4 College Sophomore

Administration: They are very strict when it comes to the honor code but that is what makes this place special. No one really is wanting to do that stuff anyways, and so it just makes it less stressful since you avoid peer pressure.

Scholarships: They do tend to give for academic purposes. If you do well in school you might get one but I feel like it is impossible to get a need based scholarship.

Off-Campus Dining: Average. That is the best word to describe it. There are just not very many options. Yes, there is a lot of fast food but if you want a nice restaurant, go elsewhere. The nicest place here is Applebee's

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are no varsity sports but they do offer a lot of intramural sports which does make up for it.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: To be honest you have to create it yourself. There isn't too much to do.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's just not very comfortable. Yes, it's close to campus but other than that it is just not worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are mostly really helpful and the small class sizes are great.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is fairly cheap and affordable. The biggest con is that very few places offer a good amount of parking. It's difficult to find a place to park.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The library offers a lot of computers for students to use. There are also a lot of computer labs throughout each of the buildings

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Rexburg pretty much shuts down after 11 so you really have to go to Idaho Falls or go to friends houses after that and there is a curfew.

Academics: We have a pretty good variety. Some programs are better than others so it depends on what you want to go in to. Work load depends on your major.

4 College Junior

Academics: I really like the engineering program. The work load is pretty steep but the program is great.

4 College Junior

Majors: The ME major has a high cource load. You will spend a lot of time studying but I like it.

College Junior

Majors: I haven't done my internship yet.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed going to school here. The education is great and so are the people. It has been really fun!

3 College Junior

Transportation: There is really no transportation except for off campus activities but you can really walk everywhere you need to go in around 10 min.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Well there are some good looking girls I don't really pay attention to the guys.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There is a strong international presents and a lot f international groups on campus. Everyone that I have seen has been very pleasant and excepting, there is not a feeling of prejudice at all.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is a little pricey no matter where you go here.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: The library is bursting with computers and I have come upon computer labs in almost every building that I didn't know were in the building. Printing is available in the library and various other campus locations.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The strongest drugs to found on this campus are Ibuprofen. Drugs are not part of this campus life, there is no peer pressure to take part in drug use nor have illegal drugs been seen on this campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are few persons of Greek ethnicity attending this campus. Why? I do not know. I have met and interviewed one of the Greek students about his life and about life in Greece-which was very informative and I was honored to get the opportunity to do so. However, I don't think the Greek life has much if any influence at this campus simply because there are so few in attendance here (as far as I know there are no fraternities or sororities on this campus).

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There really are not many places to eat off campus unless you are willing to drive at least 40 minutes to the nearest 'large' town. Not many restaurants can stay in business very long in Rexburg because during the time that students are gone, the town is pretty vacant. Also, there is not a lot of parking in town so people really do not want to take the time to drive somewhere just to have to end up walking 5 or 6 blocks to the restaurant anyways. So this provides for very limited eating varieties.

Majors: There are a lot of things provided on campus for my major. I am a graphic design major and the teachers really take the time to show and describe how to use the different resources on campus that will help us with our projects. The faculty mentors are always more than willing to help out as well. If I could do it all over again I would. I feel like I learn a lot without being thrown under the bus to fend for myself when I struggle. I do worry about finding a job sometimes because it seems like we are more sheltered being at a religious school, but it is our own perogative to have to go out and explore other areas of our field that is not taught within the school.

Majors: It was nerve racking applying for my program, but it is not life or death if you do not get accepted. My application process consisted of making a graduation plan with all of my classes picked out until I graduate. I had to go over that with a councilor and get it approved. That took a bit of time since the college advising centers tend to have odd operation hours, so it takes a bit of planning to get in and see a councilor. I also had to fill out an application form and submit it with a portfolio of my work. For those who do not make it into the program, there is a general program that you can fall back into as well, so it does not affect when you will graduate, just the specificity of your degree.

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.
