3 College Student

Local Area: It is a small town holding a large amount of people. It seems like a lot more stuff happens outside of town as far as shopping and decent restaurants. As a student basis, however, we make the best out of it and that is why we all love it here!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Aside from what is going on on campus, there isn't a whole lot going on.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There aren't many things to do that are considered a nightlife.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: There are tons of other civil engineers but there aren't so many that you don't get to know anybody

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are by far the best, and the class sizes are small enough so the teachers can provide you the help you need.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is pretty windy and that's really the only downside.

4 College Freshman

Technology: It's pretty average. You really do need your own computer to get classes done. because most of them are hybrid.

Administration: We live by the Honor Code so there are curfews and girls and boys can't go in each other's bedrooms. People are usually respectful when it comes to noise and such.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of small businesses to keep things interesting. But you also have your normal McDonalds, Dominos and Taco Bell, etc. The small business restaurants and food trucks are the best.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: It's a church school so just about everyone is LDS. there are many people however from all over the world. We don't have ratios to meet here, basically everyone is given a shot and accepted.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It goes how it should. If you know what you're doing then you're fine. If you need help, the financial aid office does it's job in helping you.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful. Students make up most of the landscaping workforce (yes you get paid if you get the job). People just don't litter in this town for it to be dirty. There are plenty of places for students to hang out. the library is huge, we have a tutoring center as well to aid students and provide jobs for other students.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The teachers are very knowledgeable and very very helpful and caring of the students. They are here to help you succeed. There are study rooms set aside in apartment complexes for students and there are lounges for fun time. the curriculum for the classes I'm currently in are coherent. The workload depends on your major. It's about average.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There is no public transportation for students unless your housing provides it. There is what they call "we-cars" which are very cheap and practical to rent when you need it for those who don't have their own car. It's a small town so aside from the weather being a factor, you can walk or bike everywhere.

3 College Freshman

Weather: We get a lot of snow in the winter and it gets cold. It's Idaho, what do you expect?

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a college town with very supportive residents. Everyone in the community is very involved in the school with trying to help students and make life easy and fun.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There really aren't people here to steal stuff or harass you. We come here to be around others who have the same morals and values. Of course there are the exceptions who are just the church school because mommy and daddy made them, but the rest of us are respectful of ourselves and each other. It is one of the safest schools to be at. People are very trustworthy.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are no drugs or alcohol allowed. We sign an agreement to the Honor Code before we even get accepted that we will not participate in such "social activities".

5 College Freshman

Majors: My program is the best! The ecology department is great. The professor who wrote the integrated major made it very broad so that you could still specialize in something else if you decide to change your emphasis. He is also very helpful of students, especially transfers because he helps you get more classes you've taken in the past substituted for other classes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a lot of campus housing available to students. It's not typically hard to find a place to live. It is a bit crowded with it being 6 people to an apartment but that's really the only downside.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We actually don't have varsity sports where we play against other schools. But the students are very involved in intramural sports and it's very supported by the school and students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options of places to go for a quick bite or first date. Not many places, if any, provide student discounts. The Hickory is one of our favorites. We often go for their smoked brisket sandwich and fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The atmosphere that the students and staff create is why BYUI is an amazing school. I would never choose to attend anywhere else. It is amazing to know that all of the students who I am surrounded with share my religion and therefore my standards. I am able to connect with them easier than I ever did at the community college I attended for my dual credit program in High School.

2 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know of many sporting activities, although I do know that they happen regularly. They aren't heavily advertised. There is a large football field for field sports and a huge gym for basketball, track etc.

2 College Junior

Transportation: There is a community board online to help students who have cars provide transportation for those who don't. Often students will provide their services for low rates. However, because Rexburg is so accessible, there is hardly a need for transportation unless it is long-distance.

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.
