Weather: Freezing, Windy Cooldness Plus Snow. The winters are cold and misserable if you are unprepared, so be ready to dress warm. Bring your snow boots because the snow can get backed pretty high. Recomendation, go to Rexburg, Idaho in the summer time.

Parking: Parking is fairly close and you can usually find parking for your classes. Parking passes are pretty decent price though students who live within a block or two from campus are encouraged to walk to their classes. Parking is also pretty well spread out through different areas of campus.

Majors: Great and Caring Department. The History department takes care of its majors and it is relatively easy to get into the program. They take the time to work with their students and help them through knowing what classes are needed. All you have to do is declare your major and sign up for classes in History. After that you work with your adviser and they tell you what you need to do.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The smallness of the campus and the close proximity of the student housing allows students to make their way around campus easily without problems. If you are more distanced from campus, however, you must own a car or bike as there is no public transportation.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: High standards of living and strict enforcement allow an atmosphere that is safe, clean, and respectable. Students are expected to live high moral standards that allows me to be comfortable no matter where I am on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is only one place to go eat, but it has variety and of good quality. Not too expensive and very accessible.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Teachers, Students, One on One – One of the greatest things is that we are able to get to know our professors on a one on one basis. The avarage class size is about thrity students at BYU-I. The professors call you by name and are more then willing to help out before or after class. Also most of the students here have the same beliefs and live by the same standards, this helps the school have a strong student body.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Small, but Big – Even though Brigham Young University-Idaho only has fifteen thousand students in attendance, our facilities are the best. We have a building that has eight full-sized basketball courts, a huge studying area, and a ceremony room that sits seven thousand people. Our buildings for classes are very well kept and are a great learning environment. We also have a social area for studying and eating that is state of the art, where everyone comes to chill.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: In 2001, BYU-Idaho no longer had varsity sports, since then the schools involvment in intramurals has sky rocketed. Anyone can play at any level, and any sport from football to swimming and everything inbetween. The facilities are the best around, and everyone can use them at anytime. We take pride in our intramurals.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Very Humble, Helpful, and Exemplary – The academics at BYU-I are phenomenal. They have great foundation classes for each major. I am majoring in Early Childhood/Special Education and I am so excited for the labs and classes that I get to take. The professors are always there to help and will give you any advice you need. The registration process is also very easy. They offer free tutors in each subject, which is so helpful to me. There are many great study areas around campus that are beautiful, quiet, and peaceful.

4 College Freshman

Technology: Popular and Very Helpful but Never Crowded – I love the computer labs at BYU-I. They are so nice and spacious. They never get too crowded so they are a great place to study in peace and quiet. The copy and printing room are easy to access and very inexpensive to use. Most students have their own computers and laptops but the computers on campus are always available. The internet is fast and easy to use. There is no problem finding a computer to use.

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.

5 College Sophomore

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.

2 College Student

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.

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.
