Boise State University Reviews
I am still a student here at Boise State University and I still love it here! Yeah...you'll always have some professors that go through the motions, but then! You meet the professors that will go out of their way, make room in their schedule, totally and completely honest, and motivates you even if you think you're at your lowest. I have made some many great and meaningful connections. I love it here and so did my mom and two older sisters. Now it's mine and younger sister's turn to finish our time here. And I'm super excited.
Boise State University - a great place to learn new knowledge and to create new social connections. It is located in Boise - one of the safest cities in the United States, and where the cultural diversity is respected. Boise State is the home of students from different states and countries, and it also has some interesting and exciting activities and programs for students. There are so many options covering different majors, minors, and courses; along with this, the student support at Boise State is really awesome!
It's a very diverse community where the people are friendly and the staff/faculty are very helpful, plus super informative and amazing resources on campus. Every one here is so nice and helpful, and they really do care about your education. It can be a bit overwhelming at at times because it's such a big university and there are so many majors to choose from, but it's all worth it to experience the bronco life!
