5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Life – There are so many opportunities that are continually growing on campus. These include major selection, extracurricular selection, social activities and business opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports and Athletic Opportunities – There are no professional or inter-school competition teams. The range of sport and athletic involvement is very broad though and the fitness building is very accommodating and extracurricular activities are popular.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining Hall and Meals – I find the dining halls very clean, open and inviting. The food services are easy to use with a wide variety. The quality of the food is satisfactory but taste could be improved.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: So Many Choices, but It's So Expensive! Rexburg offers a lot of really great options for off-campus housing. The only thing is the prices are high. However, you will get exactly what you pay for. For example, The Ivy is currently the newest housing for women and it is also one of the priciest pads in town, but it's also the NICEST apartments in town.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a Lot of Places – There are fast food restaurants, but no one wants to eat there a lot. There are wingers, applebees, and costa vida, but not that many other places to eat. Costa vida is a little on the expensive side but super good food to eat. Pizza Pie Cafe is awesome, it's an all you can eat pizza/salad/pasta buffet.

3 College Junior

Academics: Medical Assisting – Very easy major, not hard classes and you can complete your major in less than two years!

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: All of the students are well groomed and follow a strict honor code of conduct for the way they act and dress. People are generally very friendly and nice. It's a great place to make long-lasting friends

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I don't feel like there is a problem with lack of diversity. There are plenty of ethnic diversity at BYU-I.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small and Friendly – I like living in Rexburg, Idaho. I like the small town feel of the community. There aren't very many attractions or activities to do in Rexburg, but Idaho Falls is only a 25-30 minute drive and there's lots of fun activities to do there!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: One Area. The places for food are okay. The dining hall is in one building, but there are little shops in a few others.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: High Standards – If you want a school that upholds good christian standards BYUI is the place for you. I love that everyone is trying to be the best. The standards are high but the activities are still fun and people are still down to earth. There are always things to do if you just stay involved. An on campus bonus are the fitness classes that are offered at night for free, anything from Zumba, yoga to kickboxing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am happy to say there are many options for dining on campus. Even the main on campus cafeteria has a variety of food options to choose from. There are many cafe's in different buildings and vending machines all over. There is no reason to not go hungry. However, I wished the cafeteria would be open at night or have more of the smaller campuses open during the evening.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I was disappointed to find the only general public computers were those within the library. I would love to see more computers in other spots around campus, near the on campus dining area for example or maybe an on campus internet cafe. However, there are some computer labs with some majors. It would just be nice to have them more public throughout campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Although it is a little harder to change your major if you have already had a lot of credits, it is fairly easy if you have just gotten into college. There is some paperwork sometimes, but there are great counselors to help you through every step.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Aiding Everyone – I did not receive financial aid, however those I know have received it have said it is a good experience. BYU-I tries to make it as best experience as possible, making time for each student to make sure they understand the options and aid they will be receiving. They work with payment options, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Take a Look at Rexburg – Brigham Young University Idaho has a variety of dining options off-campus. There are many restaurants ranging from authentic to fast food. The costs are not unreasonable, and there are a lot of coupons handed out during the year to students that can be used at a lot of these restaurants. BYU-Idaho has a great discount opportunity for restaurants and places of entertainment. This is called the Starving Student Card. This card can be purchased for a reasonable amount of money, and has thousands of dollars in coupons and free stuff for almost every restaurant and store in Rexburg. This is great for college students who may not have a lot of money.

5 College Junior

Parking: It Is Good – people shouldn't drive to school unless they have to go directly to work anyway

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: most are in short walking distance to the school and every other place in town

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The one thing that BYU-I does not have is competitive sports teams. Instead, BYU-Idaho takes part in intermural sports teams. Every student is able to participate in any sports team if they desire. I personally like having intermural sports teams because everyone is able to get involved in extracurricular activities.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: People attending Brigham Young University-Idaho come from similar walks of life. Even though they come from all different backgrounds, the main percentage of students are white. Most students are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although most students are white, there are still different nationalities that are present.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety and Security on Campus – Life at Brightam Young University-Idaho is wonderful. BYU-I is a church school and all students are expected to live by the Honor Code. The Honor Code's strictness discourages students from drinking alcohol and using drugs. The Honor Code also includes integrity and honor. Because of the Honor Code, safety and security on campus is excellent. Campus crime is almost nonexistant because everyone trusts one another. I feel very safe on campus and that is why I love attending Brigham Young University-Idaho.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Dedicated Professors – BYUI is not a research school nor do we compete in competitive sports. Because of that, our teachers are more dedicated to our success. It also helps that as a smaller campus, classes usually get no bigger than 80 students. I've been in classes as small as 25, 15, and 5 people (depending on the topic).

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: High Standards – I have known of only two instances where drugs were found/used on campus. The students were kicked out of school. As a church school, we have high standards and a name to protect. Same story with alcohol.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Safe and Fun – We don't have a lot of bars in Rexburg since it's a small college town mostly populated by LDS people. We do have lazer tag, mini golf, bowling, movies, restaurants, school events like concerts, plays, and special performers. And there's always just hanging out at an apartment. There is a town curfew of midnight Saturday-Thursday, and 1:00 AM on Friday nights.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Living the Standard! BYU-Idaho is probably one of the most strict Universities as far as standards go. Alcohol consumption and sexual intercourse could lead to the removal from school. Don't do it. This is a religious private university and as such they will hold their students accountable to live up to the standards they said they would live up to.

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.
