3 College Senior

Diversity: There are people from all over the world and country that attend BYU-I. Most everyone is of the same religion, but not all. Those that are not of the same religion are welcomed with opened arms. Although there are not many people that are not Mormon on this campus, there is an outstanding amount of ethnic diversity.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a huge variety in off-campus apartments. They all have different price ranges and locations. One word of advice is to sign a contract with a good apartment before it becomes too full. BYU-Idaho has a link to "approved housing" so that you can look at the different apartments that are offered and what's included with every one.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Rexburg is very strange. It is cold all the time and very windy, even though it's southern Idaho. It snows early in the year and can last for a very long time (it has snowed in July before). Make sure to bring warm clothing if you choose to come to this college.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of places to eat in Rexburg, Idaho. You have your usual fast food, but there are also lots of restaurants, some of which are family owned. The food is very good, but they are sometimes kind of pricey.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: BYU-Idaho has a building for almost every major. The library is also a great place to go to get tutoring, work in study groups, and do your homework. There is also a huge gym for those who wish to work out. There is also a building that has a small grocery store if you don't have time to go to the store in Rexburg.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are many things to do at BYU-Idaho. They constantly have dances, movie nights, and events for people to go to. The events aren't as big as other universities, but they're still fun to go to with friends.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have never been to a school that I have enjoyed more than BYU-Idaho. The professors are the nicest people and they know what they're talking about. They're very helpful and take their job seriously. There are many subjects to study and it's easy to organize your schedule. The workload can be light or heavy, depending on what kind of classes you take and how many.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: They have a great program for finding scholarships to get your typical student through. But since there is little available work in town any extended funds needed are hard to come by.

4 College Junior

Majors: When I first started in 2007 the program was rough. But I left and came back. Now it runs amazingly.

5 College Junior

Majors: The professors teach us. Since they all have a Doctorates or comparable degrees, the lectures are fantastic and the work is where most of the learning is done. The respectful atmosphere helps to drive the learning process and greatly enhance the experience. I have had no bad classes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's a church school, so they really want you to follow the dress code and standards of the church.

Majors: I am not to happy about the choice I made to become an art major (I will hopefully be changing my major). My career goals were to be a professional photographer but have changed to something along the lines of event planning. I definitely worry about finding a job in the photography field which is one reason of changing majors.

Majors: The process of getting into the Art program can be somewhat difficult. Everyone starts as an integrated arts major and then has to apply for specific art majors. To do this you must submit your portfolio. This will then determine if you are able to become an art major in a specific subject. You may not be able to get in if your portfolios aren't good enough. The most important criteria is a creative, personal portfolio.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Each year, I petition for Independent Student status. This is a rather frustrating and long process. I ususally do not recieve my financial assistance until after the semester classes has begun. That being said, the finacial aid office and counsilors do give you information and are more than willing to help, depsite this set back.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: As a private Mormon school, many of the students you come across are Mormons. However, you do come across mormons from counties such as South Africa, Canada, and many more. A large handful are conservative Mormons, but we all come from various economic status, ethnic background, and lifestyles. The school believes in acceptence in diversity .

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are various places on campus with an emergency phone. Being a smalltown, there are many cops within close reach whenever needed. With a campus curfew, I feel very safe at this institution.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are a lot of fun places to eat. There's free-cheap activities and movie theaters too.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and even walking home .

5 College Junior

Majors: I haven't had my internship but I know the school does its part to help the student find one.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: I don't have time to worry about the girls here on campus when I have a husband at home and a baby to take care of.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The one thing that separates BYUI from any other college is that every one is united in purpose the teachers and students work together to accomplish their goal.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love everything about BYU Idaho , very good environment and the teachers really do care about you succeeding and wanting you to achieve your goals.

3 Recent Alumnus

Parking: There is hardly any parking spots on campus. However, the tickets are only $20 for a parking violation. If you try to park on campus you have to wake up super early to get a spot.

1 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We don't have any sports teams we just have inter murals. People that play on the teams that compete with fellow students get way to into it. I just think "ok, you aren't on ESPN and you won't get a trophy if you win, your team is not up to par, so just calm down it really isn't a big deal."

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Quality: The school is being remodeled in sections. The newer buildings are great. Very functional and appealing to the eye. For example the crossroads which is the cafeteria got updated about 4 years ago and it is a great student hang out place.

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.
