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.

Campus Quality: The facilities are well maintained and the school grounds are always kept trash free. It is very rare to see any litter on the sidewalk while walking to your classes. The new I-center building is absolutely beautiful. The weight room is large and spacious, able to hold lots of people at one time

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: Most of the people here at BYUI are caucasian, Mormon, and straight. Not much diversity

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful, the class sizes are small, and the staff is very friendly

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's not perfect and there are a lot of old apartments off campus, but they are working really hard to improve the housing and apartment managers really work with you to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The housing is also really cheap compared to a lot of places and location makes social life for a lot of students really easy and really fun.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Rexburg is a really friendly place. The local population is really friendly. It could use a few more cultural attractions and places for wholesome entertainment, etc. but it's a really good place. It's really great if you're into outdoor activities. It's a small town of about 37,000 so it's not too crowded but you're also not in the middle of no where. Over all I'd have to say Rexburg is pretty awesome.

5 College Junior

Athletics: It doesn't compete with other schools but the competitive sports program that they have going is really good. There have been students every year that come and play here that have played for other colleges that do have sports programs. It provides for a wide spectrum of competition as well which allows those at a lower level to get a lot of good play and improve really quickly.

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: The only thing our school has are wecar which is nice because you can rent a car if you need one but the city has no public transportation. There is a ride board for long trips but other than that it kind of sucks.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We all sign an Honor Code while attending. According to the code we are not allowed to have anything that would break the word of wisdom that includes alcohol. If you are caught with any substance like that then you will lose your academic standing.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Nothing spectacular but they are definitely fun and get you involved.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Love it all, doesn't matter that we don't drink because you don't need that to have fun a good time.

Technology: Get the job done, I have my own though so I don't need them.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: A lot of the students here are looking to get married. They date for a companion. Its hard for those who are waiting for a missionary to date because they are so forward and wanting to get hitched to you. Its very odd.

Campus Quality: Dress code is strict as well as curfew. We also have to attend so much church classes to be able to stay at this school. We are so strict about a lot of things that it helps our school stay cleaner and have a classy look to it.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Student life on campus is different then every other campus. We have a strong dress code, curfew and many other rules. A lot of students have an issue with them but it helps keep everyone in line and looks better on campus. Being a volleyball player it is hard to go from spandex every practice to wearing basketball shorts its a lot harder and none of us like it, but its for a good reason.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is tons of off-campus housing. With the rise in students attending, the availability has decreased a little, but the cost is affordable, and most all off-campus housing is only minutes away from campus, if not right across the street. Safety is great, parking is available to those who sign up first, and landlords are always willing to get things done. I don't know any cons to living off-campus.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On a campus with about 15,000 students, three reported thefts in a year is pretty amazing. Because of the culture, people here are extremely trustworthy. Security is also among the best. No one fears in the night, and things have never felt unsafe. Campus security is always available and easy to get a hold of should the need arrise.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a small town with few attractions. However, it is in the middle of everything outdoors. A good day trip can take you to Yellowstone. Hotsprings are less than a half-hour away. The Teton Mountains are also very close by. Rafting adventures await. Fishing is always good. There are even sand dunes about 20 miles down the road. In town, there are dances, movies, bowling and many places to eat. A favorite is Costa Vida.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid department is extremely helpful here. They answer any question quickly and accurately. I've gone to a different school where the financial aid department was less than helpfull. I haven't had a problem getting aid that I've needed. A tip to students requiring financial aid at this school would be to pay attention to deadlines. Know when applications need to be turned in.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: This campus has a lot of rules, but if you understand why they are in place, these rules really aren't a problem. In fact, I'm grateful that these rules are in place, especially after hearing about what goes on at other campuses. The dress code that is enforced here really helps to add to the professionalism of the atmosphere. The cerfew helps maintain stability, and the honor code adds to the trust factor.

Majors: In order to get into your program and it may differ from mine, but I chose my online Family Consumer Science Education because it was something that I wanted to do with my life. Then I started to take the classes necessary. I also kept in contact with my advisor, so that I would figure out what was best for me to take and what I should be doing. I really didn't encounter problems as much as choosing what I wanted to do with my life.

3 College Senior

Local Area: The closest big city to Rexburg is Idaho Falls. There is virtually no transportation to there unless you spend quite a bit of money or have a car. In Rexburg there are 2 grocery stores, a Walmart, a Payless, a DownEast store, and a variety of fast food stores (most of which I have had many bad experiences in and frequently take a while to reach if walking). There is a city library within walking distance as well as a post office. For the most part the locals are supportive of students however I have heard whispers that many locals don't like the students. Mainly the activities and sports involve outdoors and are geared towards a certain type of person.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The Freshman dorms are really close to campus. They are not like most dorms because they have their own kitchen and living room. They are exactly like apartments here near campus except they are a little smaller and hold less people. I believe that these dorms are great for freshman coming in for the first time, because it is central to a lot of activities that go on as well as buildings on campus.

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.
