known for its agricultural products. What Idahoans know, and few others understand, is that the Gem State is more than just a few big colleges and potatoes, Idaho is a state dedicated to the future. That future comes from education, and even if students don’t find the school they are searching for in state, they know they can turn to online programs for the options they need. In addition, the state has schools that offer laptops to students to help them get started on their future. Idaho is a state of variety and interest, and living there is a unique experience that few people will ever experience.
