4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The campus is very well taken care of and there are many things to do. There is always something going on from sporting events to concerts. There is a huge gym for working out and the new I-center has 12 full size basketball courts.

Drug Safety: Although it is pretty much impossible to eliminate all drug instances on at school, BYU-Idaho does a great job of keeping the numbers very, very low. The lowest of and school I have seen.

Health & Safety: There is not a lot of crime here. They have security, but I never hear of anything happening that there would need to be security for.

Local Area: It is friendly and safe however there are limited activities available because it is a small town.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is good, but slightly over-priced for the quality.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: To park on campus you have to have a permit for each of the lots. If you park in a lot that you dont have a permit for you can be booted or fined. This isnt a problem since the campus is really close to most of the housing opportunites and you dont have to walk very far to get to your classes but during the winter because it is so cold most people want to drive and the parking lot is filled quickly so there arent many spots to park.

Campus Quality: My school is primarily dominated by LDS mmebers and it is wonderful to be able to be around people with the same standards and beliefs as I have. I teachers are also members so we are able to discuss the gospel in our classes and each is started with a prayer. I love the spirit of the area, and the friendliness. I havent been able to find that anywhere else.

Majors: I love the program that I am in. The difference between mine and other classes is that others have a lot of worksheets and homwork projects that get turned in for a grade so you can still end up with a decent grade if you dont do well on the tests. with mine, there is little to no homework so you prove you know the material through lab and tests. I like it because it means that less slackers make it through the systme because to do well you have to be self motivated.

Majors: I love being in the biological feild. Science fascinates me and i believe the teachers here are all knowledgable about their subjects and care about the students. Because marine biology is such a competative feild I do worry about finding a job because there are not all the many open and only the best of the best get taken.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The process of gettting into my major was easy the only difficulty comes with making sure you know all the material because each class builds on the next.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I dont know if I will have an internship yet. I would love to have one somewhere more topical studying the benthos or other feild expereince for marine biology but I havent had any training positions as of current.

Off-Campus Housing: My wife and I live off campus and we are very satisfied with the off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There is no real need for a car as there is plenty of housing near the campus. Their rules on parking near campus are strict and finding a spot that is free near campus is possible but difficult.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We did away with competitive sports several years ago because we focus more on studies and the Spirit of Ricks. There is a fairly good program for intramural sports, directed, coached, and participated in by students. Unfortunately not many people attend the games, maybe the players roommates but that's about it. Mostly people just play to stay active and in shape and to have fun.

Diversity: Because this is a private LDS church university, the majority of students and professors are LDS. That being said, most people are very accepting when they do meet a student who isn't of their faith. Everyone is here to learn and enjoy this time of life together. As small as the school is, it is expanding and has lots of online programs for people in other countries, specifically Africa and South America. And there are plenty of international students on campus as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a sociology major and this school has a really good program for my major. The workload can be overwhelming sometimes but It helps me learn more.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Some of the buildings are old since this college has been here for a long time. But most of them have been remolded or are new and make the campus look so much better. I love the work out space especially.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus housing options for males and females. I believe are really nice from what I have seen from the inside. You should do your research before committing to a housing option because some may be the same price or close in prices but can have better benefits than the other.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They have pizza, bread bowls, salad bar and etc. The main stations have a type of food they serve but they are switch it up so we don't have to eat the same thing over and over again.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My school helps educates us to help us prepare for our careers and stay spiritually active as well.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: This school is very strict not just academically but with dress code as well.

Campus Food: The Crossroads provide a nice variety of foods. There is Mexican, pizza, pasta, salad, sub sandwiches, hamburgers, and much more! The Crossroads is located in the center of campus which is perfect if you need to grab something on your way to your next class.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of guys and girls that attend this school because everyone comes from different places. The social life is amazing, there is always something to do on campus whether it is visiting the planetarium or going to a concert. There is never a dull moment.

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.
