The BYU-I learning model is the best! I've retained so much more information here than I ever did in high school. This is my first semester, so I can't fully make this statement, but you will LOVE your professors! They really want you to succeed, and they are very accommodating with their office hours, and with special circumstances. Campus Life is good, there is plenty to do. I recommend off-campus housing because there are a lot of really nice choices. The BYU-I center is absolutely gorgeous and amazing. I absolutely ADORE the student wards, your bishopric are usually teachers, so they understand what you're going through. Tuition is dirt cheap and they're really nice about giving out scholarships. Learning in a faithful environment is great, because it's genuinely hard not to feel the Spirit in the classroom.

Personally, I have never lived on campus dorms, but I have live in off-campus housing. I absolutely love it! I recommend it to all students who attend Brigham Young University-Idaho. It saves the hassle of having to buy on-campus food and you are able to learn how to do things on your own, which fulfills the university's goal of having us become good citizens in our community. The amenities to the apartments can be better, the newer apartments are having in housing laundry units (washer/dryer), which is completely convenient to us, students, who are constantly busy. One of the biggest issues is internet, there are many sub-contracted internet providers here, that make internet use a hassle. The social atmosphere, really depends on you, if you want to have a pleasant experience with others, you need to go out and do something about it. Some costs for apartments are outrageous for what you get, but if you really look, there are some great deals. The convenience is slowly progressing. The housing process is becoming better and better each semester.

I love BYU-Idaho! There's a spirit of learning at this college that is unlike most other schools. The professors really care about helping you learn rather than just memorizing the information. They are willing to help and work with students as needed. Campus is pretty easy to get around and those on campus are friendly. There are great scholarship opportunities and you truly get what you pay for. If you're looking for a wholesome college experience, I would always recommend Brigham Young University-Idaho!
