Dear Incoming Freshman,
I am writing this article to spotlight Boise, Idaho as well as get you pumped for starting Boise Bible College in the fall. For some of you the next big step of your life is right around the corner and others it continues. Know that I am so excited for you to be joining Boise Bible College!
Please don’t fret as the fall gets closer! You have no reason to be nervous or scared about your transition to college. Boise Bible College is an amazing school preparing its students to succeed in all aspects of life. The college transformed my life and will transform yours as well!
Boise, Idaho is the “City of Trees”
The first thing that will help you get pumped for the school year is to know about the beautiful city of Boise, Idaho! Boise is known as “the city of trees” and the capital of Idaho. In my opinion, it is one of the Northwest’s greatest cities. You will quickly fall in love with the friendly people and atmosphere it provides. It’s a big and small city all in one. In addition, bicycles are prized in Boise, so don’t forget to bring yours.
You can do anything outdoors in Boise. We have rock climbing, mountain biking, river floating, fishing, skiing, or hiking, if you name it, you can do it within 30 mins of downtown. One of my favorite things to do is longboard down parts of the Greenbelt, a 25-mile long pathway located next to the Boise River. This is one of the most refreshing ways for me to spend any part of the day, and its located just seconds from campus!
The Spirit of Boise
Aside from being fun, Boise is also one of the prettiest places to call home. The most beautiful sites you will experience in Boise, Idaho will be the daily site of colorful hot air balloons during the spring or fall.
Sometimes, I overlooked these, but I am constantly blown away by the beauty they behold. These balloons canvas the skyline in the brisk mornings and warm evenings. They are a true sight to see!
So get pumped for this coming school year! God blessed us not only with an amazing institution to study His word, but also a beautiful place to call home while we prepare for a life of ministry.
So as we embark on our own individual journeys, let’s be excited to live in this beautiful city! Check out the blog Top 10 Things to Do in Boise, Idaho for more!
