Campus Quality: Services Are Great – there are so many free seervices offered by the school, who pay students to help other studnets with things. There is a computer help desk, which will fix your computer for free, and there is free tutoring for almost every class, and free intrview and job application practice. it's a great help to all students who choose to use it.

Campus Quality: Gym Is Great – the gym at BYUI is better than most professional gyms. It is brand new with high quality machines, and free personal trainers when available, as part of a volunteer service. There is also a ten court basketball gym, and 5 racquet ball courts. Also, there is a good sized swimming pool.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Experiences Teachers – The teachers in my major have had many different job experiences. They are willing to help me determine the best place for me to work once I graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school does not have any actual teams, but offers several different intramural programs. The athletics facilities are very nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Much of the off-campus housing is conveniently locate right across the street from the school. All housing must be approved by the school. Some do not have very fast internet and do not have air conditioning.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg Idaho's Atmosphere – Rexburg is a town made to accommodate the needs of the students that attend Brigham Young University. There is a lot of religious activity, thus making it a more morally correct place.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: Crossroads: Good Atmosphere, Good Food – The Crossroads is the main dining place on campus. It has a good variety of food and is much better than the cafeteria BYUI used to have. It's also a fun place to socialize, meet for projects, or study. The food is pretty good, and there are a few groceries. The groceries at local off-campus stores are cheaper, and it's better and cheaper not to get a meal plan if you live in an apartment with a kitchen. I eat at the Crossroads occasionally with friends or alone, and walk through the Crossroads frequently between classes. It has a friendly, lighthearted, relaxing atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Small Classrooms Create a Personalized Educational Experience – It is a religious school, with a sense of comradery. The classrooms are smaller and more personalized, rather than a huge lecture hall. The professors express a genuine concern for each individual student, taking the time to ensure quality education. Several professors personally email/call students to survey overall satisfaction with class content and teaching. Social scene is very public, flyers all over campus announcing events, and a facebook page that friends every student to make sure there is noone excluded.

5 College Sophomore

Transportation: Small Town: Little Need for Public Transit – There are options on campus to take shuttles to surrounding airports and cities and a fairly reasonable price. There is car rentals available for insured students with decent rates, and quality vehicles. Campus is close to all housing so transportation is not an issue.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety First – BYU-Idaho Campus Police take their job very seriously, the school and local police department have a contract stating any student in trouble with the law faces consequences with school authorities. I have never felt threatened while on campus, and if there is any altercations, or problems on or off campus the campus police always show up to enforce the law. Sometimes a bit over kill, but they care a lot about our safety.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Clean as a Whistle – There is an honor code that must be signed when applying to BYU-Idaho. In this code it is strongly stated that any unhealthy substances (drugs, and alcohol) will not be ingested into the body. There is little to no drug activity and if anyone is looking to get high there is no accessibility for drugs. Very clean campus, no peer pressure. Strong enforcement from school to keep campus free of drugs.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School Spirit – Although BYU-I only has intramural sports, the students become very involved and there is always a large support system for the athletes. Facilities provided for athletics are excellent and top of the line. Anyone gets the opportunity to be involved and try a new sport, unifies the school a lot more.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small College Town – BYU-I is located in a small town, the students make up most of the population. There are several outdoor activities, and a lot of effort to put the word out when there are events on the weekends. Back to school parties, themed parties, cave neon parties, and plenty of lake trips that are always planned. Sharing a common faith makes everyone seem more in sink most of the time, seems very secure.

4 College Junior

Transportation: Compared to many other schools, availability of parking here is great! Transportation out of town is easily accessible through Salt Lake Express, The school recently adopted an hourly rental car company that will make life really easy for many of the students that don't have cars as well.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone is really nice to each other, The campus is fairly diverse. The Dominant religion is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Campus Housing: Living on Campus at BYU-Idaho – Living on campus is okay fr a few reasons, the social life is all around you, you will meet lots of people, and be close to all of your classes. In most cases you will need a meal plan, but it is a good experience overall.

3 College Senior

Transportation: Most Common Is Walking – Most students walk, bike or drive cars depending on the distance from campus that they live. Most common is walking since most housing borders campus. Driving is difficult in teh winter because of the snow and ice. Bikes are good all year besides winter. Most places you need to go are near to where you will likely live.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus Has a Huge Variety – There is a huge variety of off-campus housing. From run down houses converted into basemens apartments to brand new multi-level town houses... there is a place for every one and every budget.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: On-Campus Is Great – I have had good friends live in on-campus housing and it was great. The upkeep is good and the managers were really nice. Matinence response was fast adn the social scene I could tell was amazing. I would definitely choose on campus housing for Freshman or Sophomore yr.

3 College Junior

Administration: Easy to Follow – If you follow the rules and you are living the honor code then everything at the school, for yourself, will go smoothly. When you break a small rule, then you are asked to go home and fix the thing that you broke. Now when you break the larger rules, punishment can be very severe for that individual.

4 College Junior

Diversity: All Kinds of People – There are a lot of different kinds of races and cultures around the campus of Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are people from different countries that come to BYU-Idaho and you can easily talk to them about their home country.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Accepting and Respectful – I have found that the faculty and students are very accepting and respectful of others values, beliefs, ethnicity, and individual needs. In each class that I have attended, I have seen the students come together as a whole and interact with each other and the professors offer countless opportunities to allow students to interact and teach one another.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Never a Dull Moment – The city of Rexburg, Idaho has a small town feel and there is always something fun to do on weekdays and the weekend, including a recently built water park. There is a wonderful facility that has bowling, glow golf, arcade games, pole and movies in the same building. There is also a good selection of shops to visit whether your window shopping or trying on everything possible. Most everyone is friendly and willing to lend a helping hand. If you have the time between classes and study, you will have a great time.

Campus Quality: The facilities at Brigham Young University - Idaho are exceptional! The school is not only concerned with the student academics but also the overall well being of their students. The college has provided state of the art facilities for physical fitness and education which includes weight training and aerobic fitness areas; a wellness center to assist students in accomplishing their health goals as simple or complicated as they may be; a student health center to help when student are feeling a little off.
The library offers free tutoring available to students for every area of study with one on one or group sessions. The student center is a wonderful place for students to meet and has multiple dinning choices in one area and a reasonable price.
Overall the campus is amazing! Brigham Young University - Idaho has a wonderful atmosphere. This campus is well maintained and always in a presentable state. The faculties are always clean and you will find that the grounds are absolutely breath taking, especially the gardens, it is a favorite spot of couples to do engagement and wedding photos. I doubt that you will find any other campus with such a wonderful feel anywhere else.

Campus Quality: My School Is Different Because – Peopleare very friendly and everybody cares about you and you colledge experience, i noticed that the teachers there are willing to help you be better and help you with your grade.
The grate advantage of Brigham Young University-Idaho is that it is only a undergrad school , that means that it is only for under-grad students and it is great because it focouses more on how to make the programs for under grad students better and leaves the students better prepared for life's challenges, works and continuing education as a grad student.
the enviroment is great and people there smile all the time, it makes one of your harder days in school feel alot better when you have peole around you going through the same stress as you are but with a smile on theri faces.
We also have on tuesdays what it is called devotionals and tese devotionals we have speakers from the school and from our general authorities from our church that speak to us and give us council to be better and that is a great motivation that i love.

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.
