2 College Freshman

Academics: I Do Not Reccomend Philosophy Majors Go Here – Being a Philosophy major at Brigham Young University Idaho is harder than if i were to have another more ordinary major. The program is very limited and the university does not list a recommended course sequence like all of the other majors. I wish the program was more diverse.

Weather: Snow Anyone? Really they can't do much to control the weather but if you don't like wind and snow I would avoid Rexburg. They do a good job at keeping the grounds shoveled and ice free

1 College Senior

Athletics: BYU-Idaho has no athletics that compete at a University level. They say they want the university to focus on being purely academic and not spend money on sports programs. Personal belief is they don't want to create a program to compete against the school in Provo. They do have sports that you can play in both competitive and inter-mural but they are rarely worth watching.

Academics: Administration Is Lacking – Unfortunately the administration at this school does not seem to understand that students are customers at their school. When transferring to Brigham Young University-Idaho they refused to help my wife transfer her credits from Brigham Young University-Provo. We spent a better part of three months getting tossed from one building to another trying to find someone who could help her see what she needed to do start school there. Finally after a lot of effort we were able to start to get credits transferred.

This experience is typical at BYU-Idaho many of the employees in administrative services feel that their time is better spent sitting at their desks passing you between one another trying to avoid any work. I have never seen any professionals that are more lazy than at this school.

Scholarships: Really Easy! If you do your best and keep your GPA up, you automatically get a full-ride, half-ride, or a quarter paid!

2 College Junior

Parking: Parking is fairly costly. You can only buy one permit and are designated to a certain area, so if your classes are on different ends of campus you can only park on one end. There are not very many spots for you to park in the central areas so you end up walking anyways. If you get there late it is hard to find a spot so you end up driving around awhile and can even be late to class.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Chemistry program is really good. The teachers really know what they are teaching and know how to teach well. There is a chemistry society where you can go and do service in the community and just be around others who have the same interests you have. The only downfall in my opinion is the technology in the labs is under par. My high school had more equipment than here.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As much as it was hard to balance social life and school at the same time. It was such a good experience and it's made me realize that I still have a lot to learn and by going to this university I'll be able to gain that experience.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The professors here at this university are always focused on the concepts and they always tend to help out their students. It's always good to know that there are teachers who care. I'd say the best classes to take that they offer are the foundation classes. It's necessary and it's also fun to know interesting facts.

Campus Quality: My school is very unique in that it is a church school, which incorporates religion into almost every class. We have a lot of easy ways to make friends through church. It is in a small town, so we come up with creative things to do, and do a lot of outdoor activities.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Being a church school, we don't have any visible usage or problems with drugs and alcohol. We sign an honor code before coming to school, so if there are issues, students are usually kicked out.

3 College Junior

Academics: Elementary Education – I am an Elementary Education Major at BYU-I and I feel like the program is pretty strong. I have had some classes that I have really loved, and a lot of the teachers are very personable. For the most part, they take the time to make sure you get the education you need, wihout being overly strict on grades. They care more about the experience, which I really like.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Yummy, Affordable, and Plenty of Variety – The food options are great! There is a wide variety, ranging from Mexican to Subs, from hamburgers to pizza. Very affordable, and you can pay from your student ID card. You can also use your ID card at vending machines. Great meal plan options, but optional. Overall, it is wonderful!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are alot of options for what ever kind of food or anything you are seeking.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Security – I have never felt at all threatened while walking around on campus by myself.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: the professors are very interested in the students and get to know them on a name basis if at all possible.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Private School... Pretty Much Says It All. Rexburg is a conservative town that generally shuts down around ten at night. There are a few places to hang out but most students don't really "party" like most regular university people do. Curfew is strictly enforced and students go camping on weekends in the summer. It's great for "home-body's", not so much for "party-ers".

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Pretty Good for a Rather Small School – BYU-I's facilities are always improving. the new BYU-I Center hosts an incredible conference center with a great indoor track over the gym. The Manwaring Center is the place to go for food and such. It's a little expensive but they know how to please!

3 College Junior

Academics: Creative Writing Emphasis at BYU-Idaho – This English Emphasis is great for those that really love english and all the mechanics of the field. Professors are awesome and encourage students a lot! The advising center is great for help with classes and finding internships and fellow students are always willing to lend a hand.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Extreme Strictness – If any drugs are being used or anything that damages the honor code, and immediate dismissal of the student will be conducted and be sent home unable to return to school; until the problem is fixed or never.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Rip-Offs! Apartments off-campus are nice to the fact that they are close to school and make it easy to just walk to campus. But they are in order to follow through with the BYU-I approved housing (meaning certain rules apply in order to live there) it seems like you are unble to govern your own life. Because itssuch a small town its sometimes hard to find apartments for rent and the prices are ridiculous. Most apartment you pay in bulk (all money up front) and if you want to pay per month it has a set up fee for fifty dollars. The apartments usually cost aroung $300 to $400 a month for six roommates! If any where else it would be $200 for just four roommates. They are really scaming college students and taking the money rather than fixing the appliances or remodeling the building(which often need to be done.)

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the dorms are small and you feel almost claustrophobic living in them, there is no kitchen, and they dont have a very good atmosphere in them, that being said i guess you get what you pay for. off campus housing is the way to go with so many options and all of the housing within walking distance to campus there are a plethora of options and all for pretty cheap....for a semester they can cost anywhere from 900-1500 a semester, yes a semester.
off campus housing is the best social atmosphere you can get here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: What a Great Atmosphere – at brigham young university idaho campus, the professors are extremely helpful and help maintain e very positive atmosphere on campus. the best part of attending school at byu-i is the quality education and great faculty to help you out. i love it because i have felt that all my professors care about me as an individual and they want everyone to succeed.

5 College Junior

Academics: Lets just say the president of the school is the former dean of Harvard business school. Therefore, a big emphasis is placed in this area of study.

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.
