3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: They are all chain restaurants. Don see many authentic foods

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining has minimal options and very limited hours. The latest time that you can get any food source on campus is 9:00 PM which is extremely early for a college student's late night study. Food options are not adequate for vegetarians or vegans even though it is advertised as is.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Boise State University campus is so beautiful with a variety of attractions ranging from the Green Belt to the Bronco Stadium. It is a medium sized campus with many great facilities and resources. The student center is amazing.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Boise State sets itself apart from the rest by producing world class sports programs along with a variety of academics.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Overall, the Greek life is not as large as most urban campuses or campus towns like University of Idaho (whose Greek life is said to be very serious and sometimes even harmful).

5 College Senior

Scholarships: I have been very fortunate for my financial aid and scholarship experience here at Boise State. Much of it would not be possible without the generous support of donors.

Off-Campus Housing: The housing situations off campus vary from single room apartments to large houses.

3 College Senior

Majors: There are no extraneous admission requirements to enroll as a Physics student.

3 College Senior

Majors: There are pro's and con's- every professor is different and every course is different. Yet, overall I have been very fortunate with the Math department professors who have taught courses required for my major- they all have been amazing.

3 College Senior

Academics: To be a Physics Major at Boise State University entails hard work, long commitment, and a seemingly-endless new amount of subject matter.

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics at Boise State are, overall, diverse and educational. I have experienced many courses ranging from fun-lower division electives to difficult upper division core.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Boise is an amazing, metropolitan city with roughly 200,000 people. Overall, Boise has been ranked numerously as one of the top places to reside in the country.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Male and female attitudes vary among departments on campus, however, as a whole the social scene on campus is the main attraction for both girls and guys.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Overall, Boise State seems to have a very diverse class of culture, political affiliation, international exchange programs, scholarships, clubs, beliefs, and religious groups.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Boise State University is a great school with many resources geared toward student learning.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Any negatively impacting conditions on campus affecting student learning is almost instantly addressed.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Around and outside of campus are many places to dine for all breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Our overall campus environment here at Boise State is very safe. Occasionally, we have incidents of students walking on the Greenbelt experiencing verbal threats however it is something every metropolitan city will experience.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Now, I have only gone to one college, so I am going to be a little biased. I have not experienced my business program anywhere else. The work load has always been manageable and the professors always offer support and are willing to help. Boise State also supports getting an internship through college, and has many opportunities to get into internship programs.

College Freshman

Academics: well everything is in the above review, just look above.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It can honestly happen anywhere, but I have never personally heard of it happening. We have gone through talks with all new students about how serious this is. We also have many different options available to help some who has witnessed or been a victim.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Like I have previously stated, this is a college town. There is almost always something to do and something to see. We have many clubs and sports to join. It's a great place to live.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: We are a college city, so we do have a great selection of off campus housing. We don't have a good public transportation system, but the college is relatively close to everything. Regularly we, the students, bike almost everywhere, and the university actually promotes biking and going green.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I would say that our campus strictness, is really good. They are strict on the things that they should be strict on, and lenient on things that are minor.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: We actually have an awesome selection of campus dining. Sometimes, chipotle comes in and give free food as well.
