4 College Student

Campus Quality: The architecture of the campus is amazing! The scenery is lovely and clean.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: There a good facilities, loads to get involved with and opportunities to do things in the surrounding area.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am an English major and the work load is what I would expect, the classes are very practicle and help to prepare you for future employment and life. It also does a good job of targetting what exactly your emphasis is in.

5 College Junior

Majors: It is pretty easy to declare a major, it is even easy if you want to change it--which I did, three times, they do require that once you declare a major you write out a plan of what you plan on doing for the next following years. Which I think is nice because it helps you keep on top of things.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is a curfew in affect for all students and faculty. And the campus is in a small town called Rexburg. There are only fast food places, grocery stores, and a Walmart in the area. There isn't much of a nightlife at all.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most everyone has high moral values which is refreshing at times. But due to the religious environment you do come across many extremists. A lot of students can come across stuck up, close minded, and judgmental. But since a lot of students come from across the world you get a good variety. Everyone is very interested in dating so the social scene is very active.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You have a good range of housing pricing depending on what you can afford. The pricing for many places are very high compared to what they should be. But since you are required to live in "approved housing" you have no other choice and the apartment complex owners definitely milk that for all it is worth. The social scene is very active though. There is always something going on and it is a very safe atmosphere.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I love my school! The professors are always helping me and you can tell they truly care about you succeeding!

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: the issue with both guys and girls here is that they are very cliquish. Alot of the time, they will not try to talk and befriend you but close you out. Also, they are usually stuck on their phones or i pods talking but will not notice you. Also, if you are different from what is the norm they will severally judge you.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: transportation option is either walking, riding a bike, or going by car. It is a great place because you are in a small town and it is a small university so transportation is not really a very important factor. And it really takes about 10 to 15 minutes to go from one side of the university to the other.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During Fall and Spring it is a great place to be for anyone. If you aren't used to cold and snow then the winter can be rough. Don't worry though, despite all the jokes about it snowing 11 months out of the year it's really only Dec-Feb you have to worry about for the most part. It will snow outside those months, but it won't stay long.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: This is not a school to come to for drinking and partying. They make that pretty clear beforehand. You can find in there and you can get away with it if you know where to go, but if you get caught you could potentially get kicked out for a while.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: BYU-Idaho is a church university which focuses on the spiritual aspect of an individual as well as academics. We start each class with a prayer and invite the Spirit to help us to learn all that is needed of us. It is important for us to maintain an environment which allows for the individual to become the best they can be, in doing so we have a strict Honor Code which must be signed and enforced. This Honor Code states that drugs and alcohol will not be used, students will be modestly dressed, and that the opposite gender will not stay the night. It may sound like bunch of rules but it really eliminates the need to worry, the risk of accidents, the self inflected heart ache, and allows each student to be focused on school while having a healthy social life. We have programs to participate in each night which include all forms of dancing, many different language classes, ethnic associations (such as a Korean Association which I took part in with my Korean roommate) and also random activities such as 5Ks. There is always something to do in Rexburg with the university and we have so much fun meeting others who enjoy making the most of life!

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Absense of Drugs – Brigham Young University-Idaho is known for their high standards and expectations for their students. In order to attend you have to sign an honor code stating you will follow the standards upheld by BYU-Idaho. One of these standards is no drugs or alcohol use or possession. Failure to follow these standards will cause the student to be dismissed from their schooling until the problem/abuse is resolved. Brigham Young University-Idaho has guaranteed a safe and secure environment through their no alcohol and drug agreements.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are options in Rexburg but mostly fast food and cheap options for poor college students. If you want a more formal meal or one of the more popular restaurants the nearest town is 30 minute drive and provides shopping, eating, and many other activities as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Really the only thing I don't like about it is the Foundations program... it's a way to bypass General requirements but if you plan on transferring before you graduate it's very hard to transfer those credits.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't too many options near campus and in town. Prices aren't too bad in the few places we have though. Half an hour away, in Idaho Falls, though, there are loads of options!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Let's be honest, it's an LDS school... nightlife is pretty limited, but you get what you put into it. The school has a different dance almost every night from swing to country dancing. No alcohol licenses are given to restaurants in town so no bars. You can have plenty of fun thought!

2 College Sophomore

Weather: I mean, you kind of get what you expect. It's Idaho so it is cold in the winter which usually starts in October and ends in April... Spring and Fall are pretty short. Summer is beautiful, I LOVE Rexburg in the Summer, there's a lot to do and it's beautiful country!

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are quite a few computer labs on campus, and usually you can find an open computer somewhere. Printing is nice because you can do it from one of their computers or your own, and setting it up the network is pretty easy.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is already pretty cheap, so it's harder to get aid. They do hand out academic scholarships at the beginning of the year which shaves off a thousand dollars or two. Other than that, I don't know what else there is.

4 College Junior

Academics: All programs at BYU-I are wonderful. I'm just beginning in my program, but so far so good.

4 College Junior

Academics: Professors here are GREAT! They really care about you as an individual. BYU-I tries to hire only the best. There are some brilliant people working here. I had one of my finals at my teacher's house with a barbecue to follow! Its a fantastic and challenging school with many great programs. Some people think it isn't that great because it seems to be the younger sibling to BYU in Provo, but thats just because there aren't as many programs, and its in a smaller town. The education quality is the same.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Most people either drive or walk. Its a small town, so everything is literally within walking distance. Roommates or friends usually give rides if need be. I think there is a bus system, but I've never actually seen anyone use it. Almost everyone uses the ride board to get to an from home during breaks.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: You can find almost whatever it is you want. I would suggest being there to find an apartment or room with someone you know.

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.
