4 College Senior

Campus Housing: In 1976 the Teton Dam upstream from Rexburg failed and destroyed much of Rexburg. For this reason you can count on all the housing being newer than 1976. No getting stuck in a junker your grandparents lived in when they were at school. And since the school has quadrupled in size in the past decade you have an even better chance of getting nice new housing at a reasonable price. All the housing must meet a criteria met by the school's housing office, which means nothing too junky is allowed to be approved. Everything is right by campus and 3 blocks away is far so don't be fooled by websites of complexes claiming to be only 3 blocks away.

Technology: There are a lot of computer labs on campus, however the internet access is very slow and not overly reliable. My computer cannot always connect to the network. Printing on campus is good. Every building has a printing area, and it's wireless printing, so once your connected to the network you can print from anywhere.

Majors: I am an early childhood/ special ed major and I really like this program. The only frustration I've experience with this university is how much and often they have changed major requirements. However, all the changes have been to improve the program and help better prepare students to be teachers by giving them more opportunities to teach in schools before graduating. If I could do it all over I would have decided on my major faster, but other than that I've loved my experience here at this school. Right now i plan on graduating in the next year and getting a job either in Utah or Idaho. because I am a special ed major and the school does provide such good training I am not overly concerned about finding a job in my field of study.

Transportation: Brigham Young University- Idaho is located in a small town and does not have a lot of public transportation and gas prices tend to be a bit higher than surrounding areas. However, the campus and town are small enough that you can easily walk to anyplace in town without much of a problem. If you want long-distance transportation, there is a small airport near by, the salt lake shuttle bus (which is very expensive), or you can post a note on an on-line "ride board" that let's you see people who are looking to carpool to a certain area.

Campus Quality: This university spends a lot of money to provide the students that attend the university the best possible resources. The library is kind of small, but it's on-line resources are excellent and there is help available both on line and in the library. The athletic centers are constantly being updated and expanded and provide good health and wellness resources for students, faculty, and to the community. The campus also has a strong tradition of helping students meet new people and providing plenty of social activities in multiple different interest areas.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I love my school and the faculty that work at the school because Brigham Young University- Idaho is a religious affiliated school and we are able to discuss our religious views openly without having to worry about someone attacking our religious views. It also allows students the unique opportunity to study and apply their religious beliefs to all aspects of their lives.

4 College Student

Transportation: Everything on Campus is a walking distance. The town is really close so you are also able to walk to the store in about 15 min or so. They have buses running all the time and most of the places here to eat deliver.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: The housing here is great! I live in the freshman dorms at Edna Ricks. Its nice and has a good kitchen and lots of storage. You do however, have to share it with 3 other roommates, and there are clean checks every week.

3 College Student

Diversity: Most of the people that go to this school are from the United States, there are not very many people from out of the country here. Everyone mainly comes from either Idaho its self or the states surrounding Idaho.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: BYU-Idaho has a scholarship program but already prides itself on being one of the cheapest tuitions in the country due to tithing contributions from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their members. Scholarships awarded will usually help pay for books. However, students that strive toward a GPA of 3.8-4 can expect half/full tuitions from the school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYU-I prides itself on being clean and visual appealing. All of the buildings are beautiful and light up at night, providing a particularly beautiful walk in the later hours. The I-Center on campus seats 15,000 and has beautiful architecture as well as state of the art equipment for broadcasting purposes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our school has a unique schedule that divides the entire year (September through July) into three sections instead of just the normal school year (September-May) into two sections. This allows more students to apply and be accepted. It also allows the tuition for students to be lower. Lastly, this unique set up allows for small class sizes year round and more available classes. This truly meets the needs of everyone on campus, teachers and students alike!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg, Idaho is small but offers everything. People dress with respect for themselves and everyone who attends this school is eager to make the most of their future, which encourages the student body as a whole to do well in all they work towards: school, sports, and socially related. We joke that you can make a new friend everyday on campus!

4 College Student

Athletics: There are not any sports that involve playing other schools but the intermurals are great! You can get involved in so many ways and there are different levels depending on skill levels. It is a great way to meet people. The gyms are top notch and open all day. There is still cheer teams and dance teams at the competitive games which are fun to watch. Everyone loves to get involved!

4 College Student

Majors: It is very active. I am going into Special Education and it is a great program. I am able to get involved with kids at surrounding schools. The teachers are great. Classes are busy but fun and not too hard. We are able to join an education society that allows us to get experience in elementary schools. It is a lot of busy work and studying but worth it

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options to stay at if the dorms are not for you! If you have a car the IVY is the place to be! It is super nice and affordable. If your walking, the Carriage House is pretty nice and right across from the gym. The Willows is girls housing for girls who have to walk or have a car. It is close to campus and the grocery store. Plus its super nice and affordable. Most housing is pretty cheap. Make sure to live on the side of campus closest to the Hart Building. Its the social side!

4 College Student

Campus Food: I like the food on and around campus. Don't expect every fast food place from back home though. This is a little town. I think the food on campus has pretty good variety and it actually pretty tasty. The food around campus is pretty cheap and very good. I love eating out at Shake Out or Sammy's! Great shakes and burgers!

4 College Student

Weather: BYU-I is located in Rexburg Idaho. It is going to be cold. That is something we have to prepare for. The weather can get pretty brutal. It gets icy and snow doesn't melt very fast because of the freezing temperatures. The wind can get pretty bad. But Spring is great and everyone is outdoors. I don't think the weather affects my experience because there is plenty to do all over campus and if it is to cold to walk to class, building hop so you are always warm

4 College Student

Health & Safety: Security is pretty standard. Living in the apartments it is typically up to the student to make sure they are safe. Locking doors is a smart idea just because there are valuables in each room. Campus is smaller and for the most part everyone is living the honor code so it is a safe place. Each night there are security cars driving around campus to make sure nothing is happening late at night. It is a very safe environment

4 College Junior

Majors: I think that the English major here is very well organized and created to for the student's interest. There are more than 1 templates to make sure that you get all of your classes for you major finished, and you can have a lot of choice. The teachers are great and understanding, so you are able to accomplish your class work without much difficulty. There are some concerns about finding a job for an English major, but not that many. I would like to be a journalist, but I can do so many things with English and therefore all I really need is to do well and know where to look.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking is a fairly reasonable price, and there are normally available parking spots. However, those who do not have a permit who park there are usually discovered and booted with a $60 fine extremely fast. Depending on how often the parking enforcers are out, you could be booted within 10 minutes.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The apartments in Rexburg are pretty cheap, especially compared to other Universities. There are a lot of apartments close to campus, however it is a little bit difficult to find one if you are a girl. You need to plan ahead about 2 months in advance or more if you want to guarantee a spot. Most of them are really well kept and also furnished though which is nice.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The BYUI has an honor code where you have to be honest, modest, moral, drug and alcohol free, professional, clean, and help others live up to their commitments.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is pretty easy to get. I received a scholarship I didn't even apply for.

5 College Student

Parking: I can always find parking and its very reasonably priced.

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.
