    Campus is right on the Boise River, greenbelt, next to two parks and a zoo, within a 20 min to hour drive to hiking/biking trails, rock climbing, river floating, snow sports (in the winter), and lots of other things. There is a campus gym with pool and several fitness classes.

    During the summer you can float the Boise River that run down beside the campus. During the winter you can go to Bogus Basin for skiing and snowboarding. I even went to McCall with the International Students associations to go snow tubing.

    Boise State University has a gym with great exercise equipment, tennis courts, basketball courts, movie theater, game rooms, rock climbing, swimming pool, and more. There is never a dull moment here. They also have games and activities in the quad almost everyday, to give students something different to do.

    It seemed like there is a lot to do there with the activity centers on campus. I have been rafting down the Boise River before and will probably do that more while I am there.

    Boise State is really close to down town Boise so you can go to the movies or out to dinner there. You don't necessarily need a car because there's a lot to do on campus and I would encourage trying to go to most of the football and basketball games if you can.

    What isn't there to do? Want to see a concert? Go to the Knitting Factory. Feeling like a movie? Go to the Edwards Cinema across the bridge. How about just a stroll in the park? There are two parks right next to campus. Maybe you like mountain biking? Go to the foothills only a few miles from campus. Road bikes are more your type? Boise is a vibrant bike city. Or you could to Bogus to snowboard and ski. In the summer you can float the Boise River or go to the Boise Music Festival. All in all, there are a million things to do in Boise and surrounding areas that would make even the meanest grouch crack a smile.

    There isn't honestly that much to do for fun at BSU concerning the city, Boise. The major activities many of the students do is go to parties, go to the mall, walk on the greenbelt, go to the movies, or laze about. You have to make your own fun here. However, in the neighboring city, Meridian, there is a major shopping district that is quite popular along with Big Al's and Dave and Busters.

    BSU and the surrounding area has a TON of things to do! The SPORTS at the school are fantastic! We have the BLUE field for football, a great basketball team, and all the facilities are top knotch! The town of Boise offers so much more as well. With the Boise river running along side of the campus, to beautiful parks nearby, the community always has events going on. Never a dull moment. Taco Bell Arena on site, offers Big Name concerts as well. It is always going on!
