First Day Of Classes At CSI


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Local college students are back at it.

The first day of school at the College of Southern Idaho kicked off.

"We are glad it's finally here and it's good to see the students come back year-to-year, said Doug Maughan, College of Southern Idaho.

Josh Maybim is entering into his sophomore year as a pre-law student; he is hoping this is his last year at CSI.

"Just because it's a junior community college it has all the things regular colleges do. We have dorms, cafeteria, and all the college life you need,” said Josh Maybim, sophomore.

This fall semester more than 6,800 students are registered, that's down compared to previous years.

"Enrollment is at best even or down a little bit from last year. We expect we'll suffer a little bit of a downturn in enrollment and we don't know exactly why" said Maughan.

There is a lot of excitement on campus during the first week of classes.

But, Maybim does have one complaint.

"They only give you $10 back; they sometimes don't even take books back anymore, they aren't cheap," said Maybim.

While the lines may die down throughout the coming weeks at the book store, students are beginning a whole new semester.

That begins their future growth towards a college degree.

Campus police do want to remind students and staff with the heavy traffic in the parking lots pedestrians have the right of way.
