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.

Nightlife: There is not a typical party scene here on campus and the surrounding areas. However, this school does have plenty of respectable things to do.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There isn't much of a night life for students.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Since the Honor Code prohibits drinking and drugs, students don't really go to bars. There are some off-campus parties, but they usually aren't too bad. Rexburg has a lot of fun things to do, but a lot of people will go to Idaho Falls for any sort of nightlife.

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.

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.
