Boise State is famous for our blue football field, but that Blue Turf is more than just a place where we cheer on our Broncos. It’s a symbol of the innovative mindset that drives all we do.
We call it ‘Blue Turf Thinking.’ And it’s open to anyone and everyone who dares to think differently.
It’s about breaking norms, blazing new trails and imagining the possibilities of what could be. It’s having the opportunities of a big city without giving up the excitement of the great outdoors. It’s maximizing your potential and achieving more with the support of a tight-knit community. It’s taking risks that matter and solving real-world problems.
Located in the heart of Idaho’s rapidly growing capital city, Boise State is a public, metropolitan research university with over 200 areas of study led by accomplished faculty. Discover for yourself why US News & World Report ranks Boise State in the Top 50 national universities for innovation.
