4 College Senior

Academics: This is the only place I have studied music, and I know it is rigorous anywhere you go. However, there are a few things about BYU-I that make studying music here unique. The way classes are weighted, the scholarship minimum credit load, and the credit cap make for full semesters. Music Education is considered one of the most (if not the most) demanding major on campus. Time is always tight, and there are no electives built into your major. However, the faculty are soooo qualified. There is free instrument rentals and may opportunities to branch outside your normal instrument. There are many ensembles to choose from. The curriculum is quality, with a variety of classes. Rexburg is full of elementary, jr high, and high schools to get experience in (if you are education)

Health & Safety: Campus and Rexburg in general are very safe places. Walking alone at night is fine. Of course, you can't bank on being safe all the time. You still have to protect yourself and your belongings. But in the music department, I leave my stuff out all the time and have never had a problem. There are no crazy drinking parties unless you go looking for them.

Weather: If you attend school during the winter, it might shock you, depending on where you're from. They're really good about ploughing the sidewalks, so it's always safe. However, because campus is either uphill or down, have good shoes -- when it rains or when the sprinklers are on, the sidewalks are soaking! It's windy in the summer too. But if you plan your classes across campus well, you can have minimal distances to walk. Campus is only 15-20 minutes from top to bottom.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There haven't been many incidents and the crime rate isn't bad at all. The biggest problem that I know of is stealing; mostly from unlocked homes or bikes on campus that were just too nice to pass up. I have heard of one rape story, but I'm not sure how true it is, and there are emergency stands all over campus where all you have to do is push a button to call the police. I've walked all over campus at night and have never had a problem.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: This school is mostly made up of LDS kids. I'm also one of them, but I feel like many of the students are really self righteous and stuck up or very rebellious and are only coming here because of the reasonable tuition. The B+ is for the fun, kind, outgoing people who are here to learn, have fun, and to make friends. But it's not an A+ because of the large amount that just aren't pleasant to be around.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We have a dress and honor code that we must obey. Students here have high expectations.

4 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into my Accounting major was easy. I just picked my major and followed the class requirements. There really was not any specific test, or presentation I had to do. I just picked my major and stayed with the classes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Decent food, many choices, average quality. Vending machines are great.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are strict and they expect us to follow the rules and promises we made before we came.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It is competitive with very knowledgeable instructors. The workload is heavy, but I feel that it should be since we are achieving our BS.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: its ok but i would ather live off campus due to more selection

3 College Freshman

Parking: compared to the other college camus's that i have been on it is pretty good but there is always room for improvment.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe here. Or in Rexburg at all, really. People are all very trusting of each other, and there's an atmosphere of community and helpfulness on campus. Whenever I got lost my first semester, there was always someone willing to help me find where I needed to be. Crime doesn't really seem to be much of a problem here... some petty theft, but the police reports tend to have things like, "Moose removed from yard on such-and-such lane," or "three unknown subjects on top of [building on campus]."

2 College Junior

Academics: The workload here is a little bit strange. The teachers at this school give so much homework! I'm a transfer student, and there wasn't nearly this much homework at my other college. It's definitely worse than high school... on the other hand, it can be useful for those students who have trouble with tests to pass classes.

5 College Junior

Majors: As an ecology major, I love my program. My teachers are all amazingly supportive. Many of them took non-traditional routes in their education and/or careers, and are excellent resources for those students who are doing the same, whether by choice or by circumstance. If I could do it all over again, I would. It's preparing me well for my intended goal of going to grad school and then becoming a habitat biologist or working at a science center or zoo. I do have some concerns about finding a job in my field, but not too many- again, I'm being well prepared for my field.

4 College Junior

Majors: The internships here are really up to the students. Each department has an internship adviser who will know what's expected for your program. In my department(biology), we're expected to find research internships that will last a minimum of one semester. I'm not terribly worried about finding an internship, because I have a lot of support from the faculty.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my major was easy- as a transfer student, I had to declare a major when I applied, but when I realized that I was in the wrong major during my second week(just due to different names between the two schools), it was easy enough to change it from biology to ecology- just a quick visit to the advising center and it was taken care of.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt at risk or threatened here. It's a very safe town and campus. Not perfect, but extremely low in crime.

4 College Junior

Technology: There are many available computers on campus, especially in the Library. There are few times when I will not find one available.

3 College Junior

Parking: University parking is plentiful on campus, but when it comes to on-campus housing parking, it seems to be either scattered or cramped.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I would say that the dinning is alright. It's not anything fancy here in Rexburg, but it's fun to try the cuisine here.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The Brigham Young campus is extremely diverse. There are students from all over the world. I have friends here who are from all over the United States of America, as well as Chile and Africa.

4 College Junior

Local Area: I attend Brigham Young University in Rexburg Idaho. It's a great school that focuses on the positive aspect that come from following the honor code and living a respectful life. It is a religious school, and it is fantastic atmosphere to live in. It's a safe area to live in since it is a small town in Idaho. Some people claim that Rexburg is boring, but I have so much fun here. There is so much to do here during the warmer months, such as hiking, spelunking, bonfires at the sand dunes and just walking around town. During the winter months there is a lot to do as well, the school is very good at providing activities year round such as dancing and ski trips. It is a really great school and they education system is great, if you are not looking for a party school this is the place to go

3 College Junior

Weather: I love the summer and spring time here but it gets cold here in the winter!!! This last winter it wasn't too bad but I would recommend bringing lots of warm clothes if you are here for the winter!! But the summer I love it!!! It doesn't get too hot and it's usually always nice outside to go do something fun.

5 College Junior

Administration: I would say that the Honor Code is not strict. It just allows us as students to make our own decisions but then we there are the consequences. A part of attending BYU-I includes following the honor code. When I came here I decided that I would follow the Honor Code. It's a part of our beliefs also. We don't believe in drinking or premarital sex or doing drugs. I believe that the Honor Code is not strict but a safety for us that keeps us from falling into temptation and having to deal with the bad consequences.

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.
