4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Tasty, Affordable, and Never Boring – The dining on campus at BYU-I is very appetizing. They have many different items on the menus and the meals are prepared fresh everyday. There are really no complaints. I love how they offer meal plans that you can pre-pay for. It saves you money and time. The I-Card that every student gets has money on it and you can use it to buy food all over campus. The food tastes very good and is easy to get. I am always satisfied and never left unhappy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: High Quality Education – At Byui the education received is very high because of the high caliber of the professors on campus, who are concerned about the success of their students. they are easy to get a hold of and are always willing to help the student outside of the classroom hours.

1 College Freshman

Transportation: BYU-I is located in a small town and the need for public transportation is low. usually students don't need cars except to run to the grocery store. many students prefer having a car to be able to escape the small town on the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Not Sure – I really don't eat on campus very much because I love to cook. Every once in a while I crave some of the on campus food and will go there to eat though and I am always satisfied with the food.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Hardest Thing I've Ever Done. We only met with the teacher once and all he did was explain the end of the semester assignment. It was very challenging because we had to pretty much find out own resources to study business and then make a portfolio about it. The experience changed my life though and once I was accepted into this major I felt so satisfied. This truly was the best way to get in because I learned a lot about my self and how much I actually wanted to do this major.

Majors: Excellent Business – This is a great education for anyone that has a true passion for buisiness. Figuring out what kind of a major I wanted to pursue was very challengin, but the school offered so much help in every category. Because of their help I have decided to go into banking and work for Wells Fargo in a mangerial postition. I'm not very concerned about getting a job because I believe that God will help me with this descision and forever.

Scholarships: The financial aid process for BYU-I is not very easy. The financial aid office takes awhile to get back to you on any of your questions, and not all of the counselors are very helpful.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Approved Housing – Most of BYU-I's students don't live in the dorms, they live in off-campus housing! All of the housing is within walking distance of campus, and it is very reasonably priced. It is very easy to find an apartment, and the application process is also very easy.

2 College Student

Athletics: Intramural Sports – The sports at BYI-I are all intramural. Since there is a 3 track system at the school, it makes it difficult to have sports. So instead there is intramural sports, there are meets/games for all of these sports, they even have uniforms and compete against other teams.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It is a pretty easy process, and if there are any questions, the school is very helpful. There are also easy scholarships to get, and the school is fair about them.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are a lot of affordable places at BYU-Idaho. They want all students to live near campus in approved housing, and I switch the place I live every semester and have been very satisfied. The most money someone can spend on an apartment here is about 1300$ for a semester. There are so many social activities that happen daily, and everyone is very helpful.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: If you want a very safe environment where you know nothing bad will happen, this is a great University. Everyone is so helpful, and there are so many security guards along the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: We have a new BYU-I Center. It is huge! It has seven or eight basketball/soccer/volleyball courts and an indoor track outside. It also has an amazing and beautiful meeting place that seats 16,000 people. We have a full purpose gym, a wellness center, and lots of other great facilities.

The dining area isn't amazing. We've got six or seven fast food joints but they are kind of expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Atmosphere – BYU-Idaho is amazing. You will always have a friends and always have something to do. A lot of kids play around instead of study so I don't think they're getting everything out of the school that they could, but the professors truly care about you and want you to succeed. At BYU-Idaho you will have every opportunity to obtain a wonderful education.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is okay. It is always hard to find a spot though. THey need a parking garage. They arent pretty or very clean...but sometimes they are needed.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The intramurals offer a great alternative to playing varsity spors. They are just as competative

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Try Gringos – For such a small place there is a plethora of options. I love how there is a good variety of different kinds of food as well.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Because this is such a small city there is no public transportation. They do have the option that you can rent a car to drive around town for dates and shopping and such, but it's kind of expensive and not worth it when you can walk.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wholesome Clean Fun – At BYU-I, they are focused on clean, wholesome fun. If someone is looking for a wild nightlife, they can forget about it.

Campus Housing: Clean, Very Small, Older – The dorms are full of very fun exciting people, however they are slightly older and there is not a lot of space. It cost a lot more to get a large or private room.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The spring and fall are just beautiful to be there for! The weather is warm and the campus is beautiful and green. In the winter it is freezing. Sometimes it gets to -15 and it is bitter cold. The buildings on campus are nice and toasty inside. Just be equipped with winter wear before showing up in the winter!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There are not a lot of close parking spots for students. It is also confusing trying to decide what parking pass to purchase because you have to coordinate classes, buildings, times and places.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: BYUI is a very safe campus. There are rape lights and phones posted all over campus. There are also standard that all students have to agree to follow if they decide to further their education at BYUI. There is little drinking and students are supposed to be home at 12 am, which helps keep the safety of the student. I have always felt safe at BYUI.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People Are Friendly! You'll find all sorts of guys here. Most are very friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking permit required and then it's still a long walk to classes unless you get a permit early!

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.
