Idaho is in the business of higher education, and business is good.

Enrollment at BSU is up 8% for 2016, after seeing no increases the past two years.

Why is Boise State growing so fast? BSU president Bob Kustra has a theory:

Our new degree programs, a robust student experience and expanding campus infrastructure have only strengthened our profile regionally and nationally.

U of I went up 3.6% respectfully, it's first positive gain in enrollment since 2012.

Idaho State University didn't fare quite as well. They saw a drop of 1.4% for 2016.
