3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is a shuttle to take student to campus. It is hard to get to the cheaper stores like Walmart and Albertsons without transportation. My advice would be to make friends with those few who have a car.

Party Scene: I am an older married student, so nightlife at school does not apply, but I know that my young adult children have a great time with their peers and are always safe here.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love designing my own degree from the options available. This way I choose nearly all of my classes my way. And the Generals are well rounded.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It is very windy in Rexburg, but school never closes for the weather unless there is a power outage or below -20 degrees.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I know that we have campus security/police, but the students' behavior is top notch, so we don't need them as much. There is very little theft and the only theft I have heard of has been after hours of equipment behind unlocked doors or the like. Health safety is great and public safety rules are posted in restrooms and there are also emergency beacon lights in different areas across campus.

5 College Freshman

Administration: It's super chill if you do what you're supposed to.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We have students from all over the world, but as a Church-based university, religion and sexual orientation are not very diverse.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As with everything else, extremely satisfied with my experiences

3 College Freshman

Weather: Honestly, Rexburg weather is insane, but I love it

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love all the options we have!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tuition is extremely low to begin with, paperwork is always a hassle

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Pretty much everybody that I know who lives off campus, myself included, love it

3 College Freshman

Transportation: A few housing complexes have shuttles to and from campus, but most everything in town is within walking distance. For long distance we have the Salt Lake Express shuttle.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are at least a few students in all of my classes that are from a different country. This keeps the campus diverse to a decent level but nothing extreme. They offer many clubs and organizations for other cultures and backgrounds. Very accepting of diversity.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major! I am so happy that I chose to go in to Child Development. I thoroughly enjoy the classes being taught that not only help me earn a degree, but also help me with life skills that I will need when I am a wife and mother. The classes I take are smaller, so I have more student teacher interaction and am able to receive help when needed. We do have a bigger workload with the shorter semesters, but it definitely helps us to further our education. The curriculum is easy to follow and is integrated into our beliefs as a church. We apply what we learn into our daily lives and have time to reflect on the things we read about. I have had the opportunity to work in my department, and it has been the greatest job I have ever had. The faculty is easy to get along with and they help maintain that happy spirit here on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: We have an Honor Code here at BYU Idaho. Instead of looking at it like a set of rules, we as students prefer to see it as a living testimony we are willing to take on. There are rules such as curfew to keep us safe at night. We don't want anything to happen that would keep us unclean. The dress code allows for a more formal atmosphere, where it is easier to learn and helps us prepare for what the world will be like after we graduate and enter the workforce. The students keep the Spirit of Ricks on campus and we are able to have the Spirit of the Lord here when they adhere to the Honor Code. These guidelines don't hinder our social lives, they help them become better because we are careful in the way we spend our time and interact with others.

Off-Campus Dining: We have a lot of the typical chain restaurants with a few different places to eat. The cost is fairly decent, you wouldn't break bank by going out to eat a few times a month. The food places are within a mile of campus, so many students are willing to walk there when it is nice outside. There are several student discounts available. We have a few different restaurants that aren't the typical chains, such as New Fongs Chinese restaurant, Sammy's Diner, and Traditional Tai restaurant.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a typical Idaho small town. I have lived in Idaho all my life so this isn't anything new, but I love the atmosphere we have here. There are many activities on campus for students and the community to be involved in. There are also a lot of activities off campus. We have an old style diner with excellent pie shakes, ice caves, sand dunes for bonfires, parks, and a mountain close by to go hiking. This town has a safe feeling and I would be comfortable with walking anywhere after dark alone. There are many recreational areas close by where students can go horseback riding, skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, and several other outdoor activities. The students from bigger cities find it hard to live in a smaller town, but they overall enjoy the comfortable and more intimate feeling.

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.
