    There is a Starbucks on campus. My opinion: best thing ever and it is in the library so you can grab a coffee and go study.

    Boise offers all 4 seasons. The summers are hot, with lakes and fun everywhere to offer water activities. We have the local mountains 40 minutes away for fantastic skiing and cross country skiing. Really you can't get everything that BSU & Boise have to offer anywhere else.
