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.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Since this is a religious based school, the diversity here can be quite different from most campuses especially with ethnic/racial diversity. The campus is primarily white, but we do have societies on campus with their respected race that people may get involved in. Otherwise, this campus accepts all those that that willing to live the Honor Code that is put forth as well as accepts a lot of people willing to learn and grow.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The reason for this grade, is because I feel really safe on campus. Everyone lives the Honor Code and people are always available to up if needed. Emails are also sent out weekly if not daily if anything is to be aware of.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: There are a variety of activities that will interest many different people. Frequently the campus is being updated and improved in many ways. Recently the library and the MC were connected as well as the new BYUI center and the Hart building which helped create a warmer alternate route to walk in the winter. The Hart building (fitness center) has more equipment and allows more people to enjoy the benefits. The library is expanding electronically.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: The academic programs are becoming more noticeable than when I first started however there are some areas that are not well known or advertised unless you unfortunately come across them. There are many social and sports programs available and they are steadily changing when they are available so more students can participate. There are a variety of fitness classes that are free for the students to participate in as well as a variety of volunteer opportunities in the community. The track system may seem unusual at the beginning but overall most students are happy with the results. I have had a few problems with class conflicts but for the most part most of the professors are willing to help me find a solution.

4 College Senior

Academics: This is the only place I have studied music, and I know it is rigorous anywhere you go. However, there are a few things about BYU-I that make studying music here unique. The way classes are weighted, the scholarship minimum credit load, and the credit cap make for full semesters. Music Education is considered one of the most (if not the most) demanding major on campus. Time is always tight, and there are no electives built into your major. However, the faculty are soooo qualified. There is free instrument rentals and may opportunities to branch outside your normal instrument. There are many ensembles to choose from. The curriculum is quality, with a variety of classes. Rexburg is full of elementary, jr high, and high schools to get experience in (if you are education)

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus and Rexburg in general are very safe places. Walking alone at night is fine. Of course, you can't bank on being safe all the time. You still have to protect yourself and your belongings. But in the music department, I leave my stuff out all the time and have never had a problem. There are no crazy drinking parties unless you go looking for them.

2 College Senior

Weather: If you attend school during the winter, it might shock you, depending on where you're from. They're really good about ploughing the sidewalks, so it's always safe. However, because campus is either uphill or down, have good shoes -- when it rains or when the sprinklers are on, the sidewalks are soaking! It's windy in the summer too. But if you plan your classes across campus well, you can have minimal distances to walk. Campus is only 15-20 minutes from top to bottom.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There haven't been many incidents and the crime rate isn't bad at all. The biggest problem that I know of is stealing; mostly from unlocked homes or bikes on campus that were just too nice to pass up. I have heard of one rape story, but I'm not sure how true it is, and there are emergency stands all over campus where all you have to do is push a button to call the police. I've walked all over campus at night and have never had a problem.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: This school is mostly made up of LDS kids. I'm also one of them, but I feel like many of the students are really self righteous and stuck up or very rebellious and are only coming here because of the reasonable tuition. The B+ is for the fun, kind, outgoing people who are here to learn, have fun, and to make friends. But it's not an A+ because of the large amount that just aren't pleasant to be around.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We have a dress and honor code that we must obey. Students here have high expectations.

College Junior

Majors: I have not applied for an internship but I do plan on doing so. The school has numerous helpers on campus in order to assist you find an internship that best suits and best qualities for your major.

4 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into my Accounting major was easy. I just picked my major and followed the class requirements. There really was not any specific test, or presentation I had to do. I just picked my major and stayed with the classes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Decent food, many choices, average quality. Vending machines are great.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are strict and they expect us to follow the rules and promises we made before we came.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: It is competitive with very knowledgeable instructors. The workload is heavy, but I feel that it should be since we are achieving our BS.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: its ok but i would ather live off campus due to more selection

3 College Freshman

Parking: compared to the other college camus's that i have been on it is pretty good but there is always room for improvment.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe here. Or in Rexburg at all, really. People are all very trusting of each other, and there's an atmosphere of community and helpfulness on campus. Whenever I got lost my first semester, there was always someone willing to help me find where I needed to be. Crime doesn't really seem to be much of a problem here... some petty theft, but the police reports tend to have things like, "Moose removed from yard on such-and-such lane," or "three unknown subjects on top of [building on campus]."

2 College Junior

Academics: The workload here is a little bit strange. The teachers at this school give so much homework! I'm a transfer student, and there wasn't nearly this much homework at my other college. It's definitely worse than high school... on the other hand, it can be useful for those students who have trouble with tests to pass classes.

5 College Junior

Majors: As an ecology major, I love my program. My teachers are all amazingly supportive. Many of them took non-traditional routes in their education and/or careers, and are excellent resources for those students who are doing the same, whether by choice or by circumstance. If I could do it all over again, I would. It's preparing me well for my intended goal of going to grad school and then becoming a habitat biologist or working at a science center or zoo. I do have some concerns about finding a job in my field, but not too many- again, I'm being well prepared for my field.

4 College Junior

Majors: The internships here are really up to the students. Each department has an internship adviser who will know what's expected for your program. In my department(biology), we're expected to find research internships that will last a minimum of one semester. I'm not terribly worried about finding an internship, because I have a lot of support from the faculty.

College Junior

Athletics: We only have intramural sports here. They're fun, but don't really have the same things that varsity sports do.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my major was easy- as a transfer student, I had to declare a major when I applied, but when I realized that I was in the wrong major during my second week(just due to different names between the two schools), it was easy enough to change it from biology to ecology- just a quick visit to the advising center and it was taken care of.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt at risk or threatened here. It's a very safe town and campus. Not perfect, but extremely low in crime.

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.
