Greek Life: Not a big difference between the two on campus

College Junior

Greek Life: There really isn't any form of Greek life at this school. There is maybe one organization that I know of at school but I'm positive it isn't like a typical Greek organization.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It's a pretty good long process and it took a couple semesters to get the process down but it's not bad for the amount of students here. Sign up early and watch on any updates in your school finances and that's about all you can do.

Off-Campus Housing: I LOVE the perks at Rexburg Housing. We have an honor/dress code requiring clean shaven and my housing complex gives 2 free hair cuts a semester. It's great. Prices could be a little less. I'm right next to campus which is super nice and the managers are great. Parking is taken care of decently but the parking lot is a little small.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The prices are pretty average with any other restaurant. If the majority of the restaurants were closer to the campus, that would be nice as well as adding a few more student discounts. There is a decent amount of different places.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The parties in Rexburg are fun and most importantly they are clean. School, housing, and student parties are definitely my favorite.There are big parties called the uprising but from my experience, they are questionable morally. There are dozens of parties across campus every weekend but they are much smaller and less crazy than a typical college party. I would say that these have a positive impact on the school/students because we are able to relax and stay sane from homework.

4 College Junior

Athletics: BYU-Idaho is a private, church-funded, university and has chosen to not have varsity sports as part of school life. We have a TON of intramural sports and activities and I would say half of the school is involved in them somehow. It creates a super fun, healthy, and social environment across the campus. For the lack of a varsity team, I would say that we actually have pretty great facilities to the students disposal.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There really isn't Greek life so there's nothing to review

4 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The office is always too crowded, but worked out.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's worth the freedom and it isn't too expensive

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: BYU-Idaho focuses on a Gospel-centered learning model. The class sizes are much smaller than many state universities, even BYU. Many of my professors have been obviously passionate about the subjects they teach which has helped me want to learn. Almost all of them are more than willing to help students one on one also. Apparently, the courses are not as challenging as in larger schools, but I believe there is as much opportunity to learn and excel as anywhere.

Guys & Girls: As I guy, BYU-I is the place to find girls. There are about twice as many girls as there are boys on campus, and almost every one of them is clean, attractive, smart, modest and classy.

College Senior

Scholarships: I haven't applied for any financial aid since I was first admitted because you are required to fill out the FAFSA which I don't want to do. My freshman year it was rewarded automatically for academic achievement.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: From secondhand experience, not actually living in the dorms, but having a girlfriend and other friends who lived there, the dorms are right in the middle of campus so you are about as close as you can get to all your classes. Because the rules are a bit more strict there it is cleaner and you get good service from your managers.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Main street is within walking distance of campus, which is where you can find a variety of NOT mainstream restaurant options as well as some normal fast food chains. You've got classics like Taco Bell, Dominos, and Pizza Hut, or Original Thai, New York Burrito, The Hickory, and many more.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty nice. The majority of the school is LDS, so everyone follows those standards and it makes it really easy to make friends with the same standards. Everyone on campus has clean looks and doesn't dress overly sloppy. Everyone just wants to have fun, so you can always find someone with the same likes as you.

Overall Experience: BYU-Idaho is so underrated. Everyone thinks that BYU-Provo is the top choice, but really going to BYU-Idaho has been the best thing for me. The student population is a lot smaller than Provo, so you can actually know the people at your school and the classes will be small too. There is always something fun going on, either on campus or off campus. Students get together all the time to do fun things, and the school has a lot of fun things to do as well. I don't know many schools that have actual ski and snowboarding classes in the winter, or do pond skimming competitions. There is also an outdoors campus that students can go and do shooting, ropes course, etc. Really one of the best schools for your money.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: All the major's at the school really prepare you for your future career. Most of my classes are either hands on in some form, or require me to take a class that will be hands on. The facilities are really nice, not the newest of the technologies, but probably just one step down. Everyone takes care of the equipment and what they use because they know other students will be using them. I love my major so much!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: BYU-Idaho used to be a two year university, so they have really great programs in a wide variety of subjects. All the programs now are up to bachelor degrees, and they all are great. The teachers care about the students and classes are usually small enough so the teachers will know your name. Registering is not that difficult, and you can usually get all the classes you want.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: As far as I know, there aren't applications for most of the majors. I'm sure any of the pre-med majors have applications, but my major of Communications didn't. It makes it really easy to start finding out what you want to do without worrying about applications.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Everyone says their major is the best, but Communications really is the best major. The major is so broad, you meet students in all fields! One minute you're talking to a journalism student and the next you are talking to an advertising student. All of the faculty care about the students and have years of experience and advice to share. Plus, there are so many resources for finding internships and jobs. There is not a ton of work, but all the work you get will take time. It's common knowledge for Comm students that our major is not hard, it just takes a lot of time!

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.
