5 College Freshman

Athletics: There are so many different options for athletics on this campus. It is definitely different than competitive schools. We have both competitive and recreational leagues and with both you play against other teams within the school. These are all run by the students and can be tons of fun and also tons of hard work and commitment.

Campus Housing: Dorms... Urg. The dorms are pretty good for incoming freshman. For girls, I would highly recommend the cooking dorms otherwise you will be stuck in a small apartment with just a small fridge for your food. The social life is pretty good- it's a great way to start college because it is close to campus and you are generally with other freshman. After that though, people seem to look at you differently when you say you live in the dorms. Not good. I would recommend off campus for upper class students and close to campus.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything is pretty close, it's definitely all within walking distance. Rexburg is pretty small anyways. There are also shuttles that go to Utah and to the airport. These cost about $50, but it's clean and pretty reliable.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: None What-So-Ever! Actually, there probably is some drug and alcohol usage at this University but it definitely isn't popular or really even talked about.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus Life – The facilities on BYU-Idaho campus are outstanding. They are always remodeling to make it more update and comfortable. They recently built an auditorium. Campus has everything a college student needs, from a library and study center, to places to eat and have a good time. It's a great place to be.

5 College Student

Local Area: Energetic and High Performing – The atmosphere is amazing, the courses are fun and interactive and it's a great place to go to school.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Strict but Not – Since everyone is kind and easy going, there aren't that many policing the grounds. They mostly come out to guard the buildings and one officer will man one or two buildings. We tend to govern ourselves quite well, therefore; there is no need for someone to enforce the rules.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Well Rounded – The students at BYUI are from all over the place. And they are all super friendly. We are eager to help each other and love to hang out. Since there is the Honor code we tend to dress nicer and since we are grateful to be on the campus I'd say they're all pretty humble too.

Off-Campus Dining: Could Use Some More – I mostly shopped and bought my food at the grocery store. There were a few places around that I would go with friends but unless you had a car the food places were just too far away to walk.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most Amazing College – I absolutely love it here. The campus is gorgeous. The professors love their job. There are plenty of fun, clean and uplifting activities. There are many places to visit around the campus whether in the city or for a short road trip on the weekends. The classes are interesting and involved.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty to Choose from – Brigham Young University-Idaho has plenty of various off campus housing. They have them available for all budgets and accommodations. Their website has a list of all available with easy to access information. Most of the housing is close to the campus as well.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Fantastic Professors and Curriculum – Most professors are absolutely incredible and teach very animatedly. They are always very kind and make themselves available for help if you ever ask them. Most teachers are very good at teaching as well. The curriculum is also fantastic.
The workload is usually pretty tough, but that should be expected from college professors. The responsibility is placed largely on the students' shoulders for their own learning.
There are plenty of study areas in the library, the 2nd floor is the quiet study area that I use when I need to focus.
Free tutoring services are available from the school, which is a great opportunity.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Easy Process Once You Do It the First Time – I remember being really stressed about financial aid before my first semester, because the FAFSA money didn't show up in my account until right before the semester starts. It's fairly predictable though, and once you fill out things the first time around it's a piece of cake the rest of the time. It's easy to switch your financial aid over a semester if you change tracks as well.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Unpredictable Except in the Winter – Summer and fall are absolutely beautiful, especially on campus. Winters get really fierce though, with low temperatures down to 20 below (degrees Fahrenheit), plus wind chill. Winter shows its face off and on up through about May typically, but after a couple years you get used to it. The beautiful spring, summer and fall make up for the very cold winters.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The computers on campus seem to be crowded however I have never had a problem finding one that is open, it really depends where you look. The pharos printing system is awesome you can print from any campus computer or you can even set up your laptop to print to them. You can then print from any building on campus. I have never had a problem getting wifi on campus and its all ways super fast! I think that you can get by without a personal laptop but I would highly recommend it because the library and campus building are only open until 11:30. I have had a printer but I didn't even bring it with me this semester because I just print everything on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I see people coming from all around the world here to BYU Idaho. True that most of them are white, but I have friends here from the Philippines, Bolivia, China, Korea, Japan, Brazil, etc. It is very diverse and i love it!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Very Safe – BYU Idaho campus is very safe. They have emergency phones all over campus in case something does happen. I have never felt safer than here at BYU Idaho.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Completely Different in Every Way – I love going to school where I am. There is a strict dress and honor code. Also since it is a church school, prayers begin each class and there are weekly devotionals in a huge and impressive conference center that was just built. There are also a strong and diverse intermurral sports program. It is all around an amazing place with great people and a powerful learning situation. The president of the university was the dean of Harvard Law School and is rapidly improving the learning environment.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You Have to Get Creative – There is a lack of things to do since it is in a small town, but the dunes and parks make for fun hangout places and zones for bon-fires. There are fun things going on every night of the week and you can always find something fun going on if you want to, without too much trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Good Food and Wide Variety of Options – I personally like the food. There is lots of different types of food and the food is relatively cheap. I was impressed and the dinning hall is well positioned and is a popular place to eat and hang out. I feel the dining hall is pretty state of the art and the stage offers good entertainment. I love it personally.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys Are Just Great – There are so many good looking guys up there and most of them are just the sweetest thing too. I haven't met a disrespectful guy yet. Everyone up there is so nice though. Its never really hard to make friends.

Campus Quality: On-Campus Is Awesome – Everything on Campus is grade A in my book. The buildings are so nice and kept up. The Gym is awesome and the libraries have everything you could need. There is always something to do. You can check the Campus Calendar and all the activities are pretty cheap considering.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: The school has things of weekends but there is few little nightlife

3 College Junior

Diversity: Lots of White Students – Not a whole lot of diversity, most students are LDS and of middle class background

4 College Junior

Academics: Political Science – The teachers are all really accomplished and connect with each of their students. Most teachers know each student on a first name basis in the Political Science Dept. The teachers do expect each student to come to class prepared and if you study and do your part then they will award you with a grade that reflects how hard you worked. The teachers also have great connections as far as internships go and work with students to get the best possible ones for their specific needs and wants.

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.
