3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure what off-campus housing is like because I've never lived there. But I do know that it's farther away, so if you want to live there, you need a car to travel. The parking is a lot better because there are less people there. I think the cost is more, but the quality is a lot better. From what I've heard, the landlords and managers are easy to get along with and are very nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There could be more options, instead of 4 Subways and 2 McDonalds. But there are places here that I've never heard of or been to. There's a nice variety of local shops and chain restaurants. I do like the intimacy of a small, unique restaurant. But I also like convenience of knowing exactly what I want off of the menu and the speed of the fast food restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I've found that the administration knows it's going on, but they can't really pin point a specific group, or apartment because too many people do it. You can get away with pretty much anything in the dorms and apartments, so it's difficult to catch students. They also don't really have security, so students tend to push the limits. If there's no one here to enforce it, you won't really get caught. I've broken curfew multiple times, but no one's out to enforce it, so I'm not worried about getting caught.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think the GPA requirement to keep your scholarships is a little high, considering you're expected to maintain almost a 4.0, even during your first semester. I was not ready for all of the work and I was still getting used to being on my own. If the GPA requirement was lower, I would be happier. It's also very easy to get financial aid dishonestly. I had a roommate last semester who lied about her home and living situation, and she got financial aid 3 weeks later. There are people out there who actually need help, but are too humble to ask for it. So the people who lie and spend the money recklessly take it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Since it is an LDS school, there's not a lot of raging parties. I haven't seen a party where there's drugs or alcohol, but I do know that people will do those things before and after the actual party. I like the fact that there aren't "bad" or "inappropriate" parties, because we all did sign a contract saying we would obey the rules and commandments. But a lot of the parties are lame. The dj's aren't good, and not a lot of people come.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's a little pricey, but very convenient. I always go to the MC Market when I don't want to walk to Broulim's and they almost always have what I need. I also haven't had Krispy Kreme in forever, so that always makes my day. I've never eaten in the Crossroads, but from what I hear, it's really good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost is very affordable compared to other universities. It's always very clean, people are very friendly and considerate. There are no late night parties that disrupt the atmosphere. There is approved housing surrounding the entire campus, so the travel time isn't bad. Some of the housing managers are rude, but most of them are easy to get along with.

Campus Housing: Everything is super close and convenient.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: They have different options but not enough to feel like there is a wide variety of options

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love where i live because it is very close to campus

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are enough restaurants to keep the typical college student happy.

4 College Junior

Administration: Yes they are a little strict at times, but they are doing it to protect our beliefs. It's good to have a reminder now and then.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I myself haven't received any scholarships, but I am still searching and applying since they would greatly ease the burden of financial worries from me and my family. That being said, all aids went smoothly and the school was helpful in the process.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: There seems to be a party going on all the time! The locations are always convenient and the parties are always a blast!

5 College Junior

Campus Food: The selection of foods her is great! Also, if you aren't in the mood for any of the Restaurants, you can find plenty of food in the market or from places all around campus

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus is very close and also I am able to meet new people practically every single day! Has helped with the change of living at home to going to school.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Brigham Young University, Idaho seems to work great with the scholarship process. It is very efficient and went fairly smoothly. I was worried financially but they helped me through!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties here are okay. There is nothing too special about them, and many times I go and they are a bust. They are mainly an excuse to get out of the apartment or take a break from homework. Some can be fun, especially on Spring Track. Its kind of like a treasure hunt, but sometimes fun ones may be found.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I don't eat on campus very often, but when I do it seems to be a 50 50 chance on wither the food is tasty or not. Prices aren't the greatest, so when I go cheap the food is usually disgusting. When I want to spend the extra cash, the food is decent.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely LOVE living on campus. I live in a great location and extremely pleasant. Management does well at enforcing rules but may go a bit overboard at times, which is my only complaint.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: the "town" is away from campus

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.
