4 College Sophomore

Academics: the professors are very interested in the students and get to know them on a name basis if at all possible.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Private School... Pretty Much Says It All. Rexburg is a conservative town that generally shuts down around ten at night. There are a few places to hang out but most students don't really "party" like most regular university people do. Curfew is strictly enforced and students go camping on weekends in the summer. It's great for "home-body's", not so much for "party-ers".

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Pretty Good for a Rather Small School – BYU-I's facilities are always improving. the new BYU-I Center hosts an incredible conference center with a great indoor track over the gym. The Manwaring Center is the place to go for food and such. It's a little expensive but they know how to please!

3 College Junior

Academics: Creative Writing Emphasis at BYU-Idaho – This English Emphasis is great for those that really love english and all the mechanics of the field. Professors are awesome and encourage students a lot! The advising center is great for help with classes and finding internships and fellow students are always willing to lend a hand.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Extreme Strictness – If any drugs are being used or anything that damages the honor code, and immediate dismissal of the student will be conducted and be sent home unable to return to school; until the problem is fixed or never.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments Are Rip-Offs! Apartments off-campus are nice to the fact that they are close to school and make it easy to just walk to campus. But they are in order to follow through with the BYU-I approved housing (meaning certain rules apply in order to live there) it seems like you are unble to govern your own life. Because itssuch a small town its sometimes hard to find apartments for rent and the prices are ridiculous. Most apartment you pay in bulk (all money up front) and if you want to pay per month it has a set up fee for fifty dollars. The apartments usually cost aroung $300 to $400 a month for six roommates! If any where else it would be $200 for just four roommates. They are really scaming college students and taking the money rather than fixing the appliances or remodeling the building(which often need to be done.)

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the dorms are small and you feel almost claustrophobic living in them, there is no kitchen, and they dont have a very good atmosphere in them, that being said i guess you get what you pay for. off campus housing is the way to go with so many options and all of the housing within walking distance to campus there are a plethora of options and all for pretty cheap....for a semester they can cost anywhere from 900-1500 a semester, yes a semester.
off campus housing is the best social atmosphere you can get here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: What a Great Atmosphere – at brigham young university idaho campus, the professors are extremely helpful and help maintain e very positive atmosphere on campus. the best part of attending school at byu-i is the quality education and great faculty to help you out. i love it because i have felt that all my professors care about me as an individual and they want everyone to succeed.

5 College Junior

Academics: Lets just say the president of the school is the former dean of Harvard business school. Therefore, a big emphasis is placed in this area of study.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The parking here is a little limited, however, I would have to say that it beats any other school...anywhere. The passes are reasonable in price, and the parking lots are all pretty close to the buildings.

4 College Junior

Academics: They are great! I really feel that they are more worried with how I am learning, than with getting through everything. I love it.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Rexburg is a medium sized town, and really doesn't have a whole lot to offer. The school, however, is fantastic. There is always something going on, which is nice since the city is a little dull.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The Inside Scoop at BYU-Idaho – What impressed me the most at my semester at BYU-Idaho was how easy it was to get involved. It's so easy to join any sports team, and everybody just accepts everybody. It's a very loving atmosphere. The feeling you get on campus is that everybody wants to help you succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls and BYU-Idaho – Let's be honest - all the single guys and girls at BYU-Idaho are looking to get married as quickly as possible. The number one common interest among the student body is getting married and starting a family. That said, the social life is pretty buzzin', as far as a Mormon social life can be. There's a lot of dating going on. Most everybody looks clean cut and fairly attractive. There's a dress code, so guys have to be clean-shaven and girls need to be comely and well-groomed.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: English Major and BYU - Idaho – The teachers are very friendly and understanding. The work is just right as far as difficulty - I feel I'm being challenged to beat my personal best but it's not so overwhelming that I get discouraged.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's always windy in Rexburg. The summers are really fun but in the winter it snows a lot and the snow stays there until April or so.

2 College Junior

Parking: There aren't a lot of parking available on campus, but housing is so close that you rarely need it. If however you are going to visit someone, it's impossible to find somewhere to park with out getting a ticket or getting towed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I Don't Know – I don't know how living on campus is. I have always lived off.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Great Values – There are great values. And everyone can find someone to be friends with! I love it here!!! :) :)

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The Crossroads is an amazing place to eat or just hang out with friends. It is equipped with many different styles of food suitable for any students fancy at the given time. The cashiers are mostly students and they do a great job!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Everything Is Amazing – The facilities on campus are great. There are numerous gyms for playing volleyball, basketball or other sports. There is a gym for the students to work out in with exercise machines, there are also different exercise classes offered to students like zumba! The library is great, with different floors for different kinds of studying.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors here, and the curriculum are like no other. The professors especially want to see their students succeed. The workload is very tolerable, and tutoring is offered for free! The campus is beautiful offering wonderful places to study outside during the warmer months.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics here are awesome! I have participated on ultimate frisbee teams and soccer teams, they are so fun! I love being able to go play with everyone, no one is mean. Even if your team loses, everyone is having fun.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime is almost nonexistent, the city is very safe, police are very kind, and campus is always safe and calm.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Political Science – It is a great major, many of the professors are very experienced and have traveled all throughout the world

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.
