Through fun trips, on and off campus events, and the Workshop Series, the FY REP ensures First Year students have the knowledge and access to resources on campus that will help them have a great and successful first year at college.

If you’re thinking of coming to Boise State, please consider living on campus and applying to be in one of our seven Living Learning Communities (LLCs). Only here can you live with 20-30 other students in your same college, have a faculty member just down the hallway, and get more support than you can imagine. If this isn’t incentive enough to check us out, please consider our LLC students have higher 4 and 6 year graduation rates than most other student populations on campus (only Honors is ahead of us). That means graduating with less debt and an increased chance of getting a job in your chosen field. Get more information about our LLCs.
