4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process at Brigham Young University-Idaho is very good. They are willing to work with you if you are willing to work with them.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: BYU-I computer labs are crowded a lot but it really helps you out especially if you don't have a printer at your apartment. Even though you have to pay to print papers off its very handy when you need to print essays and stuff.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There isn't a lot of bad stuff that happens. Its small and its mostly surrounded by students.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Though the church promotes tolerance, not acceptance of certain lifestyles, this often is interpreted as the need to mindlessly hate and shun all those with different views. There are many people willing to accept people and encourage them to be their best selves, though. Just hang with the right crowd of non-bigots and you'll be alright.

Drug Safety: The drug scene is pretty non-existent on this campus. In the honor code it states that you are not allowed to have drugs or alcohol. Most of the students abide by the honor code so there is not a problem on campus. When there are problems with drugs or alcohol, the Honor Code office takes it very seriously.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on this campus. Never once have I had a problem with safety.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The process for receiving financial aid is very easy. I would recommend to complete your FAFSA early that way if there are any problems they are able to solve it early. I have had some (minor) issues with my financial aid, but when I brought them to the financial advisers attention they were able to fix it right away. Overall it is extremely easy to receive aid.

Campus Food: Crossroads, Freshens, Mackay Cafe, Garden View, MC Market, Etc. The food is very very expensive, like, if you are going to be eating at the school you had better have lots of cash. Meals at the main cafeteria, the Crossroads, are typically around the $5 margin, costing a student around $15 a day for each meal. The food is quite good, however, and has a wide variety of selections (at certain times of the day, anyways, because some of the sections close down, limiting consumers to maybe 3 choices). The other places are just little to go places with packed fruit, salads, or sandwiches to students' disposal. But, need I remind, it is quite expensive. But delicious, nonetheless. The MC Market, which is somewhat modeled after a gas station, has ridiculously high prices for low quantities of food. If you're going to go grocery shopping you are better off heading to Broulims which is the grocery store that is just a few blocks away.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Dorms – For the most part, pretty nice for the ladies. Women have plenty of room for themselves, a restroom, hallway closets, and have a living room, in all of the complexes aside from one the female dorms all have a kitchen. Each apartment also has its own vacuum, mop, broom, and dustpan, allowing ladies to leave some of those bigger things at home. Boys are allowed in the apartment so long as there is a total of three people present, it is after 12 pm and before 12 am, and they do not enter the girls' bedrooms. As for the guys, each male apartment is one room that fits two beds, two dressers, and two desks, as well as other little storage space. Each hallway has three toilets and three showers for the men in that hall to use. No girls are allowed in the halls EVER. Girls are only permitted in the lounge area.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There really isnt any drugs used on campus, we just dont use it there, and we know that drugs are harmful to our bodies so we try not to partake of them

4 College Junior

Scholarships: i havent had any problems with it yet, nice & easy

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are few places but it is mostly outdoors, like hiking mountains, snow skating, and so forth

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Good food on campus but I don't have much money to spend there!

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: It snows, rains, and shines. Snow starts earlier here than in most states, so it's a little annoying getting around, but you get used to it, and everything is in pretty close so it's not a problem.

5 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I've never been exposed to drugs or alcohol, of course it's not impossible it's just incredibly low key

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I have been very grateful for the scholarships I have recieved from BYU-Idaho. The school is very generous and gives a scholarship to all students who maintain a GPA of a certain level. The higher your GPA, the more money you can get. There are also, merit and need based scholarships that have certain requirements and applications, but they are not unattainable.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I do plan to have an internship. It is required for my major, as it is for most majors. I look forward to it because it will give me the real-world opportunity to apply what I've learned my 4 years here. It is a chance to further my understanding and share my knowledge for the benefit of others.

3 Recent Alumnus

Weather: The weather here can either be gorgeous or brutal, depending on the time of year. I love it from late-April to November. The summers are great. However, if you're here for winter (late november to march) good luck. It can be SOOO cold as you walk between classes in the wind and cold. It can be done though. I feel it is a tribute to the school that so many students come here and graduate despite the adverse weather. There is something amazing that keeps us here... that make it all worth it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I love all my classes. There were a few that were hard to stick with at the time, but I know the things I learned are useful and I already am applying so much of what I learn. The Child Development major has amazing teachers and I learn so much-- they are passionate about and experienced in their subjects. I love that the church and gospel are tied into nearly every class.

5 College Senior

Transportation: For the most part everything is in walking distance, married housing is a little bit farther away than single housing so sometimes you need a car. But food and gas prices are cheap in Rexburg and Idaho Falls is only a few minutes away if you need something from the mall.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Although the school is mostly made up of students from the LDS religion there are others who are not affiliated with the Mormon church. There are also a lot of students from other countries because tuition is very inexpensive and the professors are great.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather at BYU-I is bipolar! One minute it's sunny, the next it's raining. Overall it is windy and cold but the summers can get pretty hot.

Drug Safety: As part of the honor code we are to "abstain from alcoholic beverages". Overall there is a drug free school policy.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: This grade is entirely excluding the fact that we do not have sports teams to compete with other universities. This fact may seem disappointing to many and a low letter grade may have resulted, but after much deliberation I conclude that the existing athletics here at BYU-I deserve much praise and ravings.

The program is very dynamic and productive on a multitude of levels. The first being that it is student led and operated, allowing for interested business or recreational management majors to experience the development and organization of programs, exercise health majors the opportunity to coach and be involved in their chosen field and interest early on, and the chances for unconventional events or sports to take root at a mere suggestion and collaboration to create something new.

The second reason for supporting our sports program involves the athletes themselves. With a wider variety of sports divided into competitive and noncompetitive sports, everyone can find what they are looking for. Want to play without too much time commitment and/or hate practices? Join the noncompetitive who play in once a week at varying skill levels. Want to feel the intensity of the game by playing competitively and sharpening your skills through weekly practices and games on the weekends? Try out for one of many teams drafted together to form a league. Its an all around good system for all students looking to play while still having time for life and school.

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.
