4 College Junior

Athletics: BYU-I has a great intramural sports program. The workout facilities are amazing and they even offer free personal trainers!

4 College Junior

Technology: The internet usually works really well. Printing is not expensive. The tech people are always willing to help. However, there are many teachers on campus who do not allow the use of computers in the classroom.

3 College Junior

Weather: Depending on your outlook the weather could be several different things. Also, your outlook on the weather also depends on which semesters you attend school. The winter months are tough but the summer is absolutely gorgeous.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Most students walk to school. A car is necessary to go to the grocery store and other necessary places.

2 College Junior

Parking: BYU-I NEEDS to build more parking or put in a parking garage if they want people to come to their school.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Great place to make friends. Very close to campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not very many options for dining. Most of the places I have been to aren't really that great. I learned how to cook my own food.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Students at BYU-I abstain from alcohol and drug use. The school strictly enforces the honor code. If a student is found using these substances they may be asked to leave the university.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: BYU-I is a private university endorsed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The students here are required to sign an honor code agreement in they desire to attend the school. This honor code prohibits the use of drugs and alcohol in an effort to help the students live clean and healthy lives. That being said, the parties in the area usually don't involve drugs, alcohol, bars or other unclean behaviors. But the parties here are incredibly fun. The people make it great.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Rexburg is a small town, but the university offers so many activities that it is ok. If you really want to get out of Rexburg to go do something Idaho Falls, Salt Lake City, Yellowstone, etc. are pretty close. There are great things to do indoors and outdoors. However, I would not recommend making one of those drives during severe winter weather, which can be very dangerous.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are MANY new off-campus housing places being built in Rexburg, which should be open this upcoming Fall (2014) semester. They are beautiful and close to campus. You will always run into the super old and still expensive housing sites, but if you get started on finding housing right away then finding good housing shouldn't be an issue. Some of the off campus apartments even offer a shuttle service to and from campus, which is great in the freezing winter months.

5 College Junior

Academics: BYU-I is one of the best places for students to receive an exceptional education for a fraction of the price of other colleges and universities. I have not run into a single person who was not kind and helpful. The professors truly care about their students, which helps create a great feeling across the campus. BYU-I encourages student participation and feedback.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the Elementary Education program. You learn so much in every class and the teachers are excellent. The classes really get you excited for the work field.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There's no on-campus transportation since the school isn't very large. It's best to live as close to campus as you can.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love BYU-Idaho. The atmosphere, people, and classes are all phenomenal. There is a feeling of friendship and friendliness across campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have students from all over the world. There are different associations/clubs for different ethnicities and cultures that anyone can join.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived at a few different complexes and each has their ups and downs, but overall I've never had a horrible experience in any of the places I've lived.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There's something for everybody. If you like quieter parties or louder/bigger parties there's usually something to do most every weekend.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a great place, but there's practically nothing to do in town, off-campus. There's a ton of outdoor activities, but really only during summer.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Because of the values most if not all of the students hold, there is very very limited drug and alcohol use.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe both on and off campus. The only time there are really crime problems is when students don't lock up their cars/dorm/apartment.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Intramurals are a big part of campus athletics because there aren't any varsity sports. The school gym and fitness classes are great and so helpful for whatever you're tying to achieve.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The classes that they provide are really good.

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.
