3 College Freshman

Academics: Almost every single professor I have come across is good at their job. They're good at teaching. However, when you get a bad professor at Boise State, you get a terrible professor. The workload is generally pretty reasonable, and most courses offer tutoring options with good tutors.

4 College Senior

Academics: Love many of the professors

3 College Junior

Academics: Too many foreign teachers in the engineering department!!

1 College Senior

Academics: They have such a weak selection of history classes available. I wanted to do Asian studies but it is nearly impossible with the classes to chose from.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Like all teams we have our good and bad seasons. It's really fun to watch though because of all the school spirit from both students and alumni.
