Pullman and the Inland Northwest offer unique opportunities to participate in the cultural life of a major research university and at the same time enjoy the benefits of small-town friendliness and proximity to the Northwest's scenic splendor. Outdoor recreational opportunities abound. Typical outings include rafting and kayaking on the Salmon River, hiking and skiing in the Idaho mountains, fishing for trout or steelhead in local rivers and streams or just enjoying a picnic almost anywhere. The community enjoys a fine local symphony, many chamber music groups, theater and dance companies. In addition, the University and neighboring institutions host a full schedule of concerts and performances by an eclectic assortment of artists on tour. Living costs in the Pullman area are much lower than in a major metropolitan area, and life is uncluttered by the distractions of big-city survival.
