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.

Academics: Your Success Is Important to Everyone – I came to Brigham Young University in Rexburg not knowing what to expect. I found that the teachers were more than willing to answer questions and do everything possible to make sure we were successful in our studies. They made me feel that it was my responsibility to do all that I could but that if I still had trouble, I didn't feel uncomfortable asking for help. They gave options for different ways to get help. More often than not, we always had class discussions and it made going to class feel worth it.

Campus Housing: Don't Live in the Dorms – I haven't lived in the dorms myself. But I have friends that did, and they hated it. The social life there is terrible. However, I meet some people who have lived on campus every year since they've been up there and they love it. So it all depends on your personal preference. As for me though, I will always live in off-campus housing.

Weather: You Get It All – It all depends on what track you get (i.e. Fall/Winter, Winter/Spring, or Spring/Fall). But it gets pretty cold in the winter. There is usually lots of wind, and we get some pretty good snowstorms. But in the Summer it can get really hot too. In the Fall it's nice and cool. Basically if you don't like the weather at the current moment, just wait 5 minutes.

Guys & Girls: I Like Them Boys. You will find creepers, jerks, and players just like anywhere else. However, you can also find quality guys here too. And those guys are always gentleman and so nice. They will do things like take out your trash for you, help you if needed, make you laugh, open your door, etc. I have made so many good friends up there. Any one of them I would totally be willing to date if the opportunity came, haha.

Party Scene: Partying Without the Booze – BYU-Idaho compared to BYU is extremely social. We do stuff all the time. There are tons of activities going on on campus, like I-Cover, Extravadance, Dances in the Hart, etc. People are always doing things like Potlucks, Night Games, Movie or Game Nights. And you can always include the spontaneous things like dancing in the rain or in the kitchen, bonfires at the dunes, or snowball or water fights in the parking lots. You don't need to get drunk or have sex to have a good time. Plus you will always remember the good time you had the next day.

Administration: It's All How You Look at It. The regulations at BYU-Idaho are to give us a higher and professional standard. You get use to them and learn to love them. I love the happy and positive feelings there.

Diversity: Most of the students at BYU-I are white, but we welcome anyone and everyone. BYU-I is a private, religious college and so religion courses are required, but no one has to be a member of our church in order to go here.

Drug Safety: Belief and Code – At Brigham Young University Idaho not only are drugs against our beliefs, but we also agree to an honor code that prohibits activities such as drugs. We live by our beliefs and code at all times.

Drug Safety: Drugs of any kind or drinking are not visible at this school. I'm sure you can find what ever it is you are looking for but it wouldn't be easy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Housing Is a Breeze – There are so many apartments to choose from and most of them are nice and affordable. The management at the apartments I have lived in have been helpful, friendly, and, overall, just wonderful. I have loved my experiences with housing at at BYU-I!

2 College Freshman

Parking: The Cause of Stress – The parking at my school could be a lot better. If you even want to park on campus you have to purchase a permit. It doesn't cost excessively much, but still, as a college student every penny counts. On top of that, even if you have a permit you can easily get ticketed if you park in the wrong spot, depending on the time of day. The parking rules can be quite confusing.

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Awesome! The guys are steady Christian boys who follow high standards and live what they know to be right. They dress nicely and are always well groomed. They take time to lend a hand and go out of their way to help others; even when it is not convenient. They are pretty good looking guys too. :)

Health & Safety: Elbow and Knee Pads – BYU-Idaho keeps in check with the students to make sure no one is harmed in any way. BYU has a great honor code that all students are to respect and follow. I do not know of any school that is safer than BYU.

5 College Student

Campus Quality: Tons to Do – BYU has a countless number of activities for students to choose from and all students are strongly encouraged to be involved as much as possible. BYU has also has a beautiful campus thanks to all of the volunteers that keep up with the plants. Flowers and trees surround the college to make it even more welcoming.

5 College Student

Campus Quality: Just Like Home – BYU makes sure that all students feel welcome. Even their website is super friendly. BYU follows all of the same standards as the LDS church does, because it it an LDS school. BYU is very different from other colleges not just because it is and LDS school, but also because it is very inexspensive.

5 College Student

Party Scene: Completely Safe – BYU-Idaho makes sure that students have a safe college life. Drinking, smoking, and underage nightlife is stricktly forbidden in all BYU colleges. I gave BYU and A+ because they honestly care about giving students a gret and safe place to learn. During the day, students have several activities to choose from, nightlife is pretty quiet.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They become your bestfriends. It makes your social life grow. It is awesome.

Majors: No Regrets! The major program at my school allows me to choose two clusters instead of a minor that will help me to be more hirable and have also helped me to get education into more things that I love. My major is excerize physiology and I have clusters in nutrition and sports medicine. These are all things that I have considered doing and the way the program works I can do them all a come out more well rounded.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Lots to Choose from and You Can Customize – I have not yet had an internship but I do plan on doing one. They will help to give me experience and can also help focus my degree into a specialization if that is what I decide. I did an internship in high school with the local hospital that helped me decide that physical therapy was the way that I wanted to go in the medical field and I have high hopes that the next one that i do will reaffirm that desire and remind me how much I live to help people be health. The school also offers lots of help in finding internships, that along with my good grades and the close teacher/student relationships I have formed I have no doubt that I will be able to find an internship that will do just that.

Parking: Small Campus = No Need for a Car! The campus is big enough to be nice but small enough that a car is not really needed. The only time when parking does get tricky is when there is a big event that the community is involved with, so be early or get some friends and walk together! The parking at my student parking complex is also very convenient.

4 College Junior

Transportation: All You Need Is to Walk or Ride Your Bike – Really this campus is small so walking is the easiest. Even the town is small so the. Rarest grocery store is just a couple of blocks. Now if you want to have fun on the weekends and so explore Yellowstone national park or go play in the city usually you have an awesome roommate with a car and I'm sure they will take you. If not the school does rent cars! It's an awesome school!

Academics: This school is a lot of work. It may seem like on the outside a Ali in the park but once you're inside you will learn that it takes a lot of work to be here And to continue in your specific program. You also have to apply to you program and you may not get in so you might want a plan B.

3 College Junior

Weather: Cold Winters – The weather in the fall and spring are nice. But the winters are cold and snowy.

4 College Junior

Academics: Helping With the Future – The experience at this school is awesome. The campus is small so you don't have to walk far for classes. Th peoria you meet are amazing and the teachers really get who you are. Each degree is required to have a internship which really helps getting to know what job you want in the future.

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.
