4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small and Friendly – I like living in Rexburg, Idaho. I like the small town feel of the community. There aren't very many attractions or activities to do in Rexburg, but Idaho Falls is only a 25-30 minute drive and there's lots of fun activities to do there!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: One Area. The places for food are okay. The dining hall is in one building, but there are little shops in a few others.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: High Standards – If you want a school that upholds good christian standards BYUI is the place for you. I love that everyone is trying to be the best. The standards are high but the activities are still fun and people are still down to earth. There are always things to do if you just stay involved. An on campus bonus are the fitness classes that are offered at night for free, anything from Zumba, yoga to kickboxing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am happy to say there are many options for dining on campus. Even the main on campus cafeteria has a variety of food options to choose from. There are many cafe's in different buildings and vending machines all over. There is no reason to not go hungry. However, I wished the cafeteria would be open at night or have more of the smaller campuses open during the evening.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I was disappointed to find the only general public computers were those within the library. I would love to see more computers in other spots around campus, near the on campus dining area for example or maybe an on campus internet cafe. However, there are some computer labs with some majors. It would just be nice to have them more public throughout campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Although it is a little harder to change your major if you have already had a lot of credits, it is fairly easy if you have just gotten into college. There is some paperwork sometimes, but there are great counselors to help you through every step.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Aiding Everyone – I did not receive financial aid, however those I know have received it have said it is a good experience. BYU-I tries to make it as best experience as possible, making time for each student to make sure they understand the options and aid they will be receiving. They work with payment options, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Take a Look at Rexburg – Brigham Young University Idaho has a variety of dining options off-campus. There are many restaurants ranging from authentic to fast food. The costs are not unreasonable, and there are a lot of coupons handed out during the year to students that can be used at a lot of these restaurants. BYU-Idaho has a great discount opportunity for restaurants and places of entertainment. This is called the Starving Student Card. This card can be purchased for a reasonable amount of money, and has thousands of dollars in coupons and free stuff for almost every restaurant and store in Rexburg. This is great for college students who may not have a lot of money.

Parking: It Is Good – people shouldn't drive to school unless they have to go directly to work anyway

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: most are in short walking distance to the school and every other place in town

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The one thing that BYU-I does not have is competitive sports teams. Instead, BYU-Idaho takes part in intermural sports teams. Every student is able to participate in any sports team if they desire. I personally like having intermural sports teams because everyone is able to get involved in extracurricular activities.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: People attending Brigham Young University-Idaho come from similar walks of life. Even though they come from all different backgrounds, the main percentage of students are white. Most students are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although most students are white, there are still different nationalities that are present.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety and Security on Campus – Life at Brightam Young University-Idaho is wonderful. BYU-I is a church school and all students are expected to live by the Honor Code. The Honor Code's strictness discourages students from drinking alcohol and using drugs. The Honor Code also includes integrity and honor. Because of the Honor Code, safety and security on campus is excellent. Campus crime is almost nonexistant because everyone trusts one another. I feel very safe on campus and that is why I love attending Brigham Young University-Idaho.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: Dedicated Professors – BYUI is not a research school nor do we compete in competitive sports. Because of that, our teachers are more dedicated to our success. It also helps that as a smaller campus, classes usually get no bigger than 80 students. I've been in classes as small as 25, 15, and 5 people (depending on the topic).

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: High Standards – I have known of only two instances where drugs were found/used on campus. The students were kicked out of school. As a church school, we have high standards and a name to protect. Same story with alcohol.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Safe and Fun – We don't have a lot of bars in Rexburg since it's a small college town mostly populated by LDS people. We do have lazer tag, mini golf, bowling, movies, restaurants, school events like concerts, plays, and special performers. And there's always just hanging out at an apartment. There is a town curfew of midnight Saturday-Thursday, and 1:00 AM on Friday nights.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Living the Standard! BYU-Idaho is probably one of the most strict Universities as far as standards go. Alcohol consumption and sexual intercourse could lead to the removal from school. Don't do it. This is a religious private university and as such they will hold their students accountable to live up to the standards they said they would live up to.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: BYU-I's facilities are so very nice. Recently a very large auditorium was constructed it is large enough to fit the entire student body in it at once. An additional part of it was added with several basketball and volleyball courts. Around the top of it is a running track.
The other buildings are nice as well. Some of the older building can be confusing to get around but still nice.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg Rocks! Rexburg is such a great town! You feel so very safe here. I would let my wife walk around alone at night kind of safe! The community is very religious and you can feel that as you walk around. There are some very fun things to do but it takes creativity and a love for the outdoors. If you are the type that needs to go to a movie or need to be entertained they have a theater but not much else. It may not be the town for you. Shopping is pretty limited but there is a large mall in Idaho Falls that is only 30 minutes away. Any other fun thing you want is in Idaho Falls.

3 College Student

Party Scene: Night Life – Night life is different for every person. But I find that the best of times are a group of friends getting together and making inexpensive memories right in our own apartments.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: parking is different depending on where you park and what time of the day. for the most part it is very easy to find a spot. it is just during some of the prime hours that it is a little more difficult but still not horrible to find parking.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: there is no school teams, only intermediate sports are played here. no intercollegiate sports. the athletic facilities are great all in all. there is just a lack of school spirit towards sports, it isn't sports that unite the students it is other things.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The BYU-Idaho Center Is Amazing. the BYU-I center is great it is a huge conference center where the student go for discussions and devotionals. it also holds the basket ball courts and volley ball courts and an indoor tack it is very impressive. the library is great the students and faculty there are so helpful and do all they can to help you out. there are so many activities to choose from any day of the week there is so much going on. any thing from visiting the art gallery in the spori to talent shows to guitars unplugged.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Getting the Help I Needed – When I was applying for colleges, I filled out the BYUI financial application for grants and scholarships and heard within a couple of months if I had received any via email. They were the ones that offered me the most money because of my high school grades, so I choose to go with them for college.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Our Night Until Midnight – Our honor code policy that we signed when we were accepted, was that we understood that curfew is at midnight, except for Fridays which is 1 AM. We like to hang out at each other apartments to watch movies, play games or just chat. Another thing that is popular to do is to go to Idaho Falls (30 minutes away) and go shopping, out to eat or to a movie. The sand dunes are really close by where people go swimming or do bom fires there.

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.
