College Junior

Party Scene: Where the Good Kids Go – I can give a grade for those who expect to use their time at college getting wasted on drugs, alcohol or non-committal sex. BYU-I would recieve an F.
If you want good, clean fun, then the atmosphere in Rexburg is great. Its a small town, but there are plenty of cool activities, bands, concerts, plays to see both on campus and in the community. In that point, I give an A.
Its a pass or fail, depending on what YOU want.

Campus Quality: This campus offers a variety of facilities that are kept very clean. There are a lot of new buildings that have been built over the recent years. The library is a good size for this university, there is a huge auditorium that seats 15,000 people, a gym full of basketball courts/track/swimming pool/etc.., and a nice cafeteria with different kinds of food.
There is a testing center that is provided for all the students to take their tests according to the professor's instructions and dates. Each classroom has a projector and computer for the professors to teach more efficiently. Computer labs are also provided around campus. There are also great places outside for students to study.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: One of the Safest – This school has high standards that the students know about before they come in. There is an honor code that every student signs and not participating or being involved with drugs is part of it. The apartments are not allowed to have drugs of any kind in them either.

2 College Senior

Parking: Very Little, and Note Cheap – There is not a lot of parking, and the passes are not cheap either. The only free parking is on the opposite side of campus from a lot of the classes. Even if you have a parking pass it is hard to find a place to park.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Close and Much More Room – There are a lot of options for off campus housing close to campus for single students. There is a large price range to choose from. Most places are within a 20 minute walking distance from the school.

4 College Senior

Administration: Strict Credit Limit – Because the school gets funding to allow students to have much lower tuition, the school is very strict about the school's credit limit of 140 credits. They will let you go over that. but not by much.

5 College Senior

Local Area: Safe and Fun – Rexburg and BYU-Idaho is a great place to be. Lots to do and very very safe. People are kind and share similar values.

4 College Senior

Academics: Great Opportunities and Hands on Work – The professors at my school don't do research which makes them available to answer questions when they are in their office. Being a Mechanical Engineering student, I went in to one of my professor's office after class and probably spent 5 hours on separate occasions trying to understand dynamics. He was more than willing to help. There are also a lot of projects which are hands on and help to reinforce the principles taught.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Almost Non-Existant – If there is any of that going on at my school I never see it. It has to do with the nature of the school and the rules which have been set. If people do that kind of stuff and caught, they are kicked out of the school.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Clean Atmosphere – I think that what sets our school apart from others is the atmosphere around campus. There are no bars or anything like that, and people sign an agreement saying that they will abstain from those activities while here. It makes the environment a lot less distracting and easier to complete schoolwork. There is also a 2 - 1 female to male ratio which is really good for the dating scene.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Clean Campus, Small Town – The facilities are great. They have a large gym with machines and free weights were people can workout, a pool to swim or dive in, clubs for dancing, jiu-jitsu, wrestling, etc. It has a full sized gym for basketball, racquetball courts and more. It is located in a small town though, so people end up having to invent things to do.

4 College Senior

Majors: Loved My Internship – I didn't get paid hourly, but I did get a surprise stipend at the end. I really loved the people I worked with and the hours as well. I think I did more interviewing and research than I did writing, but I enjoyed it just the same.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Good Food, Could Have Better Prices – I really enjoy the food at the Crossroads, but I'm not really satisfied with the pricing. I like that there are cafes across campus so you don't always have to go to the Crossroads. Still, better prices would make me want to eat there more often.

Majors: Almost Perfect – I really love the learning opportunities I've had with my program. I like that I've been able to emphasize in Creative Writing, and I've really learned a lot. I do wish I'd be able to take a few more creative writing classes, but that's more wishful thinking than dissatisfaction. It would also be nice if there were better opportunities for internships in publishing.

4 College Senior

Majors: I've Really Enjoyed What I've Learned – There have been some amazing classes offered with my program. I really like that I was able to emphasize in Creative Writing. It would have been nice if more of my concurrent enrollment credits were able to transfer, but it looks like a new degree program is being implemented that will remedy that. All in all, I've loved what I've been able to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting in – Getting into my program of human biology was pretty easy granted i am still in the beginning stages of earning my degree. I have pretty much just signed up for the classes in my field of study and had little difficulty

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I feel that there is a good diversity of majors to choose from and the professors are very helpful and knowledgable in their field of knowledge.

5 College Senior

Technology: They have pcs, and macs, and they are all almost new and very upkept.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Its Nice and Respectable – They take care of all your needs and make sure that everything is kept extremely clean and nice. They really take care of the tenants.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small Town Life – Rexburg is a small town, but the city and University does the best they can to provide different activities for students and locals to do. The area is surrounded by mountains, waterfalls and many other outdoor activities to do. It's important to have a car, though, or at least a roommate or friend who does otherwise life can get dull pretty quickly.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Making Progress – They have computer labs across the campus, but I think they need a few more. They recently set up a program where you can send your paper to any printer on campus which makes it easy if you're in one building but have class at another. You can go to that building and print off your paper. Very convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very Safe – Crime rate at BYU-Idaho is very low. It's rare when you hear about a robbery or some other crime.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are no clubs or bars here since this is a Mormon town. There are things to do that do not involve drinking though. There are movie theaters, bowling alleys, and more.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It Is Spectacular – I love it here. It has such a great atmosphere. The campus is so pretty and clean, although the construction is annoying. But hey, you have to make improvements somehow. I love that the Professors really care about you. And the staff at in the Cafeteria are usually really nice.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Few and Semi-Wanted – There are only a few places to eat on campus. It would be great if there were more choices. It is nice that they have started putting little Cafe's or carts in all of the buildings now.

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.
