5 College Sophomore

Administration: I enjoy staying here and glad that there are the rules that everyone follows.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There is a very strict honor code. Absolute no tolerance policy for drinking, using drugs or having people of the opposite gender in bedrooms of apartments, on or off campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Tons of housing options for every budget. All of the housing is subsidized by the school. There are different kinds of housing depending on what you like. I do not recommend Heritage housing however, it's much smaller than everything else.

Off-Campus Dining: There are some good burger places, but most of the people I know eat at home or order pizza occasionally.

Greek Life: There is no Greek housing on or off campus. Kind of like beards, they just aren't allowed.

Athletics: There are tons of intramural sports to choose from. Plus the gym is free for every student and their spouse. It doesn't get overcrowded too often.

Local Area: There's a dollar cinema that's only $2.50 for a afternoon showing, $3 for night. There's stuff to do more on campus. Rent a court in the MC and play wally-ball. Tons of FHE activities, like roller skating, which is also on Saturdays. The ropes course. In the winter, sledding, ice skating, snowboarding, skiing, etc.

Party Scene: By parties, I mean dances. There is literally a dance every night of the work week. Swing, latin, ballroom, tango, etc. They can be off or on campus, almost always school sanctioned.

Campus Housing: I live in off campus housing in Rexburg Housing. The clean checks are much more lax, only once every other week. It feels very roomy and we get free gym, pool, and salon access. I've checked out Heritage, same price, but tiny in comparison to where I live now. Most housing is pretty close to campus, but going from the Stadium to the Rick's building is about a 30 minute walk.

Local Area: Rexburg is wonderful. Yes, people say it's a terribly small town and there's nothing to do here, but I'm from the countryside. It's like home here.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There was an instance where my roommates called the cops last semester. Some guys chased my roommates into the apartment and tried to push the door open when my roommates closed and locked the door. They also appeared at the back window and banged on the glass. Both the local police and the campus police took reports and offered their assistance if anything happened again. Nothing did, so I say they did their job.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I love the off-campus housing. The price can be a little ridiculous sometimes, but that's why employment exists, right?

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I have heard some pretty frightening stories about negative experiences students have had. I've never attended any of the parties other apartment complexes put together, and I don't plan to. You never know when they'll be bad. Then again, I know it would be much worse at other universities.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't know much about these topics.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: LGBT dating is non-applicable for this campus. Most everyone on this campus is trying to be their own kind of "fashionably unique" that they all blend together in a sea of sameness. Most guys are work out, truck, and gaming junkies. The ladies are pretty much the same, but in the female respect.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus security rarely-if ever-has to deal with big issues such as sexual assault, so they go all Rambo on parking violations and j-walking. There have been some reports of campus crime-although it is more like apartment crime. Some apartments have had things stolen BECAUSE STUDENTS DON'T/WON'T LOCK THEIR DOORS! It is a small town and an LDS college, so students lull themselves into a false sense of security and their stuff gets stolen. On campus, I feel totally safe. Every path is a main passage to a building and always being used any-reasonable-time of the day.

Off-Campus Housing: BYU-I has two "Off Campus" housing options, approved and non-approved of campus housing. Non-approved housing requires the payment of a non-compliance fee (I don't know the cost) and the cost of the apartment is up to the landlord-as well as how many persons will occupy a room; shared, private, or three or more persons in one "large" room-I have never lived in apartment like these so I don't have any further information about it. The university website has a housing page with many sorting options, but it hasn't been updates in quite some time, so don't settle for "taking the word" of the webpage. go to the private webpages or call the offices (most offices are open between 10-5 and closed for lunch break at 12).

Local Area: the town is quiet and small (it takes 15 minutes to drive from one side of the town to the other). Everything revolves around the college. The college is the main attraction and anything that occurs there.

Majors: I don't need an internship for my major, there are other options which I have planned for. However, my roommate has to have an internship, though she has to find internship opportunities on her own then have it approved by a particular professor. This is not always the case, however, it really depends on what your are of study is.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: I don't really know of any parties going on outside of "campus sponsored events". Usually the most interesting events, on campus, are closely followed an attendance fee ranging anywhere from $2-$15. I don't usually attend these events, so I cannot say if the price is worth the event.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love the professors at this campus! Well, most of them. I'm graduating in a few semesters and have accumulated my list of "go-to" professors that I know will work well with me or that I know their work load is something I can handle. There are other professors that I have placed on my "I'd rather not" list, but just because I don't like those professors doesn't other students don't. One professor, in particular, I refused to ever take another class from, but a friend of mine loved his classes and takes as many as possible.

Campus Housing: Really it depends on where you live. The dorms are right on campus and the closest to classes off campus housing varies as to location and convenience in getting to classes. The married housing is the furthest away, so couples can "practice being in the 'real world'". Also, the option to live off campus in non-campus housing is available, but the student has to pay a non-compliance fee for not living in "approved housing". Some apartment complexes are overpriced for the quality of the place, but the student is then usually paying for location (closer to campus).

5 College Senior

Majors: I really like the program of international studies here at BYU-Idaho.

Overall Experience: The counsellors and advisors are semi helpful. Most of the time they just try and get done with you as quick as they can.

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.
