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.

4 College Junior

Technology: There are many available computers on campus, especially in the Library. There are few times when I will not find one available.

3 College Junior

Parking: University parking is plentiful on campus, but when it comes to on-campus housing parking, it seems to be either scattered or cramped.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I would say that the dinning is alright. It's not anything fancy here in Rexburg, but it's fun to try the cuisine here.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The Brigham Young campus is extremely diverse. There are students from all over the world. I have friends here who are from all over the United States of America, as well as Chile and Africa.

4 College Junior

Local Area: I attend Brigham Young University in Rexburg Idaho. It's a great school that focuses on the positive aspect that come from following the honor code and living a respectful life. It is a religious school, and it is fantastic atmosphere to live in. It's a safe area to live in since it is a small town in Idaho. Some people claim that Rexburg is boring, but I have so much fun here. There is so much to do here during the warmer months, such as hiking, spelunking, bonfires at the sand dunes and just walking around town. During the winter months there is a lot to do as well, the school is very good at providing activities year round such as dancing and ski trips. It is a really great school and they education system is great, if you are not looking for a party school this is the place to go

3 College Junior

Weather: I love the summer and spring time here but it gets cold here in the winter!!! This last winter it wasn't too bad but I would recommend bringing lots of warm clothes if you are here for the winter!! But the summer I love it!!! It doesn't get too hot and it's usually always nice outside to go do something fun.

5 College Junior

Administration: I would say that the Honor Code is not strict. It just allows us as students to make our own decisions but then we there are the consequences. A part of attending BYU-I includes following the honor code. When I came here I decided that I would follow the Honor Code. It's a part of our beliefs also. We don't believe in drinking or premarital sex or doing drugs. I believe that the Honor Code is not strict but a safety for us that keeps us from falling into temptation and having to deal with the bad consequences.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is great!!! At BYU-Idaho they have a food court where there are various choices of food styles to pick from. Choices include Mexican, Italian, American, etc. I love the food court also because it's a great way to meet new friends or to join old friends for lunch. It also provides easy access to students right on campus to grab a bite to eat before heading to their next class. The only thing I didn't like about it was when I was living in the dorms my Freshman year, the Food Court isn't open on the weekends.

4 College Junior

Academics: I feel that the workload at Brigham Young University is very substantial. I don't feel that the professors give us too much. They give me enough homework to help me to understand the material enough and to learn and grow from it. The classes are smaller which have allowed me to get more one on one time with my professors. I'm not afraid to ask questions if they do come up.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love the sociology major here. The teachers are wonderful and have different dynamics of presenting the curriculum to us. They are all so helpful and I've learned so much. I love the atmosphere here where we start class with a prayer. It helps me to better focus every time class is in session. I continually get emails about opportunities for pathways in my career and there are tons of workshops every year that help me to connect with potential job opportunities for the future.

3 College Senior

Parking: The parking is assigned by sections. You have to go and purchase a 30 dollar permit each semester to park on campus. With a parking pass you still have a chance of not finding a good parking spot or finding one at all. If you are in the wrong section they will ticket you a 15 to 30 fine. It is easier and more efficient to walk to class than drive to school. Most of the housing is close enough that students can walk to class.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food they have on campus at the Crossroads is high quality, they have a very large variety of food choices. The Crossroads also has value options, food items that are at a lower cost, kind of like a dollar menu. The value is pretty good, you can usually get a good amount of food for the money you pay. They also have several Campus Cafe's in the different buildings so students grab some food if they are spending a lot of time on campus and don't have time to go home to eat.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am very happy with my program. The professors are very helpful in making sure the students understand the concepts and let us know what resources we have if we are having trouble. I don't have any concerns with finding a job, from the research I've done the Computer Engineering field is growing rapidly and it is very very stable. I would do it all over again. I have a goal to be a Systems Software Engineer for a career.

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.
