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.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Learning Model – BYU-Idaho is a very unique school. People who go there have very high standards, and all agree to live by an "honor code," which means that they dress modestly, speak cleanly, and refrain from partaking in worldly things such as drinking and watching filthy films. It is a very uplifting place with a focus of study by faith. BYU-Idaho has a learning model based on three principles: Prepare, Teach One Another, and Ponder and Prove. Students come to class prepared, ready to teach each other, and help each other to prepare to prove their understanding of the material.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The Crossroads – BYU-Idaho has a brand new dining facility, with a large variety of Asian, Mexican, American and other foods of high quality. The average meal costs about $5.50.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: A Steady Upward Course – BYU-Idaho has a state of the art 15,000 seat auditorium, unlike any other university in the U.S. Every Tuesday, all the students gather together to attend a campus devotional. The campus has grown a lot in the past 10 years, and continues to grow. The campus is located on a hill, and the region is very cold and icy most of the year. There are a lot of intramural sports and student lead activities which provide leadership opportunities to everyone. There are about 15,000 students on campus at any time, but since the school has a 3-Track system, about 22,000 students attend per year.

Parking: You need a parking permit everywhere in Rexburg. You can't park on the street without a city permit, you can't park on campus without a permit, you can't park in your apartment parking lot without a permit.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Dress Code – For every one guy there are two girls on campus. The dress code states that men must be clean shaven or have nice trimmed facial hair (no 5 O'clock shadow), no shorts, flip-flops, tank tops or any immodest clothing. Girls dresses and skirts must be at least to the knee. There are plenty of inexpensive activities on campus that are great to mix and mingle with other students.

Off-Campus Housing: All Things Considered – There are many off-campus housing but if you want your own room you have to pay through the nose to get it. Safety is good, convenience is great, landlords are great, availability depends on if you are a girl or boy. Girls have to reserve their rooms almost 4 months in advance if they want a decent place.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Very Cold. Once it starts snowing, there's pretty much always snow on the ground from then on. It can get really cold here but snow fights and trudging through the snow with a love interest make it worthwhile.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Lots of Choices – There's pizza, sub sandwiches, asian food, mexican food, meat and potatoes type food and etc. They have very convenient to-go options as well. You can put money on your i-card if you want to pay in a hurry. I wouldn't eat every meal there only because it really is cheaper to buy your own groceries instead - but if you're in between classes and don't have enough time to go home, it's the place to eat.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Actively Engaged and Friendly – There are plenty of wholesome activities and events to attend. People are very friendly and really decent. There are several places to eat and have fun close to campus. I think the only downside is that Idaho Falls, the nearest city with a mall is 30-45 min away - but you can still find a roommate or friend who's going anyway and hitch a ride with them.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: if you are looking for financial aid, this is a great school, it's the best school for the price of tuition, and if you need help there are always people in the office to help you figure out how to pay for school, and help with fafsa.

5 College Junior

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.

5 College Junior

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.

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.
