4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have the same amount of funding as bigger schools, but sports are still very important at BSU. We make the best out of it as we can.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wouldn't choose any other school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Boise state is a fun school. I have had a good experience with the school, teachers, and students. Glad to call myself a bronco and look forward to the years ahead until graduation.

Health & Safety: Boise State is a safe college. There is alot of sceurity provided. I feel safe and far from danger when at school. Everyone is calm and nothing seems to go wrong or out of the ordinary on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many safety precautions and resources out in place to make sure the campus is safe and that students are informed when there is an emergency.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are generally willing to help you succeed. Some really care about their students while others are fairly passive. Courses are not very challenging and it would be easy to succeed with a little hardwork.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are opportunities to get involved in internships and whatnot on campus and advisers can help in the process of looking for these opportunities.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not a huge sense of community when it comes to living on campus. The resident assistants are also not very helpful or caring and just really want to enforce all the rules.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love it because it isn't crazy and most of the houses get along really well. It's fairly laid back and non-Greeks and Greeks always are intermixed on campus and at campus activities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Students do not attend games/events very often, and when they do they often leave early.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Boise State and all the opportunities I have been given while attending. Although I feel this way, other students on campus do not reflect this. Most students don't have much school spirit and are just attending because it's "cheap". I wish more students and some faculty were as excited about the school as I am.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Partying is for the jocks. The 6th and Main club scene is geared directly for the young college kids who are trying too hard. Apparently, IDs are easy to come by, so the bars and clubs are embarrassing scenes.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Only certain groups of people throw parties. They all live near campus. They attract the same group of people every time, who all encourage each other to act crazy and drink excessively.

3 College Junior

Academics: The classes you need are only offered during certain semesters, which I assume is to ensure you will have to stay longer. Most of the professors don't care, and have fun treating students poorly. The workload can be extensive depending on the class.

2 College Junior

Diversity: You really can't say Boise State is at all diverse. The few minorities we have here stick with each other. The student government is white, faculty is white.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I would say most students use drugs recreationally. I feel like there is great peer pressure to drink and use drugs. Students are very reckless in regards to drugs and don't even care to know for sure what they are taking before they take it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: All the professors I've had so far have been engaging. They want their students to learn and take the next step in their careers after graduation.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have multiple job fairs a year. We also had faculty members who work at the career center come into class and teach us how to make the most of the career center and services.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From what I've observed on campus in terms of safety, I believe there isn't too much to worry about. A lot of students and faculty members seem to do their part in making sure the campus stays safe as a whole. If anything does happen, all students and faculty members are on a text alert list to ensure everyone's safety.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Being a student at Boise State University, you can't mention the school to anyone without them referencing our football team. Our football program has a huge fan base on campus alone. Over the past decade, the team has gained more and more fans from all over the country.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Don't know anything about it

Health & Safety: Campus Security and the R.A.s are helpful and always around

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like class styles and sizes for most of my classes. The majority of the professor's are helpful

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Getting a job on campus is relatively easy and they work around your schedule pretty well.
