4 College Sophomore

Academics: The registration process is great. Priorities are given to those who have higher amounts of credits so they can get the classes they need and graduate in a timely manner. The curriculum, for the most part, deserves an A as well. Some of the General Credit (Foundations) classes have a higher workload than they ought to have. But in any case, the professors are good at communicating and they are understanding. They don't wait until the last minute to advise about assignments or things like that. The professors are here for the students, not the paycheck.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot more girls than guys here. Everyone here has different personalities and characteristics. That is largely because hundreds and thousands of people come from all over the country, and even from different countries. The diversity here is wonderful. As a whole, everyone is very respectful of each other and works to make this experience a good one. Guys and girls are amazing.

Health & Safety: This school is one of the cleanest I've ever attended. The fact that there isn't any cigarette smoke to hinder health is also a plus. I would rate this school easily as extremely safe. There is a report that goes out every year to show how many reported fires, robberies, car jackings, and things like that there have been. This last year there were a few apartment fires (from people who leave their stoves on all day) and one robbery. That's pretty safe! I was certainly impressed. It shows how honest our fellow students are here.

Campus Quality: If you like to stay in shape they have a large gym with all the goods.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Lots of excellent teachers and facilities, a little crowded though.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: With the LDS religion as the epicenter of university life, there really is no kind of influence to drugs or drink alcohol. Of course, there's a handful of people here and there who drink, etc. but there is by no means any kind of peer pressure to do these things.

4 College Junior

Majors: I LOVE my major. The faculty really are personable and want you to have the same passion they do. They work hard to help you succeed. All the professors are very successful and really know their stuff. A lot of the professors help us get an internship and give us their insight on it. It's really helpful.

3 College Junior

Majors: There are great majors here. To get into my program was not a challenge at all. It's just something that interests me. After you declare your major you fill out all the classes you will be taking and what year you plan on taking them. It's called a graduation report. It helps you stay on top of the classes that you need to take. The most important criteria for admission is making sure that you have filled out everything correctly and really told them why you would love to be here at school. I would suggest doing some community service and having a good GPA.

4 College Junior

Majors: At first when I decided to major in Sociology I was a little worried because I originally wanted Criminology and just settled with Sociology. This was probably the best thing I could have done with my education. All the teachers are great! They really know their stuff and they really try and get to know me. I feel comfortable talking to them about homework questions, test questions, or even questions about my future career. I found that Sociology also gives me a broader choice of careers down the road compared to Criminology. I know that if I'm in a certain career path I can change it up a little and go in a different direction because of the broad choices in Sociology. This is definitely the major for me!

5 College Junior

Majors: The internships at BYUI are chosen by the students. You can pick whatever you plan on going into after you graduate and then verify that with your counselor. I am actually doing my internship right now as a Reserve Deputy through Madison County. I love it! We are preparing and learning so many things that we will be ready for when I become a Deputy and hopefully a Sheriff. As a part of this internship we go to class two nights a week and learn about the law, weapon handling, and officer specifics. I love everyone I work with and thoroughly enjoy this experience. It just makes me really excited for my future and know that I will love my job!

Off-Campus Housing: I think it is much better than on compus. You have more space, more things and lounges to have some fun with your neighbors.

4 College Freshman

Technology: They work fine, but everyone has their own anyway.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a pretty good nightlife at BYU-I, there are frequent dance parties held close by. They also have activities and things like country dancing held on campus a few nights a week.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: new exercise faciltities and state of the art. A lot of new buildings, including student center and auditorium. Many activities all the time.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: As far as diversity and acceptance, half the people have served missions throughout the world. As a result, their minds are open to people of other cultures. As far as political beliefs, most students tend to be conservative because it is a religious school. And, for sexual orientation, because it is a religious school, the teachings of the Bible are taught.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Classes are small so students know professors personally. Professors care about students and want them to succeed.

4 College Junior

Technology: As always computer labs and the library tend to get crowded and busy during finals and sometimes mid terms, but if you get to school in the mornings you can typically find an open computer. All of the computer labs have good machines and have a printing kiosk close by that you use your student id to print off pages. The price is .04 per printed page so it is cheaper than most office supply stores but still ads up if you print off books.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is very strict and has set tough guidelines for the students to follow to help keep them out of situations where they could get in to trouble, either with authorities or with God. They have room checks, opposite sex students are never allowed in dorms, they have curfews and meetings with bishoprics to help keep them on hte narrow path.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several restaurants and places to grab a bite of food around campus and within walking distance. A few of them cater to college students and have atmospheres and prices to encourage students to eat there. Most of the places to get food are tyical food joints and more or less tolerate the local college students but welcome their money. Over all the prices are average and so is the food.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: New dining center includes foods from all over the world.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: I think it is very diverse, because there are people from all races, and regions of the world here. But, there are virtually no homosexuals, and about 98% is LDS (Mormon), and the majority of students are conservative in their political opinions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: There is lots to do here in Rexburg. Yellowstone Natl. Park is just over an hour away, as well as the Grand Tetons (mountain range), Jackson Hole, and more.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It's the safest campus on earth! But, watch out for some of the young drivers. BYUI is very diverse and you get students from all over the world in large numbers, and with that different driving styles too. It's rare for an accident, but be watchful.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Well.... there is a curfew! It is always midnight except for on Fridays, then it is 1 am! yay:) haha so pretty much everything closes at midnight... including walmart, because students aren't allowed outside of their homes after midnight. but until then, it is super duper fun! There are usually lots of dances and places to go hang out. Especially when it is warmer.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It really depends on what track you are there during. In the fall track and winter track it is really really cold and sometimes snows a lot. I always had to bundle a lot to get to class so I wouldn't freeze on my way there. I visited the campus during the summer, and it was super hot, but the buildings were air conditioned. Not many people are outside when it is cold, but when the weather is warmer, everyone walks and is outside.... so much fun!

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.
