4 College Freshman

Technology: Tons of pcs to do what you want but has blockers to prevent you to view inappropriate sites. Also if you are a Mac user then you use the mac computers, not that many macs but do able. I say very nice for everything from internet to printing its very good. If your close to the library then don't buy a computer. I can find a computer if when I need one.

Local Area: Rexburg is a little town where a college squeezed in and changed the quiet town to a little more noisier. Snow by thanksgiving, and warm when it can be. Mountains are close by, sand dunes for bonfires, ices caves to go exploring, the snake river by. This area is perfect for out doors people. The college offers many activities to do. This town is fairly safe, I don't feel nervous walking by myself at night but you never know. Shopping is walmart and kmart but 30 minutes away is real civilization with a mall and good restaurants and stores. Town shuts down at 10.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: From my view and with what I've experienced, all the facilities are in good condition. The only cost for the gym is the approved clothing. It'd be great if there was a wider range of free time reading books at the library, but they have good resources to assist in studying.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I Feel Safe – Just as the title says, I feel safe when I am on campus. They don't tolerate irresponsible behaviour, and just about all the students have the deisre to do well and succeed, and behave in the way that will let them succeed.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The cost is a little high but fairly good with service.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: LOVE IT!!! Ahh to much to say about this school. I wouldn't even think about going to another school. To me BYU-I is everything and more. What makes this school unique are the people. You will never meet finer people in your life time. I have absolutely no regrets in coming to this school. If you ask me its perfect!

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Friendly, Fun and Normal – I love the people here at this school. You never have to feel alone or lost. Everybody is happy, friendly and always willing to help you out, Yes including the Freshman. If you like to hang out with people and have a good time there are plenty of opportunities. You simply get out and do a few activities and before you know it you will have more opportunities to hang out with friends than you have time for.

Off-Campus Housing: Affordable, Nice and Social – In my opinion off-Campus housing is amazing! It's close to campus and very social. Some places have laundry mats a few doors down and some have laundry in each apartment. Cost is very reasonable and maintenance is great. Parking could be better but it generally all works out for everyone. And if you need any help at all, the school is very willing to help. Just ask and they will do their best to make things right for you. I honestly can't say anything bad - they're simply great.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Cold and Windy – In the winter it is very cold and windy but other than that it's very nice weather

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There is only one need for transportation that I found. And that would be a shuttle to the temple in the winter. To walk to them temple is a far walk especially in the cold. So it would be nice to have some transportation there.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The Dress Code is kind of hard to follow, but no one is rude about it. They kindly tell you to go home and change if you want to be on campus. The bikes are required to go walking speed and if they aren't they are nicely reminded.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I would make sure to talk directly to the finacial aid counselor that is given you. The students at the front of the office are little help, but the counselors are excellent. So, set up an appointment with them as soon as possible.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is a strict no drinking, no drug use policy. Those caught with either are kicked out of school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining Places – The places around campus are great! There are sandwich or other stands available. But there is also a great area with different restaurants-if you will- of your choice.

2 College Student

Parking: You Park, They Tow – You have to have a parking permit for almost everywhere and you have to pay for each parking permit. If you park for too long in visiting parking they will tow you. Sometimes they will tow you if they can't see your parking permit and when you show them where it was, they still make you pay to get your car back. I understand the need to control parking, but I think there needs to be some leniency.

4 College Student

Party Scene: Not Much Here – Curfew here is 12 a.m. on monday-thursday and saturday and 1 a.m. on fridays. If you aren't back home by then (on-campus and off) you can get in major trouble. There are dances and other clubs here though, that I think are fun. I don't think we need to stay up late to have a good time, so I'm fine with it.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: Very Culturally Diverse and Good Looking – We get people from all over the world, each beautiful in their own way. The dress and grooming standard is pretty high here, so everyone is well-dressed and looks good. Even if the people here aren't natural beauties, they all look happy and that makes them look attractive.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: It is an Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints School. So, the spirit of God you get there is the most amazing thing. The standards are modest which is great and you do not have parties, drinking and drugs. Something that I LOVE about this school!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Campus Cafeteria – The campus cafeteria food is awesome and there are a ton of options from pasta to Chinese! Those who wish to no eat in the school cafeteria, there are on campus deli places that you can use your "Dining Dollars" for, or you can rent an apartment with a kitchen. You can also choose a plan to eat all, 2 or just one meal there a day! It always smells delicious walking through the MC and the building is lively and fun!

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Teachers Truly Care – I feel that at BYU-Idaho, the teachers are there for the students. I have many teachers know me by name and they are almost always available after class to help with anything. In all honesty, in the three semesters I've been up there, I haven't met a teacher that I didn't like and a teacher who didn't care.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Against School Rules – You will be thrown out of school if you use any drugs or consume alcohol. Therefore, drug use is mostly nonexistent.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: None Existent – There are no known sororities or fraternities at BYU-I.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing units have to be approved by the school and usually six students live in each apartment with three bedrooms. The cost of the apartments per semester ranges about $900 to $1200, which is $250 to $350 a month per person, totaling about $1500 to $2100 a month total for one apartment. This price seems unreasonable when there are only three bedrooms and the apartments are small. The only way I could justify their prices is to explain that the apartments are already furnished.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Help Is Out There! I've been able to recieve pell grant money because of my family's financial situation. I was also able to get an academic competitive scholarship from high school. Don't hesitate in searching out financial aid. The price of education may be inexpensive, but that means every little bit makes a difference.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Living in the Iceburg Known as Rexburg – During the summer months (June to September) the weather is absolutely gorgeous! The remainder of the year gets really cold. It's not rare for the temperature to drop into the negatives and there's almost always snow on the ground. The campus maintains the sidewalks very nicely. I love layering my clothes, boots, and winter accessories so I really enjoy the weather.

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.
