3 College Senior

Academics: The school is small so courses aren't always awful and it makes it difficult for some people to graduate on time.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: BYU-I doesn't participate in NCAA sports, so we don't play against other colleges or have major teams. The intramural program on campus is great though. There are many sports, and most have a competitive league as well.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had my internship yet, so I don't know how they go.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major (Exercise Physiology). All of my classes have been a lot of fun so far, except for math because I don't enjoy math. The classes are small, and the workload isn't huge either. The sports facilities that we use are all very very nice and well-maintained.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I'm married, so I'm not a part of the dating scene anymore, but there are lots of attractive guys and girls on campus. Almost everybody is very friendly, and it's very easy to make friends. Everybody dresses modestly on campus. No shorts are allowed unless you are in the gym.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's not really any clubs or bars in town at all. You could get a beer at Applebees if you really wanted to, but that's about it. There are 2 smallish movie theaters in town, and they're cheap. There is a little restaurant/venue called Sammy's that hosts local music stuff.

Most of the parties are just when people decide to go have a fire somewhere with friends, or if there's a ward party or something going on.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't a whole lot of diversity here in regards to race, sexual preference, or religion. The student population is about 88% white, and probably over 95% LDS. There may be a few closeted homosexuals, but I doubt there's many.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's a large selection of majors and classes to take, and the classes are almost all under 40 students. Almost all of the professors I've had have been great. There was nothing wrong with the professors that I didn't like, I just didn't prefer their teaching style usually.

The gym on campus is the best equipped gym I've ever been to, and it's completely free for students and their spouses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As far as I know, getting a degree from BYU-I is just as good as any other degree from another school. The nursing program is pretty prestigious, I think.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are many scholarships and grants available. I was looking at my financial aid awards today, and I saw that I received a $2700 scholarship for this year from BYU-I. I never even applied for any scholarships! If you have a job, or have any money saved up, you probably won't need a scholarship because tuition is only about $1900 per semester.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus dining is fine. There's a few random shops in a few buildings, but pretty much everything is located in the Manwaring Center. The food is all pretty good, and it's all decently priced.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Uh... there aren't any fraternities at BYU-I that I know of.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived in off-campus housing for about 2 years now, but the options I had at the time were fine. There are many new large apartment buildings/complexes that are built or being built now, so the options are great now.

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.

5 College Sophomore

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!

4 College Freshman

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!

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.
