Student Media

We are home to The Arbiter, University Pulse Radio, and Creative Hive Group. Our vision is to be the recognizable, distinguished resource that best represents the complete scope of campus and Boise life. We are a student-run organization that produces accurate and hyper-local information through non-partisan and socially responsible media. As a team of passionate students, we value professionalism, quality, relevance, inclusivity and creativity.

Get Involved and Stay Informed on Campus!

Connect directly to campus and fellow students! The Arbiter’s mission is to provide accurate, relevant, and trustworthy information to the Boise State community. University Pulse Radio provides students an opportunity to engage with audiences by allowing them to give their diverse perspectives in music, campus culture, and localized views of wider topics on a reliable platform. The Digital Content, Design, Sales, and Web/IT teams support these two media outlets.
