College Sophomore

Parking: No Car – I don't have a car. But everything is really close to campus so I do just fine.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Atmosphere – BYU-Idaho is amazing. You will always have a friends and always have something to do. A lot of kids play around instead of study so I don't think they're getting everything out of the school that they could, but the professors truly care about you and want you to succeed. At BYU-Idaho you will have every opportunity to obtain a wonderful education.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is okay. It is always hard to find a spot though. THey need a parking garage. They arent pretty or very clean...but sometimes they are needed.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The intramurals offer a great alternative to playing varsity spors. They are just as competative

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Try Gringos – For such a small place there is a plethora of options. I love how there is a good variety of different kinds of food as well.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Because this is such a small city there is no public transportation. They do have the option that you can rent a car to drive around town for dates and shopping and such, but it's kind of expensive and not worth it when you can walk.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Wholesome Clean Fun – At BYU-I, they are focused on clean, wholesome fun. If someone is looking for a wild nightlife, they can forget about it.

Campus Housing: Clean, Very Small, Older – The dorms are full of very fun exciting people, however they are slightly older and there is not a lot of space. It cost a lot more to get a large or private room.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The spring and fall are just beautiful to be there for! The weather is warm and the campus is beautiful and green. In the winter it is freezing. Sometimes it gets to -15 and it is bitter cold. The buildings on campus are nice and toasty inside. Just be equipped with winter wear before showing up in the winter!

Parking: There are not a lot of close parking spots for students. It is also confusing trying to decide what parking pass to purchase because you have to coordinate classes, buildings, times and places.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: BYUI is a very safe campus. There are rape lights and phones posted all over campus. There are also standard that all students have to agree to follow if they decide to further their education at BYUI. There is little drinking and students are supposed to be home at 12 am, which helps keep the safety of the student. I have always felt safe at BYUI.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: People Are Friendly! You'll find all sorts of guys here. Most are very friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking permit required and then it's still a long walk to classes unless you get a permit early!

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It usually snows a lot here, but not this year! It rains quite a bit, but other days the bright sunshine is abundant.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love It! I've been very satisified with my education thus far. All the professors are helpful and willing to work with you in getting help if you need it.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Relatively Easy – No special application process, have to maintain a certain grade point average. Have to take tests periodically.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I Love Elementary Education! I've enjoyed all my classes so far and really enjoyed the Early Field Experience. I made a plan early on and have tried to stick with it, scheduling classes is sometimes difficult, but professors are willing to work with you!

4 College Freshman

Parking: Easier to Just Walk – Its easiest to just walk to campus, and it doesn't take that long. But if you are going to drive, make sure you have a permit for the parking areas closest to your classes. There are several types of parking permits that all have lots around campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Great Program and Faculty – I'm in the Music program and its lots of fun! It's a lot of work and time commitment, but if you're willing to put forth the effort than it's all worth it.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Small but Clean – The dorms, like most dorms are small, but they are well kept. They also have good atmospheres.

3 College Student

Weather: A Bit of Everything – In the winter there is snow, not as much as I'm used to. In spring and fall its rainy, not to much. In the summer it gets hot, 80s to 90s. It also blows alot.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Rexburg has all the season! The summers are amazing

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: BYUI has a unique three track system allow twice as many students attend this university. This three track system may allow more students however each semester is 4 weeks shorter then a regular semester, allowing the students to learn more in a shorter amount of time.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I came to Brigham Young University Idaho because of the atmosphere of the school and the high standards they hold each student to abide by. The professors are great they know what they are talking about and care about all of their students.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I haven't had much experience with the financial aid office. But they are pretty good at letting us know scholarship opportunities, etc.

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.
