5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I haven't had much experience with the financial aid office. But they are pretty good at letting us know scholarship opportunities, etc.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug Use – Very little drug use or abuse. It's part of the school code.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: close to campus and off campus housing, but not very good cost wise. It's pretty popular though. Good shakes and food.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking situation at the school is okay, they are very strict about where you can and cannot park. You need a permit and you get booted if you don't watch where you park.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The nightlife at school is pretty cool, there are always dances going on at the school every Thursday. There are always activities that the school plans. You just need to look, but there is always something to do.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The computers at the school are great! They have a good quality and sometimes they do maintenance, but the school gives you an advance to when the system will be down. There is always a spot open for a computer and the printers are usually open. They have WiFi which is nice.

Campus Quality: BYU-Idaho: a Very Unique Campus – Here at BYU-Idaho we have high standards and we are required to live the honor code. Here BYU-Idaho is known as BYU I do :) It's been said that if you really want to get married then all you have to do is come here and you'll get married pretty quickly. I don't know if i believe all of that but you do see many couples on campus. We also don't have competitive sports. We do have sports here but we don't compete with other schools. We want to focus more on the academic opportunities here. The employment availability is there but since there are so many students the job spots go quickly if your not looking. However if you are in a financial situation then the school will try it's best to help you.

5 College Student

Campus Food: BYU-Idaho Food Availability – On campus we have a great "food court" if that's what you want to call it. There is so much variety from chinease, italian, to the normal hamburger with fries. There's a salad bar and also dessert bar and all the food is really good and the price isn't over the top.

4 College Student

Local Area: Rexburg Is a Great Place to Be – Here in Rexburg we have a pretty clean atmosphere. We have very few if any bars here. We do have restaurants and movie theaters here and we also have parks and dancing here. The local attitude to us students is really great. People who live here in Rexburg don't have a problem with us and we can usually go anywhere we need to without any problems. Granted there are some students that are obnoxious and cause problems but there are VERY few of them.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code Is Always Under Pressure – the honor code includes dress and behavior standards and many students find in confining and ridiculous.The point is, obey the honor code if you wish to attend. If you're going to cry about it then you don't want to be here bad enough.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: there really isn't a drug scene at all. I have yet to hear of there being drug usage in the house and never on campus. Alcohol is near impossible to obtain so there is really no drinking at all. Everyone who attends adheres to an honor code which does not allow for drinking or drug use so there is no pressure to use either.

1 College Junior

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity on BYU -- Idaho campus. There are a lot of people who are white. Almost everyone is LDS. This is to be expected since the school is a private church school. A majority of the political beliefs would be Conservative.

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg Dining – The restaurants in Rexburg, Idaho are great! The favorite place I like to go is to New Fongs (a Chinese food place)or Gringos (a Mexican food place). They have good quality and quantity of food. Rexburg also has the popular fast food chains: Taco Bell, subway, Wendy's, and many others.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Cross Roads – The Cross Roads on campus is the food place to go. The food is not the greatest, but it is not the worst food I have ever tasted. It is expensive and I do not eat there very often. Usually when I go to eat it is between classes or before classes when I do not have time to go home and grab something. It is a very social like atmosphere. I would suggest going to spend time there to kill some time between classes, but I would not suggest a meal plan.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My Overall Exerience – I really like going to a school with many people who have similar beliefs as I do. I like the small class sizes and teachers who are there when you need them. The atmosphere among the students is friendly and helpful. I love going to BYU-I.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is mostly fast food but I can't say much, because one I don't really have the money to eat out much, and two when I do I try not because of how unhealthy it is for the body. But I do think that the off-campus dining is satisfactory.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not much of an athlete but I know that our school offers inter-mural sports, and they also offer classes teaching the different aspects of the sports. I have taken some health science classes that have greatly increased my desire to keep myself healthy and active. Other than that I haven't been involved in many other athletics activities

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: My Unique School – BYU-I is a very unique school for a few specific reasons. First off it is a private religious school so our religion is promoted and talked about during classes. Its a very interesting experience combining two completely different aspects of my life into one. This school is located in a extremely small town in Idaho, which for most people is a new experience. It can be quite a culture shock, but something that everyone should experience.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Favortie Experiences – The most meaningful class I have taken at this school was my first Art History class. I learned so much from a wonderful teacher. This is one of my most memorable and favorite experiences at this school so far. I learned this history of different people and their culture through their art, which is what I enjoy most.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Food on Campus at Brigham Young University-Idaho – There are a variety of different types of food to eat on campus. Everything from frozen yogurt to a pulled pork sandwich. Of what I have tried, everything is pretty tasty. It can put a dent in your wallet if you plan on eating there frequently. The best place to eat on campus, at BYU-Idaho, are the bagels. They have sandwich bagels and bagels with cream-cheese, both coming in a variety of flavors. When I'm on the run, I can always find something filling and tasty to go.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Honor Code – Be honest
Live a chaste and virtuous life
Obey the law and all campus policies
Use clean language
Respect others
Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and substance abuse
Participate regularly in church services
Observe Dress and Grooming Standards
Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the Honor Code

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg Idaho – Great shopping areas, close to the mall and many other shopping areas. Many cultural events for all ethnic background. Students are treated with great honor and respect from residents.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best Value for the Money & Best University Experience – I have been to several colleges and universities in several states. You won't find a less expensive college that is: competitive, reputable, give you your money's worth and is uplifting all-in-one (trust me)! The few downsides are that some degrees (such as International Studies) are in their infancy and their foreign language department is limited. Those are the only two things I could say that aren't positive. This is a great university and you won't regret attending here.

3 College Junior

Weather: Cold, Freezing, Icy and Sometimes Decent – Middle of November until March, you had best be adapted to cold weather before arriving. If you aren't into the outdoor scene in the cold, stay bundled up and go straight to class. If you enjoy skiing, sledding, camping and or other activities during the winter=you'll love it in Rexburg. When it's not Winter, it's mild and decent. Almost never gets about 90. It is BEYOND dry, so if you're used to humidity you won't like how your skin will crack and you may get a bloody nose/sensitivity.

Parking: Parking can be good for some and bad for others. You do need to get there earlier to get better parking or just show up as classes are getting done. Also the there parking is split from north to south. the north has better parking but the south has more parking. The cost is not that bad.

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.
