4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Since this is an LDS school, drugs and alcohol are not allowed on this campus. There have been a few instances when students have been caught with drugs and they are sent home immediately. We have a fairly strict Honor Code at BYU-Idaho that doesn't allow much fooling around. It's such a relief not to deal with the drug and alcohol scene as much as other schools. It feels safe here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is really good. There is a wide variety of choices that you can eat from. The prices are good and is easily available for everyone. The dining hall in the MC building is great and huge!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Everyone is extremely friendly. The campus is clean and is a great environment where I like to be. There is always something to do whether on campus or around Rexburg. There isn't much shopping to do in Rexburg but Idaho Falls is near by and there are many places to go there.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are some restaurants to go to but there isn't much variety

5 College Student

Health & Safety: There is always a safety and security agent around and emergency stations placed around campus. I feel 100% safe here.

4 College Student

Local Area: Rexburg is an adorable little small town. And almost everything is within walking distance of the BYU-I campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Rexburg has great housing. All of the apt complexes are pretty new and taken care of by the previous residents.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't very many options for eating out and the restaurants all close pretty early. Everything in Rexburg closes early.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: As an LDS college there is no problem with drugs on campus. Although there is a slight problem off campus, however at any college and highschool you will get this problem to some degree.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Then parking on the BYU-I campus is a horrendous mess. Permits are sold at a reasonable price but are then oversold. This makes it impossible to find a spot if you get to campus latter than 7 am.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Great facilities for students all of which are free. State of the art athletic and fitness facilities along with an incredible library.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The schools intramurals and competitive sports programs allow everyone to play and participate in basically anything which they want. It allows them to become a better more rounded person.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love the campus in Rexburg. There are a few big grass sections that are perfect for those days you want to study outside. The Hart Athletic Building is very well furnished with excersize equiptment. They have a lot of clean fun activities you can participate in, like dances, weekly classic movie night in the crossroads, and things like that.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everybody at BYU-Idaho is extremely nice. Sometimes, it's even scary! The guys are for the most part very kind and respectful. The type of guys range from the very smart studious nerdy type to the jock type. There are a lot of country boys and girls, because it IS Idaho.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: BYU-I is EXTREMELY safe. The city of Rexburg in general rarely has crimes. I read a report for last year that showed how minimal crimes actually happen in the town, and seriously, it's practically zero. I am NEVER worried walking alone on campus, in fact I would say I feel safer on campus than even walking around the town.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Because this is a church school, a lot of the student body comes from similar backgrounds. I did meet a few people from other ethnicities and from out of the country. My neighboor was from India. Overall, there isn't a LOT of diversity, but you can still meet people of different types.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: There are actually seasons here. While this may have others shaking their heads, it makes me happy to be in a place where I can learn how to adapt to different climates and things. I learn more about being a human being.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My first semester at BYU-I I lived in the dorms. They were alright. Perfect for walking to classes, the cost was a little over $900, and the rooms are decent sizes. However the social aspect was not that good. My second semester I moved into one of the apartment complexes and I loved them! The social atmosphere was great and they are not very far from campus. I definitely suggest living at the Ivy or the Willows for girls. Boys, I would say Navoo housing is the best. Cost for apartments is between $1,000-$1400.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are many guidelines that we must follow at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Very strict dress codes, Family Home Evening attendance, and many other policies that we have to live by there. I personally hate how strict they are, especially with curfew and the dress codes. I want to be able to make those decisions on my own like an adult should. They almost make me feel like I'm back in high school. However, the policies really do help the students create a great atmosphere there. I can see why they have them, I just wish it wasn't as strict as it is now.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Brigham Young University-Idaho is really an exceptional college to attend too. For the small campus that it is, they sure do offer many different kinds of minors and majors for the students. I haven't had any horrible teachers. They all seem to grade very reasonably and they really have a passion for what they are teaching. The work load might be over-whelming to some students, but I guess that just depends on how much time you're willing to put into your studies. It's very easy to find a tutor and its free. The atmosphere of the campus is really relaxing and it's just perfect for focusing on your college education.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: Winter lasts FOREVER! Sometimes it snows as early as October and is known to last until April. The summers are nice though.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Lots of parking, parking passes are cheap, however it is highly enforced and many people get tickets!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of fast-food chains, and not very many nice sit-down restaurants. However, many of the places here do offer student discounts! Most are pretty close to campus, and even if they are not, they are still within a decent walking distance.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: This is a mostly LDS community. For those of the LDS faith the entertainment is just fine. But if you are looking for the night life, party scene, then this school is not for you.

3 College Senior

Athletics: All the sports are great and tons of fun to participate in! It's easy to become involved with ward sports and on-campus activities! The only unfortunate thing is there are no good competitions, not as much advertising for games as there could be.

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.
