Local Area: Painfully remote is the perfect way to describe Rexburg. There is literally nothing to do except go to FatCats to see a movie or bowl. The next main city (Idaho Falls) is 30 minutes away in a car, and there's very little to do there as well. The best thing to be if you go to BYUI is an outdoorsman, but even then you have to travel far and wide.

Party Scene: I would say that the majority of the parties are in off-campus apartments and obviously void of alcohol and drugs, but full of mountain dew drinking games (why, I don't know) and kissing random people because that's what Mormons do for fun apparently. The lamest parties happen on campus. But let's be honest, they're all fairly lame.

Administration: The school has an extremely strict honor code, but that's a good thing! It helps us to be better people.

Off-Campus Housing: I love where I have lived off campus. Some of the pros include having great roommates, a clean house, a good price, and a lot of perks. I have always felt safe, there are always parking spots at the places I've lived, etc.

Overall Experience: People who graduate from BYU-Idaho typically find a job quickly.

Health & Safety: I had to call upon the safety and security measures of campus to help with a roommate who was suicidal. They responded quickly and did what they could to help her get some counseling.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: When I actively participated in classroom discussions I learned the most. Being open to talking to professors gave me a better education as well.

Academics: The academics are rigorous, but not as competitive as at other schools. Professors are kind and helpful, and have office hours to help students outside of class. There are many study areas and tutors available. Registration is not too difficult, and the work is good.

Local Area: There is not a lot to do in Rexburg. It is small enough to walk places, and with friends you can find fun things to do. Attractions include local movie theaters and parks. There are not a lot of places to shop, unless you drive to a nearby city.

Party Scene: There are not a lot of parties. Some events take place, and small groups of students often get together, but I usually don't leave my complex. We have small groups of friends hanging out.

Health & Safety: There is some campus crime, but it is not a huge problem. We often leave our door unlocked when we go out. There is security around campus, and it is safe to walk around alone. The campus is contained and few people are out after dark, but it is well lit, so there is little worry.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The program is specifically designed to help students succeed. The faculty is all willing to help and has experience in the field. The program provide hands-on experience and chances to actively learn. The workload is enough to get students working, but not overwhelm. Some facilities could be improved.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are not of huge importance. We have few teams because of the weather, and most sports are just students getting together to have fun.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus has a very strict honor code which all students need to follow. It helps students stay safe and provides a good learning atmosphere. People can still do fun stuff, but there is no worry about bad things happening.

5 College Senior

Majors: I run into some problems with my program in that it is almost to flexible. I am a pre-proffessional student and my classes are limited so that I have room for my classes like Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and other that are needed to prepare for examinations like the DAT(Dental Admissions Test). I found myself wanting more out my degree in able to help others with my degree. For example I want to take advanced Nutrition but because it isn't an elective and I have to fill my time with other classes it is hard to justify taking that class.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: This portion would not apply much to me because there are no Greeks. Our school is a religious school and there are strict rules that we abide by namely, no drinking, no sex, and curfew. Our school is as squeaky clean as it gets and so there are no existing sororities. For questions two and three I just put A because Greek life is so foreign to me that my comments would be invalid.

5 College Senior

Local Area: The local environment in Rexburg is very quiet and calm. It is a small town where the student population makes up most of the punctuation during the school year. It is the perfect study school because of this calm. We are near many great outdoor attractions. We are an hour drive from Yellowstone National Park, Jackson Hole WY, and the Grand Tetons! There are hot springs, and many places to swim or fish in the summer. We have the sand dunes and caves nearby to go cave exploring or we can get together some friends and take rent out dune buggies! Rexburg was voted one of the top 100 safest cities in America I think in 2011. I assume it remains this safe. On campus we have built many "rape poles" as we call them they are emergency buttons that are wired into the schools security system through the ground. there are several of them throughout campus. The local attitude of students is a good one because we have brought many business here and the town is growing because of the student population.

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.
