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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Student

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 Student

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.

4 College Senior

Administration: Discipleship, Education, Friendship – BYU-Idaho is an excellent school, but you must maintain the standards that you subscribed to at admission.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Amazing Experience – The school has such a great atmosphere! There are always things to do and great places to go. The teachers are all excellent and do everything they can for you, but it is still very competitive and takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do well.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Best burger and shake place I have encountered so far.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Getting More Diverse as Time Passes – Because Brigham Young University - Idaho is a privately owned religious college, the religious diversity is next to none; however, as each year passes, this University continues to become more and more diverse in ethnicity. I have met many students from Asia, Vietnam, South America, Africa, Australia, and Europe. As our school gets more renowned within the LDS community, more and more students across the world come to attend.

Academics: Options Are Always Readily Available – I am in the Art program and was able to take a course on careers when I first got there. It helped me realize how much information is readily available at Brigham Young University - Idaho because they understand the point of college is to help you find a career. They encourage students to take an internship by their Junior year so that they can get a hands on experience with the desired field. They encourage networking and have a wide variety of connections with people in different fields to give students options.

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.
