4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: We are held to a very High Moral Standard at BYU-I. There a BYU-I honor code that all students must keep in order to continue your learning experience there. Most students are very honorable and respectful to that honor code!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Freshman Dorms are very reasonable and affordable. The rooms are roomy enough and access is very convenient to the classes and everything else!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Availability is definitely a challenge for most off-campus housing, and of course cost is a big concern. I do find that if you search diligently enough, you will find housing that suites not only a college students needs, but there budget as well. So, cost effective and all around convenience is available, you just have to find it by searching, asking locals, talking to realtors and browsing websites and housing magazines to find the perfect match!

Weather: I personally love the snow, and Rexburg gets a lot of it. Occasionally, there are people who don't know how to drive in the snow and cause problems for those of us who do, but overall the weather is great. Classes are hardly ever cancelled, so you don't have to worry about making the work up later. In the summer it is warm and sunny. There are always people playing sports and having fun. It's a great environment.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many off-campus dining options at Brigham Young University - Idaho. On main street alone, there are various fast food and sit down restaurants. There is always a good selection. If you like Subway, you are in luck because there are four subways in town. I think the majority of students make their own food in their apartments though. All the restaurants are good with their prices, but none of them have any great deals for students.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is not to bad. You need to make sure you have the pass for the correct parking lot. There is not a lot of parking room. Make sure to get to your classes early to be guaranteed a spot.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I go to BYU-Idaho and I am a horticulture major with emphasize in floral design. The classes are very hands on and are smaller in the amount of students per class. They are great for one on one learning/teaching with the teacher. The teachers know your name and will connect with you personally.
The professors have all had field experience and have done very well in their profession.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a large selection, but a lot of the housing is controlled by one company. You can find anything you want in an apartment.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are no in collegiate sports, but on campus rec, and competitive sports are so fun to get involved in.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They are not great at all, but they are cheap. No one is required to stay in them. I recommend right off campus personally.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a small town with great access to the Teton Mountains to the east with great outdoor recreation. It is quiet and safe. Definitely not a a party town or city, which is the way those like me like it.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Prayer before most classes is so neat! Devotional every Tuesday! Huge Social dance participation!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing here is so cheap compared to other schools and its easy to find nice apartments. The only problem is that you have to live in BYUI approved housing and the price deviation between apartments is only a couple hundred dollars.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is diverse in many ways but not really in religion or things associated with religion. There are many people from different backgrounds and ethnicity that its wonderful to learn from them. I think the school as a whole is very accepting of all people though the majority of the school is LDS.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This school has a remote location so there needs to me many fun opportunities for everyone to enjoy themselves. This campus is united and the social activities are so fun. It would be nice if they had organized sports teams though.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't a ton of places to dine within walking distance, but what there is is very good; especially Shake Out, and Fong's Chinese. The food at Shake Out is slightly overpriced, but very hard to beat taste wise. Taco Bell and Thor's Ice Cream are both in walking distance, and cheap. Thor's keeps its prices down though by only allowing you to pay with cash. I would definitely go to Kiwi Loco and Little Caesar's too. The really nice thing about Kiwi Loco's is that they deliver, so you can just order it from your home.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There really isn't much crime on campus, but I'm sure there is some theft. I personally feel very safe on campus. We've never had a break in, and if there's even a crime in the city that could potentially affect us, then they send out a school wide email to warn everyone. (This has only happened once.) The campus police are not very prevalent, they are there and such, but it's mostly for security and traffic violations. If you have anything you need, then it is not hard to find security. I truly feel extremely safe here, it's a wonderful environment, I highly recommend it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is great. There are a lot of options, both healthy and unhealthy. There is everything, Oriental, Italian, American, and Hispanic. I don't eat there often though, because most places have kitchens (all but the boy's Chapman Hall have kitchen's to my knowledge).

4 College Freshman

Technology: Computers are good and I think there's plenty of them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The oncampus dorms aren't the best thing, but they sere their purpose.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Brigham Young University Idaho has a fantastic campus life. It is very connected and there are so many clubs, sports, dances, and activities to attend. The library is great because there are different floors for different noise levels or types of study (1st floor - all environments, 2nd floor - quiet/personal study, 3rd floor - group study). There are also several places to eat and study in nearly every building. The people on campus are welcoming and kind too, which makes it a better atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Cross Roads is the place on campus where everyone goes to eat. It's pretty good, and there are a lot of options, but after awhile you don't always want to eat what they have. I personally prefer home cooked meals because they are cheaper, but for those who don't like to cook, the Cross Roads offers good options.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe and at home at the BYU-I campus. Everyone is friendly and nice,and I haven't heard of any crimes or unsafe events happening there. Obviously you should be weary of any place, but this place is great and is probably one of the safest schools you will ever go to.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I absolutely love it up here at BYU-I! It has a great atmosphere and teachers strive to get to know you on a personal level. Random people will stop and say hi or offer a kind compliment, I've even had random people help me with my groceries! Rexburg is the friendliest community I have ever visited.

5 College Freshman

Technology: There are plenty of computers for you to use on campus, and as long as you put some money on your I-card, you can print also. I'ts very helpful to have your own computer though because you need it in some classes and also if you want more time to do your homework you need one because the school library closes before curfew.

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.
