4 College Student

Local Area: All Trap Here With Nothing to Do!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just kidding. This little town has plenty of things to do. Ok I lied but there's enough things to do if you're not lazy

5 College Student

Diversity: Awesome School – This school is full of diverse races. People in BYU-Idaho are super kind and crime are low. I feel safe here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Whether on or off-campus, housing is incredibly cheap and convenient. Both are usually comfortable and well-equipped with what is needed for a living environment. Freshmen arr prone to on-campus housing because it is right next to their classes and extremely convenient. However, off-campus housing is closer to other food places depending on where you have chosen live. Approved housing, on or off-campus housing has provided living areas resembling dorms, houses and apartments.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Because I do not own a car, I have no problems with parking. However, for the students with a car, I feel somewhat stressed for them. Paring fills up extremely easily on campus. It becomes even more difficult when the campus is involved with on-going construction. I have peers who needed to park half way across campus from their class because their was no available parking within a closer range, causing them to be tardy or extremely late as they ran to their class. Many students would say that waking early would be rewarded with a parking spot, however, the half of those students will still agree with the opposite.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are no particular comments I can make regarding Off-Campus Dining. There are a chain of variety fast foods that are available for students, but it seems farther than necessary. Regarding restaurants, of the few I have dined in, the food is of great quality and great price. There are, in fact, a couple of popular places known as Gator Jacks and Sammy's. Gator Jacks contains a large variety of sandwich creations with quality taste and reasonable prices. Sammy's is known for famous pie shakes and a variety of great-tasting fries. These two places are usually packed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: BYU-I has an eating area known as the Crossroads. The Crossroads definitely has a great variety of food choices and is extremely accommodating to what the student's cravings every day. All workers are friendly and this is where I continue my homework when our library is full. The campus also has a food area in every classroom, whether they are vending machines or a mini food stand filled with sandwiches and drinks. It is extremely convenient to have because many students remain on campus for over six hours.

Drug Safety: No Visual Pressure – There is practically no visible drug or alcohol usage. There is also no pressure to use those things. However there are students who do it quietly because if they get caught they will be asked to leave the school due to the strict rules.

3 College Senior

Academics: Good but Can Be Better – The Professors at BYU-I are exceptional, they really care about the students and are always willing to help. However, sometimes their teaching style is not good for college. Many have experience in the area but not as teachers. Class sizes are okay, some are too big for the subject and some are a good size where discussions are helpful and interesting.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Small Town Charm – There is not a lot to do in Rexburg, Idaho but there is a special spirit and charm that touches everyone who comes to visit or stay. There are a lot of campus event for anyone who is interested in the arts or sports. Instead of actual competing teams, the school encourages friendly competitions by allowing anyone who is able to form a team of people to play in any sport. There are places nearby like Idaho Falls where students can go shop and play.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking can sometimes be crazy especially when there are big events on campus. If you are coming for an event make sure you either carpool or come early so as to get a parking spot which will not make you walk a long distance. Permits are little on the high side and confusing with all the different types of permits available. The parking police are also very strict and diligent about tickets. Parking for visitors are pretty much non-existent.

3 College Senior

Weather: The weather changes a lot. Sometimes you never know whether it would be sunny, or raining, or windy, or snowy. This makes it a little hard to prepare for school. The morning could be gorgeous and sunny and then all of a sudden it would start to snow or rain and you could be caught without a jacket or coat.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Gardens Offer a Cool Place to Study – The Gardens are beautiful and there are so many different types of plants, flowers as well as covered areas for students to relax and study. It is like being in a totally different place while at the same time still on campus. I love to walk through the gardens and take photographs of the plants and flowers and enjoy at the same time being surrounded by nature. I love that different times of the year showcase different plants and flowers. I would not want to change anything about the gardens.

3 College Senior

Weather: Aim for Spring/Fall – Basically, it's beautiful and great weather from April-November. Then the winter hits, and it's not too bad. It's your average icy, snowy hell. But they manage the roads well and campus has heated sidewalks that are always clear.

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.

3 College Junior

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.

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.
