2 College Freshman

Local Area: very poor small city. most places are overpriced. a lot of locals don't care for the students

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's not a very big city, so if you don't have a car you'll be better off just learning how to cook.

Academics: The science programs are pretty good. all chemistry classes take the ACS, and the school's average is usually right about the national average. The short semesters make some classes very difficult.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most everyone good, but clean checks and white gloves are a pain. And the rules are the same off campus as on campus

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you think big parties are the only way to have fun, go elsewhere

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Academic scholarships are next to impossible to get

3 College Freshman

Majors: Getting in to most programs isn't too difficult.

3 College Freshman

Majors: Some of the classes become unnecessarily difficult and rushed with the shorter semesters

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's rexburg, safest place around

3 College Freshman

Parking: If you wanna get a good spot, be there early

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Very very very few people use drugs around here, with the exception of those who abuse adderall around finals.

2 College Freshman

Administration: It's not at all unreasonable to compare the BYU-I administration to the KGB. If you're not an active member of the LDS church, or otherwise very religious, you'll hate this place.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: It's a BYU school. 'nuff said.

3 College Freshman

Technology: The wireless in the student center and library gets overloaded very quickly. Wireless in the other buildings is usually good enough and reliable

Guys & Girls: I would say it's pretty typical here at BYU Idaho. Nothing well known for. There are quite a few good looking women here, but its not very often you see them. Very nice for the most, you'll occasionaly run into the preppy stuck up girls but that doesn't happy very often either. Guys are a mix of them all, stuck up, smart, nice, fun outgoing, overall it's got all the different types of personalities here.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I like going to the new I-center for sports/exercise

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I always loved the apartments/houses I lived in when I was single. Married housing is harder to find close to campus for a good price, though

4 College Sophomore

Technology: I'm usually able to find a computer on campus when I need one. I never bring my laptop on campus

4 College Sophomore

Administration: I apprciate the strictness of campus policies because I have no need/desire to party with drugs or alcohol anyway, and with the Honor Code I don't have to put up with it from others

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I fill out the application for financial aid through the school even though I know I probably won't be selected because I feel like I should do everything I can to avoid debt if possible. Applying for scholarships with this school is extremely easy

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There is no use f any type of drugs or drinking on campus. If there was the student or group of people caught would not be allowed to attend the university.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is hard because there is often not enough sections open for the classes needed. The class work load is fine and most professors are very nice and helpful. Most students study in their apartments and/or the library.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The school has very strict policies to insure the safety of the students. The president of the school often reminds the students of the policy rules to help those that may not be following them.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: BYUI is a very safe place to be. There is always people willing to help out if there is any type of emergency.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is very few on campus housing which leads to it being very challenging to get into. Most live there one semester and then transfer to off campus housing. The apartments are alright, but not a very social able place. Most who live on campus spend most of their time in other off campus apartments.

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.
