About the Region

You are here

CWI is located in the Treasure Valley, Southwest Idaho’s economic and cultural hub, and just like its name implies the area is rich with opportunity, activities, and recreation. When you are not studying or attending class, you might find yourself enjoying the cultural offerings of downtown Boise (Idaho’s state capitol), or hiking in the Boise Foothills. Outdoor recreation is a favorite pastime for many Treasure Valley residents, as the area boasts some of the best camping, hiking, and white water rapids in the nation.   

The Treasure Valley has been recognized nationally as a great location to live, work, and receive an education. Whether it’s the vibrant cultural and recreational opportunities or the friendly people, low cost of living, and four-season climate – the Treasure Valley affords a quality of life that rivals virtually any other place in the nation.
