    Jacob Allen

    Pre-Nursing Peer Advisor

    My hobbies include playing basketball and golf. There is nothing better than hitting the links on a Sunday afternoon with my dad. I also love playing intramural sports here on campus, it is a great way to connect with other students and compete. Lastly, I enjoy doing anything on the water. From paddle boarding to jet skiing there is always something fun to do. Other than that, I love spending time with family and friends in my free time.

    Why I love Boise State I have never felt more at home than I do here at Boise State. I knew from the moment I stepped on campus that this is where I belong. As a student, I have had such good experiences with my professors. I can tell they truly care about my success and want what is best for me. As an advisor, I have interacted with many students and know without a doubt that we have some of the best people going to school here!

    Advice to future Broncos enjoy all of your years here at Boise State. I am in my junior year and it feels like I was just a freshman yesterday. This is going to be one of the hardest, most confusing and challenging times of your life. However, it is going to be some of the best years you will ever have. You will make friendships that last a lifetime and learn so many new skills. Do your best in all of your classes but always set aside time to enjoy life!
