Boise State University Reviews
Review Boise State University
Boise State has been a great experience for me. I have lived in Boise my whole life and for the longest time I thought that I would never stay in state and go to Boise State University. When it came down to it I just could't find a different state that offered a university as good as Boise State. This college offers a home away from home experience, and you can be sure that you will make a ton of new friends with the same interests as you. I think that the university staff and educators all try really hard to provide a good experience. I know that I have been pleasantly surprised by how well my classes have been going this semester. As a freshman, I thought that my college classes would be extremely hard and that my professors wouldn't help me with anything, and that's not true at all. The athletic department provides a community feel, the campus is great, there is always something to do, student life is awesome, and the party scene is fun. You won't regret coming here!
This school is fantastic! Right as you step off the plane you are placed in the beautiful city of Boise and see the campus immediately. As you first step on campus, you see lively people riding their bikes and running along as it is an extremely fit community. And if you arrive in the fall, you will taste first hand how amazing college sports can be. The entire city shuts down to watch their football team play and everyone is excited for it. Their studies are also superb in that they have nearly every major there is and many great teachers to help guide you on your path to success. Also, everything is relatively small so that it is easy to get around. Yet, it is big enough to give people the spacious, university lifestyle. Anyone who comes on campus will feel welcomed and appreciated into the family. Overall it is a nice paced environment with great people and a city that is growing by the day and waiting for more people to come and enjoy it.
I almost didn't come to school here because of the rating on the website, but now I'm here and can tell you that these ratings aren't a true representation of the school whatsoever. I can say I love this school and Boise with my whole heart. If you don't like football you better learn something because gamedays are the best! I live in Chaffee hall which is super social and I've met my best friends through it. The school is awesome and everyone here loves it. The place is a hidden gem. Basically every other person is from California and another plus is there's tons of fun things to do in the city and in the mountains. Come to school here!
