3 College Junior

Transportation: There really isn't a great need for transportation, since there isn't a whole lot to do in town, but there is always something going on at the school - it's a lot of fun! If you need to go shopping, the store is an easy 3 blocks from campus, and for activities off campus, the school will provide a bus or van.

4 College Senior

Local Area: BYU-Idaho has a peaceful spirit. The people are kind, friendly and helpful. Located in a small town some places may take some traveling, but there is a lot of history to explore and learn about Rexburg, Idaho. I love the small intimate feel of this town with less chaos to distract me from fulfilling my educational responsibilities.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: Students and facilty are not allow to participate in any drug activities of any kind, and if anyone is caught doing so is kicked out. BYU-Idaho takes drug safety very seriously and investigates any suppected of doing so.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: BYU-Idaho has a spirit of peace and calmness. People are kind and they are always trying to help. There is no drink, late night partying, and it is highly expected of everyone to be honest and trustworthy in every aspect of their lives. I have felt safest at BYU-Idaho than most other similar places.

5 College Sophomore

Local Area: There is a wonderful, open, peaceful and friendly atmosphere at BYU-Idaho. The people make a huge difference here.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoyed the on-campus housing my freshman year and loved it. I had a great experience with roommates and neighbors. My freshman year was fun and memorable and I believe it was because of my location and the people I spent time with at Perkins Hall.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am a music major and I play the saxophone. I received a scholarship to play saxophone and every semester, so long as I perform in a ensemble, it is applied to my financial responsibilities. I have also had another financial award from BYU-Idaho and as soon as I received it and met the required credit hours it was applied.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I have found that the majority of the students at BYU-Idaho are attractive, very well groomed, outgoing, and creative. I have really enjoyed roommate and FHE activities there from snowball fights, ultimate frisbee games, dances, making music videos, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have enjoyed the majority of my experience involving the off-campus housing. I stayed at Royal Crest my first semester of my sophomore year. I really enjoyed it, my roommates were amazing, and when I needed to sell my second semester contract my manager was very helpful in helping me sell it.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's definitely harder during the winter to enjoy the outdoors and to walk anywhere to class, but I have found it hasn't made it hard to enjoy the college experience. My favorite semester so far at BYU-Idaho was Winter Semester 2011.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people from every walk of life here on campus not to sound too cheesy. I love asking everyone where they are from, because I know that it will be different every time. Right now BYU-I is expanding a program called pathway speakers where students can help other students who are trying to learn english.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Parking can get crazy, but like almost any other campus by planning you can increase the available parking spots available.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: This is one of the best online schools that I have attended.

1 College Student

Athletics: There really aren't any, honestly. There are a few sports played, but nobody's really interested, it's more for fun.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few restaurants, but not much for fine-dining if you want to do that.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've only been to a few restaurants but they're really good!

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are many good looking guys and girls at the school. Have the dress code ensures that people dont look like bums on campus and most girls get pretty dressed up daily and so do the men. Its nice to see some classy attire instead of just sweats everyday

Diversity: so many races and beliefs that all fit in at the school

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our school is special in the fact that it is a church run school with high standards. You are expected to do your best in school as well as look and act your best. This adds a certain level of comfort to the campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus is very strict with their rules. They expect you to be dressed well and looking your best. By doing so, everyone is looking their best and it helps keep the spirit on campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is very secure and safe. There isn't much to worry about there. You know that everyone is following the honor code and security is in place should anything happen.

5 College Freshman

Majors: Applying and admissions was easy. Getting the endorsments was probably the hardest part only because I was so busy. I didn't really have time to meet with the stake president. The essays have to be less than 200 words and there are only two. I thought it was great because I found out I got accepted two days after i sent in my application and i found out my track two weeks later

3 College Freshman

Weather: In the summer it is great. Its warm during the day but it cools off at night. Fall and spring are good too. You have to be prepared for the winters though. It can start to snow as soon as october and the snow will stick around until the spring. You will want warm boots and a parka, especially if you aren't bringing a car.

Academics: There is a lot of variety in the classes you can take. Obviously there are required classes for all students and for your major but there are also classes that are just fun like skiing, snowboarding, and lots of different dance classes.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It is AMAZING!! There is such a good atmosphere all around the campus itself that is great. It was what first attracted me to the school, and I still love it. The town is rather small and very much mostly students, but it's great and the residents are very kind to the students.

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.
