5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is plenty of diversity on our campus. Many people are from different economic and cultural backgrounds, which is great. But the best thing of all is that we all share the same beliefs.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Brigham Young University Idaho has a great selection of off campus housing, all of which are great and easy to find. The only down side is the fact that a lot of them fill up fast so you have to get one as early as possible.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You can find plenty of beautiful girls. If you're a Mormon guy, finding girls to date is as easy as checking to see if girls have wedding rings or not. There are plenty of returned missionaries for the ladies to choose from. If you're not Mormon, good luck finding a date.

Majors: I am very happy with the physics program, for the most part. You can do undergraduate research projects, they have a room for physics majors, and they try to make sure you do what you need to succeed for your future career. They require you to do a capstone project, which is good for getting into graduate school. However, I have several concerns. The school limits the number of credits to graduate, so the physics department had to tailor the program to those requirements. You ideally could take more classes than the credit limit to be able to be a good future physicist. Also, the school may not be as well known as its sister school BYU Provo.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are very fun! I love to go and watch games!

Off-Campus Housing: I always feel safe on campus, and it's always clean!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The campus dining offers healthy options, which is great!

5 College Senior

Technology: The computers are constantly being updated and replaced as needed. At no point are there problems with slow computers unless you are in a lab whose internet went out, which almost NEVER happens. As far as lines to wait to use computers, there are so many labs that it is hard not to find one. Students get FREE windows with their student ID on their own private computers!

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is excited to be at school, and it shows. Everyone wants to be a friend, and I have never felt unsafe hanging out with strangers because there are lots of rules in the Honor Code.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are very good here. They have many options and the professors and staff are always ready to help you out if you ask.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The Labs are ok, but near test times such as finals they are a difficult place to get things done. The computers are very good and I have not had any problems other than ocational crowding.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The campus has good places to eat. But it is way better if you just make your own food in the house.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process at Brigham Young University-Idaho is very good. They are willing to work with you if you are willing to work with them.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: BYU-I computer labs are crowded a lot but it really helps you out especially if you don't have a printer at your apartment. Even though you have to pay to print papers off its very handy when you need to print essays and stuff.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There isn't a lot of bad stuff that happens. Its small and its mostly surrounded by students.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Though the church promotes tolerance, not acceptance of certain lifestyles, this often is interpreted as the need to mindlessly hate and shun all those with different views. There are many people willing to accept people and encourage them to be their best selves, though. Just hang with the right crowd of non-bigots and you'll be alright.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene is pretty non-existent on this campus. In the honor code it states that you are not allowed to have drugs or alcohol. Most of the students abide by the honor code so there is not a problem on campus. When there are problems with drugs or alcohol, the Honor Code office takes it very seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on this campus. Never once have I had a problem with safety.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process for receiving financial aid is very easy. I would recommend to complete your FAFSA early that way if there are any problems they are able to solve it early. I have had some (minor) issues with my financial aid, but when I brought them to the financial advisers attention they were able to fix it right away. Overall it is extremely easy to receive aid.

Campus Food: Crossroads, Freshens, Mackay Cafe, Garden View, MC Market, Etc. The food is very very expensive, like, if you are going to be eating at the school you had better have lots of cash. Meals at the main cafeteria, the Crossroads, are typically around the $5 margin, costing a student around $15 a day for each meal. The food is quite good, however, and has a wide variety of selections (at certain times of the day, anyways, because some of the sections close down, limiting consumers to maybe 3 choices). The other places are just little to go places with packed fruit, salads, or sandwiches to students' disposal. But, need I remind, it is quite expensive. But delicious, nonetheless. The MC Market, which is somewhat modeled after a gas station, has ridiculously high prices for low quantities of food. If you're going to go grocery shopping you are better off heading to Broulims which is the grocery store that is just a few blocks away.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Dorms – For the most part, pretty nice for the ladies. Women have plenty of room for themselves, a restroom, hallway closets, and have a living room, in all of the complexes aside from one the female dorms all have a kitchen. Each apartment also has its own vacuum, mop, broom, and dustpan, allowing ladies to leave some of those bigger things at home. Boys are allowed in the apartment so long as there is a total of three people present, it is after 12 pm and before 12 am, and they do not enter the girls' bedrooms. As for the guys, each male apartment is one room that fits two beds, two dressers, and two desks, as well as other little storage space. Each hallway has three toilets and three showers for the men in that hall to use. No girls are allowed in the halls EVER. Girls are only permitted in the lounge area.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There really isnt any drugs used on campus, we just dont use it there, and we know that drugs are harmful to our bodies so we try not to partake of them

4 College Junior

Scholarships: i havent had any problems with it yet, nice & easy

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are few places but it is mostly outdoors, like hiking mountains, snow skating, and so forth

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.
