4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always something to do and somewhere to attend. There are always options for what you are looking for. Nearly everything is in walking distance. For the most part, it is easy to discern parties that will serve alcohol and those that won't.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: It was a culture shock for me to attend a school that was so drug-free. I have seen a fair amount of alcohol but rarely have i seen or hear mention of drugs on or near campus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone is essentially of the same religion with few exceptions. I have heard of some disregard for minorities but I have never seen or experienced it directly. There is a fair amount of international students. None of which I have ever heard complain about acceptance. However, I am not necessarily a part of any minority group so I cannot speak for those who are.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Because everything is so condensed there is really no need for public transportation. I have never ridden the shuttle that can take students to Utah, but I have heard it is very convenient.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's the best in the spring/summer, but I hate the snow and it can be absolutely freezing. That's not my favorite but it's all worth it in the spring.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: This aspect gets a lot of knocks from some people, but I appreciate the way school standards are enforced. The students clearly have the agreement they make to attend here laid out to them and they're held accountable.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Only a few programs like nursing are very competitive and that's something I like a lot. There isn't a ton of pressure about getting into programs. After getting through generals, it's pretty straightforward when it comes to the majors.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm a business management major and I think it's a great program. It's unique in the sense that all students are at some point part of a small team that creates their own on-campus business that they run all on their own over the course of the semester.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: It's not a place for everyone, but it works great for me. It can be tough without a car because the best things to do are short drives out of town at outdoors locations. It's great if you're a skier or snowboarder, and if you like anything outdoors.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: More and more international student are enrolling, but the LDS faith and that connection to a more conservative political point of view tone diversity down by a large amount.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most students actually don't live in the dorms. There are many more off campus apartments. If you live on the west side of campus, you are right in the think of things and have a lot more fun. Most of the apartments are a ten minute walk to most classes.

Local Area: The people in town are very nice, and it's a lovely place to live, but there really is not much to do besides what the school offers.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Unless you have a car or have a good friend who has a car, you are pretty much stuck where you are. There are no intra-city transportation options. You can forget about leaving town for the day if you don't have a car.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: 98% of the people who attend BYU-I are LDS (Mormon). The school is privately owned be the Church. There is not descrimination in the acceptance of a non lds person though. I live attend a school and being in an environment where everyone shares my standards, morals, and beliefs.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining is very average. It's the same chains we are all used to. There are some cute local restaurants, but not a lot. Not a fantastic variety.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My major is Art Eduatiin Composite. It was very easy for me to enter this major. I just clicked on it after getting accepted into school.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major. I love being able to do homework and projects that I absolutely enjoy. The teachers are great and my fellow students are great too.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The curfew and the honor code are very very strict policies. Not only are you held accountable for your adherence, but anyone who knows that you are breaking the rules is also held accountable. If your know about someone's rule breaking, you can be kicked out just as easily. It can be very hard to have a very active late night social life.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Rexburg is not a very large city to say the least. Many businesses close at 9 or 10. If you want to have a fun evening, then you need to look at things the school is doing or just plan something with your friends. It also doesn't make for an exciting when the single students' curfew is midnight every night. If you are looking for a party school BYU-I is not the place for you.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The only sports BYU-I offers are intramural. They discontinued collegiate sports several years ago. This was done so that the university could focus more on academics. While I understand the reasoning, I do not like the decision. I think the amount of school spirit really suffers because we have nothing we all can root for. This is also the reason the athletic facilities have not been updated.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the Physics program! There is a lot of help available to those who need it, and the program offers a lot of fun things to do with other students in the department. Every so often we get an email with internship and job opportunities (which I haven't yet taken advantage of), but the department is really helpful in helping us students get on our feet!

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I would definitely do it all over again! While it's been difficult sometimes, I have enjoyed myself, and met a lot of great people. I am hoping to get into nuclear engineering, and with the things that I've learned from this program I feel like I'm am well on my way! I don't have any major concerns about finding a job, but I haven't had much time to think too much about that.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't done a lot of off-campus dining personally, but from the small bit that I have done, the food is good. Sometimes it doesn't fill you up, but you do get a decent amount of food for your money (it is still a bit expensive though!).

4 College Senior

Administration: The strictness at school is "off the charts." Its nice because its for the well-being of the students, but It's tough because any slip-up is not likely to go unnoticed.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors are incredible, they go out of their way to help students succeed and pay attention to the needs of the students. The registration process is very simple, I've never had problems with registering for classes or anything. The workload depends on the class and the teacher, but I have always been able to manage A's in my classes with the occasional B. The cafeteria on campus is a very popular study area, as well as the top floor of the library.

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.
