Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

I graduated with my MSW via a satellite campus, so I didn't have to deal with any of the on campus issues referenced in other reviews. I had the opportunity to attend in person classes with some incredible instructors. The materials were relevant and I learned a great deal. However, the program is now changing for all distance learning students to an online degree. There will be no more in person classes and I think that is going to take away much of the learning experience. My score for my education would be 5's all the way across, but I am taking the scoring down to reflect the current status of the program. I would not recommend anyone looking to get their Master's in Social Work to complete an online college. There is too much information to learn.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2009

It's a great place, the Marketing program was great. There are a lot of resources, but they aren't well advertised. I wish I had known about them before I graduated.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

Because BSU is a football-centric university, students occasionally suffer the consequences. Our SUB lawn was converted into a practice field for the football team, for example, nevermind the fact that they have two other practice fields and the stadium. On gamedays, parking for students was sacrificed to those football fans who paid to park there. Classes/professors sometimes seemed to favor football players and give them additional extensions or privileges. HOWEVER, Boise State is a great university that truly fosters students' growth. I felt enriched every time I was on campus. It's beautiful, and you really are exposed to all different types of cultures and learning styles. I highly recommend BSU if you don't mind taking the backseat (to football) as a priority once in a while. Boise is a fantastic city in which to be a college student. The experiences can't be beat.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2003

The College of Business & Economics (COBE) was all in one building. It was convenient, held multiple computer labs, and we studied with the many of the same students in the various classes. Most of the professors had Tenure and overall I thought it was a great learning experience.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

Boise State is is quickly turning into a destination school. However it is still a commuter campus and difficult to make friends in class. It's main focus is on sports and athletes will always be given top priority. I had some great, reputable instructors. Your college experience is what you make of it and how much you put your self out there and become involved.

Degree: International Business/Trade/Commerce
Graduation Year: 2013

Boise State is an okay university. There were some aspects that were good and some that were not so great. I'd recommend living close to campus as parking is a nightmare and you will be booted for every event. Tuition has gone up each year for the last several years so make sure to keep that in mind as you apply for scholarships or work to pay for your education. The professors vary from poor to outstanding. Don't let the less than great professor's get you down. I learned a lot while at BSU but I feel that the university needs to focus more heavily on improving the quality of education. Group projects for every class (in the business program) is not beneficial. There are some outstanding programs at Boise State. Make sure you do your research to ensure the program you want is one of them.
