    I have lived in Boise most of my life and I am hitting the point in my life where I need to get away and experience new things. Boise State is a great University but it's not right for me.

    Boise State s a small city and not as busy and complex as other cities in the US. Boise State University lies a perfect location surrounded by hills where you can go skiing during winder or go trekking during summer. This place is absolutely easy to get mingled in. At Boise State University you have all sort of activities to have fun and get together with friends. Very often, I goto the Student Recreation Center for playing Basketball, Ping Pong, Volleyball and Swimming. At the Student Union Building, we have 10 Pool boards and Bowling alley. These are some great places where you can make friends. During summer time, we enjoy rafting in the Boise river. We have several organizations where every student can find their thing of interest such as RJ, musician, soccer player etc. One of the biggest event is the Football. We have a big Football stadium here at Boise State University and during a game day every one is excited to goto the field. Tickets are free for students. Those without the ticket come out of their house, put on tents, have tailgate and watch the game on TV. Boise State University is a fun place to be!

    One thing that I know for a fact is that the Boise area is one of my favorites. It seems that everyone is always in a decent mood at least. If you smile at someone, you will get a smile back. If you have your hands full with books or anything else that a college student could get tangled up with, you know that there will be someone there to open a door for you. If you are not much for cold weather however, I recommend searching elsewhere. Boise, and Idaho for that matter, has only two seasons: Winter and Summer. There is not much of an in between. Fortunaetly if you are an outdoorsy type of a person than the Idaho area is perfect for you. Not only do we have a few amazing ski and snowboarding resorts, there is also the world famous rapids that our rivers have to offer. There are also amazing hiking areas and biking routes. Boise State University also makes sure that the students have offers annually for different types of trips to do different outdoor activities for cheap.
