Diversity: Lots of White Students – There are students from different backgrounds and countries, but a grand majority of students are white.

Guys & Girls: Good Values – Most guys and girls at BYU-Idaho have very good values and are not afraid of commitment. There are some girls who act and dress inappropriately just to get attention, but they are on every campus. There are many Utah/Idaho Mormons but also a lot of Mormons from different backgrounds.

College Senior

Majors: Sometimes Not Required – Because of my struggles with changing my major due to high credit amounts, the university recommended my completing a senior project instead of an internship. Many majors require the internship, however.

5 College Senior

Majors: Enjoyable, Challenging and Interesting – In Applied Mathematics, the professors are amazing. Their workloads vary, but each one is willing and able to help with the material presented in class. Most of them try to present the material in a creative or memorable way so that it is easier to remember, and they are all understanding and try their best to help you get the grade you deserve. They are focused on learning, not so much grades, which is why this is the case.

3 College Senior

Majors: Easy If You Don't Have Too Many Credits – For my major in Applied Mathematics I wouldn't have had to submit an application. The only difficulties I came across were because to change my major I had to undergo a petition process that took over a month because I was over 75 credits.

Overall Experience: I Love This School! BYU-Idaho is amazing. The classes are challenging, but not to the point that they will destroy your GPA. The environment, although strict, is extremely supportive. It's not a party school, but it's a lot of fun. It's definately an environment with good morals. I love the spiritual aspect of the school. It's amazing!

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love the Elementary Education Program! BYU-Idaho is very helpful! The classes are challenging, but not too difficult. Although I am not looking for a career at this point, there are job fairs quite often through the school for education majors. There are quite a few opportunities! It's a great program and I would reccomend it to anyone!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The instructors are amazing and all of the majors are really succeeding!

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety and security on and around campus is phenomenal. It's excellent. I had a problem once and campus security was there within 3 minutes.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: This school is known for it's honor code. It's almost impossible to get illegal substances. Now, this doesn't mean that people don't. It's still a problem. But, a very limited one.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love This School!!! I absolutely love this school! It's so refreshing to be around kids with the same standards.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: It really depends on which area of campus you live near, but it can go either way on whether you get a good group of people to socialize with. Plus, it's usually pretty mixed anyway, no matter where you are.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a Lot of Options Unless You Like Typical Fast Food – The community is fairly small so there aren't many places to go, but there are a couple of establishments that do a great job of providing good food at a reasonable price. However, the majority of dining options are fast food restaurants, and there are not a lot of healthy alternatives within the city of Rexburg.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Great, Could Be Better – I have seen how dedicated and loving are the people that organize and administer health care through this center. Although there are sometimes problems because it is such a small facility, the staff is constantly growing and improving to try to make more services available, as well as to be more convenient and economical.

4 College Senior

Administration: Discipleship, Education, Friendship – BYU-Idaho is an excellent school, but you must maintain the standards that you subscribed to at admission.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Amazing Experience – The school has such a great atmosphere! There are always things to do and great places to go. The teachers are all excellent and do everything they can for you, but it is still very competitive and takes a lot of hard work and dedication to do well.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Best burger and shake place I have encountered so far.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Getting More Diverse as Time Passes – Because Brigham Young University - Idaho is a privately owned religious college, the religious diversity is next to none; however, as each year passes, this University continues to become more and more diverse in ethnicity. I have met many students from Asia, Vietnam, South America, Africa, Australia, and Europe. As our school gets more renowned within the LDS community, more and more students across the world come to attend.

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

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.
