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.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Limited Parking – There is limited parking at the school so you have to be there early. But it is free. It's kind of silly to even drive to school since most housing is just across the street.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports? What Sports? In recent years the school has done away with competitive sports and I don't think there is anything competitive wise with other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus – I really liked the places I've stayed, by far Brooklyn (for girls) is the best bang for your buck. Super comfy couches! They do have limited parking but your roommates and the great managers make up for that!

Scholarships: The Reason for This – Going to a private Christian school for some reason makes in near impossible to find good scholarships if any. There are the odd couple here and there that you hear about that got a scholarships but for the most part getting help is not the easiest thing. That is why you really have to search outside the box. Hopefully doing all of this will help pay off for getting financial aid is extremely important to me at this point.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Easy to Get Around – Getting around campus is fairly easy with a car, not having to circle around to find a good spot for hours. The only hard time to find a place is near the library during mid terms and finals.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Not Much to Choose from – If you are looking for a nice place to find a meal, look somewhere else. Most of the population is college kids, so money is skim. There are a few places that do offer good discounts, but for the most part dining is not the highlight of this place.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Idaho, Man. Idaho. I love the snow!

The spring and summer are very pretty. You're dealing with snow most of the year, though. Good thing there's no flops or shorts!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It's the Honor Code – The Honor Code is pretty strictly upheld. It can be irritating to some, but I think you have to know what you're getting into to go to a CES school. I think it's great. Immodesty makes me pretty uncomfortable. You're spared a lot of drama by staying out of people's bedrooms.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: College Town Utopia – Rexburg is impossibly quiet, but it's conducive to natural college creativity. Set fairly far away from most major cities, it's great for hiking and sledding and fun with friends! There are lots of businesses in Rexburg eager to hire the students. With the Rexburg Temple close by, you're never too far from Home.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Amazing Food Court – New, huge and really modern, looks like an airport terminal! The food is good, but could be a little cheaper!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel really safe. The only problem is worrying that security will pick at something insignificant just to have something to do!

Overall Experience: Once in a Life Time Experience – I absolutely love going to school up here in Rexburg. The teachers are the reasons that i believe i have loved it here so much. They are unlike any other teacher that i have every had. They are willing to help students out with assignment, and to go into greater detail of learning if a student is struggling with a subject. BYU-I is also unique because of the atmosphere that the students and the teachers bring into class everyday.
This school is also very widely known and so it brings in people from all over the world. I love the fact that you can get to meet new people that you would have never met before.

Party Scene: Don't Even Bother – The light life in Rexburg, Idaho is very quiet. Students are busy with school work and the parties or nightlife that are available don't even compare to other parties at other schools. You have a curfew to be in your housing by a certain time, but that is mostly to make sure that everyone is safe.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: The Need for a Personal Computer – Over the past year BYU-I has come up with the initiative to ensure that students know the importance of having their own computers while attending college. Professors are posting a majority of assignments online. More and more classes are being offered online, and having your own personal computer is a must if you wish to succeed in any college that you attend.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: Very Socially Friendly – This school is very good at always having social gatherings and recreational activities open and available to everyone. This enables people to meet and become friends with so many others and not feel left out. Everyone can have a social life!

2 College Sophomore

Parking: They are trying to make improvements, but there are lots of people so the general goal is to promote kids to walk to class instead of drive. Walking is very easy on campus and it doesn't take long at all to get from one end to the other.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There is a brand new dining area that has a variety of options for different styles of food.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Teachers are up to date, and exceptional. Expect to study at least two hours for every hour in class. Professors make it a point to have that much or more time needed for each class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Love It Here – there are strict rules, but it is fun. People are very nice and the profs are the best :)

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Dry Campus – There is absolutely no drinking and no drugs. There probably is some somewhere, but you have to look really hard to find it.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: There are only intermurals at this school. No competitive sports against other colleges, but I am okay with that

4 College Senior

Administration: There is a very strict honor code. This code is seen by many as a hindrance, however if understood correctly, many can see this as a good protection setup by inspiration from church leaders.

4 College Senior

Diversity: I think that there are a lot of people on campus that have either grown up around people of other races and cultures, however, I feel that on campus there aren't many people from other races/cultures percentage wise. I think that a majority of the students come from very white dominated areas of the United States, but I feel that there is a lot of acceptance of others. This feeling may not though be found in people's subconscious prejudices.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: I've never brought a car to school, and there isn't really a need to. Everything is walking distance except Walmart and DI but most of the time you can get a ride from someone who has a car when you need to go there. When you are walking in the winter remember to dress warmly and you'll be fine.

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.
