Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The BSU advisers were knowledgeable and friendly, they felt responsible for the success of their students and they worked directly with each student. The school took time to work with any issues I was facing and encouraged students to be involved with the school. BSU offered hybrid courses and had courses available for established students. I enjoyed how the instructors were passionate about their lectures and the educational material was interesting.

My degree program at BSU was in the Health Sciences program, I originally wanted to pursue my Public Health Degree however none of the Universities in Boise Idaho offered that program of study. So I ended up taking the Health Sciences program. Completing this degree has allowed me to pursue my Masters degree in Public Administration at UCF in Orlando. I have many opportunities available to me and I am very grateful to the advisers and instructors at Boise State.

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.
