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 Freshman

Parking: Easier to Just Walk – Its easiest to just walk to campus, and it doesn't take that long. But if you are going to drive, make sure you have a permit for the parking areas closest to your classes. There are several types of parking permits that all have lots around campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Great Program and Faculty – I'm in the Music program and its lots of fun! It's a lot of work and time commitment, but if you're willing to put forth the effort than it's all worth it.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Small but Clean – The dorms, like most dorms are small, but they are well kept. They also have good atmospheres.

3 College Student

Weather: A Bit of Everything – In the winter there is snow, not as much as I'm used to. In spring and fall its rainy, not to much. In the summer it gets hot, 80s to 90s. It also blows alot.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Rexburg has all the season! The summers are amazing

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYUI has a unique three track system allow twice as many students attend this university. This three track system may allow more students however each semester is 4 weeks shorter then a regular semester, allowing the students to learn more in a shorter amount of time.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Brigham Young University Idaho because of the atmosphere of the school and the high standards they hold each student to abide by. The professors are great they know what they are talking about and care about all of their students.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I haven't had much experience with the financial aid office. But they are pretty good at letting us know scholarship opportunities, etc.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug Use – Very little drug use or abuse. It's part of the school code.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: close to campus and off campus housing, but not very good cost wise. It's pretty popular though. Good shakes and food.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking situation at the school is okay, they are very strict about where you can and cannot park. You need a permit and you get booted if you don't watch where you park.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife at school is pretty cool, there are always dances going on at the school every Thursday. There are always activities that the school plans. You just need to look, but there is always something to do.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The computers at the school are great! They have a good quality and sometimes they do maintenance, but the school gives you an advance to when the system will be down. There is always a spot open for a computer and the printers are usually open. They have WiFi which is nice.

Campus Quality: BYU-Idaho: a Very Unique Campus – Here at BYU-Idaho we have high standards and we are required to live the honor code. Here BYU-Idaho is known as BYU I do :) It's been said that if you really want to get married then all you have to do is come here and you'll get married pretty quickly. I don't know if i believe all of that but you do see many couples on campus. We also don't have competitive sports. We do have sports here but we don't compete with other schools. We want to focus more on the academic opportunities here. The employment availability is there but since there are so many students the job spots go quickly if your not looking. However if you are in a financial situation then the school will try it's best to help you.

5 College Student

Campus Food: BYU-Idaho Food Availability – On campus we have a great "food court" if that's what you want to call it. There is so much variety from chinease, italian, to the normal hamburger with fries. There's a salad bar and also dessert bar and all the food is really good and the price isn't over the top.

4 College Student

Local Area: Rexburg Is a Great Place to Be – Here in Rexburg we have a pretty clean atmosphere. We have very few if any bars here. We do have restaurants and movie theaters here and we also have parks and dancing here. The local attitude to us students is really great. People who live here in Rexburg don't have a problem with us and we can usually go anywhere we need to without any problems. Granted there are some students that are obnoxious and cause problems but there are VERY few of them.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code Is Always Under Pressure – the honor code includes dress and behavior standards and many students find in confining and ridiculous.The point is, obey the honor code if you wish to attend. If you're going to cry about it then you don't want to be here bad enough.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: there really isn't a drug scene at all. I have yet to hear of there being drug usage in the house and never on campus. Alcohol is near impossible to obtain so there is really no drinking at all. Everyone who attends adheres to an honor code which does not allow for drinking or drug use so there is no pressure to use either.

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.
