5 College Junior

Majors: i am very happy with my program. i love everything about, its so fun to learn about the body and how you can work it out to attain the best results. I want to be a personal trainer or an athletic trainer and this program is helping me get there.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus life is very fun. There are many different clubs and activities for anyone.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of apartments that are off-campus but yet close to it.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Students are very kind and friendly. They also have respect towards others.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The academics is great. Teachers are kind and helpful.

3 College Freshman

Weather: In the Winter the weather is really cold and it snows a lot. In the Summer it is hot outside and very nice.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A lot of people at BYU-I have good school spirit and there is great student involvement in activities. There are awesome athletic facilities at BYU_I

3 College Junior

Weather: I haven't been during the winter but I've heard it's really cold. When I was there it really wasn't too bad though. I could wear shorts on the weekend for about half of the semester and then after that I mostly just needed a light jacket.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: This is a private college and if you break the honor code they have every right to kick you out because you promised to keep the honor code. So you never see drugs on campus. Plus drugs aren't cool and the majority at this school completely agree and it socially unacceptable to do drugs.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Getting an appartment on campus was very smart. I am close to the action, yet not cramped in the dorms. I was at the heart of the social part, yet not too expensive. The process to get on campus housing was crazy though.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Well, it is a religious school, based on Latter-Day Saints principles so we have the Honor Code. It is reasonable. You know it coming into it. They follow it pretty well, enforce more that others. Just be in your room when its curfew. Don't be stupid with the opposite sex. Don't come here if you aren't willing to follow the rules.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: If you like cold and snow then you'll like it here. It snows a lot so just be prepared for that and class is never cancelled.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a decent amount of financial aid from fafsa, but as for grants and scholarships, it wasn't so great. prepare to pull out loans.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Great school, except there's not a lot to do in the winter months. Other than that, it's a super friendly upbeat campus.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have never heard of any drug use in Rexburg. The BYU-I Honor Code forbids drug use and encourages students to help each other follow the Honor Code and seek help for students who need it.

4 College Junior

Academics: I'm a Biology major. I haven't taken too many of my major classes, since I've just switched majors, but I've had great experiences in my generals classes. The way each class leads up to the next is so helpful.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I only spent one semester on-campus, and that was a while ago, but I remember the location being great and the social scene being excellent. Rent is cheapest on-campus and all utilities are included. Getting on the housing list is super easy, there is almost always a free spot at one dorm or another.

5 College Junior

Academics: All the professors I've had seem genuinely concerned about individual students' class experiences. I've always felt super comfortable talking to my professors about anything and class discussions are always helpful and informative. The workload obviously varies from professor to professor, but I've found that there is always enough work for those who care to dig deeper into their work to be sufficiently challenged, but at the same time those who just want to get by on the smallest amount of work will be at least able to pass all their classes.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I really don't care to dine out. I don't have much extra cash so I cook all of my own meals and my husband's meals. Still, we love being able to go out for Thai or authentic Chinese food if we want. Prices are reasonable, especially considering that Rexburg is in the middle of nowhere and something like Thai ingredients are probably pretty hard to find. Nothing is more than a 5 or 10 minute walk from campus.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg is a fairly small college town. It's pretty close to the Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole, so the wintersports fans better be prepared for some great times. There is also a nice selection of places to eat and meet people. A popular place to go is Sammy's, they have delicious shakes and host live bands/singers frequently for free. Sammy's also has parties too. The people in Rexburg are all nice people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: For me my school's the best. I love the vision and implementation of the learning model. It's great. What's not so great is that sometimes the professors take the learning model a bit too literally by assuming that the students are to do all the teaching. Also the three track system is great because it enables the school to serve more students. The quality of the teaching is very good though and the price of this school if you're LDS is extremely affordable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYU - Idaho is a wonderful place to be. The campus has great food services and a few other places to eat in other buildings across campus. Activities flourish on this campus and are run mainly by students. Students are encouraged to participate and get involved. Also plenty of associations to join. The campus is beautiful, the buildings well maintained and cleaned too. There is a planetarium, an art gallery, a theater and a state of the art auditorium for weekly devotionals/concerts capable of seating the entire student body. A great place to hangout on campus is in the library or more commonly at the universities food services' Crossroads.

4 College Junior

Technology: Its best to have a laptop in class for notes. They have macs in the McKay library but they do fill up fairly quickly. Its best to use the second floor if you want a nice quiet area that is more study friendly. The internet is fairy good.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't recieved an e mail back from my FA advisor. Its best to go speak with them in person.

3 College Junior

Administration: I feel the teachers and campus do a great job of reminding everyone what the standards of dress are, and what type of an atmosphere we are trying to create. It has a big effect on our sucess as students as well as the happiness of everyone involved.

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.
