4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Not Your Average Joe – The students on campus are not normal as you would think at any other campus. We have a honor code that we signed and agreed upon before coming to school which includes; no flip flops, no shorts/capri's, skirts can be worn (must be to the kneee) and no tank tops. We have pride in our standards and we are very easy going and willing to help one another out. The social life off campus is so much fun! There is always an activity going on so there are plenty of opportunities to meet other people.

1 College Senior

Administration: Strictness on Campus – There isnt enough room in this box. words could not explain the tyrannical rule that BYU idaho has on campus plan on having no freedom to think or make your own decisions.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – there isn't a drug scene. only among a couple of the freshman who are breaking the honor code other than that no such thing.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've never lived in the dorms on campus, But I would have rather died than living in a normal complex. There is no kitchen and its the size of a closet

3 College Senior

Athletics: The school doesn't have a collegiate sports program. It does, however, offer an extensive intramural sports program, so you can still play virtually any sport you want in a semi competitive atmosphere.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: virtually all of the housing is off-campus. There are a lot of different complexes and they are all very close to campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Dining Hall – the main dining hall is pretty good, but kind of expensive. I only eat there when I absolutely have to. There are a couple other places around campus, but they are small and always offer the same thing.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Have Your Own Car (Or Borrow a Friend's) – There are no bus routes, so the only way to really get places without your own car or a friend with a car is to take the Salt Lake Express, which is really only affordable at the end/beginning of the semester.

4 College Junior

Administration: Strict, but for Good Reason – All students sign the Student Honor Code before coming to the university. It is a private university and the school has very high standards for its students, to help them avoid bad situations and to help them focus on studies. Alcohol and drug use are prohibited on- and off- campus for all students. There is also a dress code for students to keep while on campus, though it is not as strictly enforced as it should be to respect the students who actually care about it.

4 College Student

Technology: Variety and Availability – It's no big deal if you don't own a laptop; you can just go to the library. There are even iMacs available for student use, if those are the type of program preferred. The labs are usually either half-full or not at all, except around midterms and finals sometimes.

4 College Student

Academics: Academic and Spiritual Strength – I came to Brigham Young University-Idaho because it has a weekly spiritual devotional, the campus is beautiful and closer to home, and most of my professors I have are wonderful. They will get to know each student personally, treating every one as a friend, not necessarily a pupil. The devotionals are amazing as well; I usually hear what I need to at the time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Student Population VS Townie Population – By just looking at the population and the demographics of the area, the students outnumber the other residents. So if you are active at all then you can find somebody to do something with, "of course you can't do it later than midnight, due to collegiate rules" but, there is usually something to do as long as you are an outdoorsy person.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Besides the occasional fast food place, there really aren't any fast food places in town, we have to travel to a different city to eat out at any place of consequence.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus facilities at BYU-I are good, however they are not great. The athletic center has just been redone and that was a great improvement over what it was before, however it is still lacking in some of the exercise area's that are more specific. The fact that the school is always remodeling something is frustrating. But what they have remodeled is good, if it is hard to get to because of the fact that they remodel something else in the way.

4 College Junior

Academics: Sociology at BYUI has great societies and programs that help you get to where you need to. The workload is focussed on a research paper that will be done by the time you graduate so if needed to use for graduate school, then you have it ready.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Fast Food $5
American $10
Country Cookin $10
Southwest Grill $10
Subs and Sandwhichs $7

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: You Have to Look to Find It – It's hard to find anything like drugs and alcohol on campus and in the city. No one wants that kind of environment, and those that do keep to themselves.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All Intramurals – most of the sports are lead by student. in each sport there are a lot of teams that all compete against other student teams. we have everything from football to swimming and the facilities to go with it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg's Best – If you're looking for a place to hang out and get great food, go to Sammy's. If you want a lot of food for your money go to Teriyaki Express or the Pizza Pie Cafe, they wont let you down. My personal Favorite place on a cold day is the Cocoa Bean, a small shop that's sure to warm you up.

3 College Student

Majors: Well Brigham Young University-Idaho a large variety of different majors, and the education system is very student focused. The classes are generally smaller and allow the student and the professor to gain a level of trust and appreciation. Also there is a very well organized student help center for various fields such as Math and English. The program helps you to learn and to grow but doesn't do your work for you and helps you to learn on your own of how you can improve.

2 College Student

Parking: Parking on campus is very difficult due to smaller sized parking lots. To help bring the number down of vehicles in the parking lots the school sells permits for the semester and gives tickets of roughly 10 dollars to any non permitted vehicle in the parking areas,(including side streets around campus). However the need for a car isn't that great for on campus activities. A bike is much more useful. The campus isn't very big in overall size and any building is within 5 to 7 minutes on your bike.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg Dining! Restaurants in Rexburg aren't your biggest option. You have your normal fast food restaurants as well as some very good college style restaurants such as pizza parlors, foreign cuisine, etc. And if you want even more diversity Idaho Falls is within 30 minutes where there are many more options.

4 College Junior

Majors: Amazing Mathematics Program – In the mathematics program here at BYU-Idaho, the professors are amazing. They bend over backwards much of the time to help their students feel capable and responsible for their own learning. However, it is (as any mathematics program is) very challenging and it is not an easy program.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: What Dorms They Have Are Good – There are only so many dorms (7 complexes total that I know of) on campus, but the cooking dorms they have are worth the freshman experience and fairly cheap as well.
The options for student housing off campus is extremely limited as far as married student housing goes, but there are some reasonably priced single housing close to campus with enough amenities for someone to live by.

2 College Junior

Technology: Few computers on campus have the software needed to complete homework for many classes on campus. Also, the computer labs in many of the buildings are taken up by classes much of the time during the day. The wi-fi is fairly reliable and fast if you have your own computer, but it is annoying to try and print things on campus because in the library it is nearly impossible to find a computer to print from during busy times of the day.

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.
