4 College Freshman

Local Area: Small Indeed – Indeed Rexburg is quite small, most of the time as students have to come up with things to do in order to have fun, and have the time that's half the fun. Idaho is considered a scenic state, so for sure there are a lot of beautiful sites to go and look at.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Great Enviroment – BYU-I is an amazing school if anyone has a desire to learn who they truly are. Help is always available and the environment is meant to help us grow not only knowledge based growth but also spiritual growth.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: All Sorts of People – There are all varieties of ethnic/racial backgrounds along economic backgrounds. The campus is very diverse in most aspects however most of the students are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

3 College Freshman

Academics: New to It All – I've just finished registering for all my classes so I'm not sure what the program or being apart of the major is like, but I have heard good things and am eager to learn and participate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love It – I absolutely love BYU-Idaho. It is the perfect place for me and I can't imagine being anywhere else to get my education. When I got accepted I wasn't sure if I really wanted to go, but I did, and there hasn't been a day that I regretted that decision. The academics are challenging, the people are awesome and I love the environment.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Good Clean Fun – A lot of people say that there is nothing to do in Rexburg, Idaho and those are the people that aren't creative in coming up with fun things to do. There are lots of places downtown that are good for eating out with friends, and dates. There is always someone throwing a party somewhere and there are lots of school sponsored activities that are a lot of fun. The fun is clean and original.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Kind, Understanding Professors – Before going to BYU-Idaho I always joked that the professors there must be really nice because of their religion. After going there for two semesters I realized how right I was, but they aren't kind because of their religious affiliation. They honestly want their students to succeed and they are willing to answer questions, talk personally and work with students to ensure that that happens.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It is hard to get a scholarship through the school unless you have a really high GPA. The form is really easy to fill out. You are also rewarded scholarships through your majors department.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe, I have never had an issue of feeling unsafe. I can walk home from the Library at 11:30 at night and still feel safe. I have heard of a few crimes but that is very rare and when they do happen everyone knows about them because it is very rare to hear about them.

5 College Junior

Academics: Animal Science – Brigham Young Idaho has an amazing program. I love all my professors, they are very willing to work with their students. The classes give you a lot of hands experience.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Wireless Access on Campus – typically speaking, wireless access while linked into a campus server is burning fast. Off campus however it's a small nightmare.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Customized Education for Personal Employability – BYU-Idaho offers rigorous curriculum in every major. Expectations for performance and involvement in class are high, generally speaking. Classes required to graduate may be negotiated and can cover very broad or very specific areas of expertise so long as there is a logical connection as to how they will help the student be more attractive to prospective employers.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: We are mostly Latter Dat Saints and we are very accepting of all people of differing ethnicities, economic backgrounds, political beliefs, and religious beliefs.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The Campus Is Relatively Close to All Housing Facilities. The campus is very close to all housing complexes so walking is an easy opporunity. There are not many paking spaces, but it's not a big deal because walking is an option. There are no shuttles or buses to or on campus, but the campus is small so they aren't needed.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are many facilities that focuss on specific careers that allow for great learning experiences.

4 College Junior

Academics: The Animal Science Major Is Fun, Interactive, and Rewarding. The program requires students to be disciplined and do their best. We are taught in the classroom as well as in labs for hands-on learning. The teachers are great and they work hard to help you to succeed.

5 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Don't You Dare Break the Honor Code – If you're signing up to come to BYUI, you'd better be prepared to keep the rules. The Honor Code is strict, but it's not that big of a commitment if you're here for the right reasons. You can get kicked out of school for breaking the rules, so don't even try it. Just don't be stupid and you'll be fine.

2 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: There Is None. There are occasionally some pretty cool dance parties, but those are few and far between. Other than those rare occurences, the only really cool hangout spot is Sammy's. There are NO clubs in Rexburg, so if you're coming here for the nightlife, forget about it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Great People – The guys at BYU-I are a pretty great bunch - clean cut and RM's for the most part, which is really nice. Lots of them are either country boys from Idaho or the athletic preppy type...
The girls are just as widely varied as the guys. Lots of really cute, well-dressed girls, but a lot on the other end of the spectrum as well.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Campus Life – Every class starts with a prayer, there's an Honor Code, there are a lot of fun things to do, we have Family Home Evening, a temple not too far from campus, and there are a lot of wards for church.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Eating Options – There aren't a lot of places to eat at, but there are quite a few. Some of them cost more than others, and there's a variety

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Life at School – There's a great atmosphere and tons of social life activities.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No Drugs AT ALL – Aside from prescription drugs. But drug abuse is strictly prohibited, and the Honor Code doesn't tolerate any such behavior. If students are found behaving this way they are removed from school.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Rexburg Is Cold – It snows a lot here but classes are never cancelled but its beautiful in the spring through fall .Rexburg is a nice place to live in then, but unless you love the snow, winter track is cold

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The cost depends on your taste, I mean if you just somewhere to sleep its around 500 to 1500 for a semester. the 500dollar per semester apartment is good but management is really slow. maintenance takes a long time but the ones that range from 800 to 1500 are relatively good.Note most of the off campus complex have only shared rooms no private rooms.OFF CAMPUS HOUSING MUST BE APPROVED BY THE 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.
