4 College Sophomore

Parking: There are parking lots locating all around campus. Most kids prefer to walk since the campus is small enough that walking can be an option so therefore, parking spots are always available. The cost of a parking permit is inexpensive and very manageable for college students.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The Food Is Good but Expensive – They have a good variety of everything. They weigh it by the pound and thats how you pay.

4 College Senior

Academics: Easy Peasy – The program/workload/curriculum, etc., are all very easy. Everyone gets an internship if they go through the process correctly. Facilities are very nice.

4 College Senior

Academics: This May Sound Funny but . . . Professors are good, if they're hard to understand, they're an easy grader, for the most part.

4 College Senior

Technology: Good Except for . . . If you're on a school computer it takes forever to log in and the internet is so-so on speed. That's if you can get a computer. With that said, printing on campus is 4 cents a page, not bad, and you can download a wireless link to the printers and print what or when ever you want. Wireless access is easy and internet is generally up to speed. When the system will be down they send out email notifications the day before and try to do it while the students/faculty are at home sleeping. Absolutely need a personal computer, but not necessarily a printer.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Not Important – I don't know much about the sports here. They are intermural. Friends go to games friends are in. There are two sections for each sport: competitive and recreational. The competitive teams are assigned one of 9? names the school has. The recreational teams pick their own name as a team. More people get to play with intermurals, but I still think we should have a "best" team that competes against other schools.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Pricey but Nice – for a small town, the apartments are expensive! They are nice places for the most part, though. In married housing most places don't have everything included like they do in single housing, which stinks!

4 College Senior

Academics: Helpful Toward Students – The curriculum is decent and I feel like it's important stuff. The professors are always willing to help and give up there time for the students. There are many opportunities for tutors and help from other students as well.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Safe and Fun – It is a church sponsored school so not crazy activity but there are always fun activities going on and places to check out.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Needs to Be Easier – They try to give so many scholarships that they are all small amounts and if you lose it, it becomes harder to get it back.

1 College Senior

Weather: Just Wear a Good Coat – Fce the facts the worst thing about the school is the weather. Buck up wear a coat go about happy you can't control it.

5 College Senior

Academics: Best You Can Get – The supply chain mangment teachers are the best. The companies they came from are begging to have them back. Best flat out.

5 College Senior

Academics: Great All Around – Great people great student body. Most professors are from and worked in the field they teach

4 College Senior

Diversity: Mormons Are in Majority but Not a Bad Thing – It is true that Mormons are. In the majority at the school. However they are are extremely accepting of other religions and backgrounds. Most are gunfire inlay interested in different beliefs are as long as you are not rude and pushy about your beliefs they are loved all the same.

4 College Student

Local Area: All Trap Here With Nothing to Do!!!!!!!!!!! I'm just kidding. This little town has plenty of things to do. Ok I lied but there's enough things to do if you're not lazy

5 College Student

Diversity: Awesome School – This school is full of diverse races. People in BYU-Idaho are super kind and crime are low. I feel safe here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Whether on or off-campus, housing is incredibly cheap and convenient. Both are usually comfortable and well-equipped with what is needed for a living environment. Freshmen arr prone to on-campus housing because it is right next to their classes and extremely convenient. However, off-campus housing is closer to other food places depending on where you have chosen live. Approved housing, on or off-campus housing has provided living areas resembling dorms, houses and apartments.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Because I do not own a car, I have no problems with parking. However, for the students with a car, I feel somewhat stressed for them. Paring fills up extremely easily on campus. It becomes even more difficult when the campus is involved with on-going construction. I have peers who needed to park half way across campus from their class because their was no available parking within a closer range, causing them to be tardy or extremely late as they ran to their class. Many students would say that waking early would be rewarded with a parking spot, however, the half of those students will still agree with the opposite.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are no particular comments I can make regarding Off-Campus Dining. There are a chain of variety fast foods that are available for students, but it seems farther than necessary. Regarding restaurants, of the few I have dined in, the food is of great quality and great price. There are, in fact, a couple of popular places known as Gator Jacks and Sammy's. Gator Jacks contains a large variety of sandwich creations with quality taste and reasonable prices. Sammy's is known for famous pie shakes and a variety of great-tasting fries. These two places are usually packed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: BYU-I has an eating area known as the Crossroads. The Crossroads definitely has a great variety of food choices and is extremely accommodating to what the student's cravings every day. All workers are friendly and this is where I continue my homework when our library is full. The campus also has a food area in every classroom, whether they are vending machines or a mini food stand filled with sandwiches and drinks. It is extremely convenient to have because many students remain on campus for over six hours.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: No Visual Pressure – There is practically no visible drug or alcohol usage. There is also no pressure to use those things. However there are students who do it quietly because if they get caught they will be asked to leave the school due to the strict rules.

3 College Senior

Academics: Good but Can Be Better – The Professors at BYU-I are exceptional, they really care about the students and are always willing to help. However, sometimes their teaching style is not good for college. Many have experience in the area but not as teachers. Class sizes are okay, some are too big for the subject and some are a good size where discussions are helpful and interesting.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Small Town Charm – There is not a lot to do in Rexburg, Idaho but there is a special spirit and charm that touches everyone who comes to visit or stay. There are a lot of campus event for anyone who is interested in the arts or sports. Instead of actual competing teams, the school encourages friendly competitions by allowing anyone who is able to form a team of people to play in any sport. There are places nearby like Idaho Falls where students can go shop and play.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking can sometimes be crazy especially when there are big events on campus. If you are coming for an event make sure you either carpool or come early so as to get a parking spot which will not make you walk a long distance. Permits are little on the high side and confusing with all the different types of permits available. The parking police are also very strict and diligent about tickets. Parking for visitors are pretty much non-existent.

3 College Senior

Weather: The weather changes a lot. Sometimes you never know whether it would be sunny, or raining, or windy, or snowy. This makes it a little hard to prepare for school. The morning could be gorgeous and sunny and then all of a sudden it would start to snow or rain and you could be caught without a jacket or coat.

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.
