4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a rather small city with a constant supply of wind. There are a few museums, but most of it is housing and stores. If someone is looking for an exciting night life, then here is not the place to find it. Most businesses close by about 10 or 11 at night. This does make it nice for those working though because you are less likely to be working really late hours for your job. Much of what we do here is from our own making and usually is quite simple. We do have dunes close by though, as well as Yellowstone. There is also fairgrounds, a camping area, and ropes course for those needing a little more excitement. On campus almost any day of the week you can find some activity going on and a good amount don't even cost. Overall, I like Rexburg I just wish there was actual mountains to look at.

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of Off-Campus dining experiences, however they are mainly fast food restaurants and I have had bad experiences with most of them. The cost is frequently inflated compared to surrounding towns. There are a few places that are unique to Rexburg; however in most cases they are similar to each other. No good Chinese places to be found yet.

Weather: It snows a lot in Rexburg and is very cold, so it can get pretty icy which makes it difficult to walk around. I don't mind that too much because I really like the cold, but it is also very windy, and I really don't like the wind.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: We do not have much diversity. We have the ocassional student from out of the country or another race, but since it is a private church school, almost everyone is the same religion---LDS. That being said, because of high standards we hold, there are no extreme political beliefs or diverse sexual orientation.

Athletics: We do not have competitive athletic teams. We have intramural teams, teams within the student body that play each other, but we do not play other schools. That being said, no one ever really goes to watch these games and meets. I have to been to 2 track meets to support a friend and only two other people were there to support. Our school spirit is also lacking.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Because Most of the students here at BYU Idaho share the same values and morals due to our religion, BYU Idaho is a very safe place to be. There are also Blue help poles and security cars roaming constantly.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Some apartments are better than others but all in all they are nice places to live.

3 College Junior

Transportation: You dont need a vehicle to get to school, all the apartments are very close. It would be convenient to have a vehicle for grocery shopping.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I received the financial aid, not as much as I hoped but enough.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Return missionaries want to get married, young women go to school to get married

Athletics: BYUI has a great selection of Rec sports where you can compete against other students in your school and have a fun time. However when it comes to competitive sports it's ok. I'm disappointed because they don't have Javelin here, but other than that, they're ok.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Unfortunately, there are parking permits for campus. There are two different sections of parking, one costs 30 dollars and the other costs around 50. If you don't have a parking permit, you can't park on campus unless you want to be towed. Although, they do allow you to park there for free after 4 and on sundays.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is plenty of diversity on our campus. Many people are from different economic and cultural backgrounds, which is great. But the best thing of all is that we all share the same beliefs.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Brigham Young University Idaho has a great selection of off campus housing, all of which are great and easy to find. The only down side is the fact that a lot of them fill up fast so you have to get one as early as possible.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You can find plenty of beautiful girls. If you're a Mormon guy, finding girls to date is as easy as checking to see if girls have wedding rings or not. There are plenty of returned missionaries for the ladies to choose from. If you're not Mormon, good luck finding a date.

Majors: I am very happy with the physics program, for the most part. You can do undergraduate research projects, they have a room for physics majors, and they try to make sure you do what you need to succeed for your future career. They require you to do a capstone project, which is good for getting into graduate school. However, I have several concerns. The school limits the number of credits to graduate, so the physics department had to tailor the program to those requirements. You ideally could take more classes than the credit limit to be able to be a good future physicist. Also, the school may not be as well known as its sister school BYU Provo.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are very fun! I love to go and watch games!

Off-Campus Housing: I always feel safe on campus, and it's always clean!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dining offers healthy options, which is great!

5 College Senior

Technology: The computers are constantly being updated and replaced as needed. At no point are there problems with slow computers unless you are in a lab whose internet went out, which almost NEVER happens. As far as lines to wait to use computers, there are so many labs that it is hard not to find one. Students get FREE windows with their student ID on their own private computers!

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is excited to be at school, and it shows. Everyone wants to be a friend, and I have never felt unsafe hanging out with strangers because there are lots of rules in the Honor Code.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are very good here. They have many options and the professors and staff are always ready to help you out if you ask.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The Labs are ok, but near test times such as finals they are a difficult place to get things done. The computers are very good and I have not had any problems other than ocational crowding.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus has good places to eat. But it is way better if you just make your own food in the house.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process at Brigham Young University-Idaho is very good. They are willing to work with you if you are willing to work with them.

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.
