    They broadcast themselves as more of a business focused school, but I'm currently majoring in Anthropology and Human Anatomy, and let me tell you my professors are fantastic! They also have an ecampus option for anyone who can't quite make it on campus yet. Not to mention, if I have any questions or concerns I ALWAYS get a response within 24 hours that answers my issue.

    Don't expect paradise in Boise. It's a really fun college town, and I met a lot of great people here, but expect to spend a lot of money, expect to be screwed over by ALL of your professors, and get ready to be harassed by people on the Quad who have nothing better to do than push liberal, religious, or other propaganda on you.
