[Graphic: WHAT IS IT LIKE LIVING ON CAMPUS AND FINDING A ROOMMATE?]
[Mady]: Living on campus is so much fun as a student. I met my roommate for the first time on Move-In Day, and it was super cool ’cause we really connected right off of the bat. There are different things that kind of come up when you live with someone for the first time, and that’s completely natural. A lot of people clean differently at home, or they put their clothes away differently than you do, or wash their dishes differently. So it’s important just to keep an open mind and just know that everyone’s on the same page, everyone wants to live together well. You just have to find that communication and balance.
[Graphic: WHAT ON-CAMPUS JOBS ARE AVAILABLE AT BOISE STATE?]
[Mady]: There are a ton of on-campus jobs for Boise State students. You can be a tour guide like I am. You can sit behind a desk and answer phone calls if you want, maybe find some time for some homework in between. You can work at the rec center. They’re 90% employed by students, so that’s a good one to start. So an on-campus job is never out of reach for someone, and they’re a great way to meet new people, be involved on campus, all while making some money.
[Graphic: WHAT TIPS DO YOU HAVE FOR INCOMING STUDENTS?]
[Mady]: One tip that I have for incoming students when you’re looking for schools, deciding on what school that you wanna go to, know that you’ll be fine in anything that you choose. Every school has their perks. In Boise, though, I really, really appreciate the amount of things that there are to do off of campus. So whether you are going hiking and going outdoors, or you’re going to a football game, or going downtown, there’s an endless amount of things for you to do. And there’s also a lot of places for you to live off campus as well. There are many places to live and work that are really close and kind of tie you to the city, tie you to the school, and that’s what’s made my Boise State experience just so positive. And getting involved with everything that Boise State has to offer, all of the clubs and organizations, has really made me have so many ties and connections to campus. And I’m looking back on my four years and loving every bit of it.
