CSI Academic Program
COLLEGE OF SOUTHERN IDAHO
The College of Southern Idaho (CSI), in Twin Falls, is the fastest-growing institution of higher learning in Idaho.
Over the past decade enrollment has increased 125 percent. Some 12,000 people of all ages are full- or part-time students in academic, vocational, and continuing-education programs. As a community college, the campus also hosts seminars, workshops, concerts, conventions, athletic contests, and other special events.
The college offers such community oriented services as industry-related job training programs and counseling, and seminars on small-business development.
CSI has special programs for the deaf, blind, and other handicapped students. Unique programs include deaf interpreter training, fish technology, and General Motors automobile mechanics and auto body repair programs.
The college is an authorized training institution for an apprenticeship program cooperatively formed by the U.S. Department of Labor, the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training, the Idaho State Board of Vocational Education, and the College of Southern Idaho Board of Trustees. State and federal funding back a number of additional programs, which include the establishment of outreach centers in Burley, Hailey, and Wendell.
The Twin Falls campus boasts thousands of trees and shrubs and a fitness trail. The two-mile exercise area was constructed with the help of funds raised through the Twin Falls Rotary Club. The majority of campus buildings are heated with geothermal water from the two hot-water wells on campus.
Campus facilities include the Fine Arts Center, the Herrett Museum and the Expo Center. The Expo Center hosts indoor rodeos, farm and recreational vehicle shows, and livestock expositions. Its gymnasium seats 3,500 spectators and serves as a site for community events. The CSI fish farm in Rock Ceek Canyon raises trout as large as 18 pounds.
In 1981 Idaho State University (ISU) established a satellite office at CSI. The ISU Resident Center allows students to earn a four-year degree in nursing, education, or general education. By combining courses from CSI and ISU, students may earn a business degree. ISU provides a daily commuter bus service to its campus in Pocatello. The university also provides resources to area businesses through its link to the Center for Business Research at the Pocatello campus.
