NRHH Applications are open to all!! This is a great opportunity for all of our Chaffee Residents as well as other Broncos. Start applying soon!


Today we celebrate the accomplishments of Martin Luther King Jr. and the vision he had for this country. So on this day off from school, remember the sacrifices made by him to ensure equality for all. #MLK #ChooseChaffee


Thanks to all that came to bbq some hot dogs and starbursts. Special shoutout to @marlenetromp for joining us today!!



Paws what you're doing and take a look at Boise State Housing and Residence Life's throwback pup! I am Arrow and I am dog-gone cute. I gave to my Broncos by keeping all of my friends in Towers Hall (2015-2016), Boise State University Square (2016-2017), and Chaffee Hall (2017-2019) company. I made every ruff day better for my residents by offering them endless love and taking them on walks on the Greenbelt. I am working off campus now, keeping foster cats and dogs company during their transitions, but I will always love my #Broncos at heart.

If selected as the best Bronco pet, a humble honor I must say, I will convince my owner to take me back to campus for a few hours for some love, snuggles, and walks.

Proud of you, Reed! ♥️

Boise State junior Reed Osbrink grew up near the ocean and saw first hand how much the environment was affected by single-use plastics, but it was a chemistry course at Boise State last summer that inspired him to try and make a difference.

“Our class was tasked with making pipettes out of super strong borosilicate glass; instead of throwing the left over tubing away, I got the idea to make a reusable drinking straw.”

Reed began making glass straws by hand and giving them to friends and family. That summer he used materials and marketing strategies taken from a business class to start his own small business, StrongStraw, creating and selling the product online.

When not studying or working, the Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boise State University major can usually be found at the front desk in Chaffee Hall, working as a resident assistant and helping freshman navigate the college environment and find a sense of community on campus.

“My favorite thing about Boise State is the amount of opportunity for students to get involved,” he said. “Watching the residents discover their passion through a club, on-campus organization or event is what makes me the most happy.”
