3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rexburg Nothing – Just about all the major fast foods resturaunts are available here but not very many sit down establishments are available

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Rexburg Housing – there is more than enough housing but i think that they are a bit ridiculous when it comes to price but you can find just about whatever fits your needs here

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Every single student must live in approved housing, either on or off campus. The housing selection I've chosen is simple and nice.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Campus is a decent size so walking is not that big of a deal, but lots of people do decide to park on campus. Parking permits are $25 so that is a really good price in my opinion. I do not have a parking permit because I live really close so walking is easy. However, the permits are not very pricey so getting a permit is always an option.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Crossroads – So our school has this dinning hall in the M.C. building that is referred to as the Crossroads. It has all sorts of food. It is amazing and reasonably priced. You can pay for your food here with your I-card. You are also able to do a dinning dollars plan so that you do not have to make sure that you have cash on you to pay for a snack.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety and Security at BYU-Idaho – The campus is amazingly safe. Everyone is supper friendly and kind to you. The crime rate here on campus is really low because everyone is so kind and caring to one another. The campus is patrolled daily by campus security. They are always making sure that people are following the rules and conducting themselves in an appropriate manner. We do not drink or use illegal substances at this school so you do not have to worry about problems regarding issues like that.

1 College Sophomore

Administration: Very Strict – So strict, there is a dress code and even a curfew.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: There are computers on every floor of the library. There are also printers in every building.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Is Very Safe – This school is so safe, it is in a small town, and the locals are great and friendly. The city is very clean. I love it.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: This school strives for success in all that one does. The unique thing about this school is the people in it. The teachers care so much for each student and show it by clarifying how much they are worth. The students are respectable and honest young people who want the best for everyone around them aside for themselves. The academic discovery center here makes sure that each student is provided with the essentials to help guide themselves to a successful life with the major they choose. Internships are listed for them to take and try.

Party Scene: Night Life – As many may know, there is a curfew policy at Brigham Young University schools. The "night life" ends around 12 on the week days and 1 on the weekends. There are plenty of parties to attend and the news about them spread fast before the weekend. There is always some sort of party going on whether it be at a local restaurant or at a local karaoke club, or even at the school itself. There are no bars here but the small town knows how to take a party to a whole other level.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I Couldn't Have Asked for Better – I love the school here. There are so many teachers to choose from for each topic of study. There are many majors and classes to choose from. The teachers here are very helpful, and since it is a religious school, they are helpful on a spiritual level as well. It is impossible not to learn something every day at this school. The registration processes are easy to get through here. It is easy to get stuff done here. When the study load may get a little over bearing, there is a three leveled library with assistants to help you in whatever you are looking for, as well as plenty of study groups to help you with your focus and struggles on a certain subject.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Small Town – Rexburg is a small town. Everything is within walking distance of campus. All the apartment complexes are within a few blocks as well as the major stores.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug Free – Since byui is a religious school, drugs and alcohol aren't really an issue here. Sure there are a few kids that party but most of the students here don't participate in those activities. It's not allowed on our campus at all. The school does a good job of keeping students that participate in drugs and drinking out of the school.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, even at night. There are security guards on duty all the time and there are cameras all over campus. The school really strives to protect its students and make it a comfortable, safe place to be.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Art Dept – It's pretty easy to get into the art program. the BFA program can be a little more difficult.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Quality Vs. Distance – when picking off campus off it's best to compare rate & quality vs. distance from campus. some places farther from campus will cost as much as other places closer to campus but the quality will definitely be different.

4 College Junior

Majors: I don't have one yet, but I definitely plan on having one. I just went to a meeting where they discussed internships and how to get invovled. There are great people who help find internships for the students on campus as well. I think it would be a great way to learn hands on, and to get my name out there!

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The Best School Ever! I love this school. There's a good happy spirit here. The sudents are very friendly, and the campus is nice. There are always dances, shows, and games going on. You can never find yourself bored on a friday night. IT's pretty easy to find a job as well. It's just a nice school. It's cold, but nice!

4 College Junior

Academics: Business Management Major – The programs at this school are great! Sometimes I struggle with different classes like accounting or economics, but I still learn tons! I love what I'm learning and feel that it will be a great benefit in future endeavors. My teachers are very caring and intelligent. We don't have too much homework, but enough to learn the material.

5 College Junior

Administration: Students Will Be Expelled for Severe Word of Wisdom Violations. Students will be expelled for severe Word of Wisdom violations.

3 College Senior

Parking: The tickets are not expensive, but the parking is strict. There is not enough as well; however, the school is expanding and I believe the situation will be rectified.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Not Much – You socialize with others. There are many activities outdoors especially during the Spring semester. Sammy's is a great place to go for free concerts. The school puts on a lot of productions and activities as well for entertainment.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During my experiences in Rexburg, the weather is very warm in the Spring leading into the Fall where it gradually gets bitter cold. The winters tend to begin earlier than most states. Ice is an issue off campus, but the University has made a tremendous effort to keep the campus walkways clear and safe for the students walking between classes.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The University requires those with a car parking on campus must purchase a parking permit. The prices varies from $20.00 to $30.00 depending on the location of where you will be parked. They also offer a yearly parking pass for $70.00. The need for a car on campus is optional. The University persists that students walk or bike to class to save gas and parking spaces.

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.
