Majors: A lot of the majors require that the student does an internship in order to meet the graduation requirements. This is very good because it helps your resume grow and makes you more appealing to potential employers. However, BYU-I doesn't help the students find the internships. The student is really on their own when it comes to finding the internship and it can be a bit overwhelming.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There really isn't much of a drug scene unless you go looking for it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many different apartments to choose from. They are all close to campus and have reasonable rates.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The honor code. I only know a few schools who take the honor code seriously and at byu, if you don't follow the honor code you will get kicked out

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: It is a beautiful campus and everything is so close and walking distance

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Most students do not take part in it but if they do its not noticeable.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The very strict honor code provides a safe learning environment for students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Technology: there seems to always be network problems right around midterms and finals. Connectivity is usually good, but sometimes there are issues.

5 Recent Alumnus

Parking: The permits are cheap and you can park close to your classes. It is easy to find a spot! The parking officers are nice and understanding as long as you are trying to follow the rules.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: On campus housing options are limited, even freshmen will get off campus housing if possible. If there is a rooming problem its difficult to resolve and in some dorms one resident is responsible for over a hundred students. On the other hand, the accommodations are adequate offering options with kitchens and without.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Not only is the use of drugs discouraged, the campus will get the authorities involved for any drug related event they discover.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I am not an on campus student any more but I know that the crime is low. Of course, there are those who came come onto campus who are not students but when talking about BYU-I students, there is much safety. It is a very clean campus and there aren't many on campus accidents that occur. People on bikes or in parking lots are very caution and the slow pace lifestyle helps with that.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a lot of respect here that guys and girls show to each other. Everyone if friendly and interested in the good of their neighbor. Everyone dresses modestly and cares about being good Christian people. It seems that everyone has fun and enjoys the college life while maintaining the Honor Code. I would say that music is big at school and game nights!

3 College Freshman

Majors: Just as long as you work hard and use all of the past experiences you've learned from, it should be relatively simple to get in. It is also important to actually have somewhat of a natural talent for photography, however.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I am so excited to take the knowledge I've gained and put it toward my own personal business! I know that my work will improve by tenfold and my clients will be much more eager to pay for my services.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love the Photography program! I've learned a lot of technical things that are important to know and my personal work has skyrocketed. I love the teachers and other students I get to work with and I feel like we get a very edgy, modern take on current trends and methods.

Diversity: It is super LDS, but other religions are welcome!! It is definitely predominately white, and the people tend to be really ignorant of other cultures, sad to say.

2 College Senior

Weather: It is bipolar. It snows a ton! Oct-March there is definitely snow! It gets really cold. Every once and awhile it is nice! Spring Semester is AWESOME!

3 College Senior

Athletics: There are only club sports here, rec teams, ect. But, they are ton a fun, and there is room for everyone!

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a ton of anything in Rexburg, and everything is overpriced.

4 College Junior

Weather: It is mild. I hear there are harsh winters. The summers get hot. the Spring and Fall are nice, like typical cross country season weather. nothing too extreme.

5 College Junior

Academics: I like how you can do either a minor or 2 clusters. I of course am doing a minor with my major because I don't see the point of clusters if they aren't academically acknowledged as something you have proficiency in. Minors are better. Also, more major, minor, and cluster options have become available just this past Spring Semester.

5 College Junior

Academics: I love my Major classes, they teach me about basically everything I am interested in. I wish chemistry wasn't required because I am just going into training, but I understand where it fits in so I am fine with it.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I really, really, really love costa vida and kiwi loco.

5 College Junior

Administration: They keep the campus clean and secure. There are trash receptacles conveniently located all over campus and there are panic buttons for emergencies. Also there is a campus curfew so the buildings close and most student head home to sleep or do more studying. Quiet hours begin at 10 pm every day which is nice for those students who have earlier classes or doing late-night studying.

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.
