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

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Super Easy! If you keep your grades up, you get a full tuition scholarship. That simple.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Fast Wifi and Library Is Reliable – It's very helpful to have your own laptop, but the library is a reliable source. There are three floors of computers and printers, so you will never run out of resources.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Excellent Environment – The way people treat you at BYU Idaho, students and professors alike, is amazingly nice, cordial, and understanding. I feel so warm and welcome in every class and the academics are outstanding. Everyone is willing to help you and you never feel alone.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Brigham Young University here in Idaho. There are tons of things to do. In fact, I'm going Caving and Stargazing this weekend. I would definitely choose this school if I had to start all over again.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drugs at Brigham Young University-Idaho – Drugs are not used at my school. It's not only against our morals to use drugs, but it's against the Honor code.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Majoring in Social Work – I love my major here at BYUI. It's an applied major so I haven't gotten into the program yet, but I feel like Social Work is a good field to get into. My professor is very enthusiastic and gives us a lot of real life examples of cases. He includes everybody in the class so we all know each other. Social Work is my favorite class.

2 College Junior

Transportation: Provide Your Own – the town is so small, there are no buses or taxis. there is snow on the ground for 8 months out of the year so biking can be tricky, but they do a good job at clearing sidewalks, especially on campus. there is not much to do in town, so a car is necessary to find something to do.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of Locations – there is a lot of off-campus housing. plenty of options. the apartments can be very modern. most are right next to campus, a five-minute walk. apartments with individual rooms or with a roommate. they can be pretty expensive though.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strict Law – BYU-I has its rules but there there to help us grow. Yeah they seem restricting but they are followed based on our honor code. I sign our names to that Honor Code, if we don't follow it then we will be taken out.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Small Indeed – Indeed Rexburg is quite small, most of the time as students have to come up with things to do in order to have fun, and have the time that's half the fun. Idaho is considered a scenic state, so for sure there are a lot of beautiful sites to go and look at.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Great Enviroment – BYU-I is an amazing school if anyone has a desire to learn who they truly are. Help is always available and the environment is meant to help us grow not only knowledge based growth but also spiritual growth.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: All Sorts of People – There are all varieties of ethnic/racial backgrounds along economic backgrounds. The campus is very diverse in most aspects however most of the students are all members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

3 College Freshman

Academics: New to It All – I've just finished registering for all my classes so I'm not sure what the program or being apart of the major is like, but I have heard good things and am eager to learn and participate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love It – I absolutely love BYU-Idaho. It is the perfect place for me and I can't imagine being anywhere else to get my education. When I got accepted I wasn't sure if I really wanted to go, but I did, and there hasn't been a day that I regretted that decision. The academics are challenging, the people are awesome and I love the environment.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Good Clean Fun – A lot of people say that there is nothing to do in Rexburg, Idaho and those are the people that aren't creative in coming up with fun things to do. There are lots of places downtown that are good for eating out with friends, and dates. There is always someone throwing a party somewhere and there are lots of school sponsored activities that are a lot of fun. The fun is clean and original.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Kind, Understanding Professors – Before going to BYU-Idaho I always joked that the professors there must be really nice because of their religion. After going there for two semesters I realized how right I was, but they aren't kind because of their religious affiliation. They honestly want their students to succeed and they are willing to answer questions, talk personally and work with students to ensure that that happens.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It is hard to get a scholarship through the school unless you have a really high GPA. The form is really easy to fill out. You are also rewarded scholarships through your majors department.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel very safe, I have never had an issue of feeling unsafe. I can walk home from the Library at 11:30 at night and still feel safe. I have heard of a few crimes but that is very rare and when they do happen everyone knows about them because it is very rare to hear about them.

5 College Junior

Academics: Animal Science – Brigham Young Idaho has an amazing program. I love all my professors, they are very willing to work with their students. The classes give you a lot of hands experience.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Wireless Access on Campus – typically speaking, wireless access while linked into a campus server is burning fast. Off campus however it's a small nightmare.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Customized Education for Personal Employability – BYU-Idaho offers rigorous curriculum in every major. Expectations for performance and involvement in class are high, generally speaking. Classes required to graduate may be negotiated and can cover very broad or very specific areas of expertise so long as there is a logical connection as to how they will help the student be more attractive to prospective employers.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: We are mostly Latter Dat Saints and we are very accepting of all people of differing ethnicities, economic backgrounds, political beliefs, and religious beliefs.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The Campus Is Relatively Close to All Housing Facilities. The campus is very close to all housing complexes so walking is an easy opporunity. There are not many paking spaces, but it's not a big deal because walking is an option. There are no shuttles or buses to or on campus, but the campus is small so they aren't needed.

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.
