4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Very Good – Depending whether you are single or married - single housing has to be up to BYU-I standards and requirements, so single housing is generally good. Single housing is also generally within a couple of blocks of campus. Married/community housing is not always so accommodating, well priced or available. Also, most married housing you would need to have a car to easily get to school with; you could walk but it would take a while.

Campus Quality: Let's Talk Sports – At BYU Idaho, from competitive to made up sports, there is a big variety of sports that you can participate in. I hear that you don't need to bring a swim suit or towel since you can rent one (which is cleaned of course!) at the pool and horseback riding! That is really cool if you ask me!

Local Area: From Sun to Snow – Coming from Hawaii, BYU Idaho looks pretty cold, but the scenery looks breathtaking. There are so many activities to choose from in and outside of campus. I have never been to BYU yet, but after reading the many ideas from current students, I'm excited already. What I am more excited about is the Heise Hot Springs, full of pools and a mineral pool! Overall, I hear the atmosphere is great and friendly and a safe place. Since BYU is a Latter Day Saints University, there is an Honor Code that must be followed and I recently read that skinny jeans are not allowed. It will be too cold to wear skinny jeans for me anyway. There is way too much to list about what you can do, but I can't wait!

Weather: I've only ever been up for winter semester (January - April), but the snow is hell. The wind chill subtracts several degrees from that too. It can be quite bitter.

4 College Student

Parking: Haven't really had an issue with it. Paid around $10 for a permit, but there always seems to be okay parking.

5 College Student

Drug Safety: No Drugs Whatsoever – Obviously, since this is a church-owned school, there are no drugs to worry about. Worry about pizza, there's tons of that here.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking permits are required for everywhere at BYU-Idaho, whether on campus or off. School permits are required for on campus and city permits are required for off campus.

3 College Junior

Administration: Strict but Safe – BYU-Idaho has a very strict Honor Code that all students are expected to live by. The code includes dress and grooming standards, curfew, behavioral expectations, housing rules, academic standards, etc. The rules and expectations are spelled out upon application to the school and each student must agree to abide by them.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safest Campus – BYU-Idaho has the safest campus of any university I've attended. This is not a result of an over-bearing security team or excessive rules, but rather the respectful demeanor of the student body and the level of responsibility that the university holds its attendants to.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Though rexburg is very small and you can walk to most places, during the winter not having a car can be brutle. Luckily, there is a car service called WeCar and it's very affordable. I've used it many times and you don't have to pay for gas. You only have to pay about $8 per hour.

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am extremely happy with the academics at BYU-I. The professors are very warm and helpful as well as intelligent and effective in their teaching. They have an excellent tutoring center too. It's free and you can set up an appointment anytime. The only thing that I don't really like is the testing center. It's really an inconvenience when the teachers could just give the tests in the classrooms. Other than that, I love the academics.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are not a big part of BYU-I. I never heard of a game going on unless it was from my neighbor who was on the basketball game. I'm not even sure if our football team ever played any real games. I don't know of any other sports teams on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Life – There are so many opportunities that are continually growing on campus. These include major selection, extracurricular selection, social activities and business opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports and Athletic Opportunities – There are no professional or inter-school competition teams. The range of sport and athletic involvement is very broad though and the fitness building is very accommodating and extracurricular activities are popular.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining Hall and Meals – I find the dining halls very clean, open and inviting. The food services are easy to use with a wide variety. The quality of the food is satisfactory but taste could be improved.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: So Many Choices, but It's So Expensive! Rexburg offers a lot of really great options for off-campus housing. The only thing is the prices are high. However, you will get exactly what you pay for. For example, The Ivy is currently the newest housing for women and it is also one of the priciest pads in town, but it's also the NICEST apartments in town.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a Lot of Places – There are fast food restaurants, but no one wants to eat there a lot. There are wingers, applebees, and costa vida, but not that many other places to eat. Costa vida is a little on the expensive side but super good food to eat. Pizza Pie Cafe is awesome, it's an all you can eat pizza/salad/pasta buffet.

3 College Junior

Academics: Medical Assisting – Very easy major, not hard classes and you can complete your major in less than two years!

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: All of the students are well groomed and follow a strict honor code of conduct for the way they act and dress. People are generally very friendly and nice. It's a great place to make long-lasting friends

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I don't feel like there is a problem with lack of diversity. There are plenty of ethnic diversity at BYU-I.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small and Friendly – I like living in Rexburg, Idaho. I like the small town feel of the community. There aren't very many attractions or activities to do in Rexburg, but Idaho Falls is only a 25-30 minute drive and there's lots of fun activities to do there!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: One Area. The places for food are okay. The dining hall is in one building, but there are little shops in a few others.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: High Standards – If you want a school that upholds good christian standards BYUI is the place for you. I love that everyone is trying to be the best. The standards are high but the activities are still fun and people are still down to earth. There are always things to do if you just stay involved. An on campus bonus are the fitness classes that are offered at night for free, anything from Zumba, yoga to kickboxing.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I am happy to say there are many options for dining on campus. Even the main on campus cafeteria has a variety of food options to choose from. There are many cafe's in different buildings and vending machines all over. There is no reason to not go hungry. However, I wished the cafeteria would be open at night or have more of the smaller campuses open during the evening.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I was disappointed to find the only general public computers were those within the library. I would love to see more computers in other spots around campus, near the on campus dining area for example or maybe an on campus internet cafe. However, there are some computer labs with some majors. It would just be nice to have them more public throughout campus.

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.
