  • There are a few very good professors at this school and few low-level administrative/advising employees who are student advocates. The three stars are for them. In regards to the upper administration: The ability to effectively communicate in the most common language of the student population should be a primary hiring consideration for a lecturing position. I am not talking about accents, I am talking about sentence formation and word choice. In 100, 200, and 300 level classes a professor's ability to communicate is more important than them having a doctorate in the subject matter. Program changes (required courses, prerequisites) should be made at the catalog level and NOT be retroactive to students that are already 2 years into a 4 year (wait, now 5 year) degree. Custom textbooks and textbook bundles that either force or trick students into paying more money for class materials and/or result in kickbacks to BSU or its professors are unethical. Despite the recent campaign to promote the idea that students are responsible for their own learning, professors still have a responsibility to provide the service that students have paid for. Punitive grading policies do not achieve this, the lack of standardized tests for courses offered with different professors does not achieve this and department heads who have no authority over the curriculum or evaluation methods of associate professors in their department do not achieve this.
  • No one is going to Google Maps to read a college review, so I'll rate this from a visitor's standpoint. This is a beautiful campus with modern buildings, clean walking areas, and a close-to-nature feel with a greenbelt snaking through the back. The facilities themselves (conference areas, indoor activity centers, etc.) are excellent. Parking pricing is a mess. I am a BYU grad and am used to a bunch of great, free parking, at least on the weekends. I was surprised to find $4/hr visitor's parking and $10 for everyone else (I'm a current student there). Their library is very small, and is difficult to navigate for lack of effective signage. The signage on campus is beautiful, but also hard to know your way around for an outsider. The student building employees are very helpful in answering questions. They have extensive hours at the help desk.
  • One of the best state universities in the nation. Beautiful campus
  • College can be rough for many of us because we have moved away and need new people in our lives. I know that Boise has one of the best and friendliest environments ever love this place!!!
  • We like your university because it's a good university
