4 College Senior

Facilities: I love the landscaping at the school. On a nice day it is great to walk around and see how beautiful the grounds are especially the gardens.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I think that there is a unique opportunity in following the honor code. It adds to the spirit of the campus.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I love my school for many reasons. The campus itself is clean and modern. It's not a party school, so drinking, smoking, parties, etc. and pretty much nonexistent. That doesn't mean there isn't anything to do. There is plenty of stuff to do on campus and around town. The programs themselves are great and the professors are very helpful.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: Life on campus is fun. The facilities are kept in good working order and use modern equipment. Although there is no formal sports team. There are student run sports teams for a variety of sports. The library is excellent. It has access to a plethora of resources and databases, and if there is something they don't physically have there, they have resources to order it for you for free. The campus is beautiful and has a good blend of building space to scenery (bushes, gardens, orchards, etc.)

3 College Senior

Facilities: We are a private university so the uniqueness comes from all the rules that we have in place; the rules stem from our Church beliefs, but they are taken too far in my opinion.
There are always a lot of activities going on though. You can usually find something to do a couple nights out of the week! They also do try and vary the activities so that there is something for everyone.

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.
