4 College Freshman

Athletics: Though there isn't an established varsity team for the college. Intermural sports are fun and exciting to watch and play.

Off-Campus Housing: I love the off campus life! You have so much more freedom then on campus!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We do not have sports teams, we just have intramural sports.

1 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They base your financial aid off of your parents income, but the only problem is my parents do not pay for my school, i do!

Administration: The honor code is really enforced at school. You are the only one who is accountable for your actions.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have not really heard of many sexual assault cases so i do not know how they are handled.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: It is way too small of a town for me!

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Since Rexburg is such a small town the food is pretty bad. To get any good food you have to drive about 30 min to the next town.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: We are LDS so that means the parties are always free of drugs and alcohol. It is just fun to meet new people, dance and have a good clean time!

3 College Senior

Scholarships: It's pretty easy to get financial aid, but at the beginning of the year when everyone is also trying to get it, it can take forever for them to process all the paperwork.

Campus Housing: You are close to classes which is nice, and it's relatively easy to get into. They are not the nicest dorms, and they all look the same. Also whole buildings are separated by gender, so it's kind of weird.

Athletics: BYU-I does not have professional sports, so that whole culture is lacking from the school. So school spirit isn't really a thing here. BYU-I does have intramural which are popular but don't have a huge following.

Overall Experience: The alumni network is really good, and there are a fair amount of recruiters that come to campus. I think it depends a lot on your major to be honest. The career center is pretty helpful and it is really easy to network, because of the church connections. I think anyone who comes to this school from an IDS background kind of knows what they are getting into.

Local Area: There is a whole lot of nothing in Southeast Idaho, and Rexburg is right in the middle of that. Rexburg doesn't have a lot going for it, but there are some cool spots. A lot of the time you will only see other students, so there isn't a lot of interaction with the locals. Idaho Falls is about a 45 minute drive and there is more to do there, a lot more to do there. If you love the outdoors, you would be in heaven. Idaho has a lot to offer there, and BYU-I is pretty close to Yellowstone.

Health & Safety: BYU-I is located in Southeast Idaho, so you feel pretty safe. Most of the students are Mormon, so they are a lot more conservative than students you would find at other schools. So overall you do feel 100% safe.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I think the Off-campus housing at BYU-I is the same as most housing at other schools. Some of the buildings are a lot older and so they are not as nice, but the pay off is that they are a cheaper. You can choose to live at a much nicer apartment complex but it will be expensive. The one thing that BYU-I does do that is annoying is that they don't allow apartments to build private rooms anymore, so if you want a private room you have to do a little bit of searching.

3 College Student

Athletics: Most athletic activities and facilities are not team associated. They are only held by individuals and small groups of people.

Off-Campus Housing: There are so many options for housing here in Rexburg. It is a little on the expensive side though seeing as how there are most generally 6 people per apartment.

Campus Housing: The housing overall is nice but a little on the pricey side. That is to be expected though since the school has such low tuition costs.

Off-Campus Dining: There are of course the normal chain restaurants but there are also some places that are unique to this little town. Chinese and Thai places that are just amazing. The diversity is great, but not so much so that you can't decide where to eat.

Health & Safety: Rexburg Idaho is a small little college town with most of the residents being members of the LDS church. The crime rate here is practically inexistent! I have no worries about living here. Call it happy valley, if you will.

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.
