4 College Freshman

Academics: I have been very satisfied from the academics so far here at school.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug safety at BYU-Idaho is Excellent! At BYU-Idaho we have a very religious college that prides its self in having a zero tolerance for such behavior as drug use.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: a wide range of guys and girls from all over the U.S and around the world.

5 College Student

Academics: BYU-Idaho has challenged me more than I could have even imagined. The teachers are great, and having three full semesters in a year can really help you graduate sooner.

5 College Student

Academics: I've learned things at a quicker than ever before!

5 College Student

Weather: Really cold in the winter, but you get used to it!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are a lot of fun outdoor activities and on campus activities. However to get to most places on your own you have to have a car and there is no public transportation like buses or anything.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There seem to be students who come from many different backgrounds (high income, middle class, low income). Many are from the Western half of the U.S. There are small number of foreign students: asian, african, pacific-islander, hispanic. The majority are white. I have not noticed problems though.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It is pretty good. You automatically recieve scholarships if you have a high GPA which is great. Most of the other scholarships seem like they are for local students. Why should someone get a scholarship just because they grew up in that state? There's probably a good reason; I just don't know what it is though.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers are so nice! I am an elementary education major and I have to say that I greatly enjoy being in this program. The instructors are competent and the work load is manageable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The school is awesome! The professors are always willing to stay after and answer questions and you never feel like your stupid when they do. The registration process is a little complicated, but the easiest one I've ever seen. There are all kinds of special study options from internships to study abroad programs.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is mild until you hit winter then it snows a great deal and gets really cold. Other than those few months, it's pleasant and wonderful.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Receiving financial aid is an easy process. The people who work at the office are all very intelligent and kind people. More often than not you will find out if you are receiving any financial aid from the school several weeks before your assigned semester starts.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing I found was close to everything that it needed to be close to. The managers are the sweetest ladies I have ever met and they make sure that all the students in the housing complex have everything they need and care for our well-being. It's a little older and some appliances are finicky, which is why it doesn't get an A+, but overall it is a great place to live.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I had no problem at all getting into my major, physics. I chose my major when I accepted, and I wasn't given any trouble. Physics is a small program here.

4 College Junior

Majors: There are lots of majors to choose from and very friendly people to help you decide.

Technology: Suprisingly there are plenty of mac computers available

4 College Student

Campus Quality: The architecture of the campus is amazing! The scenery is lovely and clean.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: There a good facilities, loads to get involved with and opportunities to do things in the surrounding area.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am an English major and the work load is what I would expect, the classes are very practicle and help to prepare you for future employment and life. It also does a good job of targetting what exactly your emphasis is in.

5 College Junior

Majors: It is pretty easy to declare a major, it is even easy if you want to change it--which I did, three times, they do require that once you declare a major you write out a plan of what you plan on doing for the next following years. Which I think is nice because it helps you keep on top of things.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a curfew in affect for all students and faculty. And the campus is in a small town called Rexburg. There are only fast food places, grocery stores, and a Walmart in the area. There isn't much of a nightlife at all.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most everyone has high moral values which is refreshing at times. But due to the religious environment you do come across many extremists. A lot of students can come across stuck up, close minded, and judgmental. But since a lot of students come from across the world you get a good variety. Everyone is very interested in dating so the social scene is very active.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You have a good range of housing pricing depending on what you can afford. The pricing for many places are very high compared to what they should be. But since you are required to live in "approved housing" you have no other choice and the apartment complex owners definitely milk that for all it is worth. The social scene is very active though. There is always something going on and it is a very safe atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love my school! The professors are always helping me and you can tell they truly care about you succeeding!

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.
