Weather: The weather here can either be gorgeous or brutal, depending on the time of year. I love it from late-April to November. The summers are great. However, if you're here for winter (late november to march) good luck. It can be SOOO cold as you walk between classes in the wind and cold. It can be done though. I feel it is a tribute to the school that so many students come here and graduate despite the adverse weather. There is something amazing that keeps us here... that make it all worth it.

Majors: I love all my classes. There were a few that were hard to stick with at the time, but I know the things I learned are useful and I already am applying so much of what I learn. The Child Development major has amazing teachers and I learn so much-- they are passionate about and experienced in their subjects. I love that the church and gospel are tied into nearly every class.

Transportation: For the most part everything is in walking distance, married housing is a little bit farther away than single housing so sometimes you need a car. But food and gas prices are cheap in Rexburg and Idaho Falls is only a few minutes away if you need something from the mall.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Although the school is mostly made up of students from the LDS religion there are others who are not affiliated with the Mormon church. There are also a lot of students from other countries because tuition is very inexpensive and the professors are great.

Weather: The weather at BYU-I is bipolar! One minute it's sunny, the next it's raining. Overall it is windy and cold but the summers can get pretty hot.

Drug Safety: As part of the honor code we are to "abstain from alcoholic beverages". Overall there is a drug free school policy.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: This grade is entirely excluding the fact that we do not have sports teams to compete with other universities. This fact may seem disappointing to many and a low letter grade may have resulted, but after much deliberation I conclude that the existing athletics here at BYU-I deserve much praise and ravings.

The program is very dynamic and productive on a multitude of levels. The first being that it is student led and operated, allowing for interested business or recreational management majors to experience the development and organization of programs, exercise health majors the opportunity to coach and be involved in their chosen field and interest early on, and the chances for unconventional events or sports to take root at a mere suggestion and collaboration to create something new.

The second reason for supporting our sports program involves the athletes themselves. With a wider variety of sports divided into competitive and noncompetitive sports, everyone can find what they are looking for. Want to play without too much time commitment and/or hate practices? Join the noncompetitive who play in once a week at varying skill levels. Want to feel the intensity of the game by playing competitively and sharpening your skills through weekly practices and games on the weekends? Try out for one of many teams drafted together to form a league. Its an all around good system for all students looking to play while still having time for life and school.

Guys & Girls: While out grocery shopping, we come to recognize many brands, qualities, flavors, and styles of food that exist most everywhere else. We do, however, appreciate an underlying regional theme by means of local specialties and favorites, seasonal decorations, and mannerisms typical to the are you live in. That's much how we see college really; a wide variety of individuals who can more or less fit into our typical social categories and "clicks" while still sensing a unique vibe and trend.

The students here are very outgoing and friendly for starters. One need only initiate a greeting with a smile to begin a warm conversation. This also feeds a growing and true stereotype of the guys and girls being somewhat crazy for dating and courtship. Such is understood by the LDS community at large, and with the population being overwhelmingly mormon, we would expect nothing less.

A last point of uniqueness is again attributed to faith being the common denominator. We thrive off principles and values that we hold dear to our hearts with only few exceptions really. From this basis, we develop a common trust and openness towards one another as we all strive to attain that which we aspire: the best.

Parking: Parking on campus rankings are somewhat subjective. A majority of students find themselves without a car, and its safe to say that a majority of students with a car do not actually need one to get to class. Convenience is an understandable plus side of saving time to and from school, but hardly could it be classified as necessity for most students.

However, in the busiest time of the day (between the hours of perhaps 10am till 2 pm) we find that open parking spots are an endangered species. The only alternative ends up being open lots at the extreme ends of campus then making driving to school somewhat counterproductive.

4 College Senior

Majors: I chose a quick major (University Studies) to avoid forced internships as well as additional classes (that would translate to additional semesters). The internships are beneficial, but don't let someone tell you that you cannot go to school (especially online) at the same time. Go higher up and ask around, if you are told that "this cannot be done" for often that isn't the case. Chances are if you may do a type of internship/if a policy exists at another school, it will apply here.

4 College Senior

Majors: Read my review for the first question (the overall grade).

4 College Senior

Academics: This would have been an A+ had I started as a Freshman this semester. I will graduate next semester and the University is unveiling new programs each semester.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never felt threatened in anyway on or even near campus. I feel very safe and secure. If there is campus crime it is very little, and no special security measures are needed to be taken. Just the usual, lock you car and lock your apartment. Of course you should always be concerned for yourself, and be smart about how late you are out and with whom.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I give it an A+ because it is my type of night life. It is all good, clean fun all the time. There are free dance classes almost every night. Someone is always having a hang out which is the best kind of relaxed fun you need in college. Tons of campus plays, concerts, and classes put on by the Preformance Arts Department. Intramural sports are a blast, and so are all the church related activities. Sometimes the University hosts a few big programs. For example, the last semester I was there they had a musical group from Ireland, and also Bill Cosby did a show! It was incredible! And it is all at an unbelievably low price every time. I love it!

Campus Food: Upstairs in the Manwaring Center building, above the university bookstore, there is the main campus dinning called, "The Crossroads". And there are multiple different options. Chinese, Italian, a huge Salad and soup bar, a sandwich and wrap station, You can get a Thanksgiving dinner everyday if you like, and there is more than that even and all at a very good price if you ask me. Then downstair there is a "Freshen's" where they sell smothies and sandwiches. All in all, I have nothing to complain about there.

4 College Student

Administration: It is pretty strict, but you know that when you sign up for school here you sign the papers after reading the rules

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: Most of the people are very modest in there dress. A lot of people are looking to get married others are just there to be away from home. It is a good mix of people with the same beliefs.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: It is about average. There is not really any sit down places except Apple Bs. other then that you have have your typical fast food places to eat like wendys, McDonalds, Arbys, etc. That is about the extent of eating off of campus here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They do not have a real college sports team. They do have inter-murals sports which are a lot of fun. Some are competitive but there are levels for everyone to have fun.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of diverse people who attend BYUI. Many are from around the country and as well as other countries. Everyone is super friendly but not all of them are down to earth. It takes some adjusting but people there are extremely nice.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: My freshman year there was little off campus choices. Near the end of my years at BYU-ID It was hard to choose were to eat. My favorite for sandwiches is the Hogi Yogi and for pasta is Craigos.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: I always feel safe in Rexburg. The only think that is too strict is the parking during the winter months. People park were they can because you can not see any of the lines. Tickets are given freely.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I feel like the cost for 6 girls in one apartment is not reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't done my internship yet, but I totally intend to (because all of the BS degrees require one). Finding an internship may be kind of hard just because the field is so specific. But at the same time there are many careers you can do with Marriage and Family studies, so the problem will mostly be finding one where I want to live.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with the Marriage and Family Studies program at BYU-Idaho. It is very applicable in real life, the professors are talented and helpful, the learning material is interesting and exciting, and you're totally set up for success. Because of the career building exercises you can get a very clear idea of what you want to do--the professors show what you can do with a Bachelors and a Masters, what you can expect to be paid in a particular career, how family friendly you can expect your career to be, and more. Since it is an LDS school, there is an LDS perspective incorporated into the material, but at the same time it is very well rounded and addresses all aspects of marriage and family relations. The BYUI learning model creates opportunities to work with other students as well.

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.
