Meridian, Idaho

The Northwest Lineman College Idaho campus is located in the heart of the third largest metropolitan area in the northwest. Featuring diverse landscapes, the Boise area has become well known not only for its urban setting with a small town feel but also as an ideal location for the outdoor adventurist.

Consistently voted one of the best small cities in America, Boise has a culture and vibe that’s all its own. The downtown area is known for its restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and top-rated local breweries. Just a few blocks from downtown is the Boise Green Belt, a pedestrian pathway that accompanies the Boise River through 25 miles of scenic landscapes and parks. Some of the most beautiful mountains, rivers, hot springs, and lakes in the country are just a short drive away.

From Boise State University Broncos football games on their famous blue turf in the fall, to snowboarding and skiing just 25 minutes away at Bogus Basin in the winter. The highly acclaimed Tree Fort Music Festival takes over downtown in the spring and hot summer days are spent floating down the Boise River. There is always something to look forward to in the Treasure Valley of Idaho.
