5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I have met many people from all around the world, it's so cool to meet people that are out of the country.

Athletics: My friend plays on the football team and loves it.

Scholarships: My experience with the financial aid office has been pretty good. They try their best to help however they can.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live at Northgate and absolutely love it! It's very nice however it's far from campus. I've lived in other housing closer, however it snot as nice and has less amenities.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There really isn't too much of variety around here. There are a lot of chain restaurants and fast food, no diversity really.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: I love my on campus dorms! Our manager is so sweet and kind, she does her best to get to know all of us. The dorms are comfortable to reside in, and the social atmosphere of the entire complex is friendly. I would highly recommend it to any freshman who need a cost efficient apartment.

Campus Food: There is a large variety of foods to choose from, making the dining area easy access for a quick and hearty meal if a student is running short on time.

4 College Freshman

Majors: They have a very good Engineering program. The teachers are very knowledge about the topics they teach and many of them have experience in the job field. The also have a lot of equipment for plenty of hands-on work.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Being a church school, the campus rules are of course stricter than most schools, but they make for a good environment. There is no drinking, partying or sexual misconduct. This has given the university a peaceful atmosphere were I can focus on my studies.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There the normal restaurants, but they are sort of far if you don't have a car. Most people cook their own food here anyway or eat a quick meal at the on-campus dining area.

Along with the run-of-the-mill, they also have a few unique or mom and pop restaurants.

1 College Junior

Administration: BYUI is strict. there are a lot of rules, and that's that. People are expected to follow them, in exchange for a very low tuition, it's just the way it is. A lot of people complain, I guess, about the dress code and curfew, but I don't mind it. The honor code is enforced, by pretty much everyone, students, teachers, everyone. So this is not your school if you don't like rules.

If you break the rules, you get sent to the Honor Code Office ( yeah, they have an office) and if you break enough rules, they WILL kick you out.

3 College Junior

Weather: It gets VERY cold in the winter ( -20) and very hot in the summer (102) and is very, very windy, but spring is nice, and the classrooms are kept warm/ cool depending- very insulated. It's not too much bother, so long as you have a good winter coat- they keep the sidewalks and paths clear of snow, and in the summer you can always find a sprinkler to cool off in. but the wind is a pain.

also classes are pretty much never cancelled, so if you want snow days, byui is not for you.

also occasional thunderstorms.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is pretty great. All dorms are apartment style, with bathroom, living room, kitchen, and two bedrooms. There is a lot more space than you might expect from dorms, particularly in the kitchen, it's a real kitchen not a microwave and mini fridge. 3-4 people share the apartment, and there are about 40 apartments in each of the six complexes.

as a rule, the Dorm mothers really care about the students- they remember birthdays and names and tough classes and are always willing to listen. It depends where you live, I've only lived in Barnes Hall ( women's housing) but we always did fun activities like cupcake decorating, weekly movie nights, dorm prayer with treats on sundays... It was like having this huge family. everyone knew everyone, at least by face if not by name.

Barnes Hall IS farthest from campus, at the top of the hill, so you might want to try for Kerr or Perkins if you are female ( Chapman if you are a boy, I've heard they have nicer carpets :) )

It's pretty simple to buy the contract, you can do it all online, and it's not too expensive, under $1000 a semester. So that's nice. Also there is laundry and free semester to semester storage if you are staying in the complex.

Athletics: Well, that's the thing, there ARE no varsity sports. BUT we do have teams that play against each other, and everyone has lots of fun. It's pretty open, and the coaches are other students, so it's all student run. We have a great stadium, indoor and outdoor tracks... we've got no big teams, but we don't need them, we have fun as is. The teams do well, and the school supports them- there are always volley ball or soccer games to go to, or basketball or softball. It's just loads of fun to watch, everyone is doing it because they really love it, not for money or scholarships or expectations.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I haven't participated much in any sports, but I know that they don't participate competitively and seem to be more recreational. I haven't heard anything bad about it.

5 College Junior

Administration: We are very strict about the Honor & Dress Code here, and with most rules. It is a private, church-owned university and there are high expectations. Everyone signs the honor code before they are admitted to the school with the expectation that those rules will be followed. If they aren't, you could face serious consequences, like probation or suspension. Drinking and drugs are not tolerated at all. Certain clothing isn't allowed to be worn on campus. But despite the strictness of these rules, they definitely create an environment that encourages learning and socializing without compromising our standards or subjecting us to bad things. Because of the Honor Code, everyone is held to a high standard and most people act responsibly and are very trustworthy.

Majors: As a business major, we are required to have at least 2 internships before we graduate. Many other majors also require an internship or they are recommended. I haven't had one yet, but I just found a campus job that leads to an internship the next semester. It's nice that the school offers many internships as their own employees, but they also work with you to find outside internships. We are encouraged to gain as much real-world experience as possible so we are more prepared and capable of finding good employment opportunities after we graduate. The school can even help students find jobs after graduation in some cases.

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm in the business program. It is designed well and we even get hands-on experience with running a business with the IBC program. Students create their own small businesses and run them during the semester, completely in charge of finances and funding, staffing their booths on campus, advertising, etc. The program is very good and successful, probably in part because our University President, Kim B. Clark, was Dean of the Business College at Harvard before he came here.

Local Area: Rexburg is a very nice, quiet place. There are plenty of things to do, but there is also a calm environment. Idaho Falls is not too far away and has more things to do.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: It can be a little pricey. There is no longer a big cafeteria and that is hard at times.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There is a good spirit here and most people are very friendly. There are no big parties, but I think it helps students able to study harder.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus can be limited. The parking passes are sold very quickly, and sell out of fast. I believe the permits cost around $50. And the permits are are permits of certain parts of campus. If you pick lot A you can only park in that lot, etc

Academics: I love the academics here, the teachers are there to teach and help you. The school does all they can to prepare you to be in the real world. They provide many opportunities for you to grow, and they are their to guide you along the way.

Transportation: There isn't a big need for transportation in Rexburg, if you need a ride you can usually find someone close to you with a car. If that won't work the school has a reasonably priced car rental service.

Parking: The town is small enough that I can walk to campus from almost anywhere but when I do need to drive the free parking lot usually will have spots. In the winter time parking is terrible because everyone wants to drive to school then.

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.
