4 College Senior

Transportation: The town is fairly small, but with all the students it's crammed tight full of shops and restaraunts, most of them right next to campus. Public transportation isn't all that necessary.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: They have a great cafeteria. They call it the crossroads. They serve sit down style dinners. Prices are fair. There's a host of eating options around the campus as well.

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus. Many students frequently leave their front doors unlocked and open. the only problem i've seen is some ex students setting off firecrackers outside our dorm building in the middle of the night.

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are forbidden on this campus. I have never met anybody who does do drugs or drinks and if a student is caught doing either, the consequences are severe

Technology: Its very easy to get an inexpensive computer plus free software. all on campus dorms have free wifi but i don't know about off campus. the library has tons of computers but it can sometimes be hard to get one. A lot of people had trouble connecting to the campus wifi the first week but the help desk is very helpful.

5 College Freshman

Majors: i'm a prospective dance major and so far, its been amazing. the teachers are very knowledgeable in their fields. they have a lot of experience and some like to focus on preventing/avoiding injury. its ok if you accidentally sign up for the wrong skill level of class because the first week is generally placement tests in any class you're in so you'll get in the classes that fit your skill level

2 College Freshman

Weather: One day can start off at 35 degrees and get up to 80 in the middle of the day so its hard to tell if you should bring a jacket or not. It snows a lot in the winter so if you hate snow, its a no go. From what i've heard, a lot of people building hop to avoid the cold. Its also very windy and dry here so bring lots of chapstick. But, the weather doesn't really affect the classes.

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of options including renting a house with some friends, apartments with or without roommates, etc. Plus, most places have kitchens but not all the mens apartments from what i've heard. There's also a wide range of prices from about $800 to $2000 per semester (3 months). Some come with gyms, pools, spas, etc.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Good but Close Early – The Crossroads [the dining place at Brigham Young University] usually had good food, but they close SO early! It was hard to eat there because I was still in class or busy with homework and once I had time to eat, it was closed! I would have given it a better rating if they stayed open past 6:00 pm.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Everyone Is Willing to Help Out – What I have learned so far from being an Integrated Studio Arts Major at BYU-Idaho is that everyone is willing to help out. At Brigham Young University- Idaho, we have what is called the Learning Model and one of the main parts of the Learning Model is to "Teach One Another." With this Learning Model, students learn to give positive feedback and learn to critique in such a way that is helpful to the student being critiqued. The professors at BYU-Idaho are also always willing to help students out if they are struggling with a certain assignment or project. They give honest opinions and really try to help the students reach their full potential.

3 College Freshman

Technology: Good but Crowded and Slow – The computers on campus aren't ancient or bad but they are often slow and there aren't very many so they are usually full. Campus networking makes up for this however by making it easy for you to use your own laptop or mobile device.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is literally no drug use at Brigham Young University - Idaho. On the rare occasion that somebody is found to use they are immediately faced with disciplinary action, usually facing academic probation for a semester or more.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Completely Safe – As a religiously sponsored school the requirements to attend are very strict and as such safety is phenominal. Although I personally feel a need to lock my door simply out of habit, I am the definate minority. Alcohol, tobacco use, and drugs are strictly forbidden for students to use and disciplinary action is taken when those terms are violated. Overall it is an extremely safe and health conscious school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Availability but Little Variety – There is so much housing available for students in Rexburg but unfortunately it is very similar. There are a few complexes that are unique but the majority are cookie cutter apartment complexes. The prices are great though and all of the student housing is so close to campus that having a car isn't necessary and neither is using public transportation.

3 College Sophomore

Technology: Once I used the computer at BYUI, I relied on the clock on the computer, which is wrong. Therefore, I was late for the class.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Professors here are helpful; classmates are nice; and I enjoy studying here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: No Comment – Since I didn't play any sport, so I didn't have much to say about it.

1 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Not Enough Options – Off-campus dining options are very limited because the city of Rexburg, Idaho is very small. Most people drive to Idaho Falls for a nice sit-down restaurant. The dining options in Rexburg are subway, McDonalds, taco bell, rameras, gringos, cocoa bean, Applebee's, and a couple other places but that is basically it.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Los Muchachos – The boys are pretty picky at BYU-Idaho because the ratio of boys to girls is about 1:3. A lot of the boys are still immature but there are a few that know where they are going in life.

3 College Senior

Academics: Professors Want You to Succed – The Professors in the Health Science Program really want the students to learn the information well. Some people view this as a pain but it really isn't because they provide quality education. The Professors give additional information not needed for our tests to spark our interest and help us see new and developing career opportunities in our field.

4 College Senior

Academics: Tudor Center – I love the Tudor Center at BYU-Idaho because it is free! It helped me get a high grade in both anatomy & physiology 1 and 2. The Tudors are students who have taken the class before so they give you tips on what the professor wants to see in your performance. You can sign up for either a one time session or once a week.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: There Are Plenty If You Just Ask. To get scholarships you have to go ask your financial aid adviser and they are usually pretty helpful in getting you what you need. Also the school give tuition scholarship automatically if your cumulative GPA reaches a certain threshold, which when high enough will pay full tuition.

5 College Junior

Academics: Great Teachers – All of the teachers are very knowledgeable, many of them have studied at other well accredited universities. The classes are small so you can usually get to know your professor and receive one on one help if needed.

3 College Junior

Diversity: It's a Church School – Most who attend BYU-Idaho are there not just because of quality of education but because of the shared beliefs that most of the students have. That's not to say their isn't diversity, but it's a very religious school and extremely united on that front.

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.
