  • I graduated from BSU a long time ago. It still is a pleasant campus and is home to the Morrison Center. I can't see it as a tourist attraction, but we all have our personal thoughts about about what i...  more »

  • Very pleased with my experience. Great location. Many people stay afterwards in the area, like myself.
  • Boise is a great town, but the university leads a lot to be desired. There isn't much of a community feel on campus, and the academics are just okay.
  • As an out-of-state incoming freshman, I have been very impressed with how Boise State has handled everything. I have called the Admissions and Financial Aid departments many times in the last year and they never once made me feel like I was wasting their time. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. The feel of campus and downtown Boise really can't be matched to any other school. Boise is such a safe community and I've enjoyed every second of my visits to the area. I am from Eugene, Oregon and did not have any luck finding a PUBLIC school in Oregon that would cost me less than roughly $8,000+ for in-state tuition (not including the room & board costs). If you do your research, you'll find that Boise State has a very impressive tuition rate, especially if you compare it to many other public schools in the West. Overall, I am very excited to attend BSU this fall and hope my good review and feelings about the school will continue. I highly recommend at least visiting the university and surrounding areas. The river and campus are phenomenal.
  • Having entered into my final year at BSU I can say my experience has been so rewarding. What a blessing to have found such an amazing school!
  • Beautiful campus, and lots of potential, but lack of quality faculty. Most of my classes have been taught by teaching assistants, adjunct faculty, or some other faculty member without any real qualifications to teach the material. Only when they start investing in their quality of education will they become a top school.
