3 College Student

Athletics: Our school doesn't do any competitive sports, it's all just recreation sports. However, it's strongly encouraged and easily available to anyone who wants to give it a try so that is awesome.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: This school is just a safe environment. It has a friendly feel to it, everyone is kind to one another and has respect for their peers. The faculty is nothing but helpful and encouraging. The campus provides plenty of help for your studies and resources to help you succeed. It's an incredible school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like how the school is very spiritual and everyone is always willing to help you with whatever you need. There was an experience were I had to talk to the financial aid office quite a few times and everytime they tried their best to come up with the best solution.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: BYU is infamous for it's stance on sexual assault. It treats victims like criminals and they always try to down play when it happens. I have heard on several occasions of them sweeping it under the rug and telling the victim to keep quiet.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed all of my professors and all of my courses. They have been extremely informative and the professors are always willing to help. The only thing I dislike about classes is that you are forced to pray for every single class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know that there are many different companies who look at this school in particular, just because this school has extremely high standards and expectations of its students and businesses like that.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not really a big fan of sports, but the people in this town would die for their team.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are things I really do love about going to this school. However, there are things I really hate as well. The professors are astounding teachers (at least the ones I have). The classes are interesting and enjoyable and I actually feel like I am learning the material. This is a private school run by the LDS church, and because of this, tuition is extraordinarily cheap. The majority of people in this school are LDS, this itself is not a bad thing if you are LDS as well. However, if you are not a part of the LDS church, I highly recommend you find another school. The culture here is one of obedience. If people find out that you are a "non-member" you are ostracized. If you haven't done everything by-the-book according to their book, they look at you as a second class citizen and treat you as such. Like i said, I love parts of this school, but those parts do not include the people.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've had a lot of excellent professors and classes which have influenced and opened my mind to other cultures and faiths.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I think it could be improved at least for the music and theatre programs.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: We have security guards on duty in the evenings and call boxes for emergencies.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The dorms are ok, kinda tight quarters, but you make it work.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life at my university. This question doesn't apply to me.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I've learned a lot and grown as a person here at my university.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We don't have competitive sports which is disappointing.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Although we may not drink or do drugs, we do have parties. Maybe not every night because we are hard working, but the parties here are fun and awesome!

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Although almost every single student here is LDS, there is a very diversified population with different races, opinions, ideas, political beliefs, country origins, and so much more!

5 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers really care about you here and try their best to get to know you. The workload can be a bit overbearing because we have shorter semesters, but there are a lot of tutors and there is an amazing tutoring center to help you out.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Our school has high standards and it's helps with the environment and atmosphere so much. You can feel the happy, but also hardworking feeling all around.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports here are decent because sports are not the main focus of the students here. Most students come to BYU-I to get an education, and sports are more of a leisure time activity. The school does provide most equipment and facilities for students to play and practice most sports students are interested in. Students barely pay attention to any sports events around campus and there is no official teams on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had a good set of teachers. I had some minor problems with certain classes, but overall things went pretty well. All teachers I've had so far are good about working with you too, and you feel like they really care about your success. There is a good variety and the class sizes don't get too big.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are some good career fairs. There are a lot of career preparation resources, like mock interviews and a career research center and classes to help you prepare. The networking is great. There is a good list of internship opportunities and it is easy to find them.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety begins with the people, and pretty much everybody on campus has a good set of values, so things are pretty generally safe and secure left alone. On top of that, there are redundancies in order to make sure people are safe and secure.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's a place to eat and sleep that doesn't gross me out. That's what's important to me. Sometimes they go a little crazy with clean checks (I feel like they're constantly trying to get at my deposit). I don't know about other places, but a lot of the otherwise perks of living here are broken (ping-pong table, pool table, foosball table).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school provides some great options for learning, the teachers really care about your success, and there is an awesome atmosphere that really is conducive to learning and having a great college experience.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

BYU-Idaho professors and other students take a lot of interest in students personally, to help them achieve their academic goals and improve their overall well-being. They care about how you do in classes, what you have to contribute to the school, and what you're doing besides school to enhance your lifelong learning. The BYU-I experience really becomes what the students make it. Students who just study to get by learn to do the bare minimum with the least amount of effort, and students who want to make the most of their education and learn and grow from being a student work longer and harder in a variety of pursuits that span beyond academics.

It may be hard to believe that there are so many opportunities to develop skills in a given area from attending a little school in Rexburg, Idaho. But just as BYU-Idaho takes huge steps in innovating learning and maximizing resources, students learn to be innovative hard-workers who know how to problem-solve and communicate effectively. Most students who realize the potential they have in being admitted to this school and who take advantage of the opportunities offered here quickly learn how to make their BYU-Idaho experience worthwhile.
