Boise State Univeristy is in the states capital and even though there is a lot of peopel it still seems to be based on a small community standards. I attend BSU through another institution, and you can feel the spirti of BSU even when not physically on campus at all times.

The area is leaded with retail and shopping locations for those who love to shop, as well as a mountains and lakes to hike and boat in. The BSU had a dedicated faculty that is available and willing to help students when needed. BSU has a diverse population not only in the student sector but in the faculty and staff as well.

The thing that was unique about Boise State was the fact that I really like Idaho. It is a safe place to live, and the people are very nice. It is close to the mountains. And just abeautiful place all around.


Boise State University is held a general school for the state of Idaho, this means that just about anyone and everyone can come here. In this way the school ends up having an amazing mix of students, both traditional and non-traditional returning students. I've learned a lot of things from the people I meet and the friends I've made as well as from my professors in lecture. Boise State hosts numerous opportunities for a wide range of interests and so has the ability to accomodate most students.


There is a very strong sense of comunity pride at BSU. The local buisnesses actively engage and hire students, and the university is in the process of growing itself to fit the needs that students and faculty have expressed. I also enjoyed the aspect of having access to downtown and many buisnesses within walking distance of campus.


The surrounding community. Boise and the entire metro area is incredibly supportive of the school, its students, and teh activities of both. Nearly every employer that I know of is willing to work with student employees to give them the time they need for school and studying. So many different businesses and agencies within the community allow students to do internships, shadowing, and/or volunteer to gain practical knowledge, experience, and diversity. Overall I would say I've always felt like the community is there to help the students, as oppsed to just profiting off of them.
