4 College Sophomore

Majors: In attending Brigham Young University in Idaho I have come to see the great opportunities their English program offers. There is an English Study Abroad program that takes you to England and the Emerald Isles to gain a wider knowledge of the authors we study. This is a program I look forward to partaking in and experiencing what the department has to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Brigham Young University Idaho has a very capable English program. The classes give students the necessary abilities to succeed while also challenging them to become life long learners. So far I've taken 4 of the English classes offered and each has definitely helped me to grow as a student and expand my learning horizons. The English department also offers a wide variety of programs to assist the students in transferring the skills they learn in the classroom to real life. Such as an English study abroad program which is one I hope to one day take part in.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They have a few scholarships here that everyone can apply for such as the Heber J. Grant scholarship. I applied for that one last year and got about $200. It wasn't a whole lot but it was still nice not to have to worry about $200. There is definitely more money granted to those who are returned missionaries. There's also several offices here on campus that you can go to speak to people about your financial situation and they are always more than willing to help.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Many people I've met here at BYU-Idaho are going into agriculture or business or teaching. I'm an English major with an emphasis in Creative Writing and plan to be an author someday and that's definitely in the minority here. The English classes here are wonderful. The teachers really work to make sure you're getting the most out of the class. The workload is quite a bit since after all, it is English. I have to read and write for a majority of my classes but I don't really mind. For the most part, the assignments are fun and enjoyable.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Since this is a smaller school compared to most universities, the classes are a fairly decent size. The Foundation classes tend to be a bit larger than the classes you take specifically for your major. The professors here are fantastic! All the ones I've had are great at keeping in touch and letting the class know what's going on. If I haven't been to class for a while due to illness or family issues or whatnot, my professors will check up on me to see how I'm doing. It is vital, however, to let your professors know what's going on. If you don't, they'll just assume you've been skipping classes and they won't have much sympathy for that.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The main dining hall is the MC Crossroads. There's such a variety of foods there. There's different "areas" that have food from different places in the world. For example, there's an Asian spot and an All-American Burger spot just to name a few. The prices are fairly inexpensive which is nice if you just want a quick meal. There's also the MC Market where you can buy small snacks or a decent lunch for a good price. With the MC Market, though, you always have to watch what you get. Everything is cheap for the most part but if you get several cheap items, it really adds up.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Since this is an LDS school, drugs and alcohol are not allowed on this campus. There have been a few instances when students have been caught with drugs and they are sent home immediately. We have a fairly strict Honor Code at BYU-Idaho that doesn't allow much fooling around. It's such a relief not to deal with the drug and alcohol scene as much as other schools. It feels safe here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is really good. There is a wide variety of choices that you can eat from. The prices are good and is easily available for everyone. The dining hall in the MC building is great and huge!

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Everyone is extremely friendly. The campus is clean and is a great environment where I like to be. There is always something to do whether on campus or around Rexburg. There isn't much shopping to do in Rexburg but Idaho Falls is near by and there are many places to go there.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are some restaurants to go to but there isn't much variety

5 College Student

Health & Safety: There is always a safety and security agent around and emergency stations placed around campus. I feel 100% safe here.

4 College Student

Local Area: Rexburg is an adorable little small town. And almost everything is within walking distance of the BYU-I campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Rexburg has great housing. All of the apt complexes are pretty new and taken care of by the previous residents.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't very many options for eating out and the restaurants all close pretty early. Everything in Rexburg closes early.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: As an LDS college there is no problem with drugs on campus. Although there is a slight problem off campus, however at any college and highschool you will get this problem to some degree.

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Then parking on the BYU-I campus is a horrendous mess. Permits are sold at a reasonable price but are then oversold. This makes it impossible to find a spot if you get to campus latter than 7 am.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Great facilities for students all of which are free. State of the art athletic and fitness facilities along with an incredible library.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The schools intramurals and competitive sports programs allow everyone to play and participate in basically anything which they want. It allows them to become a better more rounded person.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love the campus in Rexburg. There are a few big grass sections that are perfect for those days you want to study outside. The Hart Athletic Building is very well furnished with excersize equiptment. They have a lot of clean fun activities you can participate in, like dances, weekly classic movie night in the crossroads, and things like that.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everybody at BYU-Idaho is extremely nice. Sometimes, it's even scary! The guys are for the most part very kind and respectful. The type of guys range from the very smart studious nerdy type to the jock type. There are a lot of country boys and girls, because it IS Idaho.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: BYU-I is EXTREMELY safe. The city of Rexburg in general rarely has crimes. I read a report for last year that showed how minimal crimes actually happen in the town, and seriously, it's practically zero. I am NEVER worried walking alone on campus, in fact I would say I feel safer on campus than even walking around the town.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: Because this is a church school, a lot of the student body comes from similar backgrounds. I did meet a few people from other ethnicities and from out of the country. My neighboor was from India. Overall, there isn't a LOT of diversity, but you can still meet people of different types.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: There are actually seasons here. While this may have others shaking their heads, it makes me happy to be in a place where I can learn how to adapt to different climates and things. I learn more about being a human being.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My first semester at BYU-I I lived in the dorms. They were alright. Perfect for walking to classes, the cost was a little over $900, and the rooms are decent sizes. However the social aspect was not that good. My second semester I moved into one of the apartment complexes and I loved them! The social atmosphere was great and they are not very far from campus. I definitely suggest living at the Ivy or the Willows for girls. Boys, I would say Navoo housing is the best. Cost for apartments is between $1,000-$1400.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are many guidelines that we must follow at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Very strict dress codes, Family Home Evening attendance, and many other policies that we have to live by there. I personally hate how strict they are, especially with curfew and the dress codes. I want to be able to make those decisions on my own like an adult should. They almost make me feel like I'm back in high school. However, the policies really do help the students create a great atmosphere there. I can see why they have them, I just wish it wasn't as strict as it is 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.
