3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: It really depends on the complex. Some are really close to campus (my last place was right across the street from the middle of campus) and some are a bit further, but those ones tend to be closer to shopping/ grocery stores. If you have a car and a parking pass on campus, you're set for any of the housing.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus is extremely safe, nothing really happens. There are patrol cars here and there, but there never really seems to be any reason for them to be there. One thing that surprised me was how much stuff turns up in the lost and found. So much stuff that is usually assumed stolen once missing will turn up there, there is a surprising amount of honesty.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Intramurals are more of the sports scene here. On the weekly newsletter there are invites to pick-up games that anyone can join, but there really isn't a varsity... BYU Idaho used to have sports but they're not huge here anymore. If you want to attend BYU but you want sports you need to go to either BYU-Utah or BYU-Hawaii.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I spent the last semester walking everywhere- without a car, there are less options. I also didn't eat out much, I prefer spending my money on food at the grocery store, making things stretch was a habit of mine. When did spend on fast food, I liked Dominoes because they delivered. I don't entirely recommend the Chinese or the Mexican food there, they're not horrible... but they're definitely not the best, unless you're going to the Taco Bus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The page for my financial aid on my school's website lists many opportunities, inside and outside of aid given by the school as well as instructions for fafsa. I've only been to the financial aid office a couple times- and although they're busy sometimes, they seem organized and on top of their work.

Off-Campus Housing: off campus is better than dorms

4 College Junior

Majors: depends on your major and what internship you look for

3 College Junior

Administration: honor code is what we agree to live by when we go there some do some don't and some pay for not following it

4 College Junior

Party Scene: depends on what you are looking for

Health & Safety: Like every place there are some security concerns because no where is without crime.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's like any other small college town.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We don't have competitive sports anymore just inter-murals. That being said fitness as a whole is important or becomes important to a lot of people on campus. What with climbing a mountain to go to class everyday you get in shape pretty quickly.

Scholarships: my family doesn't get a low enough income

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel like our campus is aware of both of them

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: you follow the honor code or you get kicked out.

Off-Campus Dining: the normal food chain places

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I loved my internship, the pay and work was good.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: My teachers convinced me to go into my program.

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: I'm not big into partying

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Not a big difference between the two on campus

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It's a pretty good long process and it took a couple semesters to get the process down but it's not bad for the amount of students here. Sign up early and watch on any updates in your school finances and that's about all you can do.

Off-Campus Housing: I LOVE the perks at Rexburg Housing. We have an honor/dress code requiring clean shaven and my housing complex gives 2 free hair cuts a semester. It's great. Prices could be a little less. I'm right next to campus which is super nice and the managers are great. Parking is taken care of decently but the parking lot is a little small.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The prices are pretty average with any other restaurant. If the majority of the restaurants were closer to the campus, that would be nice as well as adding a few more student discounts. There is a decent amount of different places.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The parties in Rexburg are fun and most importantly they are clean. School, housing, and student parties are definitely my favorite.There are big parties called the uprising but from my experience, they are questionable morally. There are dozens of parties across campus every weekend but they are much smaller and less crazy than a typical college party. I would say that these have a positive impact on the school/students because we are able to relax and stay sane from homework.

4 College Junior

Athletics: BYU-Idaho is a private, church-funded, university and has chosen to not have varsity sports as part of school life. We have a TON of intramural sports and activities and I would say half of the school is involved in them somehow. It creates a super fun, healthy, and social environment across the campus. For the lack of a varsity team, I would say that we actually have pretty great facilities to the students disposal.

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.
