5 College Sophomore

Athletics: You Won't Get Bored – There are plenty of opportunities to be involved with sport at Brigham Young University - Idaho. Anything from Basketball to Ultimate frisbee leagues. Pretty much, if you aren't very athletic, and you don't know what kind of sports you like, you have a lot of opportunies to see what you like to do. And if you are very athletic, then you are pretty much in Sports Heaven.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: Not Very Specific – The Physics program at Brigham Young Universy - Idaho is a very good program. The only problem is you really can't focus on just Physics. The school has certain required classes that you have to take in order to take some science related classes. So instead of having like 3 or 4 classes related to your major in one semester, you can really only have one.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Great, but Not the Best. The professors at Brigham Young University - Idaho are very nice and always willing to help you with your problems in class. They are super knowledgable and usually have previous work experience in the field that they are teaching.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Modest, but Too Much of the Same Thing. Brigham Young University - Idaho is a Church owned school, and therefore has a very strict, "Honor Code". Modesty is held very high in the rule book, and so you won't see too many of what the world calls today, "Sluts". Everybody usually looks somewhat professional in their dress. But since the standard of dress is so high, you see a lot of people wearing a lot of the same clothes. There really isn't any room to move around in the room of variety with the standard being so high. But the school has many activities that allow you to mingle with people from all over the world. Most of the students have the same Religious views as well, and so Marriages are very popular. If you are looking to get married, just spend a quick semester up there and the search will be over.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: They're Grrrrrreat! There is a large variety of majors that can satisfy most students. The business and C.I.T programs are by far the hardest and most rewarding programs here. Again, if you are coming for an education you've come to right place.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: BYU-I Do – Well you can expect to get married here! Its a private religious school so don't expect to get laid but do expect almost all activities geared around you meeting someone.

1 College Sophomore

Local Area: Well if you come to party, run wild and not get an education well don't come here. Its a small farm town that refuses to change despite the fact that the student body is now starting to exceed the actual population of the town. The education is second to none but the life and the fun of the town does need a makeover.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The Best – A lot of people have a problem here because of the setting, rules, and the housing, however, with all that said you cannot find a better education at a better price. The networking capability of this school is alone worth the degree. If a professor is offering you help it is because they genuinely want you to succeed so you should take it. The tutoring and the intense classes all come together for a very rigorous and rewarding degree. Before you graduate you are expected to do an internship and the network that the school has for internships is shocking! Especially in the Business department considering the President of the school used to be the Dean of Harvard Business! All that being said it is a worthwhile experience and the odds of you finding a job after school with the networking access here are very high.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Hard to Come by – You can only live in approved housing if you are single. So before you come here try to get a place in advance because it is few and far between. Up until this year the housing was very old and very run down. Expect in the next two years for a lot of that to be resolved but until then good luck and if you are married the chance are even lower in trying to find a home.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I definitly thought college schooling is way better than highschool. In college you actually learn stuff. We have so many fun and good ways to learn at this school, the professors are willing to encourage students to persue their dreams and give really good advice for students, they understand students, some proffessors are harsh on works but as long as we listen and do work in their classes they give good lectures!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Omgosh this school is so good at informing,supporting, and active for this major programs, they would always inform you with e-mail so we won't miss out anything that we need for the major we are persuing. They do so many activities or events that could be beneficial for our major and helps to prepare and experience with our major.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safe Enough Not to Care – Some of my friends goto school with some worries because they hard that people steal their stuff or violence, but here in Idaho we have lost and found and most people find their stuff even wallet or small things in the lost and found! we have honor code so people try to live in the honor code otherwise we might kicked out from the school.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My Very First Scholarship – When you fill out the scholarship you will get the scholarships. I got my first scholarship in this school, and I heard many of my friends got a scholarships this semester and it made my day!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Lots to Pick from! BYU - I has so many majors to pick from! And they add new ones every semester. It is growing so much!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Everything Is Close by – Rexburg, ID is a small town, but it has a ton of fun stuff to do! And just about everything is within walking distance. It is a wonderful place to live!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Wonderful, but Getting Expensive! I lived at Mountain Pines Apartments my first two semesters here. It is right next to campus and it is an AWESOME place to live! The manager is wonderful, and though I never needed it myself, the parking seems to be plentiful! I loved being so close to campus, but unfortunately the price just went up $200, so I can no longer afford it.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Once Was Found, Now Is Lost – I dunno about ya'll, but I like to go the cheapest route I can while Im in school. If I have to live in an out date apartment, that is fine with me if it will save me a couple hundred. housing is pretty decent priced, I suppose, but the cheap housing has been all taken out and pretty much the only options are the dorms and apartment complexes that are more costly and less roomy. BUT there are some really nice, attractive, and comfortable town homes and apartments that Rexburg has to offer.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Bring God Back Into the Class – This school is perfect for those who are seeking to combing secular learning with the spiritual. The scriptures teach us that through the spirit we shall know the truth of all things. Its so much easier to learn when your teacher begins class with a prayer, and we can relate our work to God. There is no cursing, immodesty or inappropriate behavior that would distract from your learning experience.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: This campus offers a variety of facilities that are kept very clean. There are a lot of new buildings that have been built over the recent years. The library is a good size for this university, there is a huge auditorium that seats 15,000 people, a gym full of basketball courts/track/swimming pool/etc.., and a nice cafeteria with different kinds of food.
There is a testing center that is provided for all the students to take their tests according to the professor's instructions and dates. Each classroom has a projector and computer for the professors to teach more efficiently. Computer labs are also provided around campus. There are also great places outside for students to study.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: One of the Safest – This school has high standards that the students know about before they come in. There is an honor code that every student signs and not participating or being involved with drugs is part of it. The apartments are not allowed to have drugs of any kind in them either.

2 College Senior

Parking: Very Little, and Note Cheap – There is not a lot of parking, and the passes are not cheap either. The only free parking is on the opposite side of campus from a lot of the classes. Even if you have a parking pass it is hard to find a place to park.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Close and Much More Room – There are a lot of options for off campus housing close to campus for single students. There is a large price range to choose from. Most places are within a 20 minute walking distance from the school.

4 College Senior

Administration: Strict Credit Limit – Because the school gets funding to allow students to have much lower tuition, the school is very strict about the school's credit limit of 140 credits. They will let you go over that. but not by much.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Safe and Fun – Rexburg and BYU-Idaho is a great place to be. Lots to do and very very safe. People are kind and share similar values.

4 College Senior

Academics: Great Opportunities and Hands on Work – The professors at my school don't do research which makes them available to answer questions when they are in their office. Being a Mechanical Engineering student, I went in to one of my professor's office after class and probably spent 5 hours on separate occasions trying to understand dynamics. He was more than willing to help. There are also a lot of projects which are hands on and help to reinforce the principles taught.

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.
