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!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is great when it comes to outdoors activities. You have the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park about an hour away, and each have their own great things to do. There isn't a ton of shopping to do in Rexburg itself, you need to go to Idaho Falls for that, but it makes for a great night when you do!

5 College Senior

Academics: My major, psychology, requires extensive time and is a large work load but it is so rewarding as well. I have a true passion for my major and am looking forward to learning about it even further.

5 College Senior

Academics: All of the above is excellent and so helpful. I can always get answers i am looking for with ease and friendliness.

5 College Senior

Majors: Since declaring to be a psychology major and humanities minor, I have grown to love school and learning immensely. I love going to school everyday and studying for exams and quizzes.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Each housing complex has weekly clean checks so to keep clean homes throughout each semester. There are many options to choose from with excellent housing fees that will work with you depending on your financial situation.

4 College Senior

Administration: We are strongly asked to live by the Honor Code of our school which we agree to live by before being accepted into the University. We understand that if we break honor code in any way (drinking, drugs, out past curfew, opposite sex past our living room or premarital sex), we will be asked to go home and come back when appropriate.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Our school widely focuses on academic performance and leaves the sports to BYU-Provo. However, we have an excellent gym facility and encourage their students to attend by offering free memberships.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Many of the girls and guys fit a certain mold at my school since it is a religious, private university. All students obey a dress code which is to dress professionally and appropriately while attending class and are encouraged to dress respectfully at all times outside of class. The students are always willing to help one another and participate in regular church meetings and do service for those who need it.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: My school bases their scholarships on who needs it the most and although they believe I do not need help, I am in desperate need to finish my final year of college.

2 College Senior

Local Area: I live in the middle of nowhere in Rexburg, Idaho and although I love my school, I would never live here after i graduate because it is very slow paced and not my style.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses and teachers are excellent at my school and always inspiring. Almost all of my teachers have made attempts to learn my name and who I am

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am always getting emails from internships and job opportunities post-degree to help those who are looking for jobs. We have many career centers online including a resume center and how to act in an interview

3 College Senior

Diversity: There is not much diversity on campus but enough to allow learning, growth and acceptance of people who are different than you

3 College Senior

Local Area: There are some local attractions. But if you want to go to a museum then you have to drive a half hour away to Idaho Falls.

5 College Senior

Administration: You are are accepted to the school you sign an honor code that says that you will dress modestly and will not consume alcohol and drug use. If you violate any of these you are sent home. This honor code also covers not being in the room of someone of the opposite sex. There are also curfew hours that are set so that everyone maintains the honor code.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: They do offer fixed meal plans. You can also put money on your student card and use that so you are not on a fixed plan. They have a variety of different places to eat that are delicious and are filling for the price you pay.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have loved every minute of this campus. They make it easy to succeed they help you through everything.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school will help you connect with alumni that are in your field so that you can get all the help you can get. They also have students that call out to the new incoming students to help them prepare for collage life.

5 College Senior

Academics: My major is Recreation Management. For this major we are always outside doing things or in the classroom doing hands on activities. The work load if light compared to other majors. With this major there are many options for jobs and internships. The Professors are also willing to work with you to help you succeed in what you need to get done.

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.
