Campus Food: Great Dining Options – The crossroads, its our own mall cafeteria right on campus. The crossroads has much to offer, from different varieties of food choices to stage live performances. Actually aside from the big crossroads, there are a total of 5 other cafeteria's in campus buildings that offer great snack selections or the in-between-class meals. This however doesn't exclude the fact that there are vending machines all over campus that satisfy our snackful needs. Outside campus there's a great amount of dinning sites that you can enjoy. There are fast food joints, small dinners, frozen dessert stores,exclusive date restaurants and the pick up and go pizza spots. All great contributions and choices available for the nearly-broke college student.

Campus Quality: Student Life – The student life here on campus is never dull. There are many events and opportunities to meet new people and have fun. The school offers many things; including diverse dances all throughout the week, there are musical recitals programed each weekend for students and teachers, the environment at the crossroads (cafeteria) allows for comfortable interaction among students that permits them to study, eat and most importantly have social dates. The school has a full agenda of different and fun ways in which students can embrace their education and their social lives.

Scholarships: Easy as Pie – For me the financial aid process was very easy aside from occasionally long lines at the office. most of the time its a straight forward process of fill out your FAFSA, make appointment with a counseler. accept whatever financial assistance is available which seems to consist of atleast 1 grant and ones choice of student loans. pay the schools debts and transfer the rest to the bank.
the only difficulty is if questions or complications arise that are out or the normal process of applying for financial aid such as a student falling below the fulltime student requirement.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Not a Macho School – The athletics department at BYUI unlike its sister school in Provo Utah is very low when it comes to athletics. there is virtually no games or events with other schools to be found on Campus. however BYUI doesnt deprive its students of the necessities. Students have full access to both of its large Gymnasiums and allows students to create multiple sports teams within the university for various athletic activities. such activities are also not only encouraged but frequently allow for new sports and events to be added showing the Universities potential to grow and be flexible in this area

Diversity: Just How Diverse? Brigham Young University Idaho considers itself a diverse school, with good reason. the majority of the students are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. so students come from a variety of locales and racial backgrounds even spanning the globe. however even though non-members are welcome to join. social diversity among students with different beliefs and different thinking is not so diverse. This can put a lot of pressure on students not familiar with LDS knowledge.
Although not as diverse as other schools may be considered BYUI takes the effort to reach out and create an environment where diversity can grow such as holding its students to high standards of selflessness, offering large amounts of courses in social, ethnic and foreign language courses. and encouraging students from around the globe to attend and be financially assisted where possible.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm only aware of one off-campus housing unit. It is very convenient with only a 3-5 minute walk to campus. The landlords were considerate and took care of everything spectacularly. It was expensive but for how spacious it was it was an acceptable price. Parking spots were available for each girl.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The system at BYU-I is kind of complex, so it's difficult to navigate the website to register and find financial aid.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys here come from all over, and you'll find any type of guy you could imagine. The girls are gorgeous, and come from all over the country. The ratio of girls to guys doesn't hurt either, since there's an average of 5:1, so there's lots of great options for the guys here.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Totally Safe – BYU-Idaho has a great environment. There's no worries about danger or any sort of hazards on campus. Pranks and stuff are pretty uncommon, so it's a great place to be.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: BYU-Idaho offers interns with the best and most well-known companies out there. BYU-Idaho maintains this relationship due to their alumni being recognized as honest with all their daily dealings, and being hard workers. BYU-Idaho offers internships with Disney, for art, business, drama, whichever the major where you live in the Disney hotel for free, work, get paid, free food, and get to experience the fun of Disneyland or DisneyWorld while staying for around 3 months.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: All students going to BYU-Idaho hear chilling tells about the weather pre-arrival. I come from Bakersfield, California where the lowest it gets is in the 30's. Rexburg got down to -4 while I was there, which honestly isn't that bad, it is very dry wheather and you will shock anyone you touch due to the carpets which can be fun. However, the weather isn't too bad if you're dressed for the snow unless the wind blows, when the wind picks up it goes straight through you and goes to straight to the bone. Other than that, it's bearable.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Never have I been exposed to an environment where I was cared so much for besides my own home. BYU-Idaho offers a staff who genuinely cares about the status of their students. Classroom sizes vary, however, are mostly in the 30-40 students range allowing the professors to establish a personal bond with their students. It is this personal relationship that has created the perfect learning environment where no questions or concerns are left unanswered. BYU-Idaho hires professors with established careers, the at home feel with the expertise from a professional who worked at the top company of whichever profession gave me the opportunity to learn more about my major than any online review or job fair in town. BYU-Idaho may get flack for being BYU's younger brother, but it is catching up, if not at the same level.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The Atmosphere at BYU-I – This a religious private school. The atmosphere at this campus is amazing. There's no comparison to any other college. I love this school. There's plenty of activities on-campus and off-campus. I totally love the honor code and devotional every tuesday! love it!

