2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most places were fast food. Not really a good place to take a date. Most places like Wendy's, Arby's, McDonalds, ETC. Not the best experiences either as I have eaten there.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather here at rexburg, idaho is crazy. On moment it could be sunny and warm and an hour later it could be overcast super windy and rain or snow is often weekly. It gets cold here but it is manageable with the proper clothing

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Brigham Young Idaho there are a lot of exercise physiology majors which makes it difficult when registering for classes because so many people need those classes. But the internships are good and it gives for many job opportunities after college, workload is average for a college class and its unique because so many different directions can be taken with this major.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here at BYU-Idaho are very helpful, they allow you to come to them during their office hours to chat or with any questions you have, they are here for us. The curriculum is tough but it is strong we are able to learn the material with lots of class discussions to help us out and help us teach other students who may not understand and remember it and the registration process is simple and the class choices are enormous for most classes. Workload is said by many teachers to every hour of class is about an hour to two hours of homework which is personally not that bad, they give you enough time to finish and are understand in situations like internet issues or systems are down. Study options, BYU-I has a free tutoring center for all classes with students who excel in that area, it is in the Library where most students get free internet access and help if it is needed.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Because of the honor code everyone is clean cut, shaven and well kept. Students come from all over the United States and their are many international students as well. The number between girls and guys is pretty equal.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It is good but not great. The apartments are high in price considering the location and what you get. Most are well taken care of and the management for the most part is cooperative and helpful.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs and Alcohol is not permitted for students at anytime, away or on campus. As part of the school honor code all students agree upon enrollment to not participate with or use drugs or alcohol of any kind.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Mostly like any other dorm, but a little cleaner. There are also off-campus housing options for all students to choose from.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Plenty of school spirit and great attendance at games. It's not the major focus of the school, but there are some really creative sports you can do like real life Battleship in the pool or a school wide dodge ball tournament.

College Freshman

Campus Food: Students are offered the choice to live in a cooking or non-cooking housing facility, and live in a cooking one.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was awarded a scholarship but my student account must have had some issue because I was only notified through my new email account for the school and so I didn't find out until months later and almost lost it by not accepting it in time!

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Some people have a hard time attending this school because it's so strict. When you apply, you sign an honor code to stay abstinent, keep the word of wisdom, and dress appropriately. Because it's such strict guidelines people often have a hard time following them. But if you signed it, you gotta follow it. It's not too terrible.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's really depends on where you live. I live at the bottom of the campus, right down the street from the grocery story and across the street from campus. I absolutely love the location, my landlords are so kind and come over even in the dead of night when we have emergencies, it's pretty cheep and the community is wonderful. The higher up you go on campus, the worse the community is- but that's just what I've heard. I've never actually lived up there.

Athletics: There are no sports teams here at BYU-I; only Intramural sports. There's sports like Ultimate Frisbee, Racquetball, Basketball, Football, Swimming, Cross-country, and so on of which you can get a group of your friend's together, form a team, and compete with others. There is allows competitive sports too, where coaches watch, and recruit you to be on their team, etc. There's not much fan support or school spirit though. Roommates and friends are usually the biggest fans. But we have racquetball/wally-ball courts, basketball courts, a swimming pool, wrestling rooms, dance rooms, indoor track court, a gym, etc. all in the Hart Building open for students to use or reserve

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are a lot of computers free to use on campus, in the library, in the Ricks building, and so on. But having your own laptop is extremely convenient and I would highly recommend it, because you can use it anywhere on campus, it's always with you, and you can avoid the crowds.There is usually at least a couple times per semester where something goes wrong with the wireless network, but for the most part it is really good. You log into the wireless with your school username and password, and like I said you can have internet access anywhere on campus. Internet speed is extremely fantastic, but good. As for printing, there is a copy spot and printers throughout the library and a couple other places that the people go to to make copies, print papers, etc. However, I personal set up my laptop to be able to print off of any printer on campus, so I don't have to go to the library every time. And there is usually a printer in every building. You can go to the school website and search for how to do it and it gives you a step by step process. It costs some money to print however you do it, but for a normal paper it's only four cents per page.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I personally received financial aid through FAFSA, not as much through the school. However, the Financial Aid Office is always welcome to students, always there to answer any questions, and can help you search for the best scholarships available to you. They are always willing to help. I did receive one scholarship that was provided by the school. And if you continue to keep your grades up the school will pay for the rest of your tuition in the end.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not much diversity at BYU-I. The majority of students are white, LDS, republican (for the most part), and straight. However, you can still find some. We have people of African-American, Hispanic, Polynesian ethnicity, and so on. I have met people from China, Japan, England, Haiti, and Mexico. We have people from rich families to poor. You have your "pop stars" to your "Bob Marley's" to your cowboys. You'll most see people from Idaho or Utah though

Campus Quality: The school is always willing to help where they can. The Financial Aid Office, Registration Office, etc. are always open and ready to help if asked. The Academic Discovery Center welcomes anyone who is unsure about or needs to talk about their major, graduate school, or their future profession. In addition, in every major you are assigned a mentor, someone to talk to about those things as well. There are a lot of jobs on campus that you can apply for, and people to help you get the job you need. Student Activities on campus allows a ton of people to get involved and meet a lot of new people. The biggest and most helpful program on campus is free tutoring! Take advantage of it! It can really help prepare you for tests, big class projects, and strengthen your understanding of any subject with any teacher

3 College Senior

Weather: In the winter there is a lot of snow and it can get very cold. On campus they keep the snow and ice under control. Off campus there are no guarantees and you may see piles of snow that are several feet tall. In the spring and summer the weather is pleasant and frequently hits the 80s and 90s.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a rather small city with a constant supply of wind. There are a few museums, but most of it is housing and stores. If someone is looking for an exciting night life, then here is not the place to find it. Most businesses close by about 10 or 11 at night. This does make it nice for those working though because you are less likely to be working really late hours for your job. Much of what we do here is from our own making and usually is quite simple. We do have dunes close by though, as well as Yellowstone. There is also fairgrounds, a camping area, and ropes course for those needing a little more excitement. On campus almost any day of the week you can find some activity going on and a good amount don't even cost. Overall, I like Rexburg I just wish there was actual mountains to look at.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a variety of Off-Campus dining experiences, however they are mainly fast food restaurants and I have had bad experiences with most of them. The cost is frequently inflated compared to surrounding towns. There are a few places that are unique to Rexburg; however in most cases they are similar to each other. No good Chinese places to be found yet.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It snows a lot in Rexburg and is very cold, so it can get pretty icy which makes it difficult to walk around. I don't mind that too much because I really like the cold, but it is also very windy, and I really don't like the wind.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: We do not have much diversity. We have the ocassional student from out of the country or another race, but since it is a private church school, almost everyone is the same religion---LDS. That being said, because of high standards we hold, there are no extreme political beliefs or diverse sexual orientation.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: We do not have competitive athletic teams. We have intramural teams, teams within the student body that play each other, but we do not play other schools. That being said, no one ever really goes to watch these games and meets. I have to been to 2 track meets to support a friend and only two other people were there to support. Our school spirit is also lacking.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Because Most of the students here at BYU Idaho share the same values and morals due to our religion, BYU Idaho is a very safe place to be. There are also Blue help poles and security cars roaming constantly.

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.
