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.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Very Good – The intramural program at BYU-Idaho is unmatched. Its run by students for the students. Everyone is included and can become very competitive but still fun.

4 College Senior

Local Area: Friendly Town – The town is small but friendly towards college students.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Not Very Diverse – Not very diverse, most people are white and LDS. Students have similar values act very similar.

Diversity: There are many people from all over at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Yes, most people one would run into are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but that is because it is a privately owned LDS institution. But, that doesn't mean that the school doesn't allow nonmembers in the school. Actually, nonmembers are more than welcome at the school, they just have to promise to abide by the same rules as everyone else. Aside that, there are people from many different ethnicities and being in a diverse school helps you form friendships you may not have originally back home.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors at BYU-I are absolutely wonderful! There is a low teacher to student ratio and it is so great being in a college class where the teacher actually knows your name. The professors truly care about their students and want to get to know them. Most, if not all teachers, are available and willing to help students outside of class. The teachers want their students to succeed. The curriculum in most classes is set out at the beginning. For instance, if a teacher has attendance as part of the grade in their class, then you are expected to be in class and receive the grade when they take roll. There are great study options available. There is a library in the middle of campus that has many study areas. Each floor has computers and printers available. The first floor has a lot of resources and you can find a quiet spot to study or one where you can still hear some talking. The second floor is absolutely no talking which is great spot to study if you do not like background noise. The third floor is the talking floor where it is a great place to meet groups for study sessions. Overall, BYU-I has wonderful academics offered. I truly am grateful for the professors and the curriculum offered there.

Local Area: Brigham Young University Idaho – Living in Rexburg, Idaho is a blast. Some people may not want to live there because they think the anywhere in Idaho is farm town. Well I have news for you-I have never, nor will I ever, live on a farm. There isn't some amazing attraction that one can find many people racing to see in Rexburg. Rexburg is just a small town where many college kids live and where one can find people raising their families. It is a wonderful town filled with nice people and just a great atmosphere to be around.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are opportunities to go dancing on campus, go to shows, and many other activities. the surrounding town does close down early so there aren't many late night options. We also have a curfew system of 12am for weekdays and 1am on weekends.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: BYU-I Guys and Girls – BYU-I fosters an honor code system, which helps create the integrity and honesty of it's students. There are many dating opportunities and a great variety of guys and girls to choose from from across the U.S. and even other countries.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The facilities at BYU-I are fair. They are quite beautiful, it is very well taken care of, very clean, they are always making new renovations and adding more to expand the campus the library needed improving and is now improving. Very nice campus. BYU-I just acquired a new BIG auditorium and new work out center and testing center, including a new cafeteria with many places for study.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Because this is an LDS school, there is no alcohol or substance abuse. I think this is fantastic, and I love life on campus. I don't have to deal with high or drunk friends, and I don't ever have to worry about people questioning my standards. In the evenings, there is tons to do. BYU-Idaho has one of the largest intramural sports programs, and they constantly have fun cultural events. Furthermore, at church we are broken off into what we call FHE groups. These often become your best friends, and you hang out all of the time.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: On Campus – As single students, we must live in approved housing. The college sets pretty high standards for this, so most facilities stay pretty nice. Some of them are older, but even these are kept up pretty well. The newer housing coming in (there is a lot) is top of the line.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Crossroads – I don't actually eat on campus very often. When I do, however, I go to the crossroads. I love the facility. It is quite nice, and there is a very good selection of food, and it is all very tasty. The cleanliness gets an A plus, and so does the speed of service. My only objection is the prices. They are not too unreasonable, but they are more than I can afford.

4 College Student

Weather: BYU-I is in Rexburg Idaho and here in Idaho we can have great summer weather but we also can have some pretty cold winters here. When it snows i always see students working on clearing the sidewalks on campus to make sure that they are clear and not icey. The weather really doesn't affect my campus experience at all.

4 College Student

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – We don't drink here at BYU-I. If there is drinking or drugs going on it's not known.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: The Pines – The managers are great and so nice. The rooms are clean and the appartments have great appliances.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small Town Feel – If you like a smaller town this is the place for you. It's very safe here and everyone, for the most part anyway, is really nice to everyone else. There are many things you can do outside such as snowboarding, hiking, swimming, and many other outdoor activities. Plus, Yellowstone is not to far away!

1 College Sophomore

Administration: The Honor Code is pretty strict, but my best advice is to just follow it and you'll be so much happier. You dont need to get drunk/high and sleep around to have a good time.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Best Looking Award – BYU Idaho has some of the best looking people. There is a pretty good diversity of people. Boys are clean cut and shaven, girls are modest and cute. There are a lot of country boys and cowboys from the area, but there are also city boys who make it fun. Everyone is incredibly friendly and everyone is always up for a good time.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: They have been doing a great job at adding and remodeling the campus at BYU-I! The MC is where we have the bookstore, a bowling alley, Crossroads Cafe (basically our cafeteria), a market, classrooms, ballrooms, theaters, and the Testing Center. They added a skywalk that connects the top story to the library, which really helps in the winter! The library is great! There are 3 floors, and somehow I always seem to get lost, it feels so big. The I-center is the newest addition and it is AMAZING. We have Devotionals there every Tuesday, Graduation, and big concerts and events are held there. There is even an indoor track and plenty of basketball courts inside! It's huge and beautiful. The on-campus gym is good too, and always a fun place to be. Rexburg may be a small town, but there is always something fun to do on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Clean, Safe Fun – There is usually a lot going on in Rexburg and BYU-I in the evenings with shows and concerts. There are dances at least twice a week which are pretty fun. Students can get involved in sports regardless of their skill level. Everything is relatively cheap.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Could Be Better but Pretty Good – There are computer labs in the most traversed buildings around campus with a couple of printers which is super nice. Most students have a laptop and you can get WIFI through the school with your user name and password. If you don't have a laptop you will be okay though.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Lots of Outdoors-Y Stuff to Do – No matter what the season there are many attractions in and around Rexburg to do outdoors including ski resorts, Yellowstone National Park, and many places to swim. Rexburg is a little town with not a whole bunch to places to shop but Idaho Falls is close. Rexburg is pretty much a college town.

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.
