4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining at BYUI is pretty good. There is often community discounts going on, and almost always there is some kind of student discount. The costs are usually quite reasonable at most restaurants around town. The town is not very big, so anyone could walk to the restaurants in 30 minutes or so from campus. There is not a huge variety of restaurants, but you do get your standard fast food places for the most part (Mcdonalds, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, Arby's). There is several Hispanic food restaurants. Gringos will give you quite a bit of food for not very much. Then we also have Pizza places like Pizza Hut, Papa Murpheys, 5-buck-pizza, Little Ceasers, Dominos, and Craigos (called something else now though). Rexburg has lots of icecream/frozen yogurt places. Overall, a good supply of restaurants for the average student. Not many real fancy expensive places though, like Olive Garden. Although there are places like that only 40 min away in Idaho Falls. OH! And you have to try the Taco Bus's/Trucks that are around town. Great food!

Scholarships: If you expect the financial aid process to be a matter of "sit back and relax", your wrong. It isn't a matter of just submitting your name either. There is usually a few papers to print and fill out. Plus you need to go online and fill out the long FAFSA application first. Honestly though, that's not very much to do for extra college cash! This is free money, that requires very little work. BYUI is already a very inexpensive college, so to have money to help cover the cost is amazing! It does help to get your applications and paperwork in ASAP, so that you can get your reward sooner. Otherwise you may not get it in time to pay the debts you owe.

Campus Housing: The dorms are accommodating for living standards. I lived in the dorms 3 years ago and they did not offer TV in each room. Also I believe that 1 bathroom for 4 girls made things difficult. Also we could not control the temperature in our rooms. On a positive note, we had a stove, and a fridge. Hot water was wonderful for long showers. The internet on campus is very fast!

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics offered at BYU-I are excellent. I believe that the curriculum offered allows the students to understand and grow from the course. I believe that it depends mostly on the students and their willingness to thrive in the course. The teachers provide one on one time , always welcome to any questions that might have. They also provide extra material such as videos, and games to help the students understand. We have access to free tutoring which provides more help.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am in the Business and Communication College, they are extremely detailed with their students. Most of the professors were CEO's and will share their experience through the glory days to the pitfalls. Most of them want to see us succeed and will enable that through interactive learning. They are always willing to discuss options and aspects of your major. I am very satisfied to be attending a university with such high standard and a level of care for their students.

Scholarships: BYU-Idaho is willing to help you get the financial aid you need. However, every year I must go through a verification process to make sure I am not falsifying my documents. This occurs because my parents are between a potential divorce. It causes great agony to have to discuss my parents relationship with the department. Beside that problem everything works out well.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Most places are campus approved housing. Byui has a long list on their website that makes it easy to compare and find something.

4 College Senior

Transportation: The town is fairly small, but with all the students it's crammed tight full of shops and restaraunts, most of them right next to campus. Public transportation isn't all that necessary.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: They have a great cafeteria. They call it the crossroads. They serve sit down style dinners. Prices are fair. There's a host of eating options around the campus as well.

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus. Many students frequently leave their front doors unlocked and open. the only problem i've seen is some ex students setting off firecrackers outside our dorm building in the middle of the night.

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are forbidden on this campus. I have never met anybody who does do drugs or drinks and if a student is caught doing either, the consequences are severe

Technology: Its very easy to get an inexpensive computer plus free software. all on campus dorms have free wifi but i don't know about off campus. the library has tons of computers but it can sometimes be hard to get one. A lot of people had trouble connecting to the campus wifi the first week but the help desk is very helpful.

5 College Freshman

Majors: i'm a prospective dance major and so far, its been amazing. the teachers are very knowledgeable in their fields. they have a lot of experience and some like to focus on preventing/avoiding injury. its ok if you accidentally sign up for the wrong skill level of class because the first week is generally placement tests in any class you're in so you'll get in the classes that fit your skill level

Weather: One day can start off at 35 degrees and get up to 80 in the middle of the day so its hard to tell if you should bring a jacket or not. It snows a lot in the winter so if you hate snow, its a no go. From what i've heard, a lot of people building hop to avoid the cold. Its also very windy and dry here so bring lots of chapstick. But, the weather doesn't really affect the classes.

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of options including renting a house with some friends, apartments with or without roommates, etc. Plus, most places have kitchens but not all the mens apartments from what i've heard. There's also a wide range of prices from about $800 to $2000 per semester (3 months). Some come with gyms, pools, spas, etc.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Good but Close Early – The Crossroads [the dining place at Brigham Young University] usually had good food, but they close SO early! It was hard to eat there because I was still in class or busy with homework and once I had time to eat, it was closed! I would have given it a better rating if they stayed open past 6:00 pm.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Everyone Is Willing to Help Out – What I have learned so far from being an Integrated Studio Arts Major at BYU-Idaho is that everyone is willing to help out. At Brigham Young University- Idaho, we have what is called the Learning Model and one of the main parts of the Learning Model is to "Teach One Another." With this Learning Model, students learn to give positive feedback and learn to critique in such a way that is helpful to the student being critiqued. The professors at BYU-Idaho are also always willing to help students out if they are struggling with a certain assignment or project. They give honest opinions and really try to help the students reach their full potential.

3 College Freshman

Technology: Good but Crowded and Slow – The computers on campus aren't ancient or bad but they are often slow and there aren't very many so they are usually full. Campus networking makes up for this however by making it easy for you to use your own laptop or mobile device.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is literally no drug use at Brigham Young University - Idaho. On the rare occasion that somebody is found to use they are immediately faced with disciplinary action, usually facing academic probation for a semester or more.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Completely Safe – As a religiously sponsored school the requirements to attend are very strict and as such safety is phenominal. Although I personally feel a need to lock my door simply out of habit, I am the definate minority. Alcohol, tobacco use, and drugs are strictly forbidden for students to use and disciplinary action is taken when those terms are violated. Overall it is an extremely safe and health conscious school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Availability but Little Variety – There is so much housing available for students in Rexburg but unfortunately it is very similar. There are a few complexes that are unique but the majority are cookie cutter apartment complexes. The prices are great though and all of the student housing is so close to campus that having a car isn't necessary and neither is using public transportation.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Once I used the computer at BYUI, I relied on the clock on the computer, which is wrong. Therefore, I was late for the class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are helpful; classmates are nice; and I enjoy studying here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: No Comment – Since I didn't play any sport, so I didn't have much to say about it.

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.
