3 College Student

Athletics: No sports beyond intramural and individual/group sports.

3 College Student

Scholarships: It takes a little time for everything to get sorted out, so procrastination is a bad idea. Get it all in early, and provide as much information as you can so you avoid any potential setbacks and have time to correct any that show up.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Their are a lot of activities on campus, but the town itself is pretty quiet. The locals seem to keep to themselves, and it's kind of like the campus is a completely different city.

5 College Freshman

Majors: There is a really wide variety of majors. They've even implemented a program where you create your own degree so that you can get the classes that you need for what you specifically want to go into.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship opportunity while I've been attending the school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Some people complain about the rules, but they're really not bad. They are helpful and essential to having a successful time at the university.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is always something to do. Especially on the weekends. There are even events going on during the week.

Campus Housing: It's really convenient and close to anything that a student would need. If they don't have a car, there is a store on campus that they can go to, to get the essentials.

Health & Safety: It's located in a small town. Which is nice. It has a safe feel to it. There are police around all the time though. So if anything were to happen then it would be solved quickly.

Computers: It's great. They even have a way for you to rent a computer if you aren't able to buy one. The internet can get a little ify at times, but it usually works great!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym and rec center are great. There are many courts for people. There is a GREAT indoor track as well.

Local Atmosphere: It's really great. It's easy to find things to do. You just have to have the right people around that will do those things too.

Weather: I LOVE the snow and cold. Rexburg has been wonderful for me! It's nice that when it starts to warm up, it's not a humid heat. Dry heat makes all the difference!

Off-Campus Housing: The housing is great! I've loved my managers. They're all willing to listen and help with any bumps that come along the way. The apartments are nice and clean!

3 College Freshman

Majors: The only bad part about having a small school is that some majors are left out entirely. The programs are growing exponentially by the semester though, so it is getting better.

4 College Freshman

Majors: All I had to do was say I wanted to be a major, then apply a year into the program to make sure I still wanted to do it. Easy peasy.

Off-Campus Dining: It's a tiny little town, so not much is going on, but there are the essential fast food places. Drive forty five minutes away, and there are many more options to choose from for real restaurants.

Weather: Freezing, snowy winters, hot sunny summers. Very dry all year round, but with good storms every once and while.

Off-Campus Housing: We follow the same rules as on-campus housing, and everywhere here is relatively cheap compared with anywhere else in the world.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There isn't one unless you make one. No drugs or alcohol allowed and the curfew is midnight. It is extremely annoying having to be treated like a child to attend a university with other adults who should know how to take care of themselves but don't because mommy and daddy did it all for them.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are no drugs or alcohol allowed on campus, and those who partake and get caught get kicked out. Strict, but necessary for the advancement of the students.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: The problem with the diversity of campus is not the school, but the attitude of the students who feel they are better than the average person. There is an air of haughtiness around certain groups of people, and things like gay and lesbian rights or abortion should not be brought up if you don't want to debate about it. The students often have absolutely no "real world" experience. Being somewhat of a convert to the church, I know the dirtier side of life and they tend to take their opportunity for granted here.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process is extremely easy. All you do is fill out the scholarship application and your fafsa and you're done. they do the rest.

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.
