4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lot's of White People – For the most part, people on campus are friendly and always willing to meet new people. While there is ethnic diversity on campus, about 60-70% of the student population is white. Meeting a student who is not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is virtually unheard of. All students are expected to remain modestly dressed and groomed in lieu of a school uniform. In the business program especially students are encouraged to wear professional clothing on campus. Basketball shorts and sweats on campus are strongly discouraged.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Supply Chain Management – Every class is designed to help you get internships. There are dozens of companies that regularly take interns from this university with the expectation that our contributions will be excellent. BYU-I has a very good reputation. The work load is doable, but can often be taxing. Contributing to classroom discussions is expected - it is strongly encouraged that you will seek out learning from sources outside of the classroom and bring your findings into the classroom in order to cultivate an atmosphere in which "real-world" learning can take place, keeping it fresh and avoiding the rut of developing an atmosphere of academic dogmatism that has little relevancy outside academia.

3 College Junior

Parking: Walking Encouraged – The university encourages walking but there are parking spaces. You need diferent permits to park in different sections. Not to expensive.

4 College Junior

Administration: BE GOOD – You are expected to dress neatly and modestly. It's not bad for most people. No tolerance for drinking, drugs, stealing or cheating!

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Excelent Exccept for Agricultural – Great learning resourses. No competitive sports teams although excelent free gym. They are getting rid of the horse program. The agricultural program is lacking and the administrators don't seem to think they matter.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Affordable, Quality Education – The professors here are really good, and they have great connections for finding potential internships and jobs. Education is affordable and scholarships are usually easy to get.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small Town Atmoshere – Rexburg has a great small-town atmosphere with very little crime. There are grocery stores nearby campus and a lot of outdoor activities to do. Yellowstone is about one hour away, and the Teton mountains and Jackson Hole are nearby.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: International Studies Major – The international studies major is new to the school, but there are very qualified professors who oversee the major. There is also a great networking program. Currently, there is a study abroad program in Beijing, China; and they are working on developing other study abroad programs. A language minor is required for an international studies major. Languages that are offered are: Russian, German, Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese.

4 College Senior

Technology: The school offers MANY computers for students to use and have great deals/plans for laptops. The printers are great and you only need 4 cents to print something. The internet speed can be a bit bitter but other than that, computer labs are great and around all over campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Living in Idaho can be boring and athletics/sports are what keep us, students, motivated and happy. In the winter, we're forced to play inside the BYU-Idaho Center along with EVERY other student that's also trying to play a sport they like. It's chaotic and cramped in the gym. I understand the school has made many renovations and has expanded these sort of facilities for us to enjoy but they're also trying to enroll more students. If they want more students and have us enjoy our time at BYU-I, we'd appreciate space to play.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Do You Like to Ski? If so, you'll fit in great. Rumor has it that some students have skied to class or worn their ice skates. It's Idaho, so no one should be that surprised. Make sure you have a warm coat, ear muffs and good shoes. While your peep toe-wedge sandals might be cute with your outfit, you'll probably fall and break your leg if you wear them November through April.

Administration: Honor Code – Here at BYU-Idaho each student signs an honor code. They know the rules and "strict" guidelines before the come. Those who complain should choose another school. The rules are here to help us get the best education possible while helping to mold us into future leaders.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Quaint and Warm – Rexburg is a small town nestled in south east Idaho. The friendly people and mom and pop shops help bring out good old fashioned honesty and community involvement. The area is rich in hunting and camping and allows for students to explore new hobbies. Although the winter temperatures can dip down into the negatives the people make this place warm and cozy year round.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Everything is in great condition and employees are always willing to help.

Party Scene: Not Much of One – Considering the curfew, not much of a night life here at BYU-Idaho.

5 College Senior

Majors: Obtain Internships – Obtain internships when you can to get the maximum learning experience from the university.

Overall Experience: Great Opportunity – Attending school at BYU-Idaho has been a fantastic learning experience. The social aspect is great, the professors care, its a fun place to learn and grow.

3 College Senior

Parking: Parking can be a pain at school during certain hours. A lot of students with a very limited amount of spaces. The price of permits is not worth getting one. After four on weekdays and anytime on weekends you can park anywhere without a permit.

5 College Senior

Academics: Great Learning Experience – Overall, BYU-Idaho offers a fantastic learning experience where the professors care about how well you succeed, classes that stretch you, and an environment where it is fun to learn.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: As longs as you keep your grades up, you can always get a scholarship of varying amounts. Other ways to receive grant money is to turn 24 or get married.

4 College Senior

Administration: Pretty Good – Haven't had too much trouble in this department, security will always kick you out of buildings once it hits midnight.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Although its probably a good idea to, you don't really need to lock doors in this town because of how safe and secure it is.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Somewhat Good – It is not a far walk to campus however, just this semester (fall 2011) the school has implemented the use of "We Cars" which are cars you can rent for an alloted amount of time for a fixed rate.

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.
