Boise State University Reviews

21 reviews
The coursework are engaging and very useful. I currently attend Boise State, where I am continuing a master's degree in public administration. When I have been here, I had encountered a wealth of communication between classmates and faculty where student opinions are highly valued, respected, and, when further explained, achieved. I have also experienced a high passion by the School of Public Service to continuously innovate its programs and grow them to encourage uniqueness and support student success. Boise State viewed in its academics, but I genuinely believe this school can go 'toe-to-toe' with academia's substations. I can say without a rejection that my time at Boise State has challenged me in exciting ways, facilitated growth in areas I never thought to consider previously, and has more than satisfied my academic desires to learn about the range of public policy and management comprehensively. I love Boise State, and I wish for them the best.

Boise State offers excellent courses with various options for educational growth. They have made great strides in offering a balance between online and in person courses, especially in this time of a global pandemic.
I had a wonderful experience attending Boise State University as an undergrad. It was easy to get around campus and the environment is great. People are very friendly around campus. There were a couple of my favorite spots to sit down and study. The campus is growing and a lot of improvements have been made. I'd like to see more parking available, they do have a performing arts theater that fills up with events and takes up a lot of the parking space. Overall Boise State is great. You have to bee there to see it all.
