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.

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.

1 College Junior

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.

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.
