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 Sophomore

Nightlife: There's not really any clubs or bars in town at all. You could get a beer at Applebees if you really wanted to, but that's about it. There are 2 smallish movie theaters in town, and they're cheap. There is a little restaurant/venue called Sammy's that hosts local music stuff.

Most of the parties are just when people decide to go have a fire somewhere with friends, or if there's a ward party or something going on.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I have only done online classes so far

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Its great because we dont have to worry about wild crazy drunken parties. People still know how to have fun without that stuff. Lots of people just get together and hang out with friends.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Since this is an LDS school there are very strict rules for night time including a curfew and for both genders in the dorms. Off campus housing must be approved with pretty much the same rules.

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.
