4 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is diverse in many ways but not really in religion or things associated with religion. There are many people from different backgrounds and ethnicity that its wonderful to learn from them. I think the school as a whole is very accepting of all people though the majority of the school is LDS.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This school has a remote location so there needs to me many fun opportunities for everyone to enjoy themselves. This campus is united and the social activities are so fun. It would be nice if they had organized sports teams though.

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't a ton of places to dine within walking distance, but what there is is very good; especially Shake Out, and Fong's Chinese. The food at Shake Out is slightly overpriced, but very hard to beat taste wise. Taco Bell and Thor's Ice Cream are both in walking distance, and cheap. Thor's keeps its prices down though by only allowing you to pay with cash. I would definitely go to Kiwi Loco and Little Caesar's too. The really nice thing about Kiwi Loco's is that they deliver, so you can just order it from your home.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There really isn't much crime on campus, but I'm sure there is some theft. I personally feel very safe on campus. We've never had a break in, and if there's even a crime in the city that could potentially affect us, then they send out a school wide email to warn everyone. (This has only happened once.) The campus police are not very prevalent, they are there and such, but it's mostly for security and traffic violations. If you have anything you need, then it is not hard to find security. I truly feel extremely safe here, it's a wonderful environment, I highly recommend it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is great. There are a lot of options, both healthy and unhealthy. There is everything, Oriental, Italian, American, and Hispanic. I don't eat there often though, because most places have kitchens (all but the boy's Chapman Hall have kitchen's to my knowledge).

4 College Freshman

Technology: Computers are good and I think there's plenty of them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The oncampus dorms aren't the best thing, but they sere their purpose.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Brigham Young University Idaho has a fantastic campus life. It is very connected and there are so many clubs, sports, dances, and activities to attend. The library is great because there are different floors for different noise levels or types of study (1st floor - all environments, 2nd floor - quiet/personal study, 3rd floor - group study). There are also several places to eat and study in nearly every building. The people on campus are welcoming and kind too, which makes it a better atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Cross Roads is the place on campus where everyone goes to eat. It's pretty good, and there are a lot of options, but after awhile you don't always want to eat what they have. I personally prefer home cooked meals because they are cheaper, but for those who don't like to cook, the Cross Roads offers good options.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe and at home at the BYU-I campus. Everyone is friendly and nice,and I haven't heard of any crimes or unsafe events happening there. Obviously you should be weary of any place, but this place is great and is probably one of the safest schools you will ever go to.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: I absolutely love it up here at BYU-I! It has a great atmosphere and teachers strive to get to know you on a personal level. Random people will stop and say hi or offer a kind compliment, I've even had random people help me with my groceries! Rexburg is the friendliest community I have ever visited.

5 College Freshman

Technology: There are plenty of computers for you to use on campus, and as long as you put some money on your I-card, you can print also. I'ts very helpful to have your own computer though because you need it in some classes and also if you want more time to do your homework you need one because the school library closes before curfew.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: The summers area very nice. It never gets really hot, but it stays plesent. Every now and then we get a good thunder storm, and the nights are usually clear. The winters are very cold though, and it often ices over. Because it happens so often, school rarely gets canceled.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a wonderful area. It is a place that is devoted to studying where there are not a lot of distractions to keep you from your work. The people are nice and excepting of us, and it is easy to make friends there. There isn't a whole lot there to be honest, but if you can get ride to Idaho Falls, they have stuff out there.

2 College Junior

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity here. Most are white if you are looking for a school with a lot of diversity yet again Brigham Young University Idaho is not for you.

Party Scene: There isn't a lot of things to do in Rexburg. There is a movie theater, laser tag, and they have the dunes and ice caves. There are not any clubs but the school does put on dances if that's what your into. Most of the kids stay at home and watch movies or go on dates.

1 College Junior

Weather: If you get on fall/spring track count your blessings. Winter can be a nightmare. It goes below zero a lot here. Its icy so if your klutzy stay away. The wind is also horrible so if you cant take intense weather conditions BYU-I is not the school for you. It takes a special kind of person to go here. Other than winter semester the weather is fairly nice.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I'm an art major with an emphasis in Graphic Design. Studying at BYUI is a great opportunity they have teachers who are part of the art department who are highly qualified in their areas of art that they teach in. The only down fall that I have found with their curriculum is the fact that they require all art students to take these two online art courses. Which i understand that the university just doesn't have enough space for all the art courses to bee taught on campus. But this has made it difficult for few students because of the way that they learn the best is not accommodated for while taking these online courses

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am quite happy as a Psychology major. I have enjoyed the classes and really loved the professors. They don't just sit there and reuse old power points. They want to know if you have questions. Assignments are there to actually help you learn, not just busy work. One of my career goals is to be a Marriage and Family Therapist and many of the professors have experience in that field. I don't have too many concerns about finding a job just about finding one in Texas where I am originally from. I know that God will help me with my goals if I am faithful to Him.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I went to BYUI because of liking a girl that I met on my mission. Little did I know that the opportunities for on-campus jobs were plenteous. The professors really care about the students. The tuition is attractive. The students are really nice. The curriculum is one of kind in the US because no other school melds faith and reason quite like BYUI. The people that work in registration department know their stuff and answer questions real good.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a Psychology major and really enjoy the classes I have taken and am enrolled in so far. I like that the professors are knowledgeable and have great senses of humor. The fellow students I am with could use some work with being more invested in the class, but I do meet a couple students that really know their stuff. It is easy to get to know the professors personally and have them know you at least by face recognition. They are flexible with office hours and don't mind explaining things further for you.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Really if you want to save money I would suggest that you go to Broulim's and buy food that you can prepare. Eating out is expensive and if you are looking for financial aid you probably need to be a bit more conservative in spending your money. I will say that there are two Taco Bus restaurants that are really inexpensive by Wal*Mart and also by the round about close to Tuscany apartments. I enjoy Costa Vida but that is one of those places that you go to to get the student deals they have for a date night.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: As I have attended this university the experience has been pretty smooth. We receive emails about the needs based scholarship application that will let you get money based on your needs. If isn't too long to fill out and is not that difficult. The only hassle was with filling out the FASFA because we had to drive to Idaho Falls and get a print out from the IRS. The BYUI financial aid website is easy to navigate and that is how I found this site actually. I have been pretty blessed by the aid that I have received so far.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There are a lot of computers and computer labs around campus and I have no complaints about the internet quality here. with all the printers around campus and the cheap cost of printing I can not complain.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Since BYU-Idaho is a LDS school the students here generally believe that we should not use drugs so the drug safety is more of a moral belief than a school enforced program.

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.
