4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The classes here are pretty small and it is really nice to have teachers that know you. The professors are really caring and reasonable; they appreciate that you are a human being and make mistakes.

3 College Junior

Weather: The winter is freezing cold and gets sometimes 20 below 0 although that is not all the time. Definitely have to wear warm clothes and scarves. The sping is nice, a little chilly. The summer is great. It's a dry heat, it rains sometimes and gets hot but not too bad. It's also pretty windy. The fall and spring semesters are really good. The winter can be a bit tolling. If you have seasonal depression I would recommend attending only during the spring and fall semesters.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are tons of things to do here if you are bored you just have to get out there. There are sports clubs and dance, writing and film and theater. The dances are fun. There are great plays and shows here. The landscaping is beautifula dn the gardens are really pretty. There are 2 movie theaters and lots of restraurants and there are fun outdoor activities. Plenty of opportunities to get involved too!

4 College Junior

Technology: There are computers in the library on every floor so and every time that I have gone there has been one open. The interent is pretty fast and the networks are very reliable. There are places to print in the library and printins is only 4 cents per sheet. There is a printing place that does lots of cool stuff and you can print up projects on different paper, special ink etc. The art students have priting places in their buildings and the there are computer labs in most of the buildings. There are mac labs on two floors of the library and in some of the other buildings. It's much easier to have your own computer so you don't have to go to the library but if you are on campus without your laptop or your laptop breaks you can use the school ones.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: A lot of people have cars, but it really isn't necessary. Everything is in walking distance, and very accessible. But if you need to go out of town and don't have a car, the university has a cool thing on the website that allows you to find people that are traveling out of town everyday and are offering cheap rides.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Rexburg is often very windy, which can be good or bad. Because in the winter Rexburg is often below zero the wind can be harsh, and it's hard to make it to class sometimes. But the spring and fall it is great, it's never really too hot or cold.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: All the facilities on campus are brand new, and very spacious. The atmosphere is very clean, and makes campus a great place to hang out with friends or do homework. There really is always something fun to do on campus, for free too!

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I would not recommend living on campus. You are very babied and they don't have kitchens so you must eat on campus which can be hard when it gets to be below 30 degrees. But good news off campus housing is literally across the street from campus, and it they have many of the same standards that dorms do. And you can also find off campus housing for about the same price as dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I don't think that BYU-I is the most diverse school with ethnicity or sexual orientation, but we are are VERY accepting of people who are different in any way. I think that with the school being based on religion we are still very open-minded to those who are not LDS.

5 College Junior

Majors: I have always been involved in the Agricultural department. They have always had the degrees that I have desired. I have had many options to choose from. The department is quite involved and intimate. The professors know their students by name.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Great students with great values! Lots of good clean fun. There are always going to be people who don't follow the rules. But 90% of the people there do their best to keep the Honor Code.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Very aware of any outbreaks and immediate to alert the students and provide a vaccine or anything else needed. The inform students of any dangerous conditions and provide safety tips.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: If you live in campus approved housing, you can walk to school without too much problem. I don't like that you have to buy a permit to bike to school, though, and you can get a speeding ticket for riding too fast. It's also hard to find a parking spot, even when you have a permit to park your car on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: Only the best. We have macs and pcs. All located in the library. There are some computer labs in different buildings and tutors are available for free. There is always someone there to help with any problem.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is no party life. Curfew is at 12 every night and 1 on Fridays. There is activities and dances held by the school.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is no fast food restaurants. There is a variety of food but it closes early since most of the housing has kitchens. Because this is a church school, food services is closed on Sunday. The food is good, a little overpriced but keeping in mind that tuition is lower than almost all other schools it is good. It is located in one spot and close to the library and other campus buildings. Deals are always going on.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the Communications program. They offer so much to us. The classes are well rounded to all areas of this major, the professors are smart and love helping one on one as well as much as they love to teach. They offer so many different programs and hands-on learning that you feel what you are learning truly applies to life and it's not all busy work.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into the Communications Major does not require an application or studious process. All you have to do is switch at the Comm Discovery Center office.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't done an internship yet but I do plan on doing one. BYU-Idaho requires that we have an internship so they help provide opportunities to find one that will help our future career life.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love being in the BYU-Idaho Communications major. They provide so many opportunities that will help you succeed in the career world. They teach principles along with programs that you will be using with this major and this applies to so many different areas of life. The professors teaching the classes also come from the work force, so they have experience to back what they are teaching you which is such a bonus and you can tell as you are being taught by them that truly were incredible in their field.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg is a small town but I really like it there. Most people are friendly and helpful. There isn't a ton to do in Rexburg but there are things to do in Idaho Falls which is about 30 mins away and there are natural attractions such as the sand dunes and the ice caves as well.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is pretty unpredictable. During the winter it gets bitter cold and snows a ton. Classes usually don't get canceled unless the professor cannot get to campus. The sidewalks on campus are heated so once you get on campus it is safer to get to class. It is almost always really windy so you need a good windbreaker and usually a scarf and gloves. It is nice during the spring though.

Scholarships: BYU-I is subsidized by the LDS church, which means that students who are LDS pay less tuition than non-LDS students. However, because tuition is less than $2,000 per semester the school has very high standards for financial aid and it is therefore rather difficult to obtain from the school.

3 College Student

Campus Quality: The BYU-I campus is a beautiful place to be in the Spring semester. The weather is warm enough that students are often seen in short sleeve t-shirts (not even carrying a jacket!) walking along the grass- or flower-lined sidewalks around campus. It is absolutely beautiful here during the spring. It should be noted, however, that students have been known to break out the t-shirts in 55-60 degree weather. This occurs because students who stay for the Winter semester have been acclimated to extreme cold.

Away from the cold winds and deep snow, there is a lot to do on campus. As a religious school, BYU-I sorts each students into a particular Ward at which he or she will attend church every Sunday. Wards which function well involve the students in several activities a month and promote friendly interactions between students. There are also numerous school-sponsored student organizations and major-related associations, but I am less familiar with those.

I can tell you, however, that the dance workshops, dance labs, and weekly dances the school hosts are a very fun way to get active, meet new people, and learn how to dance!

2 College Student

Administration: First of all, I wish that this grade were numerical because although the campus is extremely strict I do not feel that my experience here has been overly negative. BYU-I is a religious college with some very strict standards for dress and behavior. Students are not permitted to come to class unkempt (unshaven; wearing yoga or pajama pants; or wearing shorts, capris, or flip-flops) and students have been sent home from class or the testing center for not meeting dress standards.

In addition, students who break the Honor Code (no drugs, no alcohol, no sex or petting, no staying out past curfew) must deal with the Student Honor Office if they are caught or turned in by another student. If a student confesses to his or her bishop before the Honor Office finds out about the infraction, punishments are usually lighter but are still levied.

It should be noted that, as a religious school, BYU-I has a church attendance policy. This is enforced by requiring students to gain approval from their bishops before they can register for classes for their next semester.

Overall, I have enjoyed my experience at BYU-I thus far. I have made many good friends (and discovered that most students are not sticklers for the Honor Code) and have had a lot of fun. Although this school is very strict and really will dismiss you for violating the Honor Code, it is a very peaceful school to attend if you can live within the rules.

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.
