1 College Sophomore

Weather: Winter lasts FOREVER! Sometimes it snows as early as October and is known to last until April. The summers are nice though.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Lots of parking, parking passes are cheap, however it is highly enforced and many people get tickets!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of fast-food chains, and not very many nice sit-down restaurants. However, many of the places here do offer student discounts! Most are pretty close to campus, and even if they are not, they are still within a decent walking distance.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: This is a mostly LDS community. For those of the LDS faith the entertainment is just fine. But if you are looking for the night life, party scene, then this school is not for you.

3 College Senior

Athletics: All the sports are great and tons of fun to participate in! It's easy to become involved with ward sports and on-campus activities! The only unfortunate thing is there are no good competitions, not as much advertising for games as there could be.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Long lines for the first few months. They have always helped me with everything I needed! Takes a little while but always a good out come.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options when it comes to off-campus housing. I live in an apartment that is in a great location, right across the street from campus. I love my landlord, she is so helpful and understanding. The price was affordable, it is an older complex but its newly painted and refurnish. The parking is okay, but visitor parking is terrible! But that is just Rexburg for you. The school has a great housing website, and also bulletin boards.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dinning is great! I eat at the Crossroads at least once or twice a week. The prices are not bad at all, I spend at the most 7$ depending on what I get, including a refillable drink.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is pretty much every type of food you want, just not necessarily the best quality.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The local atmosphere is quite rural. There is a limited amount of things to do in Rexburg. The students and professors, however are welcoming and friendly in general. There are little to no issues with safety or crime.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Overall the campus is a pleasant place to be, but it is nothing extraordinarily special. They have sufficient study spaces and resources available to meet the needs of the students. The school has plenty of activities for students to become involved.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities are well taken care of and they provide students with many activities to choose from. There is plenty of opportunity for students to make friends and get involved.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are no official school teams or sports. I am not a huge sport advocate myself, but if this is important to you it is not the place to be.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school is really strict. You cant where shorts or open toed shoes, you can not wear hats inside, but i dont consider it a bad thing. People are very respect full and the teachers are very knowledgable.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The student life on campus is very live and happening. With our new BYUI center a lot of people can enjoy running on an indoor track and playing basketball on one of the 10 courts available. Everything is very modern and clean which makes you feel like you are at a real college.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: I really love the facilities on campus. Free gym to attend, plenty of basketball courts to play ball and the buildings are well kept and very well maintained. Very professional.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't drive a car around Rexburg then you might as well walk to class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Most of the buildings are really nice, well kept-up. I'm docking some major points for the University Library, though. The library is a major center in any college.

It needs some upgrading. The school needs to invest in their outdated library. I'm sorry, BYU-Idaho.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg has a good vibe to it. People are generally pretty friendly.

1 College Freshman

Weather: Winter Semester here is terrible. I'm not going to lie to you all, it's like Antarctica. If you attend for winter semester, be smart. Make sure you bring a vehicle.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: For the most part there is a wide variety of of food options and the school has a great meal plan set up. There is food access in every building and a lovely dining hall in the MRC, with cuisines from all over the world. That is the best place to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did not find many problems with receiving financial aid at school. The advisers were helpful and responded to all my questions very quickly. I was able to receive a great deal of financial aid to help fund my education.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: The transportation options at BYU-Idaho are wonderful, if giving tours they easily ride in go-carts providing safe and fast access to the whole campus. Other then that the campus is not a large one, and therefore does not require a lot of transportation. There is easy access to everything, and it is very cost friendly to students.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. At night they have campus security that is even willing to walk with you till you get off campus. They are very good at keeping the buildings secure and also have security call buttons every where in case of emergency. I always have felt very safe and a good environment at BYU-Idaho campus. This is why it deserves an A+.

5 College Freshman

Technology: there are many available computers for students to work on homework. Many printers in nearly every building. Some class rooms have Macs.

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.
