3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are things to do in Rexburg, but most students go to Idaho Falls for more shopping choices and things like that.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many students from many parts of the country and the world. It's easy to become friends with these people because they're so interesting and unique.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Because of the high moral standards and honor code, drugs and alcohol are not big issues at all!

Campus Food: I don't eat on campus much, but what I have eaten is pretty good. The quesadillas are the best!

3 College Junior

Academics: The early childhood special education program is great. The teachers are very friendly and helpful and there is not a whole lot of work load.

3 College Junior

Technology: Pretty good, fun fast and there are quite a few labs you can go to on campus.

College Junior

Party Scene: There is not much of a night life at this school. You have to be in at 12 every night.

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking sucks. You have to apply to get parking permits and if you don't have one then you get tickets and or boots on your car if you park on campus between 7 and 4. A car is kind of necessary though.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I was looking into Architecture my freshman year. They had a great program, and awesome faculty! Really kind and helpful and their ACMS was pretty competitive at their competitions.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's close to campus, many great options, reasonably priced and very safe!

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No drugs, or at least I don't know of any. Besides being against the law, it's also against the school 'Honor Code' because of the LDS Word of Wisdom prohibiting things that are allegedly harmful to your body such as alcohol, tea, coffee, tobacco and drugs.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's a mormon school so there are no parties with alcohol, no clubs or bars.
People are very social, and there's always get-togethers of some sort. In some apartment complexes people will often dances or dance parties in their lounges. (where everyone is at least two inches from the next person)

5 College Junior

Majors: There are tons of majors and lots of help to get you through it. Good school for how much it costs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Not amazing. Most of it is run by students or previous students. Still good for what you get depending on where you go.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a great variety of different housing places up here, and they are all generally close! They are all usually available, but the popular places go fast! Most landlords are usually great, and the cost is good compared to other colleges. Parking where I live is free and no one gets a boot, but other places don't have as much parking so it costs and visitors can't park there. They are all really safe and the school website has a great search tool for BYUI approved housing!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a lot of fun! Especially in the spring/summer! There are plenty of places to go see movies, go out to dinner and a few different grocery stores. There aren't too many places to go shopping for clothes and such, you have to drive about a half an hour to Idaho falls for stuff like that! There are drive in movies, the sand dunes, bridge jumping, several parks, yellowstone, bear world, lots of places to get ice cream, and so much more! Rexburg is awesome!!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am in the process of trying to receive financial aid, and it wasn't very hard to apply. You only have to apply once for scholarships and it applies you for all of them, so that is really nice!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Overall, it's a pretty safe environment. Everything is decently close so it's convenient. However, coming from DC to Rexburg, it's a very boring place. There's a lot of outdoor things to do, if you have time between classes. But aside from that it feels like it's in the middle in nowhere.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: I'm only aware of one housing complex that provides transportation. "The Ivy" has a shuttle bus that periodically takes students to campus and the grocery store. However, it's only for residents. Every other housing has to find their own way around.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking passes don't cost much, but there are two big issues you run into. One, spots fill up fast! You can be caught driving around for almost ten minutes trying to find a spot, only to have to park pretty far from your classes. Your best bet is getting to campus about 30 min before class starts. The second problem you run into is that the parking is split into sections. You may get a parking pass in a section near the majority of your classes, but you'll always have one or two classes that are in a completely different section. You'll find yourself wishing you had a pass for that section, too. But you are only allowed to buy a pass for one section. I think the best solution would be to have one parking pass that covers all of campus. It would solve a lot of problems.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was not satisfied at all! They force people to go to church and religious classes, and think that it's okay. If you do one thing wrong, out the door you go. College is supposed to be a fun atmosphere, and this was so very disappointing. Too stiff and uptight.

Transportation: We do not have campus transportation, but it doesn't really matter. Most apartments are only a few blocks away. However if you do decide to drive to campus (which a lot of married students have to) be careful. Parking is few and far between. I would suggest getting a city permit and a campus permit. But good news is that they are pretty cheap, about 20-30 dollars. We do not have public transportation either, but again it is a small enough town you really don't need it. Long-distance traveling you have a two options, Salt Lake Express or Sam's shuttle. They mainly drive from Rexburg to Salt Lake, but there are a few stops in between.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have varsity sports, rather we have intramural. It is due to the large cost of professional teams, but it works for our campus. Because intramurals are our only sports, it allows more students to get active and be on a team!

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The main cafeteria is a great place to hang out and meet people. There is a large variety in food, but it can get pricey. There are other smaller food stands spread out around campus which is nice, as it gives options.

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.
