Boise State University

The students, faculty and staff at Boise State University are known for their grit and ambition. While we may be most famous for our iconic Blue Turf, we have built a metropolitan doctoral research university in the Northwest, with our faculty and student researchers working to answer some of the most intriguing questions facing us today. Located at the base of the Rocky Mountain foothills in Idaho's capital city, Boise State University is the largest institution of higher education in the state. With seven colleges and a choice of nearly 200 degrees and certificates, Boise State has over 24,000 students.
