3 College Junior

Diversity: The majority of students are LDS so they have the same beliefs, values, and goals. When it comes to different ethnic and racial diversity, it is very diverse. There are students from all over the world.

2 College Junior

Administration: Sometimes the campus police go a little overboard. I understand that the campus has rules but if they are going to point out every little thing wrong, than it just gets a bit much. They are very strict about dress code. If a guy has not shaved in a day, they will send him home. If a girl has pants to tight, they will tell her to go change.

4 College Junior

Technology: I have never had any problems with BYUI's computers, labs, or reliability. There are plenty of labs and computers that students have access to. I think the only problem might be that they turn off their internet during devotional (every Tuesday at 2pm).

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: The college that I attend is LDS majority. Students live by the honor code which states that drinking, drugs, and other things are not tolerated. When a student is caught drinking or using drugs, he or she is dismissed from school and is not allowed back.

2 College Junior

Weather: The weather here is pretty miserable. It snows here a lot and when it's not snowing the wind is awful. Sometimes its hard to walk to class in these conditions especially when classes never cancel even if it is twenty below. In the summer, however, it is a very lovely place.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Its too bad that we do not have any sort of sport system at my school. The school does not support any sort of team or sport. Students will, however, try to get to together and play on their own.

1 College Junior

Transportation: There are not transportation options at my school. Since the town is so small, students are expected to walk.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Students are from all over the world. Most students are LDS with the same beliefs. However, there are a few of other faiths with different beliefs.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There really aren't any sorority's or fraternity's. All students are seen and treated as equal.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is safe, clean, and cheap. However there are strict rules and things to go by that are more enforced on campus than off. However, every student agrees to follow these rules when they agree to go to the school.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There really is no night life at this school. You make your own fun. No drinking, drugs, etc.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The dining off campus is your average fast food places with only a few restaurants. The only thing open past midnight is McDonald's and a cheap Mexican restaurant.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The only public transportation available is a shuttle bus to and from Utah to Idaho. I think this is offered because many students are from there, and that is the nearest large airport.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is the way to go. Living on campus is not the way to go. Housing is just as cheap off campus and nicer.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Many students are involved in sports, however there are only intramural sports. There is no varsity or any other sports with this school. No competing with other schools.

4 College Senior

Local Area: The atmosphere is great and friendly. Everyone is usually smiling and willing to lend a helping hand. However, besides the campus life there isn't much around to do anything else.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus is good but not great. It is a decent price, however, there aren't usually a lot of spots by the buildings you'd want.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The experience overall has been awesome. The school is a wonderful, safe and very religious place where all feel welcomed, loved, and treated like they are capable of achieving all. However, the city is small, and there isn't much around.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful. There are old and new buildings with art exhibits, theater/music performances, an accommodating library, bowling, swimming, and other sports and extra curricular activities on campus.

4 College Senior

Academics: Professors are very friendly and are open to working with students needs. The classes are fairly small. If extra help is needed tutors are available.

3 College Senior

Academics: It is difficult to be a Music major at any school and this one is no exception. There is a lot of hard work. The hours are like a full time job or more with practicing, etc.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Financial aid is fairly easily accessible. If you have questions they are usually available online, and are very friendly and accommodating.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Campus dining is good and at a decent price. There are many different kinds of foods, italian, salads, asian, american bbq, etc. It's about mid-end restaurant quality one could say. Not available after certain hours and everything in town except for a few places are closed by midnight.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There are security guards, cameras, etc. However, most of the students avoid partying and rough play. They are aware that they will get kicked out if things happen and they are caught. Off campus is pretty safe as well since it's a very small relatively religious community. However, some shady stuff still happens, as does everywhere. Very safe campus compared to most.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The boys and girls from my school were mostly white. We had some diversity but not enough for me. Many of the girls and boys I met were from Utah or the other parts of the western states. Most everyone was religious and had to live by out honor code. Everyone dressed modestly and I felt comfortable talking to random people, tons of people were outgoing and friendly.

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.
