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.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: No Clue – BYU-Idaho is a religious school where all students are expected to live by the honor code, which includes no drinking, no premarital sex, modest in clothing, being home by midnight each night except Friday's it is 1am. These rules are not to limit people, but to keep us free from dangerous sin.

But just because we live by the honor code, does not mean we don't have fun! There's always something to do either on campus or with friends outside. Lots of people have huge bon fires in the sand dunes about 20 min outside of Rexburg. There are Many more fun things to do.

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.

College Sophomore

Parking: No Car – I don't have a car. But everything is really close to campus so I do just fine.

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!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It usually snows a lot here, but not this year! It rains quite a bit, but other days the bright sunshine is abundant.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love It! I've been very satisified with my education thus far. All the professors are helpful and willing to work with you in getting help if you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Relatively Easy – No special application process, have to maintain a certain grade point average. Have to take tests periodically.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love Elementary Education! I've enjoyed all my classes so far and really enjoyed the Early Field Experience. I made a plan early on and have tried to stick with it, scheduling classes is sometimes difficult, but professors are willing to work with you!

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.

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.
