5 College Senior

Drug Safety: The school and housing for the school have a zero tolerance policy for drugs and alcohol. There is a pretty much automatic suspension from the school if caught.

2 College Senior

Weather: Rexburg is a Winter City, which is great if you love snowboarding and skiing. you can do both most of the year here. It is uncomfortably cold for about 9 months. Lots of snow, Strong bitter winds. You'll really want proper clothing, because it can be extreme if you're not prepared for it.

However, the summers this places' redeeming point. The summers are BLISS. Absolute perfection for the ENTIRE summer, while the rest of the world swelters in heat.

Really dry climate, which can be tough on your skin.

1 College Senior

Administration: This school is super regulated to the 'T' with the rules and regulations set out by "the Honor code." Things like drinking and drug use will get you kicked out on the first offense. This is not the school for you if that's what you're looking for. If you dress inappropriately the school will deny you services. Bike down a hill to fast and you'll get stopped. VERY strict. But, it's all stuff you read and agree to before hand, so it's not like it's a jar of surprises.

Local Area: Rexburg is a really small town; you have to understand that (most things take travel). There are perks to being in a small town though. It's an incredibly safe and peaceful place. It might be a kill joy for people who want a massively huge party scene for college life (though I'm sure you could find that, you'd just have to look some), but is great for those who just want to focus on academics.
During the winter there is plenty of skiing and snowboarding, snow shoeing, and other activities. However, this place is at it's prime during the summer. There is so much to do, and the Outdoor Rec Center has a ton of equipment to help you take advantage of the out door opportunities (lakes to swim in/paddel board, rivers to canoe/float, parks, hiking, rapelling). there are waterfalls to see, caves to explore, plenty of hiking, rafting, sand dunes to have bonfires at... The university will also host things like horse back riding expeditions and stuff. Idaho Falls is about 30 mins away and has better shopping then Rexburg has, as well as more restaurants, theaters, etc.

Its a great place, but is somewhat limited. You just have to get creative! Again, a perk is that small towns have *a lot* of freedom to get creative and do whatever you want. :)

3 College Senior

Campus Food: The Crossroads has great options - definitely has something for whatever you might be craving that day and has a little bit of everything, Southern BBQ, Chinese that is just as good as Panda Express, Tacos.... Tasty, good quality food, and a lot of different choices to match varying budgets. Lots of grab and go food, which is perfect to buy and eat on the way to your next class - as well as warm sunday-meal type entrees when you want something more home-cooked feeling. there are also a lot of healthy food options for meals and snacks (salad, hummus snack-pack type thing, plenty of fresh fruit), which I really appreciate.
The school also does a really great job of having cafe's and eateries in most buildings on campus - which allows you to get your studying done with out having to leave the building your studying in to get food.
I eat on campus frequently. While pricing could be more competitive, they really do an incredible A+ job of having convenient food convenient so you can always remain focused on your studies.
Time and food are investments in your studies and future, and BYU-I does a great job showing that they realize that.

Party Scene: They have bowling, movies for free every Friday at the library. There is a theater in walking distance, with pool tables. Many stores with in walking distance. They offer activities and dances for a dollar or less practically everyday. However, everything closes at 11-12. p.m. In the city.

3 College Senior

Technology: There are tons of computers/computer labs. Practically everywhere has wireless access. However, you do have to pay 20 cents for each paper printed (which adds up, so bringing your own printer is actually cheaper in the long run). And the network crashes not all time, but frequently. Therefore, they have any average rating for computers/computer accessibility.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is tons of athletic activities. However, BYU Idaho is not huge on varsity sports. We have BYU Provo for that. Our school in specific try's to escape as much as it can from worldliness.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs are not allowed of any on campus and results in explosion. I Was on campus for a year, and never saw anyone do drugs. However, I did see people breaking some other rules. So, there probable is at least one person sneaking, and breaking the rules. That's why I did not give them a perfect rating, because people are not perfect so there is always going to be someone breaking a rule.

4 College Senior

Academics: I love the Nursing Program! We have had chances to practice in the lab, read in many different texts, and also practice in diverse healthcare facilities. The instructors are willing to work with students and really care if they succeed! They do need help with organization.

5 College Senior

Academics: I was lucky to earn outstanding grades which allowed me into the Nursing Program. This is a great program, very competitive, and very rewarding! They offer many different educational experiences and work with many healthcare facilities from Blackfoot to St. Anthony which allow students hands-on practice.

5 College Senior

Diversity: The environment of BYU-I is so focused on learning, bettering the individual, and growing spiritually. The professors really care about their students and the university offers many different financial resources which allow students to succeed. The only difficulty is the weather which is typical Idaho weather full of ups and downs, but nothing you can't handle!

3 College Freshman

Weather: The wind, is flat out horrible especially in late fall/winter when its almost constant. The winters i've heard can get pretty cold, but recently they have been mild in comparison. If you live far away from campus I would say a car would be nice, especially if you are there winter semester. Early fall and spring can get pretty warm. The sunsets are BEAUTIFUL, and almost every night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYUi is great, the school has a lot to offer in academics considering how small it is. The teachers are wonderful, always prepared, and helpful. Its located in Rexburg, which is kind of in the middle of nowhere but if you have good friends you can easily have fun while your there. All of the students and school faculty are kind. The campus is very safe, and walking around at night doesn't worry me too much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are old and could use some maintenance work. Although the students that live there are super fun and nice and there are great wards.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a variety of options and price ranges. the managers are great and friendly, there is not much to improve.

4 College Freshman

Technology: there are generally always a computer open and have fast and reliable internet service.

4 College Senior

Academics: There are tons of majors and minors to choose from at BYUI and all professors that I have had are friendly, funny, and very helpful, they WANT you to succeed!

4 College Senior

Academics: I love my major! Many of the psychology professors have P.h.D.'s and are very helpful and knowledgeable. The workload is a lot but you learn so much! There are also many internship opportunities for Psychology in Rexburg and Idaho Falls. The psychology department is in the Ricks building and it is one of the nicest and newest buildings on campus! Psychology gets to do research and experiments in upper level classes, it's great!

1 College Senior

Athletics: We do not have a competitive football team anymore. We do have recreation sports and competitive sports but they are within BYUI only and we do not play any other schools.

3 College Senior

Administration: The strictness is definitely there. No boys in girls rooms and vice versa. This can definitely affect your social life!

3 College Senior

Weather: It snows so much, ice covers walkways and people fall every single day. However from June-October the weather is beautiful!

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: There isn't a lot of peer pressure to do drugs or drink. Students who usually participate in these activities are reported by friends or roommates. Most students don't do drugs.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is always activities going on that you can participate in.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: They have a ton of options on campus at the crossroads (cafeteria), the Snow Cafe, and even an international candy shop. They have pizza, asian food, sub shop, salad bar, pasta, a bakery, and a burger shop. I think that the food there is great and eat there once in a while. You can get a meal plan if you don't want to grocery shop. recently though, there was some health scare where a couple people got sick from a certain dish they were serving.

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.
