2 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay for new freshman, but they're not great. They have cinderblock walls, and hard carpeted floors, and they're really small. Also, you can't control the heating, so it gets really hot at night, so much that we would need to keep the window open, even in the Rexburg winters.

Off-Campus Housing: There is a wide variety of options for off-campus housing, and they include housing both from the low and high ends of the pricing range. Some, like the Ivy apartments, are really nice and classy, while others are more practical and affordable. Some apartments also offer the option of using scholarship money to help pay for housing.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Since this school is a school owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a high majority of the students are of the same religion. There is some diversity in other areas, but not to a major extent.

Drug Safety: There is no drug scene at BYU Idaho, because if you do drugs, you are expelled.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very helpful but there are always long lines, go early in the morning.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The Crossroads is a great place to eat and meet people.

4 College Junior

Administration: At BYU-I there is an honor code that students agree to live up to before they are admitted. This includes no drinking, smoking, or drugs, and no sex. There is also a curfew for men to be out of women's apartments and women to be out of men's apartments. That is midnight on most nights and one on friday nights. The opposite sex is not allowing in bedrooms or bathrooms of student apartments.

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are some new facilities on campus such as the I-center and the the addition to the MC building. The I-center is one of the largest indoor amphitheater's in the state. It seats 15,000 and is state of the art. It is very aesthetically pleasing and modern as is the addition to the MC building. The Spori building is the oldest on campus and is very beautiful as it is the center for the arts on campus. There are a few older buildings such as the Kirkham and the Smith that are older and somewhat unappealing aesthetically. Everything on campus is kept very clean.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg has most of the fast food chain restaurants, but not many mid-grade restaurants. It has an array of locally owned ice cream shops that are good for a date. There is a place called Sammy's that has the most amazing apple pie milk shakes. There is a new ice cream shop on Main Street called Thor's that has $1 one scoop ice cream cones.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is basically no drug or alcohol scene since BYU-Idaho is a church school and if you're caught with anything then you're out.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Most everything in Rexburg is within walking distance so it's pretty much free. The people are also very kind and most anybody will give you ride if you ask, though you should probably ask your roommates or someone you know than a stranger.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most of the parties and get-togethers are at other students houses or apartments. There are also intramural sports that takes place in the evening that are easy to join. The school does a good job putting together many activities each semester such as dances and game nights.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is only intramural at BYU-I. I would say that they are good though. Its fun to get out and play sports. Most of the program is student run, which is cool. I had the chance to be a referee and make money while doing it. It was a fun experience.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The biggest problem is overcrowding. It seems at the moment you need one most, there isnt a single one. I saw they put a number of new computers in but they are the virtual ones where you have to be careful and save your work or you could lose it all.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics have been the upside of college. We do many things that are particular to what we might do in the future, including working with human bodies. The workload may be heavy, but I have learned a lot.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The variety of choices is good. A little bit of everything is offered but at a price. It feels like you overpay for everything. It can also be over crowed at lunch time.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics in my field of study are great. Many of the professors have personal experience in the subject they teach. it is also very competitive and is sometimes difficult to get into the classes you need.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the major program I am in. One of the first teacher I had was so passionate about it that you could tell the true love he had in helping people. With that he was a fun teacher so it got me excited more for my major and I didn't dread going to class even when they did start at 7:45. He really made me realize that I love my major and that I cannot wait to get out there and help others.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have never heard of anything extremely scaring happening on campus and if it does then there are people there to help with it and get it all fixed up.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Both girls and boys, for the most part, at respectful to other classmates and the teachers. They hold themselves up high and seem to be very smart in their schooling.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student life is very good considering the amount of activities and options available. Everything from dances and workout classes, to athletics and outdoor activities. There is sports leagues for everyone as well. It has been one of the great parts of college for me and made it much more enjoyable.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options for dining but they are the same as always. There are many fast food places which have good prices and are convenient. There are also nice places like Applebees that are a great option too but student discounts not really available.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus no matter where I am. I am still careful with my possessions because of signs that inform of theft that has occurred.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The drug scene at BYU-Idaho is nearly non existent. It isnt seen anywhere on or near campus. Here and there people talk about parties but I have never seen or been invited to any of these activities.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Student life is great but challenging. The buildings offer a great classroom experience and areas to study in. The library helps with research and gives a place for students to go and study in quiet. In addition to education the number one priority Brigham Young University- Idaho offers events and activities for students to mingle and meet each other.

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.
