BYU Idaho is absolutely amazing! The professors care so much about you, the classes are so awesome, we have devotional every Tuesday which is awesome and "the spirit of Ricks" here is so uplifting and reassuring. There is also fun parties around Rexburg and there's fun places to eat and everyone here is so nice! The campus is also gorgeous and it is so cheap to attend here, it's like hitting the jackpot, there are so many resources and amazing programs and opportunities that we get for such a low cost, it's so amazing! Wouldn't want to be anywhere else!

I absolutely love this University! Even if you aren't LDS, it has such an amazing feel to it. The campus is beautiful and I frequently see people tending to the landscaping. The campus is set up beautifully, too. It didn't take me very long to learn the layout. It is set up on a hill, which isn't too bad unless it's really early in the morning and you are tired. Of course, like all places, you will find rude people, but mostly everyone is kind. There are a lot of close-by job opportunities, but they fill up quickly. All of the professors I have had are fair. You must go to church, and live by the honor code, but it is worth it. Drugs and stuff are bad for you anyway. Come here! It's awesome!

The BYU-I learning model is the best! I've retained so much more information here than I ever did in high school. This is my first semester, so I can't fully make this statement, but you will LOVE your professors! They really want you to succeed, and they are very accommodating with their office hours, and with special circumstances. Campus Life is good, there is plenty to do. I recommend off-campus housing because there are a lot of really nice choices. The BYU-I center is absolutely gorgeous and amazing. I absolutely ADORE the student wards, your bishopric are usually teachers, so they understand what you're going through. Tuition is dirt cheap and they're really nice about giving out scholarships. Learning in a faithful environment is great, because it's genuinely hard not to feel the Spirit in the classroom.
