4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Very convenient and great place to be. No drama

5 College Freshman

Local Area: A great place to feel safe and focus on quality.

5 College Junior

Majors: I just declared a major in Child Development without having to go through a process of applying. We are given the degree audit to know when to take certain classes and how to graduate in 8 semesters.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a lot of variety on campus at the Crossroads. I used to eat there a lot more and I liked that I could eat something different every day. The food is quite pricey so if you are trying to save money, it wouldn't be a good option. I know there are meal plans, but I don't know much about it because I have never had one.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We don't have varsity sports that go play against other universities, but our intramural program is excellent. There are many sports available for both men and women to play. The facilities are excellent. We have a gym with 10 different courts on it both for free play and for the games during the week. There are tournaments in different sports that provide students with opportunities to compete within the university.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe walking across campus even at night. I know that it is a safe and quiet place where nobody is getting drunk and harassing somebody else. The officers on campus offer the chance for people who don't feel safe walking home alone to be escorted home. I know that when I come across somebody else on campus after dark, they are more likely to smile and say hello than they are to harm me in any way.

Campus Housing: There are excellent apartments off campus with great social life. There are some complexes that have reputations for being naughty, but overall we have great places to live. There are definitely differences in the places to live. If you want to live in luxury, you live in the bigger, more expensive ones. If you like simple and small, you strive for the smaller and cheaper ones. But no matter what, the housing is great wherever you live.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: Basically, if you don't have a car, you live on campus. The college is the town, and the nearest city is Idaho Falls, half and hour away. The college itself isn't bad unless you enjoy traveling and scenery.

Scholarships: For financial aid, it's better than most people would expect. There's of course the university general scholarship you can apply for with FAFSA once a year. However, the most financial aid students get from this university comes from those in the church whose donations and tithing help to lower the overall costs of attending, for which I'm very grateful.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. On average, only a handful students out of 15,000 per semester do drugs or participate in any violent or degrading sexual activities, and those few who are caught are not often allowed back into this university. On a daily basis, I never question my safety and can often walk alone at night with a good feeling, on or off campus.

Administration: This school is strict on strict. In order to even attend this university, you have to abide an honor code and live by honorable and virtuous standards every day. It keeps the students engaging and positive, because the ones that come want to be there, and that makes the campus more uplifting overall.

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining doesn't offer the healthiest food choices, especially if it's not from home. There are lots of fast food places, and some offer more ethnic variations, such as Chinese and Spanish cuisines, but because of the location of the university, things are more or less limited.

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.
