3 College Sophomore

Technology: Once I used the computer at BYUI, I relied on the clock on the computer, which is wrong. Therefore, I was late for the class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are helpful; classmates are nice; and I enjoy studying here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: No Comment – Since I didn't play any sport, so I didn't have much to say about it.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not Enough Options – Off-campus dining options are very limited because the city of Rexburg, Idaho is very small. Most people drive to Idaho Falls for a nice sit-down restaurant. The dining options in Rexburg are subway, McDonalds, taco bell, rameras, gringos, cocoa bean, Applebee's, and a couple other places but that is basically it.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Los Muchachos – The boys are pretty picky at BYU-Idaho because the ratio of boys to girls is about 1:3. A lot of the boys are still immature but there are a few that know where they are going in life.

3 College Senior

Academics: Professors Want You to Succed – The Professors in the Health Science Program really want the students to learn the information well. Some people view this as a pain but it really isn't because they provide quality education. The Professors give additional information not needed for our tests to spark our interest and help us see new and developing career opportunities in our field.

4 College Senior

Academics: Tudor Center – I love the Tudor Center at BYU-Idaho because it is free! It helped me get a high grade in both anatomy & physiology 1 and 2. The Tudors are students who have taken the class before so they give you tips on what the professor wants to see in your performance. You can sign up for either a one time session or once a week.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: There Are Plenty If You Just Ask. To get scholarships you have to go ask your financial aid adviser and they are usually pretty helpful in getting you what you need. Also the school give tuition scholarship automatically if your cumulative GPA reaches a certain threshold, which when high enough will pay full tuition.

5 College Junior

Academics: Great Teachers – All of the teachers are very knowledgeable, many of them have studied at other well accredited universities. The classes are small so you can usually get to know your professor and receive one on one help if needed.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It's a Church School – Most who attend BYU-Idaho are there not just because of quality of education but because of the shared beliefs that most of the students have. That's not to say their isn't diversity, but it's a very religious school and extremely united on that front.

Weather: It Gets Cold – Rexburg can either be hot and dry or freezing and icy. It's always pretty windy there.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Pretty Safe – BYU-Idaho and the surrounding town is very well kept and safe, it's one of the only places that you don't have to lock your door. Sometimes people will forget that they have taken their wallets or iPods out and left them on the table, when they come back, even if it's been a few hours, no one has even bothered to move them.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I chose to live in the approved housing off campus and I love it. The apartments are kinda small sometimes and there isn't always room for everything but I very much enjoyed having roommates closer to my age in my apartment.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Students Have Clean Fun – The students at byui all follow the standards of the LDS church so the activities both on and off campus are good clean fun. To me it's a better experience to be surrounded by people who enjoy the same atmosphere that I do.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Defiantly Above Average – While filling out forms can be a bit of a hassle, and remembering to get everything turned in on time is a pain, the people are super accommodating and they'll help you work through anything you need. The office itself I'd probably give an A+, but since I just don't enjoy having to ask people for money in general, I bumped it down to an A- on a personal note.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Best Kids You'll Ever Meet. There is no shortage of friends on or off campus. Everyone is so outgoing that not only will you instantly make friends in all of your classes (especially if you do your part and get to know those sitting around you), but you'll make friends for life. And since the school runs in trimesters you get the unique experience of making new friends each semester while still running into and keeping some of the old. It's also really easy to meet boys (or girls) at any social activity, as the school is ALWAYS planning them. And, of course, going to church planned activities is an easy way to meet people as well.
And if you ever run into someone you don't get along with (a very rare occurrence), who cares? Chances are you'll find something you have in common and become friends with them soon enough, or you make friends with someone else and they'll make friends with someone more like them and you can still have a great time regardless.

And if you're looking for something more than friendship you'll find it. Plenty of people MORE than willing to have serious relationships that lead to marriage. People look for their 'happily-ever-after' here, and they find it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Best Change I Ever Made. This school is wonderful. I transferred here from the Provo campus, and it was the best decision I ever made. That is not to suggest that Provo is not awesome as well, but this school has proven to be the perfect fit for me. I'm getting the education I want as well as the education I need, but I do not have to sacrifice having somewhat of a social life as well. You'll remain busy and on your toes every day, whether it's with school, homework, friends or church callings - and you'll never once regret a single moment of it.

3 College Senior

Parking: Because it is a relatively small campus (it takes about 10 minutes to walk from one end to the other), if you park far away because there isn't a spot close to your class, you only have to get to school about 10-15 minutes early. There is a new parking system that divides up parking lots, and depending on which end of campus you're on you can get decent parking. South parking permits are cheaper and more available, so if you're on that end of campus anyway it's a good deal. North parking is much more crowded.
Campus security is very strict about ticketing if you are parking in the wrong spot. Tickets are usually about $25.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Lots of White Students – There are students from different backgrounds and countries, but a grand majority of students are white.

Guys & Girls: Good Values – Most guys and girls at BYU-Idaho have very good values and are not afraid of commitment. There are some girls who act and dress inappropriately just to get attention, but they are on every campus. There are many Utah/Idaho Mormons but also a lot of Mormons from different backgrounds.

5 College Senior

Majors: Enjoyable, Challenging and Interesting – In Applied Mathematics, the professors are amazing. Their workloads vary, but each one is willing and able to help with the material presented in class. Most of them try to present the material in a creative or memorable way so that it is easier to remember, and they are all understanding and try their best to help you get the grade you deserve. They are focused on learning, not so much grades, which is why this is the case.

3 College Senior

Majors: Easy If You Don't Have Too Many Credits – For my major in Applied Mathematics I wouldn't have had to submit an application. The only difficulties I came across were because to change my major I had to undergo a petition process that took over a month because I was over 75 credits.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I Love This School! BYU-Idaho is amazing. The classes are challenging, but not to the point that they will destroy your GPA. The environment, although strict, is extremely supportive. It's not a party school, but it's a lot of fun. It's definately an environment with good morals. I love the spiritual aspect of the school. It's amazing!

4 College Student

Majors: I Love the Elementary Education Program! BYU-Idaho is very helpful! The classes are challenging, but not too difficult. Although I am not looking for a career at this point, there are job fairs quite often through the school for education majors. There are quite a few opportunities! It's a great program and I would reccomend it to anyone!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The instructors are amazing and all of the majors are really succeeding!

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.
