3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a ton of fast food places around campus. There are also some sit down restaurants and a ton of local restaurants! I would go to the local ones! They generally have really good food, a lot of variety, and are really cool!

3 College Senior

Diversity: We have students from all around the world. This is an excellent school and people want to come. Although the school is in Idaho so a lot of the students are of the Mormon religion and quite a few are from Idaho and Utah. We are a religion based school so most of our student body is part of the Mormon religion. But we welcome everybody who wants to come! I feel like the students are fairly accepting and very friendly. We also have an honor code system that we agree to follow when we apply to the school and that keeps people a little more focused on their education.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: The night life isn't your typical college scene. There are no bars close that I know of and if there are you probably won't meet a lot of people. But there is a lot to do instead. The campus usually hosts a dance at the end of the week and those are awesome! Also people are always going to the sand dunes that are not far away. The apartments always have parties going on and there is a lot of good clean fun.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I usually feel very safe on campus. I have had a few night classes that were far from my apartment and I never had any scary experiences. I have also never heard of scary experiences from others. There are a lot of police men in the area and around the school so if you stay in open places you're probably fine. Also they have these security polls set up around campus so that you can call security if you feel even slightly uneasy.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the guys and girls are LDS and live the standards set out by the church. The guys are clean cut, shaved, and for the most part good-looking. The girls are cute, modestly dressed, and nice.

4 College Junior

Majors: it wasn't hard as soon as i made the decision of what i wanted to be it was easy to switch my major over and continue taking classes.

4 College Junior

Academics: there are many options for majors and then within those majors there are minors to choose from so a good variety there. then we have great connection to get people internships and all the teachers have had hands on experience of some sort so it's great to get a first hand accounts of real life situations

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Most everyone can get a scholarship if they need one to pay for school. I've had scholarships and loans through the school and both were easy to get.

5 College Junior

Diversity: We have students from all over the world! it's a great experience getting to know them. We are a Religion based school but we accept anyone who might want to come! We welcome everyone and i think that is something amazing about this school.

4 College Junior

Academics: We have great professors all of them have or are working on their master degrees they are all kind and willing to do all they can to provide the best learning environment for the students.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial office does the best they can but everything is a slow process.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Mostly every student is drug and alcohol free. No peer pressure there.

4 College Junior

Parking: There seems to be a lot of parking but I don't drive, so I am not an expert in that area.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We have sports but they are not international. Also, we are not supportive of our teams; I hardly know what's going on and I bet no one knows our school colors or mascot (Vikings?)

3 College Sophomore

Weather: If you love the snow, this is the place, almost half the year it is cold enough to snow. The cold isn't to bad though, because all the apartments that are available are easily within walking distance, but it would still be wise to learn to drive on ice.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Even though Rexburg is an incredibly small town nearly everything here has been tailored for college students. Nearly everyplace has some sort of school discount, group discount, or some other way to save money. Also, because the school knows there is only a limited number of things to do they host tons of activities every night to keep students active.

3 College Senior

Weather: The only draw back are the winters, which can get pretty harsh. Unfortunately, those winters last about half of the year here, so if you get a bad winter it lasts forever.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The ratio is 4 girls to every one guy. This is for the singles. However, lately, they're evening off. We get students from deep south Texas to Eskimo Alaska to places unpronounceable that are found in the middle of the African desert. Most are very nice and very friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. It's easy to make friends, with the campus being so small, but the students' hearts are huge.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: A bit of paperwork. I was always trying to find one thing or another that I forgot to turn in. Sometimes the hoops you have to jump through are about 20 feet off the ground. They make it possible to do--maybe by giving you a step ladder--but it's not easy, not to mention dangerous in the figurative sense. If you have an issue with financial aid, I suggest going early in the morning, right when it opens. Lines get VERY long around noon and don't start tapering of until about 4:00.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: We get weather of every shape and size, but no matter what, it's always windy. Winters get cold, and when it snows sometimes they have to cancel classes, at least the morning ones. The campus is kind of on a hill, so it can get pretty hard to walk uphill, against the wind, on an icy sidewalk, to get to class. But once the weather gets nice, it's beautiful.

Health & Safety: BYU-Idaho is one of the safest places I've ever been. There are almost no thefts or crimes to be heard of. Every so often there is a prank, but it's mostly between friends of campus, and it's never done maliciously.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Most students at BYU-Idaho have computers of their own, but there are computers available everywhere. There are lots of areas in the library, and the network is pretty fast for so many people on it all the time. Printing on campus isn't that bad either. I have my own printer because I live off campus, and it can be a bit of a hike to print or scan all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: At BYU-I, there really is virtually no drug scene. I mean, if you go looking for it, really looking for it, I'm sure you could find some. But drugs, smoking and drinking are pretty much nonexistent.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There are no competitive sports offered at BYU-I, if you want to compete in something then this is not the school for you. They do offer collegiate sports and they are extremely fun—for example a large group of friends could make a dodgeball team and compete in tournament—but you never compete with other schools, only other students and their teams.

2 College Senior

Transportation: There is only one bus line that comes up to campus and its mainly used to transport students to the surrounding cities or the airport. There are no real transportation options to get around town, you either walk or hope your roommate of a friend has a car. Walking is fine in the spring and fall, but winter is a nightmare because it's so cold and there's snow everywhere.

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.
