4 College Sophomore

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.

Transportation: Rexburg is a small town--and it's very easy to get around just on foot. There is an airport a half hour away, and there is the wonderful Salt-Lake-Express that is here daily to take you as far as Provo, Utah when needed.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have never lived in campus housing, but all of the dorms that I have seen have always been nice, clean and a friendly place to live--if a little small at times.

5 College Freshman

Technology: There are always computer labs available for the student who doesn't have a laptop, and printing is also always available. And for the students with a laptop, the WIFI on campus is almost never down, and is very reliable.

Weather: Here in Rexburg, it's pretty snowy. I'm here September-April, and so far, it has snowed at least once a month. While snow is hard to drive/walk in, it does make our campus look beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: When it comes to acceptance, I feel that my school--Brigham Young University-Idaho--is very accepting of everyone around them. While we may not have the most diverse campus, we always accept those that are perhaps considered a minority, and we always strive to love them for who they are.

Off-Campus Dining: I've never dined off campus so I believe my rating is not very valid

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I feel like the uprisings are some of the worst parties to go to, too many NCMOs, so I try to avoid that scene

5 College Freshman

Academics: This college deserves much more attention for it's wonderful academics

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are students from all around the world, even those who aren't of the same faith but wanted to attend this college for its good atmosphere

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's nice because they hold a lot of responsibility on the students as adults but there are many students who definitely take advantage of the system

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not a very athletic person, but I know they are very popular with most of the people and there seems to be a good atmosphere about it.

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.
