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.

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.

Party Scene: I love the fact that drinking and drugs are pretty much nonexistent here at BYU-I. We still know how to have fun and enjoy ourselves without having to use or abuse any substances. :)

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.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: It is pretty strict and there is not that much to do unless you want to drive over a half hour to Idaho Falls. If you have a car and people help with gas it is tolerable if you do not have a car it kind of sucks.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is pretty strict but we agreed to the rules and none of it really gets in the way of my academic life. It actually helps with that because most people stop making noise a little after curfew and most people can get a goodnight's sleep. It kind of effects social life because even if you are having a great fun and safe time we still have to be home by a certain time.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I really like it. My professors are great. They are helpful. They are helping me learn what I need to so that when I start my program, it will be easier for me. I will be able to expect what is coming my way.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It is fun to go to these parties. They are clean (for the most part) and you can just have fun without having to worry about creepy drunk people hitting on you. It is more of a chance to just have fun with friends and grow your relationships.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The help is there if you need them. They always seem to get there at the right time to break up something that shouldn't be happening. They are friendly and willing to help you if you need it.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: There really isn't much to do up in Rexburg. There are a couple bowling alleys, and a few restaurants. It is hard to find things to do every weekend that are different, so a lot of people will go down to Idaho Falls and do things there. It isn't too far away, but it would be nice to not have to leave and drive 30 miles to go do something fun.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are very good at helping and fixing situations. They are all very nice. Sometimes you can catch them on a bad day and its just not good for anybody, but everyone has days like that, even the students. They are all willing to help if we need it, which I appreciate very much.

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.
