3 College Senior

Scholarships: I've had issues in the past with the financial aid office informing me that my forms are complete and ready when they were not. I had to go back and try to figure things out multiple times. Usually things go quite smoothly though.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's not hard to find decent, reasonably priced off-campus housing. There are many clean, close-to-campus housing options to choose from. Most have great amenities that make college living more simple.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: The party scene is practical for an LDS school. There are no drugs or alcohol, so things stay safe generally.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is not much variety, but there are some great places. I enjoy the sandwich shops and food buses.

4 College Senior

Administration: Administration is wonderful. They are practical in rule enforcement.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Chick-fil-a is the only place I enjoy eating on campus. Most campus food isn't worth what it cost, but is alright.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've had great and terrible experiences in off-campus housing. Most of the bad experiences had to do with the apartment manager. I have loved The Willows and The Gates, they have been wonderful in all ways. The Ivy was awful because of management strange, out of control roommates, and is very anti-social. I have also lived in Alldredge House which has been alright, not very social.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, it's great. Most people live off-campus so the environment is cool. Some managers are cool but some are lame.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's no alcohol, there's hardly any drugs. The parties are lame most of the time. It's NOT a party school, so don't try and have fun here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The town is tiny, so it's not the best food-wise. They're always really crowded and expensive.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's basically the strictest school. The honor code is highly enforced. But you can get away with it if you have cool roommates.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They are horrible at financial aid, and their scholarship system is really lame and biased. Basically, you're never going to get a scholarship through the school because they can't afford it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: They have a lot of options in the Crossroads, and there is always something that is pretty good to eat. It's pretty expensive, but I think it's like that at most colleges.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They are building new dorms which is really nice, but the living situation at BYU-I is kind of ridiculous. It's kind of a monopoly, and it's really expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty expensive and certain complexes you are going to want a car to get anywhere but for the most part it is worth it to get out of the freshmen hub that is the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are some nice fun parties but they cost to get in even though nothing is offered except music most of the time. No one really parties in apartments because it's to easy to get in trouble.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Just fast food places that close before midnight. The grocery stores are the best places to get any food but no one wants to go every night for a quick fix.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Very helpful people who try to do all they can although the rules are extremely strict in all aspects.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am having a hard time getting aid even though I am having to pay for all my college expenses.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I didn't eat there often because it was very pricey.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms were rather old but everything was very close to where we were at. The atmosphere was great however the rules were to strict and scared a lot of the residents. The dorms were more affordable then any of the other housing options although I wouldn't live there past the first year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is good, I like how it isn't all fast food and there are healthy selections.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love where I live, its close and convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I don't eat out too much unless its Subway, but to be honest the other places aren't that great. Fast food is fast food, but the restaurants aren't that impressive. Except for the new Fongs, that place is good and the Mexican place before the railroad tracks close to Walmart.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Clearly there will be a lot more stricter rules here its an LDS university, but its the way we are suppose to be living our lives so it is understandable.

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.
