Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

I had tremendous technology support that was very timely. Most instructors gave great feedback on assignments. My learning curve was steep so the support and feedback was fundamental to my success. The server was down a couple of times which made assignment submissions just before deadline, scary. I am loving online learning and BSU!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2014

I absolutely loved this program! I was highly active in campus life and built relationships with the faculty and I believe this is why I had such a great experience. The workload is heavy and you write a lot!!! But I felt it was worth it and prepared me for writing a thesis. The campus itself is huge with plenty to offer but the parking is horrible and can be expensive. Be prepared to walk, even if you have an on campus parking permit. But the campus is beautiful and full of history. I could not be happier with the education I have received and the friends I have made.

The pros are that it will enable me to understand more about teaching bilingual students and the ways of their culture. Pro- opens me up to understanding that all students learn in a different way Con- the cost of the programs is difficult

Degree: Biology

For an extremely low stipend compared to other schools, you can work with all the incompetent and lazy people in the hot, miserable city of Boise, ID. Additionally, on football Fridays, you can expect NOT to find anyone in their office, because it is far more important than their jobs (which they don't do anyways).

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

My professors are knowledgeable and compassionate. They truly care about student success and are willing to think and work outside the box when needed. I've enjoyed interactions with my classmates and have created an awesome professional network of support. My only struggle is with online classes as they are not a personal favorite of mine. I feel disconnected in online courses and don't mind using technology in class, but I prefer the face to face interaction that physical classes provide. The view from campus is breathtaking as well:)

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program at BSU is a strong program and the particular one I am in is a cohort setup as well. This allows great opportunities to get to know people over the course of 2 years, and feel comfortable with them. As well as great opportunity to learn from your peers in a welcoming environment. The new business building at BSU is also something to be proud of. The building is stunning and equipped with the latest technology, a cafe, and lots of study space. I love it. I honestly so far cannot say anything negative about this program.

I am very excited to be in the educational program. I love that it is all online and I am able to do it at my own pace. Every person I have needed to contact has responded within hours. They have walked me through every question I have had.
