Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay, it's really nice because it's convient to campus and stores and such, but there's not a lot of social things in the dorms liek there is off campus. The cost is low, and it's been great for a first semester, but next semester I'm moving off campus.

Drug Safety: No Alcohol, Smoking, or Drugs – The city of Rexburg has a No Bar policy/ban. Which is good considering that BYU-Idaho is an LDS run school. So if you want alcohol you need to go to the local grocery store. But if you do there is a very good chance that two things will happen. 1) you'll need to talk to your Bishop 2) You will get kicked out of school. BYU-Idaho has an Honor code that is enforced in my opinion a bit too much. The whole no alcohol, smoking, and drugs, I like but then there is how late you can stay out with and till. As well as a ban on all shorts (except for sports/exercising) on campus.

Technology: So if you want a Library computer, there are certain times during the day that you will be able to find a computer, but for the most part every computer is taken... And for any mac users the computers programs aren't up to date, and there is only a hand full of them. However BYU-Idaho does have various other locations with computers to use, again the problem is that most of those locations are being used by classes during the day, and are available from 5pm to 10pm.

Academics: Good and Bad – I like BYU-Idaho for the ability to make new friends. I love the fact that teachers will set the general rules, and then on an individual level work with each student so that student can progress and become better. The work load isn't to hard, and as long as you study the test aren't that hard either. While the city isn't to populated.... (if you like big cities you'll feel clamped up), there are a lot of activities to do on campus. The one big flaw is their website, it is not easy to navigate so its easy to get lost, and sometimes... a lot of times their grading program they use glitches. Lastly they have an honor code, which is very strictly enforced, it has its own pro's and negatives.

Overall Experience: The Best School You Could Ask for – College is expensive, its stressful, its full of distractions and it is the most important thing for our future. I highly recommend BYU Idaho for consideration of a college to set you in the right track for your future.
BYU Idaho is cheaper than most any other college you'll find but offers just as much as another schools in it's on campus resources. It's a school associated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. You will find yourself surround by students with focus, drive, motivation, and a work hard ethic.
I love my experience here and have enjoyed everything I have learned. The teachers are excellent with small classes so you can have the focus that every student needs from its teachers. I can't recommend a better place to get your education then BYU Idaho.

Guys & Girls: The Social Life – BYU Idaho is a school of the clean cut look. It is expected of the students to maintain a clean look. Meaning we are as guys to be free of facial hair and maintain a clean appearance. Girls to be modest in dress and appearance.
The ideal of this is to maintain a higher value of appearance is to keep the school in a professional setting for the students. All things that will help students for when they are to enter into the competitiveness of jobs after college.
Being a guy myself BYU Idaho is an excellent place if you are looking for dating or finding that special someone to take on your family name. There are plenty more girls then guys at BYU Idaho so as a guy your options are open to a huge selection of gorgeous young ladies with good standards.
You will never feel alone at BYU Idaho. If you stay involved there are many opportunities to make friends everywhere you go. Your guaranteed to boost you Facebook friend numbers after a few weeks into a semester at BYU Idaho.

Campus Quality: Excellent Campus – The BYU-I campus is a beautiful campus. Construction has been going on for awhile which makes movement around difficult at times but overall it has been wrapping up and ending in great additions to the school.
Campus is full of fun and many free activities. Free always being something perfect for college students. Also with a small fee you can set out on many outdoor adventures that the campus offers.
My personal favorite on this school is that it is a school of high standards. Everyone is expected to have high morals. We are to stay true to our honor code at all times.
What better place to study then a college all about your education with a safe and productive learning environment.
I love BYU Idaho!

Campus Quality: Great Social Atmosphere – There is a great feeling going to school here. Everyone is friendly and willing to help wherever you need it. The social scene is alive everywhere and there's plenty of parties going on every night.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Strict Honor Code – The Honor Code is strict and it is enforced by everyone, because everyone agreed to it on entering the school. It is hard to get away with Drugs or Alcohol use but everyone is left to make their own decisions about it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: No Worries About Safety – There will always be creepy people, but I've never felt bothered or threatened on campus. Security can be pretty harsh when it comes to parking in the proper locations, but it's a completely safe place to work and go to school.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: it is a very tolerable atmosphere towards all nationalities.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winter Is Rough – In the winter they don't plow their roads. So, the roads ice over and your car has no choice but to slip and slide. The snow sometimes piles higher than the markers on the fire hydrants. Temperatures are horrendous sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Difficult – Off campus apartments are hard. The good apartments are priced so ridiculous that only the rich and famous can afford them. Then the ones normal people get into are so rundown that you live there with your eyes closed trying not to pay attention to what is around you. If you want a decent place, you have to take out a student loan just to live comfortably.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Library Is Great – It has a great atmosphere and really invites the spirit. The people there are generally nice and willing to help you get where you need to go. The facilities are nice. There could be more computers, but overall it is a pretty nice place to be.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: School Does Not Offer a Lot – They have one campus scholarship and that is for student with 30 or more credits. If you get at least a 3.7, you are only getting a fourth of the tuition off. So if you are an incoming freshman, you must look into scholarships outside of the school

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Skip the on-Campus Dances – Remember the church dances you went to as a youth in high school? The church dances are just like them, ask anyone on campus. Try to avoid those go to off campus apartment dances if youre in the mood for a dance. However the dating life is great. The guys are such gentlemen and first dates on campus are usually group dates so they are hardly awkward.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Computer Labs Are All Over Campus – There are so many computer labs and most students have their own computers/laptops so there are seldom moments where all of them are taken. There are constantly full inthe library; however, there is the building next-door which has many vacant computers.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: Just Look Around – The transportation is great. Buses are everywhere at pretty much all times. There are numbers to call for transportation services at any hour of the day or night.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Pass on the Clubbing – I think nightlife is more for the 21 and older people, and also for the non-LDS people. BYU-Idaho is a religion based school, and partying is not allowed. We find ways to have fun during the day and in the evenings, but night is for sleeping.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Modest Is Hottest – I appreciate how modestly and stylishly everyone on campus is dressed. Every person I meet is friendly, outgoing, and very willing to help in any way that they can. You can walk around and never will you see some outfit that makes you cringe and turn away. The women never have skanky outfits, and the men are proper and incredibly handsome.

Campus Quality: It Is a Private Religious University. The fact the school is owned by the LDS church makes tuition much cheaper. It is not as exciting as some places and has lots of rules, but you do get a major discount in tuition and fees.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everything Is Intramural. No Official Sports Teams. BYU-Idaho has lots of intramural sports teams for people to play on. They do lack official school teams though which is kind of a let down for me personally.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very Safe School. on Top of Security. The security and safety at BYU-Idaho is very good. I have never felt I had to worry for my safety or the safety of my property.

4 College Junior

Administration: Intended for High LDS/Christian Standards – Every thing about the school is intended for those committed to living a chaste and moral life. If you want that atmosphere then this is a great school for you, if not you'll hate it.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Not Too Little, Not Too Much. Everything on campus has a specific purpose, nothing goes unused. At the same time there isn't a need for anything more, or if there is the build it right away.

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.
