Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Marian is a small school. This comes with pros and cons. The pros are that the staff to student ratio is small, meaning that students are given personalized instruction and attention. The cons are that the smallness of the school includes a lack of diversity in the student body and limited resources on campus. Overall, a good school and solid education.

Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Boise State University offered a great program for Supply Chain Management. I feel that the program allowed me to understand the basics of Supply Chain, and has set me up for a great entry level position within Supply Chain. The curriculum was easy to manage, and was not too demanding. The professors were always available, and had a myriad of work experience under their belts that helped us better understand the applicable topics of Supply Chain, and how they apply to various industries.

Degree: Athletic Training/Trainer
Graduation Year: 2017

I am originally from Arizona and was recommended to attend Boise State University (BSU) by my High School Athletic Trainer. All I knew about BSU was that they had a top notch Athletic Training Program and that they were home of the Smurf Turf. I decided to take a campus visit and upon an 18 hour car drive, I realized that this campus and city would be my future home, The surrounding area is covered in lush green trees and grass with the Boise River running right next to the campus and the foothills literally in the backyard. The people within this community were all very friendly and helpful and finally the campus was clean and full of welcoming faces! Once my undergraduate career at BSU started in the Fall of 2013, I was blown away. I was quickly engaged in extracurricular activities and taken under the wing of a program director who has helped me every step of the way to my commencement. However, the help from Dr. Steiner was not all I loved. My second year at BSU, I was accepted into the Athletic Training Program and was in awe with how invested every professor in the Kinesiology Department was for each student. Every classroom I entered full of questions, I would leave with a clear understanding and a sense of accomplishment. Thanks to this excellent academic environment, I finished my degree in four years and attained the confidence and knowledge to be a competent and proficient Athletic Trainer. Attending BSU has been the best decision I have made and my time here has opened the doors for me to attend graduate school at Western Michigan University Fall of 2017. For anyone that is looking for a school that has a lively student population, academic success, opportunities outdoors, or the next step to their future, I highly recommend taking a visit to Boise, Idaho and ground yourself to the pristine foundation that Boise State University has to offer!

Degree: Geophysics and Seismology
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending Boise State University was an experience I will always treasure. Boise is certainly a hidden gem of the USA and the entire town unites around the university, (especially when it comes to football and the athletic department). The many branches of administration put a great deal of effort into promoting diversity, academic progress, health awareness, and leadership. I would best describe the student body as having an abundance of enthusiasm and spirit. Student government and the academic advising office work hard to support their peers both intellectually and socially by planning a wide variety of campus events and workshops. There is always something exciting going on at campus and there are countless opportunities to make new connections or get involved. The professors are especially engaged with and supportive of students who reach out and demonstrate any effort in their classrooms. After expressing a candid interest in fieldwork to my professor, I became involved with advanced seismic research and eventually got to participate in graduate-level courses, which really made my resume stand out on future applications. I never felt like my back was against a wall or that I didn't have someone in my corner- I would absolutely recommend Boise State for college consideration.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2013

Boise is a nice college town. It would do some good to have a bike. Otherwise parking a vehicle on campus could be pricey. The library is a nice quiet place to study, the higher you go up the more tranquil the noise. I attended four years here, and even to this day use the public computers for when i have to write a research paper for my job.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Boise State University is a great school with very supportive professors and advisors. The engineering department has interaction with NASA programs which is what brought me there initially. My experience at BSU overall was very good. If you will be living on campus, my recommendation is to apply to the Living Learning Communities as you will live in the same dorm facility as other students with the same major as yours. You make great lifelong friends and you also have someone to study with.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Great, supportive staff. I am an online MSW student and I am really impressed with the logistics, and they seem really on top of things. Prior to this school, I attended a prestigious private university (not online) and they didn't have it together the way this distant online college has. I think you will learn most about social work in the field, and the program is there to guide and support you during your learning experience. The financial aid office is highly organized and easy to deal with.

Degree: Finance and Financial Management Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

Boise State University is in a great location for students that want to experience the outdoor while studying. The school is by downtown, the Boise river, and only a short drive from lakes and mountains. Professor also want to watch their student succeed, so they offer many tutoring sessions outside the classroom. The school offers many services to students such as legal, career, and many others.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

The college was good. The counselors are amazing to work with. I would not nessesarily get a criminal justice degree it is not very essential for the field. There is not much to offer with this degree. I do think the teachers could have been more knowledgeable however I am returning to earn my graduate.

Degree: Spanish
Graduation Year: 2012

My review is a little different. I graduated from Boise State University thinking I would be done. The Spanish program was great there. The instructors were mostly bilingual and from Latin countries. My advisor was extremely helpful. The classes had a great mixture of native and non-native speakers which made learning through conversations much easier. I decided recently to go back to school to pursue a medical degree. I needed some prerequisites in the sciences so I went to an academic advisor in the health sciences at BSU to get some information. She was very helpful and informed me that it would be much cheaper to attend College of Western Idaho, and they offer the exact same classes. I am currently enrolled there now. Thanks to the instructors and advisors at BSU, I speak fluent Spanish, I had a great experience at school, and now I am continuing my education and saving money because an advisor gave me unbiased information.
