Health & Safety: Our campus is completely safe. People leave stuff laying around when they go to the bathroom or something and it is almost never stolen. There are many security measures to protect students and they are taught a lot about safety.

Overall Experience: The school offers a very wide variety of courses. The courses are well taught and you can tell that the professors are passionate about the subject they teach. Class sizes are pretty small, which helps tons with actually learning the material. Most professors really take the time to help you individually if you ask for it.

The school provides tons of opportunities to seek employment after graduation and is always willing to provide more help.

Health & Safety: It's a very safe place since every person who applies agrees to adhere to the Honor Code. With the Honor Code, it prevents any such unsafe circumstances from occurring.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love attending school here; I've been enjoying it. There is enough for anyone to enjoy their experience. Also, the reason why I wasn't quite sure on how to answer the LGBT questions is due to there not being many of those types of people there, if at all.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are plenty of options to live on campus and off campus. Either way, it has to be approved by the school and there's a lot of variety.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't a big focus at my school. This is due to the school covering a variety of aspects and wanting everyone to participate in something they like. They know that not everyone is into athletics, so they do their best to cater to everyone so that everyone can enjoy recreational activities at the school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love my school. The teachers use a teaching model that allows the students to grow and apply the knowledge that they gain within the school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: i love all my professors

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: the little blue safety places are good i just forgot what they are called

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: going to sports activities is mostly to support friends

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the spirit of ricks is always present!

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It's as quality as the education at BYU Provo, just at a smaller campus. There isn't much of a sense of competition, and the teachers are generally pretty good. I haven't met a bad one yet. Teachers know their stuff. The library is helpful, and there is a specific math lab for students who need help with their homework. Tutoring is free unless you skip a scheduled session. Workload is easy as long as you have good time management.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: I've never seen so many white people in one area. I'm mixed race; my mom is Asian and my dad is white. I'm from a very diverse area, so going to BYUI was a bit of a shock. First week of the semester, one of my roommates made an Asian joke. I had a white roommate that would use the n-word on occasion. There are associations for the many different ethnic groups, which is nice, but there is still a lot of intolerance and close-mindedness. Not to say that everyone on campus is openly racist, there are just small pockets of people who do it. Because of the LDS presence, there is virtually nothing about LGBT community anywhere. Students who identify as part of the LGBT community have an unspoken "don't ask don't tell" policy. I have never met an openly gay student on campus. I think no one has spoken out about it in fear of intolerance.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The most I hear about drugs is a few people getting arrested for having drugs. They're practically nonexistent. I wouldn't be surprised if there was drugs, however. I don't hang out with people who use them. But I know they exist somewhere.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't have a lot to complain about. It's a good school. I've learned a lot already, and I'm only a rising sophomore. Classes are taught by good teachers that are generally easy to get along with, and classes themselves aren't too difficult if you know how to manage time and study. The LDS environment is pretty nice, but it takes time to get used to. The campus is in a cute little town with not too many attractions, but it has a very unique charm to it. The climate isn't too great, but it's good to remember that you're there for a quality and fairly inexpensive education. There are many campus activities that can appeal to anyone. The dating scene is intense for those who immerse themselves in it. The overall feel is pretty chill, I don't know how it compares to more secular colleges. I've enjoyed my time here, and I intend to graduate from this school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't quite started looking for a job after graduation, but I believe I can find one as long as I can network easily. There are many opportunities for students to learn new skills, in and out of class settings.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I'm not super outgoing, but I have heard of students who have used drugs. Thanks to the BYUI Honor Code, there is virtually no alcohol, tobacco, or any other drugs. I can feel generally safe walking around campus, and I can usually depend on lost items being turned into the Lost and Found. It's pretty safe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Centre Square apartments are not on campus, but they are pretty nice. They are a fair distance from campus, which I was not a fan of. But the amenities are really good. A washer and drier in the apartment is pretty nice. Since the building is so new, everything is in generally good condition.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are no varsity sports, which I know some students are not happy about. I don't really care about sports, but what I do see has a lot of people excited.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: One of my roommates was on the security team. He told me a bit about the security on campus and I am sure that from what I heard it is vary high quality.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Brigham Young University Idaho has a new kind of environment that was at first a bit of a shock to me, but it soon became very comforting. I've never lived in an area with so many other LDS people my age, and I can feel a very big difference, just by seeing how people dress and act. I've never had a class that could so easily intertwine religious teachings with modern scientific facts. Students are generally very polite, but that doesn't mean students can be close minded and rude. Class sizes are generally small, allowing for more personalized teacher help. Compared to BYU in Provo, the campus is tiny. But it's still a decent-sized school. It's perfect for those who aren't ready for a big school. I wouldn't attend solely for the weather. Overall, it's a very nice school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is extremely helpful in helping us find careers. even doing practice job interviews.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I never lived on the actual school owned housing but I have been there and it is vary nice.

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.
