Boise State University will offer classes in Meridian starting in August, at a site formerly occupied by the University of Phoenix. Classes that BSU previously offered at Columbia High School in Nampa will be at the new Meridian site, along with graduate programs in bilingual/ESL education and literacy education; all are aimed at allowing BSU students who live in the west end of the Treasure Valley to complete some bachelor's or master's degrees without traveling to the Boise campus for classes.
“Our desire is to complement and support the courses being offered at College of Western Idaho in Nampa and ease the transition for students who transfer to a four-year program at Boise State,” said Peter Risse, associate dean for BSU’s Division of Extended Studies. “The new site is ideal with easy access off the interstate and Eagle Road.” It's located at 2950 Magic View Lane, Suite 188, in Meridian; there's more info here.
