5 College Senior

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

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Our school is beautiful! Each building is unique and is very elegant! This campus has a gorgeous landscape, and plenty of space for students to gather and socialize. There is a garden right in the center of campus that makes for great scenery between your classes. All in all, This school doesn't just have great faculty and learning, but all around gives you a great wholesome environment to learn and grow throughout your time here.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus is large and has plenty of green space! There are many sports fields and a large gym which are available to everyone at anytime! there is also a massive building that has a large gym that has 10 full sized basketball courts that can be changed into tennis courts or whatever game you would like to play. In that same building there is a large indoor track and a large auditorium that holds about 15,000 students. There are also many facilities and areas that are designated for students to socialize or work on homework in a positive environment . You can tell that this campus was built with the student in mind.

3 College Senior

Facilities: There are good and bad things to a small private school. Sometimes I feel they are TOO strict on small and redundant details. I feel they make a big deal out of things that aren't worth any attention which takes too much time from everyone involved. But other than that, they do provide a personable experience here at school.

4 College Senior

Facilities: They do provide plenty of opportunities to get involved here on campus. Even sports are great, it's not too late for anyone to pick up a sport that they never even played before. Anyone can learn and the people in charge are completely open to helping out and helping the progress of people wanting to get better.

Many of the buildings are fairly new, while the rest have mostly been remodeled recently. The buildings are well kept, and vandalism never happens or is extremely rare. Each building has many desks in great condition, and food facilities are easily accessible. Almost all of the classrooms have a projector with a computer hooked up for the professor to present a wide range of material to the students.

The grounds are always kept fresh with flowers all summer long, and the walkways are kept safe from ice and snow during the winter. The University has a beautiful garden where many go to relax, walk, take portraits, and even get engaged. A large beautiful temple can be seen from almost anywhere on campus, and at night, the temple is lit up for a magnificent wonder that can be seen from 15 miles any direction. The cafeteria has been remodeled with all new equipment, and a student will always have a place to sit and relax. The library has computer labs and always has the resources necessary for a student to research and study. The University has many outside contracts with magazines, research sites, and many other useful memberships for students to enjoy while enrolled.

"Green" Initiatives
Recently, students have created an initiative to implement more recycling on campus. The school has also taken a big stand against creating more parking places and instead has asked students to walk when they can instead of driving. The school is also constructing a new auditorium and adding to the Manwaring Center to increase usability and efficiency to the old building.
School Slang
  • DTR: "Define the relationship." This is the name for the talk couples have when they're transitioning from just dating to something a little more serious.
  • FHE: Family Home Evening. Every Monday night, your ward family home evening group will get together to have a spiritual lesson and activity.
  • IF: Idaho Falls
Traditions
  • Devotional: Every Tuesday, the University invites a speaker to talk to the student body on a spiritual topic. Students gather for devotional and show they're prepared for the speaker by raising their scriptures.
  • Midnight 5K Run: Every semester, students run a 5K at midnight to support a given cause.
  • Pond Skimming: Students get together in the winter and slide across the ice and snow on the Upper Fields.
Urban Legends
  • "Ring by spring or your money back." Some people get married their first semester, but it's not like that for a lot of people. And you won't get your money back.
  • BYU-I really stands for BYU-"I do."
  • It's more of a fun fact than it is a legend: the most frequently stolen book from the library is The Miracle of Forgiveness by President Spencer W. Kimball. Who'da thunk!
  • Legend says that the Tuscany Place apartment complex was once home to a prostitution ring. But I'm not entirely sure that it's just a legend!
Favorite Things To Do
Go to student performances. Visit the BYU-I Gardens. Meet friends in the Crossroads. Work out at the Hart. Go sledding in the winter or play games in the summer on the Upper fields.
