Get all your stuff in on time, and show up to class, and there's no problems.
Joshua from Caldwell, ID
Don't put to much on your plate the first semester 12-15 credits max.
Keep your schedule with you the first two weeks.
If possible go to CareerFair, get a job on or close to campus.
go to orientation!
Rebecca from Nampa, ID
-Get your free bus sticker. Being a Boise State student, you can get your free bus sticker which allows you to ride ValleyRide all across the valley for free! This means you don't even need a car to get around!

-Don't be afraid to attend tutoring sessions or ask for help. Being a new college student, things seem overwhelming at first and you may be weary of asking for help. Don't be. Everyone goes through it, and everyone needs help at some time. Ask for some help.

-To succeed in class; form a study group. They are powerful. Together, your minds can solve what seems to be anything. Reserve a study room in the ILC and you can have peace and quiet as your group reviews lectures, completes homework, and studies for tests.

-Carry your student ID with you at ALL times! Wherever you go, it seems like Boise State students get discounts all the time. So, just carry it with you, especially if your riding the bus :)
Brandon from Nampa, ID
--Take your student ID everywhere you go, especially off-campus. You WILL get discounts.
--Visit the campus on a gameday (football). Even if you aren't interested in sports, you will love the energy level.
--Live on campus if you can, even if you already live close enough to commute. The experience is worth the extra money.
--Start volunteering in the community right away. There are plenty of places right downtown, within walking distance.
--Take a UNIV course your first or second semester. It will really help prepare you for the differences between college and high school.
--Try to experience everything (legal) before you rule it out.
Brandie from Meridian, ID
Study, study, study...and join as many clubs and organizations as possible (many of which won't take up much of your time). Get to know your professors! Take your time in completing your degree, take only one or two summer classes and no more than four classes during the regular semesters...otherwise you will not do well, especially if you work 25+ hours per week. Also - CJ majors...take Dr. Hemmen's Law in the Movies / Law in the Media course in the summer. It's a relaxing, easy (if you attend every class period) summer course in which you watch movies and have a short lecture afterwards. It's a simple course that puts your degree in perspective! It is also offered to non-criminal justice majors, which may be a little more difficult to complete, but Dr. Hemmens does a really great job at keeping the subject simple :-)
Alanna from Lexington, KY
It is just to keep up all of our school work, turning assignments in on time. It is very helpful for us to get involved in activities to be socialized which lead us to enjoy our school life.
Yonsoo from Boise, ID
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.
Nolan from Boise, ID
Get involved in everything that you can. It makes college life more interesting and more fun. There are so many opportunities for everyone so take all of them!
Adrianna from Mountain Home, ID
Rowdy crowds, painted blue and orange bodies, tailgating, and blue turf are right up your alley than this college is right for you! This school focuses on your achievement in academic studies but they also want you to kickback and have fun at athletic events.
Breanne from Stockton, CA
