4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many good looking guys and girls at the school. Have the dress code ensures that people dont look like bums on campus and most girls get pretty dressed up daily and so do the men. Its nice to see some classy attire instead of just sweats everyday

Diversity: so many races and beliefs that all fit in at the school

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our school is special in the fact that it is a church run school with high standards. You are expected to do your best in school as well as look and act your best. This adds a certain level of comfort to the campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is very strict with their rules. They expect you to be dressed well and looking your best. By doing so, everyone is looking their best and it helps keep the spirit on campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very secure and safe. There isn't much to worry about there. You know that everyone is following the honor code and security is in place should anything happen.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Applying and admissions was easy. Getting the endorsments was probably the hardest part only because I was so busy. I didn't really have time to meet with the stake president. The essays have to be less than 200 words and there are only two. I thought it was great because I found out I got accepted two days after i sent in my application and i found out my track two weeks later

Weather: In the summer it is great. Its warm during the day but it cools off at night. Fall and spring are good too. You have to be prepared for the winters though. It can start to snow as soon as october and the snow will stick around until the spring. You will want warm boots and a parka, especially if you aren't bringing a car.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There is a lot of variety in the classes you can take. Obviously there are required classes for all students and for your major but there are also classes that are just fun like skiing, snowboarding, and lots of different dance classes.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It is AMAZING!! There is such a good atmosphere all around the campus itself that is great. It was what first attracted me to the school, and I still love it. The town is rather small and very much mostly students, but it's great and the residents are very kind to the students.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: So many things for all students to do! Dances and Latin nights, bowling, concerts, comedy night, and so much more!! There is always something fun going on.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The whole purpose of the school is to create an environment that is based off of exceptional behavior from the students. It's not just that the school doesn't allow drinking and such, it's that the students don't want to do that. If this seems backwards to you.....it's probably not the right school for you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The places to live are clean and well-maintained. Calling from a couple states away in order to organize my apartment was really easy. The people I dealt with were really friendly and patient with me.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most places were fast food. Not really a good place to take a date. Most places like Wendy's, Arby's, McDonalds, ETC. Not the best experiences either as I have eaten there.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here at rexburg, idaho is crazy. On moment it could be sunny and warm and an hour later it could be overcast super windy and rain or snow is often weekly. It gets cold here but it is manageable with the proper clothing

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Brigham Young Idaho there are a lot of exercise physiology majors which makes it difficult when registering for classes because so many people need those classes. But the internships are good and it gives for many job opportunities after college, workload is average for a college class and its unique because so many different directions can be taken with this major.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here at BYU-Idaho are very helpful, they allow you to come to them during their office hours to chat or with any questions you have, they are here for us. The curriculum is tough but it is strong we are able to learn the material with lots of class discussions to help us out and help us teach other students who may not understand and remember it and the registration process is simple and the class choices are enormous for most classes. Workload is said by many teachers to every hour of class is about an hour to two hours of homework which is personally not that bad, they give you enough time to finish and are understand in situations like internet issues or systems are down. Study options, BYU-I has a free tutoring center for all classes with students who excel in that area, it is in the Library where most students get free internet access and help if it is needed.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Because of the honor code everyone is clean cut, shaven and well kept. Students come from all over the United States and their are many international students as well. The number between girls and guys is pretty equal.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is good but not great. The apartments are high in price considering the location and what you get. Most are well taken care of and the management for the most part is cooperative and helpful.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs and Alcohol is not permitted for students at anytime, away or on campus. As part of the school honor code all students agree upon enrollment to not participate with or use drugs or alcohol of any kind.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Mostly like any other dorm, but a little cleaner. There are also off-campus housing options for all students to choose from.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Plenty of school spirit and great attendance at games. It's not the major focus of the school, but there are some really creative sports you can do like real life Battleship in the pool or a school wide dodge ball tournament.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was awarded a scholarship but my student account must have had some issue because I was only notified through my new email account for the school and so I didn't find out until months later and almost lost it by not accepting it in time!

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Some people have a hard time attending this school because it's so strict. When you apply, you sign an honor code to stay abstinent, keep the word of wisdom, and dress appropriately. Because it's such strict guidelines people often have a hard time following them. But if you signed it, you gotta follow it. It's not too terrible.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's really depends on where you live. I live at the bottom of the campus, right down the street from the grocery story and across the street from campus. I absolutely love the location, my landlords are so kind and come over even in the dead of night when we have emergencies, it's pretty cheep and the community is wonderful. The higher up you go on campus, the worse the community is- but that's just what I've heard. I've never actually lived up there.

Athletics: There are no sports teams here at BYU-I; only Intramural sports. There's sports like Ultimate Frisbee, Racquetball, Basketball, Football, Swimming, Cross-country, and so on of which you can get a group of your friend's together, form a team, and compete with others. There is allows competitive sports too, where coaches watch, and recruit you to be on their team, etc. There's not much fan support or school spirit though. Roommates and friends are usually the biggest fans. But we have racquetball/wally-ball courts, basketball courts, a swimming pool, wrestling rooms, dance rooms, indoor track court, a gym, etc. all in the Hart Building open for students to use or reserve

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.
