4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It's great if you know where to look. There are some places that are an amazing price for good housing and theres some places that are terrible for a terrible price.

Off-Campus Dining: It's a small town, so there isn't much. There's pizza pie cafe, fast food, pizza places, and a few Chinese and Thai places.

Administration: I love the way the school is run, there's always ways around the system, but if you follow it, it keeps you well focused on whats important.

Campus Food: There are good places, and there are bad places. My preference is chic-fil-a. The italian food is very bland.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The process is thorough, and that's nice, other than that its nothing special.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The on campus housing isn't too bad, especially when looking at how little you pay for it, but the off campus housing can be a lot nicer in comparison and isn't too much more-- unless you're looking at the places that are super nice.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I've had issues in the past with the financial aid office informing me that my forms are complete and ready when they were not. I had to go back and try to figure things out multiple times. Usually things go quite smoothly though.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's not hard to find decent, reasonably priced off-campus housing. There are many clean, close-to-campus housing options to choose from. Most have great amenities that make college living more simple.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: The party scene is practical for an LDS school. There are no drugs or alcohol, so things stay safe generally.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is not much variety, but there are some great places. I enjoy the sandwich shops and food buses.

4 College Senior

Administration: Administration is wonderful. They are practical in rule enforcement.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Chick-fil-a is the only place I enjoy eating on campus. Most campus food isn't worth what it cost, but is alright.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've had great and terrible experiences in off-campus housing. Most of the bad experiences had to do with the apartment manager. I have loved The Willows and The Gates, they have been wonderful in all ways. The Ivy was awful because of management strange, out of control roommates, and is very anti-social. I have also lived in Alldredge House which has been alright, not very social.

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, it's great. Most people live off-campus so the environment is cool. Some managers are cool but some are lame.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's no alcohol, there's hardly any drugs. The parties are lame most of the time. It's NOT a party school, so don't try and have fun here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The town is tiny, so it's not the best food-wise. They're always really crowded and expensive.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's basically the strictest school. The honor code is highly enforced. But you can get away with it if you have cool roommates.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They are horrible at financial aid, and their scholarship system is really lame and biased. Basically, you're never going to get a scholarship through the school because they can't afford it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: They have a lot of options in the Crossroads, and there is always something that is pretty good to eat. It's pretty expensive, but I think it's like that at most colleges.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: They are building new dorms which is really nice, but the living situation at BYU-I is kind of ridiculous. It's kind of a monopoly, and it's really expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty expensive and certain complexes you are going to want a car to get anywhere but for the most part it is worth it to get out of the freshmen hub that is the dorms.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are some nice fun parties but they cost to get in even though nothing is offered except music most of the time. No one really parties in apartments because it's to easy to get in trouble.

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.
