4 College Junior

Athletics: Going to Bronco games for free is a definite perk of going to BSU.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: If you are willing to share an apartment, you will find a place to live, but if you want to live alone, you might have trouble. Options are limited near campus, so a car or a love of biking is helpful.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat around campus, and if you are looking for something of quality, there are great choices downtown. Even if you are not planning a full meal, try the tasties at the many great coffee shops or visit the Saturday market for something new!

3 College Junior

Scholarships: A personal letter to the financial aid office is never amiss.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I had the fortunate opportunity to live in the BSU Selway suites for a year. Each suite includes 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a central living area, washer/dryer and a reasonably sized kitchen. They are fairly new, clean, and a very pleasant place to live. All utilities are included in the rent, and I never once ran out of hot water.

This is a great option for someone who likes to cook or doesn't eat enough to want to pay for a meal plan.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Rent here is very cheap for a little house, but it is hard to find the places close to campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Boise is a large metropolitan area with amazing food options!

3 College Freshman

Administration: Pretty average. Follow the rules or don't get caught breaking the rules.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not receive the financial aid I needed, but it's not the schools fault.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: You have to know the right people, but there is always something going on. Don't go out the first two and the last two weekends of the year-- cops will bust parties.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food options are not that bad, but they get old fast.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are average, but a great way to meet people.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I didn't find help from the campus for apartments I wanted, but the nice thing about Boise is that everything is close. Apartment complexes are within a five mile radius of the campus and it makes it convenient for even those without a car. The amenities they come with are nice and the prices are all very reasonable.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I honestly love going out to eat in Boise, because it is convenient, close and there are a lot of options for whatever you're feeling.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Being in the residency halls on campus come with a lot more rules than I thought. It's good most of the time, but sometimes its just plain annoying how often we're checked up on by staff. I know the rules are put in place for our own good, so I'm happy they stand.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's hard for average students to get financial aid. I do okay until the tests but I think my activities and grades should stand out, not just my GPA.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene is actually not too bad, but I'm not the type to go to many anyways. Its nice to wind down and relax sometimes but some people are just plain stupid sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is a variety on campus and I have no problem with it. If you don't want to go to the BRC, chain fast food places like Panda Express and Chick Fil A are open.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The newest residency buildings (Taylor and Keiser) are really nice and are the perfect places to live. Morrison and Driscoll, being the oldest housing buildings, could use some remodeling, but overall they are okay.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off campus is expensive as well as far from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a wide variety of food options not only in down town Boise but other places in Boise as well.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The strictness is highly talked about in the dorms (monthly floor meetings) students are well aware of the consequences. However its fairly common that students choose to violate these policies.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I'm a student paying for my education, however I'm very limited on my financial aid due to my parents income. I've applied for numerous scholarships, however because I'm not a minority and my parents income I'm very limited. This is extremely difficult when in school.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I've heard of extreme opinions on partying such as there is a lot of it, versus none at all.
