  • Sep-12-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Go to the REC Center and swim, workout, play sports. Go to game center and bowl, play pool or ping pong. Ride the greenbelt, float the river, hike, walk around campus, etc.

    the campus is set at a beautiful location; you're right next to a river with the beautiful green belt right there for you to take walks, jogs, or have a picnic. it's also located in downtown boise, so there's a huge music and art scene!

    what isn't there to do? bsu's outdoor rec center always has opportunities for adventure and exploration- from rafting down the boise river to backpacking through the beautiful mountains. you don't need the outdoor rec center to enjoy these activities, however. for those who aren't as thrilled about the outdoors, there are plenty of movie theatres around, bowling centers, go-karting facilities, the boise towne square mall, numerous parks, and many other ways to have a good time.

    Boise is such a fun and diverse city from the shenanigans you can be apart of downtown, to watching the sunset at Table Rock there is never not something to do. The campus Rec center is a favorite to work out and stay in shape and with the largest indoor rock climbing gym in the Northwest there is also a way to blow off some steam climbing up the wall. The sports games at BSU are always a good time as well, Football games on the blue are something to experience, the atmosphere is absolutely electric and something to be a part of. This area of Idaho is in an epicenter of adventure and exploding economic opportunities come and explore for yourself to see what you're missing.

    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).