3 College Freshman

Transportation: There really isn't any need for a car on Campus. The campus is small enough that you can walk everywhere. I think the only time when a car is nice is when you need to go to the grocery store,but we do have a car service where we can borrow a car for a decent price. The school also has shuttles that can take you to major cities, depending on where you're going it could be a bit pricey.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Grocery Store – Well, I lived off-campus, so I would usually get my food from Braulim's Grocery Store. It was a little bit pricey, but if you had coupons and took advantage of the good deals they sometimes offered, it wasn't so bad.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg, Idaho has to be one of the safest town I've ever live in. I think the place is so safe, the police literary have nothing to do! It's a beautiful little town with very friendly people. You can walk through the streets and campus and people everywhere smile or greet you. It's great! There really isn't all that much to do in Rexburg itself, but the campus ALWAYS has things going on, so you can't ever be bored. There is also a local place called Sammy's that has concerts going on every friday or saturday night.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Why I Love BYU-I – Brigham Young University in Idaho sets itself apart from other schools in many ways. One of those ways sticks out to me more than any other. It is referred to as the Spirit of Ricks. BYU-I was previously Ricks College, so the saying stuck. There is a certain feeling that people get on the campus at BYU-I. It is a feeling of peace, happiness, and comfort. It is not rare to be greeted by a complete stranger with a "Good morning!" or a cheerful "Hello!" The professors at BYU-I are very personable and unlike many other university professors, have a strong desire to personally help the students to succeed. It is more than just a job for them and they are not only in it for the paycheck. There are many social activities offered on campus and even off campus through the schools recreation program. The tuition costs for students who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is also subsidized by the tithing payers of the church, which makes attending school there much more affordable than some other universities. Brigham Young University in Idaho is a wonderful school and I am not only privileged, but proud to be a student there.

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg Dining – In Rexburg you have many fast food restaurants including Jack in the Box, McDonalds, Wendy's and many more. There are also dining places such as Sammy's which is a VERY popular place for college students to go. The food is delicious and the service is great!I highly recommend it! There are Pizza Pie Cafe's, various Mexican restaurants, sand which delis, Big Judds burger place which is famous for their HUGE burgers and much more. Local businesses are given the opportunity to allow for student discounts through Starving Student Cards which are very convenient. Overall Rexburg has great places for off-campus dining.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg Is Great – Rexburg, Idaho is a very family oriented community. With there being a Latter-Day Saint church based university in the town, a good majority of the population are also LDS. There are many outdoor activities that are available such as caving, spelunking, hiking, climbing, snowboarding, skiing, camping and so much more. Near Rexburg is Yellowstone National Park and also Teton National Park. Rexburg provides the necessary shopping needs for groceries and much more. Winter months are always a dangerous time for snowy and cold places but Rexburg does a great job of enforcing laws that result in a safer atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Modest Is Hottest – Our school has very strict guidelines for dress and grooming standards. Anything revealing in any way is prohibited on campus. Flip flops, shorts, and tank tops are a few of the items of clothing not allowed on campus. Men are to be clean shaven and both girls and boys are to be dressed in a reverent manner. The social life is great. Alcohol and drugs are not allowed and if a student is caught with either substance, they will be removed from the school. BYU Idaho is the place for dating and having fun. Eventually many of the students find their eternal companion.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Campus Life – Many people don't live on campus. They live in campus approved housing. The housing is exceptional. The cost and very cheap but everything is top notch. The atmosphere is wonderful. I always feel so happy. The housing process is quite simple. Everyone is out to help everyone. I would recommend BYU Idaho housing to everyone.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The Spirit of Campus – BYU Idaho is, in my opinion, the safest school in the US. There is something different about this school. Honor codes and spiritual themes cause the campus to be a happy place. I have never felt afraid or in need of assistance. However, if I did, campus security is always nearby. With the presence of the Holy Ghost, nothing can truly harm me.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Honor Code – everyone is pretty friendly. they take care of their selves and apperance while following the honor code.

Off-Campus Dining: rexburg has a lot of mom and pop dinning options not a lot of chains

Local Area: Rexburg Idaho – small comfortable little town with a nice atmosphere.

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.
