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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt scared ever on campus or unsafe, it is probably the most safe place to be! Everyone up there is super friendly, I remember my first few days on the campus and in the town of Rexburg, I would just be walking down the street and everyone would wave and smile and say hi, and I didn't even know them. The campus has a wonderful spirit and is very welcoming. People lock their doors to prevent things being stolen and to prevent some funny pranks pulled on them.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Because the campus is comprised of mostly LDS students, there's never a feeling of being uncomfortable. Sure there's a few pranks and goofy stuff going on but overall everyone is extremely respectful and very friendly and helpful !

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: BYUI is a private religious school and all of its students are held to a pretty high standard. You must also agree to these standards before being admitted here. I love that the campus is a drug and alcohol free environment. There's no pressure to go against your own morals here and I love it.

Transportation: There isn't really a public transportation system in Rexburg since it is such a small town, but since it is small everything is relatively close together and within walking distance. It's fine in the summer time, but sometimes during the winter when it is freezing cold it's not as much fun to have to walk everywhere. A lot of people do have cars there though which is nice because everyone is always willing to give a ride. The Salt Lake Express also drops and picks up right on the campus and is a great way to get rides to towns in Idaho and Utah and a great way to get to the airport. I've used the Salt Lake Express before and it was pretty nice.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the off-campus housing is really close to the campus. You could throw a rock from your window and it would hit your classroom close. Also a lot of the housing has a gorgeous view of the Rexburg Temple which is also super close to campus. I lived a Birch Plaza, it wasn't the best in terms of quality, but the location made up for it. There are also a lot of new off campus housing being built and the newer buildings are really nice. You really can't go wrong, unless you choose to live in La Jolla, which seems like a nice place, but is super far from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: While BYU-I doesn't have a Varsity athletic program that competes with other colleges, there are plenty of opportunities to be a part of a competitive or non-competitive team. BYU-I also provides a unique variety of sports teams from American football to South American futsal. Sporting events are fun to go watch and participate in.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Everyone on the Brigham Young University-Idaho campus is required to live by an Honor Code that involves refraining from drugs. Drugs are not a problem at this college.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: The students for the most are amazing and very easy to get along with. Majority, if not all are of the same faith, so the standards and believes are the same, so it is easy to get a long with each other and relate!!

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking can be difficut to find sometimes. Many people choose not to bring a car to school. Everything is so close together that walking is just fine. Housing is not far and even the closest grocery store is less than a 15 minute walk from campus. You can get parking permits for housing, comunity parking or campus parking.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: BYU-I has a large althletic center. There are a lot of courts to play basketball and volleyball or other sports. There is an indoor track which is good for those Rexburg winters. They are places all over campus besides the library to study in. Devotional every Tuesday is always a good experience. You have the chance to hear from President Clarke as well as faculty and leaders of the church.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: BYU-I is a great school for getting your generals done. They have a great nursing program. The professors are great! They love to interact with students and bring the spirit into the classroom. They are always more than willing to meet with students individually. There are always activities to do on and off campus, sometimes you might have to look hard. There are lots of outdoor activties to do. BYU-I is close to Yellowstone and Lava Hot Springs. It is a small town and small campus but it allows for a more personal experience with other students and professors.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The on-campus housing was pretty good. The cost is reasonable. They are great for freshman. There are only a couple options though. There are plenty of off-campus housing options. They are all located right around the campus so not more than a 15 minute walk.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We are held to a very High Moral Standard at BYU-I. There a BYU-I honor code that all students must keep in order to continue your learning experience there. Most students are very honorable and respectful to that honor code!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman Dorms are very reasonable and affordable. The rooms are roomy enough and access is very convenient to the classes and everything else!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Availability is definitely a challenge for most off-campus housing, and of course cost is a big concern. I do find that if you search diligently enough, you will find housing that suites not only a college students needs, but there budget as well. So, cost effective and all around convenience is available, you just have to find it by searching, asking locals, talking to realtors and browsing websites and housing magazines to find the perfect match!

5 College Sophomore

Weather: I personally love the snow, and Rexburg gets a lot of it. Occasionally, there are people who don't know how to drive in the snow and cause problems for those of us who do, but overall the weather is great. Classes are hardly ever cancelled, so you don't have to worry about making the work up later. In the summer it is warm and sunny. There are always people playing sports and having fun. It's a great environment.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many off-campus dining options at Brigham Young University - Idaho. On main street alone, there are various fast food and sit down restaurants. There is always a good selection. If you like Subway, you are in luck because there are four subways in town. I think the majority of students make their own food in their apartments though. All the restaurants are good with their prices, but none of them have any great deals for students.

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.
