3 College Sophomore

Athletics: BYUI doesn't officially compete with other schools. Sports and athletics are done in intramurals and teams play against each other within the school . Still fun though.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school does not have any sports teams. With that said, there are a lot of intramurals and rec sports for students to join. You can always find people to join in on a pick up game, or to just mess around. The facilities are all really good, though they are aimed more at non-athletes.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Since the Honor Code prohibits drinking and drugs, students don't really go to bars. There are some off-campus parties, but they usually aren't too bad. Rexburg has a lot of fun things to do, but a lot of people will go to Idaho Falls for any sort of nightlife.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are a ton of opportunities for financial aid through the school. Along with the church, the school strives to award all students who qualify with some sort of financial aid. They have awards specifically for your class and also for how well you do in academics. If you take the time to fill out the applications, you will probably get at least one scholarship. Don't be afraid to look around for scholarship though, they are literally everywhere, you just have to look around and prepare for them.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: Some of the buildings feel like you are back in high school. My favorite building though, where I take most of my classes, feels extremely professional. The school strives to have as much of the equipment you will use in the work force as possible, and makes sure it is up to date. There is an amazing indoor track and gym that has tons of courts for different sports. There is also an amazing auditorium used for weekly devotionals and special performances that is state of the art and really incredible to be in. All buildings on campus are clean and well organized. The school has several area's where students can hang out from different organizations and also to study. Overall, there is a lot of room for students to work or play.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The majority of the students here are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It's a church run school, so it makes sense. Students come from all over the country and the world to come to school here, and it is a lot of fun meeting new people. My roommates were from all different parts of the country, and in several of my classes I had international students. The school offers a lot of financial aid along with the church, so regardless of your economic background you can still come here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love going to school here. The student population is pretty small, maybe 17,000 at the most. The biggest class I have been in was maybe 80 kids, but the majority is about 30 kids. Your professors really get to know you and are always available for help. The campus has a really great feel to it, almost care free. The foundation requirements (General Ed's) can get a little annoying, but every school has them. Once you get into your major, you start to have a lot of fun and learn so much.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network here is great. Instead of asking for money from alumni's, the school just asks that alumni's allow students to contact them about work in their related field and for them to act as a mentor to students. There are always internship fairs on campus for different majors, so you will find something that suits your taste. Throughout the semester, students can go on expeditions to different cities and meet with employers about job openings. The school really wants you to get out there and start working as soon as you graduate. They will help in anyway they can, from setting up appointments to helping you practice for an interview.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't the cheapest place to live in town, but they aren't the most expensive either. I lived on campus my first two semesters and it was really nice. The dorms are not co-ed, so girls have their own complex's and boys have their own. All dorms have two shared bedrooms, a kitchen, living room, and bathroom. There is one dorm complex that does not have a kitchen, and there are three shared bedrooms. The school just announced the construction of new dorms on campus and they look really nice. Everything is close by in the dorms, you can walk anywhere on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: In order to go to the school you must sign an Honor Code. This pretty much says you agree to abide by the Honor Code and follow the rules of the church. There is no drinking or drugs on campus. The code is pretty strict, but it is this way for the student's benefit. It is so nice not having to worry about alcohol or drugs when I go to a party or to another person's dorm. Since everyone on campus has agreed to live by the standards in the Honor Code, it makes a really nice and peaceful atmosphere on campus. You don't have to worry about wild parties or anything, and there is a curfew for being back in your apartments. Sometimes the Honor Code seems to strict, like modesty standards, but most of the students have grown up following these standards anyways.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a ton of off-campus housing available for students. Rexburg is growing like crazy, so there are always new complex's being built with state of the art features. All housing must follow the University Honor Code, which really isn't that bad. Most complex's are either split into buildings for just boys and another for just girls. Sometimes complex's are strictly for boys or strictly for girls. The majority of the complex's require you to share a room, you can pay extra for your own room though. A lot of the companies that own the complex's do a lot of activities to promote themselves around town, and they are always great.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The Cross Roads has a lot of great options for food. There's italian, mexican, and chinese food, a grill for burgers, a sandwich shop, and Chick-Fil-A. They have a great bakery which has a crepe bar, and also serves Krispie Kreme donuts. The school also has several student run food stands throughout the year which are always fantastic. The only downside is the bakery stands and some of the other smaller food stands close at 2 pm, though you can still buy left overs. The Cross Roads itself closes at 7 pm, so there really isn't anything on campus for really late night meals.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of chain restaurants, like Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Domino's, etc. These are great in a pinch and are probably two blocks from campus. On top of the chain restaurants, there are a couple restaurants unique to the area. Everyone knows to eat at least once at the Taco Bus, and there are just different more formal restaurants around town too.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The people are incredibly respectful to people's faces. They are all kind of stuck in a teenage state of mind since we don't have full control over ourselves. The rules created by the institution seriously limit us on what choices we can make. The people are attractive. And the vast majority are so nice. It is awesome. Girls can be catty though. There is a lot more judgement.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: They will kick you out if you break the honor code. People know this so they lie all the time because they do not want to want to risk their degree. They will boot your car if you are even 5 minutes late. Protests are not tolerated at all.

5 College Senior

Facilities: they really do the best out of any school. They have entire departments working to help the special needs kids.

College Senior

Greek Life: There is not greek life

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Its can be complicated. Getting a place is super easy. You get assigned roommates which can cause a lot of drama. Also it is not usually worth the price. They charge roughly 1200 a person per apartment which usually holds 6 people. which for an apartment complex that has 36 apartments is 216 people paying that much money. Meaning they are getting $259,200 per semester. Utilities, water, and internet and cable do not cost that much.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My professors are great. They really help me succeed. And really know their stuff.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I don't really know. Most people have jobs I think

3 College Senior

Scholarships: They offer a lot of assistance. I need more help though

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It is almost all fast food chains. Everything closes at 10 pm. I like one of a kind higher quality places and none of them are here.

1 College Senior

Diversity: The school is 95% white, republican. It is a private Mormon school so it is expected to be religiously homogenous. I think we would be more beneficial for all the students to be more diverse.

2 College Senior

Nightlife: It is really under ground. People drink and take drugs but they hide it really well. I have avoided most of it. I don't want to be involved.

3 College Senior

Academics: I find it difficult because of how small the school is.

BYU-Idaho professors and other students take a lot of interest in students personally, to help them achieve their academic goals and improve their overall well-being. They care about how you do in classes, what you have to contribute to the school, and what you're doing besides school to enhance your lifelong learning. The BYU-I experience really becomes what the students make it. Students who just study to get by learn to do the bare minimum with the least amount of effort, and students who want to make the most of their education and learn and grow from being a student work longer and harder in a variety of pursuits that span beyond academics.

It may be hard to believe that there are so many opportunities to develop skills in a given area from attending a little school in Rexburg, Idaho. But just as BYU-Idaho takes huge steps in innovating learning and maximizing resources, students learn to be innovative hard-workers who know how to problem-solve and communicate effectively. Most students who realize the potential they have in being admitted to this school and who take advantage of the opportunities offered here quickly learn how to make their BYU-Idaho experience worthwhile.
