  • Good school. Great tuition prices compared to anything else for a four year degree. Campus is beautiful. Culture is building up to great things. The faculty is mostly helpful and knowledgeable about their subjects. Admissions office is to be desired.
  • Despite the locale of a nice emerging city, this University has serious issues with no remedial actions being taken or hope in sight. The administration is corrupt from top to the bottom, and the only game they play is to water down the standards of education in the State of Idaho by boosting enrollment. The foundation studies program is a disaster with greater than 85% students getting A grades in important courses. There is a constant pressure on instructors to pass everyone to boost enrollment so that the administration can boast of highest enrollment numbers in the state, and get largest paychecks in the state of Idaho. In addition to consistently falling standards of education, there are issues of rampant cronyism and discrimination against minorities. There are gangs and clubs of dominant group among faculty and administrators with blatant disregard for scholarship. Accomplished intellectuals and minority researchers are harassed and their incompetent counterparts promoted with several recent policy changes customized to promote incompetency. The message is clear – intellectuals and minorities, even if more competent, are not welcome here. If you are here, you are at the mercy of the monocolor administration. Deans and Chairs are picked on the basis of cronyism and in the words of senior administration, “Academic competence has nothing to do with leadership.” In other words, minorities must do all the work of upholding academic standards while the incompetent cronies of one group will be made your bosses, Dilbert style. In summary, if you are competent and talented with great ideas, this place is not for you. If you belong to the dominant group and are good at sucking up, go kayaking with them, and playing the game of incompetents, you will thrive in this borough. If you have seen the “Don’t Fail Idaho” advertisement, don’t think BSU will do any wonders to your future by attending it. They are doing a good job of failing Idaho by lowering the standards of education so that administrator can keep getting their fattest paychecks in the state.
  • Great up-and-coming university in an awesome area. Having lived in this valley my entire life, Ive been able to witness first hand the growth of the university and the city. New academic buildings are going up all the time. The university has also added a significant number of graduate programs recently. A great place to be.
  • A very great university with many great features. The campus is very well laid out and beautifully landscaped.
  • I love this city! Has a great park and amazing public transportation but I also I have never been here
