3 College Student

Local Area: Since it is a college town, there are always activities going on to keep us busy and involved. That being said, there really isn't a lot to do outside of campus activities if you don't have transportation. Around town there isn't much happening, you have to be creative to avoid falling into ruts and getting bored.

Majors: I have been disappointed with the lack of some majors, including a complete lack of post baccalaureate programs. It's a small school so I understand, but I hope they expand to offer some more majors in the future. Also, because it is such a small school I fear that it may be difficult to make a lot of connections in my career field as a Political Science major. Other than those concerns, I think that the program seems fantastic so far.

4 College Student

Majors: I have only recently decided upon my major, I just switched over to it a week ago. But that being said, the people I spoke with were all very friendly and helpful and they helped me find the answers to the questions I had. It seems like a great program so far, and though the teachers are reported to be difficult I expect to learn a lot.

Transportation: I'm in a pretty small town, there aren't buses (yet), there are no taxis, and our enterprise car rental program is convenient but somewhat pricey.

4 College Student

Athletics: My college does not have varsity sports of any kind, all we have are intramurals and other activities. They're pretty big, one of the biggest degree programs at my college is Exercise Physiology. Lots of people love taking care of their bodies and having fun with sports, there's always some activity going on!

Scholarships: I am in progress and am unable at present to rate the process as a whole.

Academics: My program is not found very often in colleges, but it is a field that is gaining a lot of attention and generating a lot of interest worldwide. I feel that I am ahead of the curve because I am pursuing this education at the forefront of the demand. I look forward to being able to put my education to good use in the world to earn a living and help people to connect their family roots. Any degree can seem overwhelming but with proper planning, scripture study and prayer, and the willpower to set aside some good choices for some better ones, you can be extremely successful.

Majors: I chose this school specifically because it offered this major, not many schools do. I am pursuing family history research. I love that it is offered online as I live out of state. i feel that the workload is strong, but through the skills and expectations of the instructors and the learning model it is possible to stay balanced with your life outside of school. i am truly grateful to be attending and I encourage everyone to consider this school.

Majors: I have not had an official internship through the school, but I an working as a volunteer outside of school in my chosen field and I feel that it is a very important thing to do. Why wait several years to begin doing what you love? find a way to do it now and keeping a record of projects that you volunteered on will offer you a great portfolio for your resume.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This is a school that puts a lot of emphasis on morality. This school supports traditional marriage and the sanctity of life and I love that about it. There is a very diverse ethnic range and students love attending this school.

Administration: You are expected to live by an honor code but I think that helps. You have every opportunity to do your absolute best. There is no pressure to do things you don't want to do. I think it helps you to succeed.

Technology: Printing on campus is really easy and pretty inexpensive. Network speed is pretty great and reliability is good for the most part. You don't necessarily need a personal computer or printer but it is easier.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is plenty of diversity here and it is widely accepted. It doesn't matter who you are and we are taught to accept everyone and I feel like here we do.

Athletics: There are no varsity sports. There are only intramural and club sports, which I think a lot of students get involved. It isn't necessarily a school you come to if you want a career in professional sports.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are not any clubs or bars but that's how I would prefer. Going to college I need my sleep and my type of party on the weekend doesn't involve drugs, alcohol, or anything that my mom wouldn't mind coming to.

Local Area: If you like the outdoors there is plenty to do. Other than that you have what any other typical town would have like theaters and bowling. It is an extremely safe town. People are very friendly.

Weather: The weather is not great but it's not the worst thing in the world. The thing I dislike the most is the wind other than that is isn't too terrible.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It is a church school and is not used. I can honestly say I don't know one person on campus who uses. It's prohibited on campus to even have any drugs or alcohol so there really isn't any issue which I appreciate.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It has just been such a headache getting financial aid and it has taken so long. I have never had so much trouble with financial aid before. It is causing many other issues because we need the financial aid really bad and are still waiting on it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's not a bunch of variety but it is good enough for the town. There are awesome student discounts which I love and use as much as I can and is the main reason I even consider going out to eat.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school is strict, especially when it comes to the honor code. However, I've never had a problem with the strictness, simply because it was something that I agreed to upon coming here. We agree to certain things, and the school holds us to that.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: The local atmosphere is definitely homey. It's a small town, with a lot of charm to it, and while it may not be super-busy, it's an enjoyable place to live.

Party Scene: The school always has things for students to do. They always give opportunities to socialize, and to simply hang out with fellow students.

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived off-campus this semester and the last, and I absolutely love it. My apartments are well-maintained, and easy to obtain and live in, not to mention most off-campus apartments are close to campus anyway, only being a short fifteen minute walk away.

Scholarships: Our school gives scholarships to kids who have good grades--I have friends who, upon getting a 4.0 grade-point average, have had all of their tuition paid for by the school. If you do well in school, you will be rewarded.

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.
