4 College Junior

Scholarships: There Are Plenty If You Just Ask. To get scholarships you have to go ask your financial aid adviser and they are usually pretty helpful in getting you what you need. Also the school give tuition scholarship automatically if your cumulative GPA reaches a certain threshold, which when high enough will pay full tuition.

5 College Junior

Academics: Great Teachers – All of the teachers are very knowledgeable, many of them have studied at other well accredited universities. The classes are small so you can usually get to know your professor and receive one on one help if needed.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It's a Church School – Most who attend BYU-Idaho are there not just because of quality of education but because of the shared beliefs that most of the students have. That's not to say their isn't diversity, but it's a very religious school and extremely united on that front.

Weather: It Gets Cold – Rexburg can either be hot and dry or freezing and icy. It's always pretty windy there.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe – BYU-Idaho and the surrounding town is very well kept and safe, it's one of the only places that you don't have to lock your door. Sometimes people will forget that they have taken their wallets or iPods out and left them on the table, when they come back, even if it's been a few hours, no one has even bothered to move them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I chose to live in the approved housing off campus and I love it. The apartments are kinda small sometimes and there isn't always room for everything but I very much enjoyed having roommates closer to my age in my apartment.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Students Have Clean Fun – The students at byui all follow the standards of the LDS church so the activities both on and off campus are good clean fun. To me it's a better experience to be surrounded by people who enjoy the same atmosphere that I do.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Defiantly Above Average – While filling out forms can be a bit of a hassle, and remembering to get everything turned in on time is a pain, the people are super accommodating and they'll help you work through anything you need. The office itself I'd probably give an A+, but since I just don't enjoy having to ask people for money in general, I bumped it down to an A- on a personal note.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Best Kids You'll Ever Meet. There is no shortage of friends on or off campus. Everyone is so outgoing that not only will you instantly make friends in all of your classes (especially if you do your part and get to know those sitting around you), but you'll make friends for life. And since the school runs in trimesters you get the unique experience of making new friends each semester while still running into and keeping some of the old. It's also really easy to meet boys (or girls) at any social activity, as the school is ALWAYS planning them. And, of course, going to church planned activities is an easy way to meet people as well.
And if you ever run into someone you don't get along with (a very rare occurrence), who cares? Chances are you'll find something you have in common and become friends with them soon enough, or you make friends with someone else and they'll make friends with someone more like them and you can still have a great time regardless.

And if you're looking for something more than friendship you'll find it. Plenty of people MORE than willing to have serious relationships that lead to marriage. People look for their 'happily-ever-after' here, and they find it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best Change I Ever Made. This school is wonderful. I transferred here from the Provo campus, and it was the best decision I ever made. That is not to suggest that Provo is not awesome as well, but this school has proven to be the perfect fit for me. I'm getting the education I want as well as the education I need, but I do not have to sacrifice having somewhat of a social life as well. You'll remain busy and on your toes every day, whether it's with school, homework, friends or church callings - and you'll never once regret a single moment of it.

3 College Senior

Parking: Because it is a relatively small campus (it takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end to the other), if you park far away because there isn't a spot close to your class, you only have to get to school about 10-15 minutes early. There is a new parking system that divides up parking lots, and depending on which end of campus you're on you can get decent parking. South parking permits are cheaper and more available, so if you're on that end of campus anyway it's a good deal. North parking is much more crowded.
Campus security is very strict about ticketing if you are parking in the wrong spot. Tickets are usually about $25.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Lots of White Students – There are students from different backgrounds and countries, but a grand majority of students are white.

Guys & Girls: Good Values – Most guys and girls at BYU-Idaho have very good values and are not afraid of commitment. There are some girls who act and dress inappropriately just to get attention, but they are on every campus. There are many Utah/Idaho Mormons but also a lot of Mormons from different backgrounds.

College Senior

Majors: Sometimes Not Required – Because of my struggles with changing my major due to high credit amounts, the university recommended my completing a senior project instead of an internship. Many majors require the internship, however.

5 College Senior

Majors: Enjoyable, Challenging and Interesting – In Applied Mathematics, the professors are amazing. Their workloads vary, but each one is willing and able to help with the material presented in class. Most of them try to present the material in a creative or memorable way so that it is easier to remember, and they are all understanding and try their best to help you get the grade you deserve. They are focused on learning, not so much grades, which is why this is the case.

3 College Senior

Majors: Easy If You Don't Have Too Many Credits – For my major in Applied Mathematics I wouldn't have had to submit an application. The only difficulties I came across were because to change my major I had to undergo a petition process that took over a month because I was over 75 credits.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love This School! BYU-Idaho is amazing. The classes are challenging, but not to the point that they will destroy your GPA. The environment, although strict, is extremely supportive. It's not a party school, but it's a lot of fun. It's definately an environment with good morals. I love the spiritual aspect of the school. It's amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love the Elementary Education Program! BYU-Idaho is very helpful! The classes are challenging, but not too difficult. Although I am not looking for a career at this point, there are job fairs quite often through the school for education majors. There are quite a few opportunities! It's a great program and I would reccomend it to anyone!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The instructors are amazing and all of the majors are really succeeding!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on and around campus is phenomenal. It's excellent. I had a problem once and campus security was there within 3 minutes.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: This school is known for it's honor code. It's almost impossible to get illegal substances. Now, this doesn't mean that people don't. It's still a problem. But, a very limited one.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love This School!!! I absolutely love this school! It's so refreshing to be around kids with the same standards.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It really depends on which area of campus you live near, but it can go either way on whether you get a good group of people to socialize with. Plus, it's usually pretty mixed anyway, no matter where you are.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a Lot of Options Unless You Like Typical Fast Food – The community is fairly small so there aren't many places to go, but there are a couple of establishments that do a great job of providing good food at a reasonable price. However, the majority of dining options are fast food restaurants, and there are not a lot of healthy alternatives within the city of Rexburg.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Great, Could Be Better – I have seen how dedicated and loving are the people that organize and administer health care through this center. Although there are sometimes problems because it is such a small facility, the staff is constantly growing and improving to try to make more services available, as well as to be more convenient and economical.

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.
