    What isn't there to do for fun in Boise? There is something for everyone in Boise. The Treasure Valley has half a million people living in it, so there are a lot of different types of people. There are so many places to go and eat out, lots of arcades, strip clubs for people 18 and over, bars especially for upper classmen who are over 21, and so on. Not only that, but the university itself has a plethora of clubs, club sports, and campus activities. The campus often has concerts and different sort of events like that that happen at the Taco Bell Arena. The home Football games are also a huge deal at BSU. I miss living in Boise because of the wide variety of things to do and places to go there. Even if you're more of a small town or country type of person, you don't have to go far to get into that atmosphere. I competed and ran the rodeo club here for a while, and so I was always riding horses down for people that lived in Kuna and Middleton, and I found work at a few different boarding barns working with horses and cleaning stalls. In the Spring and Summer, there's a lot of amateur and pro rodeos to compete at as well in western Idaho, and the Northwestern states as well. I was in Oregon and Washington a lot in the Spring for our college rodeos. It's a fun town. However, I did have to drive about an hour west into Ontario to ever get on any practice horses.

    BSU is a five minute walk into downtown boise for food, movies, shopping, and concerts. BSU also has a great outdoor activity program if you like outdoors idaho things.

    Outdoors people will be in heaven because their is a bit of everything, climbing, hiking, biking, hot springs, camping spots galore. Downtown night life is awesome once you turn 21. Bronco athletics is huge and we also have the Idaho Stampede (NBA D-League affiliate) as well as Idaho Steelheads (Semi pro hockey).

    You will never run out of things to do in Boise if you are an outdoorsy person. The river runs along campus and the school arranges rafting, skiing, and hiking trips to always keep the students active. Not to mention football, which is pretty much why everyone goes to BSU in the first place.

    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.
