3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are options in Rexburg but mostly fast food and cheap options for poor college students. If you want a more formal meal or one of the more popular restaurants the nearest town is 30 minute drive and provides shopping, eating, and many other activities as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Really the only thing I don't like about it is the Foundations program... it's a way to bypass General requirements but if you plan on transferring before you graduate it's very hard to transfer those credits.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't too many options near campus and in town. Prices aren't too bad in the few places we have though. Half an hour away, in Idaho Falls, though, there are loads of options!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Let's be honest, it's an LDS school... nightlife is pretty limited, but you get what you put into it. The school has a different dance almost every night from swing to country dancing. No alcohol licenses are given to restaurants in town so no bars. You can have plenty of fun thought!

2 College Sophomore

Weather: I mean, you kind of get what you expect. It's Idaho so it is cold in the winter which usually starts in October and ends in April... Spring and Fall are pretty short. Summer is beautiful, I LOVE Rexburg in the Summer, there's a lot to do and it's beautiful country!

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are quite a few computer labs on campus, and usually you can find an open computer somewhere. Printing is nice because you can do it from one of their computers or your own, and setting it up the network is pretty easy.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is already pretty cheap, so it's harder to get aid. They do hand out academic scholarships at the beginning of the year which shaves off a thousand dollars or two. Other than that, I don't know what else there is.

College Freshman

Party Scene: You sign a waver when you come into the school that you will not drink, have sex, etc. So there aren't any bars or things like that. There are events where DJs play in abandoned schools or downtown. There is also a haunted corn maze that comes around during Halloween.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Everything must be campus approved housing. Everything is affordable, although the boys apartments are usually run down and kind of dirty.

4 College Junior

Academics: All programs at BYU-I are wonderful. I'm just beginning in my program, but so far so good.

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors here are GREAT! They really care about you as an individual. BYU-I tries to hire only the best. There are some brilliant people working here. I had one of my finals at my teacher's house with a barbecue to follow! Its a fantastic and challenging school with many great programs. Some people think it isn't that great because it seems to be the younger sibling to BYU in Provo, but thats just because there aren't as many programs, and its in a smaller town. The education quality is the same.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Most people either drive or walk. Its a small town, so everything is literally within walking distance. Roommates or friends usually give rides if need be. I think there is a bus system, but I've never actually seen anyone use it. Almost everyone uses the ride board to get to an from home during breaks.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You can find almost whatever it is you want. I would suggest being there to find an apartment or room with someone you know.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: It's a small Idaho town. With that said you're almost forced to be more open to interacting with people you don't know. I met many people just by striking up conversations with them. If you're not adventuresome or want quick and easy entertainment, you probably won't like it hear.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It can get cold, but I don't mind it. Summer is AWESOME.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good place to be. Close to the library if you need to go print something off before class.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many "college" locations near by, such as pizza shops and diners. However the nicest location near by is an Applebees, so if you're looking for a nice date you are going to have to look elsewhere.

3 College Freshman

Parking: There are many areas that finding parking is hard at different times in the day but overall it is decent.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Most students are very good at being accepting of any diversities. There are not as many diversities here but those that are here are excepted!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The parking on and off campus can be challenging but overall is really good.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There's really only stuff in the MC and it's kinda expensive and it's ok food. Freshens there in the MC is really good, but it is pretty expensive.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are lots of places to eat on campus - the Crossroads, which have multiple dining options from Grill, to Italian, to Wraps and Sandwiches, to Bakery, to Soups and Salads, to BBQ. The food there is always delicious and has something for everyone.
There are also different cafe type places on campus, and a shake/yogurt/smoothie shop called Freshens which is amazing. The University Store sells groceries and fresh made fudge. There are meal plans available where you can get good discounts on all the food places on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love this program! There are many opportunities to practice what they teach - for instance, there are different clubs for Mechanical Engineers to get together and design and build things like rockets and remote controlled cars. The workload is high, but it brings Mechanical Engineering from a concept to a reality - the facilities are large and work well for the program size, the staff are very helpful and knowledgeable, and the skills the students gain are priceless.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not yet done an internship, but they sound amazing. For Mechanical Engineering students, I hear that they pay very well, and that they get you prepared for a good job. From what I hear, the BYU-I program has a good reputation built up, so many jobs like the students, because they have integrity and a good work ethic. I think the internships are 10-12 weeks long, and the time commitment is like a full time job.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Being from out-of-state, it was difficult to make sure that the process got completed by the due date and completed the right way - I felt like sometimes I got sent from one person on the phone to another to another just to resolve one issue. Overall, the process wasn't very hard, it just required some patience.

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.
