5 College Sophomore

Academics: The work load so far is not too bad. I am able to be a full time student and work two jobs while maintaing As and Bs. The curriculum is very focused because the school does not allow you to take more than a certain number of credits.

Academics: The registration process is frustrating. It is hard to compete for "freshman classes" and you may have to take classes outside of what you need the first semester.

Guys & Girls: The people are conservative in appearance and nature. The girls always wear clothing that is modest, meaning not much skin showing, but are very attractive. The Norm is to be friendly and helpful with everyone. Generally the interests are related to; the outdoors, church, and laser tag.

Scholarships: I pay for my schooling in cash. I have no experience with it. BYU-I is relatively inexpensive for the facilities and education received, even if the financial aid is not available to an individual this University is worth paying its full cost. Thats what I am doing.

Technology: There are lots of student computers on campus. The windows computers are old but reliable, there are new Macs' which are very good. There are printing stations where you can send assignments wirelessly to print. If you decide not to buy a computer you will need at least a jump drive to save and store your assignments on.

Campus Quality: The campus has building called the Manwaring Center which has a large cafeteria, plenty of seating, and often free candy. In the same building there are many study and practice rooms that have capabilities to video conference. Close to the study rooms there is a recreation area of sorts with a bowling ally, pool tables, smoothie store, and university store and gift shop. Frequently there are free comedy and musical performances in the evening here. Attached by skywalk is the David O. McKay library which has group study rooms and cozy nooks to be with friends in. Just south of these is the gardens, which have large open spaces of grass with many mature trees and structures to sit or enjoy the scenery. In addition to all this there are many sports fields, a C.O.P.E Course, and competitive inter-school tournaments. There are excellent opportunities to interact and meet many new people.

Campus Quality: BYU-I boast very good facilities. The new I-center on campus can seat at least 15,000. The I-center has three levels with a free hanging balcony modeled after the Conference center in Salt Lake City Utah, which is the largest free hanging balcony in the world. There are frequent opportunities to see very good performers at a very low cost. I was able to see Chis Allen a winner of american Idol and A group called the piano guys for only 8 dollars a piece. There is a weekly devotional where distinguished visitors address the student body in a motivating and inspiring way. I attended when the apostle Todd D. Christopherson spoke at BYU-I.

Weather: The summer, spring and fall are very mild. The winters are harsh with temperatures dipping into the -20s at times. These days are rare but there are cold snaps that the temperatures do not get above zero.

Diversity: There are lots of people that are of African, Latin and Islander descent. The school is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which sponsors international students of the church through the continuing education fund. In addition to this the school actively seeks to bring students of an international origin to the school as well as provide opportunities to study abroad. But its still mostly white mormons from the local area.

Parking: Inexpensive but the closest parking from the campus must be a least a 100 yards away.

Technology: The internet is pretty fast, and there are a lot of computers in the labs, during finals it can be hard to get one, but mostly it's not too hard, which is good. the IT department is fantastic, really a great group of folks.

3 College Junior

Parking: Compared to other schools I would say $35 dollars for one parking pass is pretty good. If you wanted them for all the areas you need to go (your apartment, campus, and city) it would cost about $80 a semester which isn't bad. Parking permits are strictly enforced here too so you can't cheat the system.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't had any issues nor do I know of anyone that has had any issues here on campus.

3 College Junior

Transportation: It's a small town, you need a friend with a car or live close to campus. I don't know of any public transportation. I car was a must for me but a lot of people get away with out having a car.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I have loved the dating scene at BYUI there really isn't much to not love. Everyone wants to find someone and they share your values... What more could you ask for? Dating is about having fun, YOLO!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Overall you get what you ask for coming to a small town campus. There are not a lot of options but for the most part I eat at home anyway. Forget about having options after ten and of course everything is closed on Sunday but you shouldn't be going out to eat on sunday anyway. There is enough variety to keep you happy. Just don't expect your favorite restaurants without having to drive to Idaho Falls.

3 College Junior

Technology: The computers are not bad on campus. I was at BYUH before and they had a much greater assortment of Macs to use. Here everything is more formed toward PC's and I'm a Mac user. Overall the computers here will get done what ever you are doing though.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Not a ton of options as far as on campus dining. Overall I would say it is adequate for most people's needs though.

3 College Junior

Local Area: If you love the outdoors this is the place to be. Yellowstone and other beautiful outdoor venues are in close proximity. The winters are cold and harsh. You definitely need to be creative to have fun here in the winter.

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.
