College Senior

Nightlife: I choose not to attend nightlife events or do anything that would compromise my education at BYU-I so I would not know where to find those places.

2 College Senior

Nightlife: Nightlife is practically non existent in Rexburg. All the dance parties end before the town curfew.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: Depending on who you hang out with...the nightlife varies. Groups of friends do a variety of different things. Many students go out to the sand dunes or do other outdoor activities. There are not many places to go at night since everything closes kind of early...but if you are creative and can have fun no matter what you are doing....then you will love it!

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Parties are held on campus to keep living quarters quiet and peaceful. They are a positive impact on the students because they are clean and they are great social experiences.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

BYU-Idaho is not a party school. Nightlife activities range from catching a movie to attending a house party. That probably sounds pretty mild, and that’s because it is. Most of the big events that take place in Rexburg are funded by and held at the University. There are no local bars or clubs where students go frequently to hang out and party. This is partially because of the Honor Code and students' personal commitments to refrain from consuming alcohol, but also because Mormon culture approaches nightlife and parties a little differently than the typical experience portrayed in movies or in many U.S. cities. Most students’ idea of a party is something a little more similar to a sock hop with cake and punch or maybe some Pictionary or human battleship and other activities that designate more of a specified purpose other than simply partying.

BYU-I does have a lot of concerts and performances that students really enjoy. Events like Battle of the Bands, Acoustic Café, and Guitars Unplugged get a lot of quality student performances that students get really excited about seeing and make the effort to attend regularly. The University also hires other performers and gives students reduced ticket prices to see exceptional shows. A lot of the concerts also have dances afterward that students enjoy.
