2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I wouldn't live in the dorms. They're cramped and depressing. You can't even control your own heater and there isn't A/C for summer times. They look you out if you're late for curfew and it's hard to make it feel like home. But the off campus housing is the absolute best. Most places are nice and a lot are new. They're reasonably priced and I wouldn't live on campus for anything, even if you're a freshman.

Weather: DESERT STATE – Idaho is a desert state, so it is dry all of the time. The highs are a dry heat, and the lows are very cold. It does not snow frequently, but when it does, the sky releases powder. The wind will chap your skin. I would recommend using lotions and remaining well hydrated. As a student who hails from a coast, I sleep with a humidifier year-round.

4 College Junior

Parking: Not Bad – Be sure to arrive in your designated area in a timely manner. There is no designation of parking based upon grade level. Just look around, and you'll find somewhere to park. More parking is being made all the time.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Vegetarian Options – The food is pretty good, but there are not sufficient vegetarian options. If a vegetarian desires to eat there, he or she is unable to order a meal with complete nutrition.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Satisfied Students – There is lots of cheap things to do around campus!

5 College Junior

Majors: Very Hands on! Its very hands on and easy to understand a get help

3 College Junior

Majors: I Love Exercice Physiology – This is going to get me to be a dentist in no time!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Good Degrees in Specialized Areas – This school has really good nursing, business, and agriculture programs, but no law program.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Some Good Local Places and a Few Good Chains – We have a Wendy's McDonald's pizza hut and KFC etc... Many of the local places have exceptional food! Because it is a rural community there are farmers markets and restaurants use locally grown ingredients, but not enough chains here!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Nice People, Very Homogenous Town. Culture is very focused on Mormon faith, sometimes students can be judgemental, but overall there are people from all walks of life and from many different countries. Many students speak second languages.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: There is lots of snow during the winter, which lasts from october or so until around April. During the Fall and Spring though it is really nice because it is warm during the day and then gets cool at night.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors care about their students and want them to succeed. There are so many resources on campus to help the students do well academically.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best School – It is a great place to be! The professors are great and the people are great!

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Very Safe – I have only heard of people having things stolen, but I feel safe leaving my laptop, books, phone, almost anything on a desk while I go to the bathroom or even talk to a friend. I have left things out several times out of eyesight for over an hour and have come back to find them exactly as I left them. I have never heard of anyone being hurt by another on purpose such as might be called criminal behavior. To my knowledge there have been no shootings since the school existed and there are emergency buttons to push almost everywhere along the paths outside in case something did happen.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The professors are usually great at answering questions and spending time with you when you need it. The course objectives and curriculum really help you to gain the knowledge you will need in your career and in life. The teaching goes beyond information to reach knowledge. Registration process is great, I have never had a problem getting into the classes I needed. The advisers are the only thing I would change. They have students there that do the best they can, but that don't know the system and are only there a few years before moving on. It is hard to find someone who can tell you something that doesn't change with each new person you talk to.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Biology Major – It is great to be in the biology field especially at this school. The teachers will work with you and are more than happy when you come to them with questions, especially when you get into the upper level classes. They seem to enjoy talking with you on a personal basis more than in the classroom even. They really like it when you ask for their help in career choice, advice, options, and opportunities. They go to great lengths to help you find the information you need. The information may not get to you immediately, but it does always come.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Buddulph Hall – The internet is a definite plus along with most other amenities of the other two halls, however, I would prefer to have the TV's in the apartments, but this one only has them in the lounges, but it does have a pool table and a ping pong table and piano which is nice if you play.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: A Lot of Variety – While there are not many top of the line restaurants, there is a lot of variety that is fast, cheap, and convenient.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Most people have cars, and Rexburg is very small, so most places can be walked to comfortably. For long distances there are buses if you don't have a car.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Strictness Helps Learning – The Honor Code, specifically the dress code, are very strict, but help create a very clean and responsible environment, which contributes to greater learning.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: BYU Idaho is a great choice for those looking for a quality education at a lower price. It has a great learning environment, the students are friendly, and it is one of the safest campuses and towns in the nation.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Its Growing – BYU-I is small but is growing a lot. New majors, minors and clusters are coming every year. Some majors are tough and competitive to get into such as nursing and music. But there is help for you every place you go to get you in. Everyone is very kind and helps you. I went and talked for about an hour with a science adviser as we figured out what major I would want to choose. He went through many choices and made sure I got something I loved!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Its College! The off campus housing I live, I love, its not the fanciest, not at all but its college and we don't need to live fancy. Prices have been increasing like crazy off campus, yet there are so many pros to living there compared to the on campus dorms. Our apartment does a lot of fun things together such as pancake breakfast and free laundry weeks. They make it enjoyable and fun to live there. There is a wide range of apartments to choose from, spendy new apartments to dirt cheap old housing.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: We Have Club Sports – We don't have large sport events, we have clubs and inter-mural sports, everyone gets involved and they are a blast. They have something that fits everyone and really gets everyone involved. The school just doesn't revolve around them.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs Are Not Used on Campus. I have heard of off campus parties that are crazy, but those don't even involve drugs or alcohol. You really have to search if you want that kind of stuff.

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.
