I have enjoyed Boise State University! I currently am a full-time student, working a full-time job. I took the opportunity of attending an online program for Business Management strictly online. Let me tell you, this has not only given me the opportunity to continue on achieving my Bachelor’s but also provided a less expensive cost! The best thing is I can pursue my career, without moving from my home! Great University! There are online tutors and advisors that are available when you need them!
Local university located in a hidden gem of a city. Close to tons of outdoor recreation opportunities (e.g., skiing, hiking, backpacking, biking, etc). Campus is tidy and most of the administration is very helpful and thoughtful. The Graduate College is growing and values student input. Very reasonably priced for a graduate degree program!
