5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A Bakery With Much Variety – The guys here are ver well rounded. They know a bit of everything, and most are up for anything. I have met people not only from all over he world, but also people who have traveled or studied different parts of the world. Guys here suprise you in things hey know. Some of them can cook better than my mom! Most guys are bilingual, in english and all sorts of exotic languages. They are modest, honest, sensetive and respectful. I can not think of another place with better guys.

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg Dinning – Everything student friendly( money wise) is located within a walking distance of school. The favorite local places to eat are Sammy's, and teryaki express. Everything is cheap and very good.

Transportation: Most apartments are right by campus. You can drive if you want to. I personally don't think it's worth it to buy a parking permit, so if you live far off campus you should just get the free permit. There are no buses. You can ride your bike, walk, use a scooter, or drive to school. Make sure you know where you parking permit is allowed if you get one, since you'll get a pretty big ticket. If you want to get out of Rexburg and visit Utah, you can get on the Salt Lake Express. It isn't too expensive in the long run. There is also something called a bulletin board where people who need rides or can offer rides post. So if you have a car you can split the cost, or you can offer someone some gas money to get you where you need to go.

3 College Senior

Administration: Pretty Strict – It's strict, but those who apply already know it. It's a private church school. There are curfews, and your roommates are encouraged to report you if you aren't in on time for curfew. Members of the opposite sex are not allowed in your apartment past the living room and kitchen. Many apartments don't even allow members of the opposite sex into the bathrooms since they are further into the apartment. You have to follow the honor code and be chaste, which again shouldn't be a surprise to those applying to the school. It is stricter than BYU Provo. The only reason I rate it a B is because it is strict but you should already expect it. As a church school you can't bring any drugs, alcohol, or tobacco into your apartment. Also, you have to live in approved housing. There are very few exceptions. Because of that you will get overcharged for the area you're living in.

4 College Senior

Technology: There are printing stations in every building, but some are harder to find than others. The wireless access is readily available on campus and it is pretty fast, rarely lagging, but sometimes they are a little touchy and hard to access immediately. It's useful to have your own laptop since a lot of assignments are posted online or need to be done online. That being said, there are a lot of computers that can be used on campus. There are a lot of printing areas on campus but it's nice to have your own printer as backup and they are for sell pretty cheap on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: i didn't have any trouble getting into the medical assisting program. i had all the prereqs done i just signed up and took off running. health science was the same. of course, health science isn't hard to get into. most programs aren't except nursing. get really good grades if you plan to apply to the program

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: most of students dont really spend a lot of time at "clubs" and there aren't any bars in town. rexburg is mostly LDS and the majority of students see a movie, go bowling, play sports, go sledding or hang out and watch a movie or play games. there is a curfew and "guys out" or "girls out" so if you're into partying rexburg probably isnt the plac for you

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: there are lots of different places for both men and woman to live off campus. most places are reasonably priced and maintain their apartments well. i only lived in two different complexes during the 5 years i lived in rexburg and i loved both. close to campus good management reasonabe price nice apartments and fun people!

3 College Sophomore

Parking: its hard to find a campus parking spot because the weather is usually terrible. snow and ice means those who live further from campus (ie married housing) drive often and those who live closer to campus can never find a spot after 8 am

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: i never lived on campus, i always lived in an apartment off campus. from what i hear the dorms are fun but not super spacious glad i never had to live in one

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus Grub – there is a small restaurant with sandwiches, chinese food and ice cream right across the street from campus. in the main student building there is a cafeteria style place you can find salad, pizza, burgers, salad bar, etc the food is pretty good and reasonable. lots of places to sit fun atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Get Good Grades. BYU-I already has an excellent educational value for the price you pay. For those who work hard and have excellent grades, academic scholarships are automatically applied to their tuition. There is a plethora of help for applying for the FAFSA. Help finding additional sources for scholarships is scarce; however, when a scholarship is sent to the school from another source, it is taken care of as smoothly as funds provided by the school or government.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Lot's of White People – For the most part, people on campus are friendly and always willing to meet new people. While there is ethnic diversity on campus, about 60-70% of the student population is white. Meeting a student who is not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is virtually unheard of. All students are expected to remain modestly dressed and groomed in lieu of a school uniform. In the business program especially students are encouraged to wear professional clothing on campus. Basketball shorts and sweats on campus are strongly discouraged.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Supply Chain Management – Every class is designed to help you get internships. There are dozens of companies that regularly take interns from this university with the expectation that our contributions will be excellent. BYU-I has a very good reputation. The work load is doable, but can often be taxing. Contributing to classroom discussions is expected - it is strongly encouraged that you will seek out learning from sources outside of the classroom and bring your findings into the classroom in order to cultivate an atmosphere in which "real-world" learning can take place, keeping it fresh and avoiding the rut of developing an atmosphere of academic dogmatism that has little relevancy outside academia.

3 College Junior

Parking: Walking Encouraged – The university encourages walking but there are parking spaces. You need diferent permits to park in different sections. Not to expensive.

4 College Junior

Administration: BE GOOD – You are expected to dress neatly and modestly. It's not bad for most people. No tolerance for drinking, drugs, stealing or cheating!

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Excelent Exccept for Agricultural – Great learning resourses. No competitive sports teams although excelent free gym. They are getting rid of the horse program. The agricultural program is lacking and the administrators don't seem to think they matter.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Affordable, Quality Education – The professors here are really good, and they have great connections for finding potential internships and jobs. Education is affordable and scholarships are usually easy to get.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Small Town Atmoshere – Rexburg has a great small-town atmosphere with very little crime. There are grocery stores nearby campus and a lot of outdoor activities to do. Yellowstone is about one hour away, and the Teton mountains and Jackson Hole are nearby.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: International Studies Major – The international studies major is new to the school, but there are very qualified professors who oversee the major. There is also a great networking program. Currently, there is a study abroad program in Beijing, China; and they are working on developing other study abroad programs. A language minor is required for an international studies major. Languages that are offered are: Russian, German, Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese.

College Senior

Party Scene: being that byu-i is predominantly LDS (mormon) there is no "nightlife". the students find ways to entertain each other and thats sports, a few good off campus lounge dance parties on the weekends, working out, movies, bowling, mini golf, eating, and being creative with activities and entertainment.

4 College Senior

Technology: The school offers MANY computers for students to use and have great deals/plans for laptops. The printers are great and you only need 4 cents to print something. The internet speed can be a bit bitter but other than that, computer labs are great and around all over campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Living in Idaho can be boring and athletics/sports are what keep us, students, motivated and happy. In the winter, we're forced to play inside the BYU-Idaho Center along with EVERY other student that's also trying to play a sport they like. It's chaotic and cramped in the gym. I understand the school has made many renovations and has expanded these sort of facilities for us to enjoy but they're also trying to enroll more students. If they want more students and have us enjoy our time at BYU-I, we'd appreciate space to play.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Do You Like to Ski? If so, you'll fit in great. Rumor has it that some students have skied to class or worn their ice skates. It's Idaho, so no one should be that surprised. Make sure you have a warm coat, ear muffs and good shoes. While your peep toe-wedge sandals might be cute with your outfit, you'll probably fall and break your leg if you wear them November through April.

Administration: Honor Code – Here at BYU-Idaho each student signs an honor code. They know the rules and "strict" guidelines before the come. Those who complain should choose another school. The rules are here to help us get the best education possible while helping to mold us into future leaders.

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.
