5 College Sophomore

Weather: The summers area very nice. It never gets really hot, but it stays plesent. Every now and then we get a good thunder storm, and the nights are usually clear. The winters are very cold though, and it often ices over. Because it happens so often, school rarely gets canceled.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a wonderful area. It is a place that is devoted to studying where there are not a lot of distractions to keep you from your work. The people are nice and excepting of us, and it is easy to make friends there. There isn't a whole lot there to be honest, but if you can get ride to Idaho Falls, they have stuff out there.

2 College Junior

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity here. Most are white if you are looking for a school with a lot of diversity yet again Brigham Young University Idaho is not for you.

Party Scene: There isn't a lot of things to do in Rexburg. There is a movie theater, laser tag, and they have the dunes and ice caves. There are not any clubs but the school does put on dances if that's what your into. Most of the kids stay at home and watch movies or go on dates.

1 College Junior

Weather: If you get on fall/spring track count your blessings. Winter can be a nightmare. It goes below zero a lot here. Its icy so if your klutzy stay away. The wind is also horrible so if you cant take intense weather conditions BYU-I is not the school for you. It takes a special kind of person to go here. Other than winter semester the weather is fairly nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an art major with an emphasis in Graphic Design. Studying at BYUI is a great opportunity they have teachers who are part of the art department who are highly qualified in their areas of art that they teach in. The only down fall that I have found with their curriculum is the fact that they require all art students to take these two online art courses. Which i understand that the university just doesn't have enough space for all the art courses to bee taught on campus. But this has made it difficult for few students because of the way that they learn the best is not accommodated for while taking these online courses

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am quite happy as a Psychology major. I have enjoyed the classes and really loved the professors. They don't just sit there and reuse old power points. They want to know if you have questions. Assignments are there to actually help you learn, not just busy work. One of my career goals is to be a Marriage and Family Therapist and many of the professors have experience in that field. I don't have too many concerns about finding a job just about finding one in Texas where I am originally from. I know that God will help me with my goals if I am faithful to Him.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I went to BYUI because of liking a girl that I met on my mission. Little did I know that the opportunities for on-campus jobs were plenteous. The professors really care about the students. The tuition is attractive. The students are really nice. The curriculum is one of kind in the US because no other school melds faith and reason quite like BYUI. The people that work in registration department know their stuff and answer questions real good.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Psychology major and really enjoy the classes I have taken and am enrolled in so far. I like that the professors are knowledgeable and have great senses of humor. The fellow students I am with could use some work with being more invested in the class, but I do meet a couple students that really know their stuff. It is easy to get to know the professors personally and have them know you at least by face recognition. They are flexible with office hours and don't mind explaining things further for you.

Off-Campus Dining: Really if you want to save money I would suggest that you go to Broulim's and buy food that you can prepare. Eating out is expensive and if you are looking for financial aid you probably need to be a bit more conservative in spending your money. I will say that there are two Taco Bus restaurants that are really inexpensive by Wal*Mart and also by the round about close to Tuscany apartments. I enjoy Costa Vida but that is one of those places that you go to to get the student deals they have for a date night.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As I have attended this university the experience has been pretty smooth. We receive emails about the needs based scholarship application that will let you get money based on your needs. If isn't too long to fill out and is not that difficult. The only hassle was with filling out the FASFA because we had to drive to Idaho Falls and get a print out from the IRS. The BYUI financial aid website is easy to navigate and that is how I found this site actually. I have been pretty blessed by the aid that I have received so far.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There are a lot of computers and computer labs around campus and I have no complaints about the internet quality here. with all the printers around campus and the cheap cost of printing I can not complain.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Since BYU-Idaho is a LDS school the students here generally believe that we should not use drugs so the drug safety is more of a moral belief than a school enforced program.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms here at BYU-Idaho are pretty nice and close to every building on building on campus. they have very little room to live though and they are in worse shape than the off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not very many places to eat here but if you go down the road about 30 miles there are many great places to eat. The prices for the food here in Rexburg are very competitive and we have some really great food (mostly mexican and BBQ).

5 College Freshman

Technology: They have macs and pcs and tons of computers. Getting the printing setup on your computer may be a hassle at first, but it comes in handy.

4 College Freshman

Majors: There is a lot of variety in the majors offered here. The classes are relevant and useful. As far as admissions go, seminary attendance is important, as well as a worthiness to attend a church school. They want to be able to admit as many students as possible because it has such an amazing atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety in the restaurants here in Rexburg. You've got places like Little Caesar's and Taco Bell to Apple Bee's. DAiry Queen is probably my favorite place to go. It seems as though they always have a deal going on. Sammy's is a great place too. They have burgers and shakes and at least once a week they have a music artist there doing a gig. There are lots of places to eat and have fun at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing at BYU-I is great. Things that are needed are available and it reflects in the price you pay. There are clean chcks every week which is nice, because it makes it so that cleaning has to be done weekly. Its also a really nice policy if you have messy roomates. There are always activities going on that we are able to participate in, and they usually take place on campus, which isn't far away.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winter months are really snowy and cold and being outside is no fun at all, unless the sun is out. However, spring through fall is great. It doesn't get really hot, so being outside is enjoyable. If you have a car, driving during the winter can be a bit scary, so remember to be cautious.

3 College Freshman

Parking: On campus parking can be difficult to get, so arriving early is helpful. Permits cost between $10 and $70, depending where you get it for. There are three free parking lots on campus that are very nice, and are usually never full.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining on campus is called the Crossroads. It was built just a few years ago and has a variety of different food places that you can go and get food from. There is a variety of different foods such as pizza, subs, chinese, meat, etc. There are also foods that you can grab if you're in a hurry such as pre-wrapped sandwiches and salads. The prices aren't bad and I think that the food tastes pretty good-especially for campus dining.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: BYU-Idaho has a pretty good amount of computers and I can usually find one if I need. However at certain points during the day they are a lot more crowded and it is a lot harder to find one. The school advises students to provide their own computers because most of the homework is online and it's really inconvinent to have to go to campus all of the time. On campus the computers usually have really good network reliability and speed. If you bring your own computer onto campus the same applies for most places. In a few places it's harder to connect but overall the network reliability and speed work really well. Campus has printers all over that you can print from for just a few cents a page. I have gone mulitple semesters without owning a printer and I have done just fine.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: At BYU-Idaho there is always something to do. Any night of the week you can find an activity to attend. You can art exhibits, musems, concerts, plays, sports, outdoor activites, etc. Campus is very nice and there are a variety of hang out places. One of the most popular is the Crossroads which is the food court that was remodeled a few years ago. It has a lot of seating and is very open and inviting to students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My school is different than many other schools in the fact that it has something called the Honor Code. This code is something that all students sign before they attend and agree to follow. Although at times some students may complain about it, it really makes the campus a better place to attend. Everyone is respectful and professional in language, dress, activities, etc. Because of this I love attending here. BYU-Idaho also has really good academic programs and requires all of its students to complete an intership before they graduate. Because of this students are more prepared to enter the work force.

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.
