4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a very small town, so there's not much to do in town. But you are very close to Yellowstone National Park, which is a great spot to visit. You're about a half hour from Idaho Falls, which has the mall, a big movie theater, and many choices for food. The St. Anthony sand dunes are also only about 20 minutes away from Rexburg, and they're some of the biggest and best sand dunes in the country for riding motorcycles/ATVs.

Health & Safety: I don't know of any campus crime at all besides students parking in a parking lot that they don't have a permit for. You WILL get a ticket for this. It sucks. Just get a parking pass. I can't think of a safer campus in the world.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Exercise Physiology is a very fun major, and the professors are top-notch. The strength training coach/professor was a wrestling coach at a much larger university in the midwest, where wrestling is huge. He has also written a few books.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The class sizes are almost all very small. I'm from Idaho Falls, and we always called it "BYU-High" or "The high school on the hill". This is great though, because your teachers will remember your name, and you will be able to build an actual relationship with them.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are no competitive sports between us and other universities. but there are many recreational, and competitive sports within our own university, and many sporting clubs are provided. There are also a large number of turf fields which are all very well maintained!

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone says hi, people hold the door for you, and overall this is a very social place! dating is a big part of campus life, but not normal dating, more of a casual, lets just have fun going mini golfing type of dating!

Campus Housing: Its a good place to start off, right on campus, and everything is easily accessible to you. but i cannot see myself living here for an extended period of time! (they are also demolishing these buildings and are building other ones elsewhere!)

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tuition here is almost completely subsidized by the tithing from the church members. so it is already extremely cheap! Tuition is about $1800. most of the activities on campus are also free of charge. And there are many scholarships for academics and talents! There is also a program in which students donate to help support other students in need! its pretty sweet!

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The school is located in Rexburg, ID pop: 25,000. Its not a super big city, but there are a lot of different activities to do. Most of which get old over time. But that's the same no matter where you go! Rexburg is about 45 minutes away from Yellowstone national park, and many other beautiful outdoor adventures! I Love it here!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I'm currently a Business management major! and its awesome! This major, and all the other majors are pretty demanding! this school's goal isn't to have you spend a lot of money here and make them rich, but rather prepare you for the real world. so in my major we take difficult classes that push us, and are required to start a temporary business for a semester and also participate in an internship while not on track!

5 College Freshman

Academics: I cant express how awesome this school is! we have a learning model here, Prepare, Teach, Ponder/Prove. and basically before each class we prepare for it by studying the chapter or subject we will be learning, then in class it is more of an open discussion, the teacher teaching us, and us teaching each other. then after class there are homework assignments that allow us to further ponder the information. This process requires a lot of work, but the amount of learning we do in such a short period of time is remarkable! I'm just just jumping through loops to get a good grade, but I'm learning and growing every step of the way, and am truly earning that grade.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great, each apartment complex or other housing that i have been too seems pretty sweet! They are all in line with the schools standards of living. Great social places!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: This is a very safe campus! Not once have I ever felt in danger of anything violent, or of someone stealing something from me. Because of the honor code we have here at our school, as well as a devotion to our religious believes there is a trust that exists on campus in which you don't feel the need to fear.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall is great, its in the middle of one of the largest buildings on campus and is in an open lively place. There are several small restaurants within the dining hall, which we call the Cross Roads. You can get anything from Southern BBQ to Sushi. there is plenty of seating and it is always buzzing with activity!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Our school is beautiful! Each building is unique and is very elegant! This campus has a gorgeous landscape, and plenty of space for students to gather and socialize. There is a garden right in the center of campus that makes for great scenery between your classes. All in all, This school doesn't just have great faculty and learning, but all around gives you a great wholesome environment to learn and grow throughout your time here.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The campus is large and has plenty of green space! There are many sports fields and a large gym which are available to everyone at anytime! there is also a massive building that has a large gym that has 10 full sized basketball courts that can be changed into tennis courts or whatever game you would like to play. In that same building there is a large indoor track and a large auditorium that holds about 15,000 students. There are also many facilities and areas that are designated for students to socialize or work on homework in a positive environment . You can tell that this campus was built with the student in mind.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The town is pretty small so it can be hard to find something to do on the weekends.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is really friendly here and accepting. The students are have a dress code so most students come to class looking sharper.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my education so far. The social aspects aren't very strong but I am learning a lot.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The University is a religious private school so there is not a lot of diversity. At times this can feel like the students are being sheltered.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: We are required to live in on campus housing so I have no review.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are many options available and for the most part management is great and willing to work with students.

4 College Junior

Administration: This is a religious campus that is strict but allows for everyone to focus on their schooling.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am in Elementary Education. I love the program and feel like the school does a great job preparing future students.

4 College Junior

Majors: There is not a lot of criteria for admission so most everyone who wants to can be admitted into the major.

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.
