3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There are quite a few of scenic attractions that are pretty close such as Mesa Fall Scenic Byway, St. Anthony Sand Dunes, Palisades, Green Canyon, and there is a historical Teton Dam Flood Site, and you can hike "R" Mountain. There are plenty of activities to do on campus including, bowling, Ropes Course, plenty of basketball courts. The drivers in Rexburg are very pedestrian minded and it is a very safe environment. The local attitude toward students is very friendly. It is a very pleasant atmosphere and I enjoy it a lot.

3 College Junior

Technology: There are plenty of computer labs available which means you rarely have any wait times.

5 College Junior

Administration: The school is rather strict and will enforce the honor code without fail.

3 College Junior

Technology: The computers in the library are usually full, but the other computer labs are usually free, unless there is a class going on, the Internet fast enough for what you will need to do homework. I-learn ( the schools network that it uses for gading and posting assignments) has a reputation for going down when needed, especially during midterms and finals

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love being in the Special Education classes intended for my major. They are so much fun! In my class, I get to have hands-on experience with students and there isn't a huge workload. There are always opportunities for me to volunteer in the community or to work in the schools. However, there are courses that I would like to take, such as Sign Language, that are not offered here.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Being at an LDS school, I have never even seen any type of drug use here. Students here refrain from alcohol and drugs. I have never been pressured into doing any of these.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: A student from a non-LDS school would probably think the parties here are super lame. There aren't any bars or clubs in town. Sometimes there are dance parties on the weekends that are pretty fun and they are usually close to campus. Every once in a while they have one that is far away but people manage to get rides in order to go. During the week, people usually get together but I wouldn't classify it as a party. Usually during the week it's movies, studying, dinner, etc.

5 College Junior

Majors: I absolutely love this major! It is the most amazing thing I have ever done. I made the decision and ever since then I have been in love with my schooling and my classes. All of my professors are kind and considerate but smart and engaging.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is almost no drug scene on campus. It is extremely rare and not many people partake of it. In fact, it is not allowed, if you are found out, you will be removed from campus and removed from the school as a whole.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: This campus is the safest campus you could achieve! It is a small, simple, and beautiful place. I am not afraid that anything would happen, I can walk alone at night without any fear at all. I could not feel safer.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: living on campus is great. The social atmosphere is the best. This is truly the Lords campus. You can feel his spirit so strongly here, and it is great that we have a Temple here on campus. Everything is close by so you can't really get lost, and the library is excellent.

Campus Food: This is very good. They have a large range of food items, and all of them at a pretty good price.

Transportation: I don't know of any collage sponsered transportation. There is a webpage where people who are traveling can say where they are going, and offer a the give people rides for a price.

Technology: Great Super new computers, network availability is pretty good, there is maybe one building where it kind of sucks. Personal computer highly advised.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Food is pretty alright, the only problem is that it is slightly overpriced.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: Great school campus, probably the place I have felt the most safe ever. There are good security protocols such as emergency phones close to every building outside. I walk home every night after being in the library at 11 p.m.

4 College Junior

Parking: From what I hear, some campuses have very little parking. And others have it, but it is quite from from school. Parking on campus here is great! Granted, if you can walk to school from your apartment, do that! But, there is quite a bit of parking ON campus or the streets surrounding. You do have to come quite early, before 7:30 if you want to get a parking spot, but it can be done. Plus they created a free parking lot ("free" parking permit or other permit required) that is NEVER full. And its on campus, only a few minute from the closest building. Parking is great! The costs are not too high for permits, like $30 a semester. And parking fines are about $15-$35. Again, if you can walk or ride your bike (lots of places to lock up bikes), then do it. You don't NEED a car to get to campus if you live close by.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining at BYUI is pretty good. There is often community discounts going on, and almost always there is some kind of student discount. The costs are usually quite reasonable at most restaurants around town. The town is not very big, so anyone could walk to the restaurants in 30 minutes or so from campus. There is not a huge variety of restaurants, but you do get your standard fast food places for the most part (Mcdonalds, Dairy Queen, Jack in the Box, Arby's). There is several Hispanic food restaurants. Gringos will give you quite a bit of food for not very much. Then we also have Pizza places like Pizza Hut, Papa Murpheys, 5-buck-pizza, Little Ceasers, Dominos, and Craigos (called something else now though). Rexburg has lots of icecream/frozen yogurt places. Overall, a good supply of restaurants for the average student. Not many real fancy expensive places though, like Olive Garden. Although there are places like that only 40 min away in Idaho Falls. OH! And you have to try the Taco Bus's/Trucks that are around town. Great food!

4 College Junior

Scholarships: If you expect the financial aid process to be a matter of "sit back and relax", your wrong. It isn't a matter of just submitting your name either. There is usually a few papers to print and fill out. Plus you need to go online and fill out the long FAFSA application first. Honestly though, that's not very much to do for extra college cash! This is free money, that requires very little work. BYUI is already a very inexpensive college, so to have money to help cover the cost is amazing! It does help to get your applications and paperwork in ASAP, so that you can get your reward sooner. Otherwise you may not get it in time to pay the debts you owe.

Campus Housing: The dorms are accommodating for living standards. I lived in the dorms 3 years ago and they did not offer TV in each room. Also I believe that 1 bathroom for 4 girls made things difficult. Also we could not control the temperature in our rooms. On a positive note, we had a stove, and a fridge. Hot water was wonderful for long showers. The internet on campus is very fast!

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics offered at BYU-I are excellent. I believe that the curriculum offered allows the students to understand and grow from the course. I believe that it depends mostly on the students and their willingness to thrive in the course. The teachers provide one on one time , always welcome to any questions that might have. They also provide extra material such as videos, and games to help the students understand. We have access to free tutoring which provides more help.

4 College Senior

Academics: I am in the Business and Communication College, they are extremely detailed with their students. Most of the professors were CEO's and will share their experience through the glory days to the pitfalls. Most of them want to see us succeed and will enable that through interactive learning. They are always willing to discuss options and aspects of your major. I am very satisfied to be attending a university with such high standard and a level of care for their students.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: BYU-Idaho is willing to help you get the financial aid you need. However, every year I must go through a verification process to make sure I am not falsifying my documents. This occurs because my parents are between a potential divorce. It causes great agony to have to discuss my parents relationship with the department. Beside that problem everything works out well.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Most places are campus approved housing. Byui has a long list on their website that makes it easy to compare and find something.

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.
