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.

Drug Safety: There is virtually no drug/alcohol scene at BYUI, the school is very strict with its rules, plus its part of the LDS religion. If anyone does drink or do drugs, it is very under the radar and isn't really a social thing for fear of getting caught and kicked out.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't a whole lot of late-night options since the school has a curfew for students, so everything closes early. I think the city could use more ethnic ethnic restaurants because I feel like the students get tired of the same few options. Discounts and deals are available to students on a pretty regular basis. I think that Sammy's and Costa Vida are the two more popular places.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: The security is very present on campus and willing to help at any time. I feel very safe on campus especially since the school added emergency stations around campus. Overall Rexburg, ID is a very safe and quiet community so I've never really felt unsafe anywhere while I'm there for school.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I liked living in the dorms because they were very close to my classes. I lived in kitchen dorms so it was nice being able to cook a real meal if I wanted to, but the dorms have no cable or even TVs to watch movies, which was disappointing. The cost is low and affordable compared to other housing options, the social atmosphere is good because everyone is usually the same age (younger) and are always around each other. The only thing that I hated was that the rooms were shared so there's no privacy, and the RA/landlord is very strict.

4 College Senior

Majors: I'm a studio art major and I love the program at BYUI. The teachers are all very skilled in their field and are extremely helpful when students are struggling. The workloads are not necessarily overwhelming, just time consuming. Our facilities are amazing and the campus is constantly growing and rebuilding.

4 College Senior

Majors: I'm very happy with my the program that I'm in and I would definitely choose it again if I could. I hope to open up my own art studio and gallery, teach lessons, and work for commission on the side. I'm not too worried about finding a job in my field because I know I have a talent and I'll make it happen.

3 College Senior

Weather: LOTS OF SNOW, sometimes its awful, but it's great in spring

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I like the NEWER off-campus housing, the old is terrible

3 College Junior

Technology: The campus library comes equipped with a plethora of Dell computers. Dells are low-budget PCs. They get the job done though. Thankfully, they aren't Macs. Printing is hassle free. However, at times, the printer will have connectivity issues which can take a few hours to resolve. Despite the hiccup, the University Store has several printers for students to print assignments and so forth.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There isn't much diversity at this school, sadly. The most notable race is Caucasian followed by...

Since this is a church school, the beliefs here are mostly the same. With these beliefs comes a conservative attitude.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: This school is exciting for several reasons:

1) The campus itself was renovated a few years ago. It now comes with state-of-the art technology and modern style design.

2) Crime is exceptionally low, thanks to the high standards enforced.

3) Professors are wonder. They are passionate about their field and desire to prepare students for career and family life.

4) The social atmosphere is vibrant. There are many clubs and on-campus activities which cultivate relationships. This is school is fun.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus because everyone is so friendly and I don't feel any threat from the students at Brigham Young University in Idaho.

Technology: The internet on the schools computers are much better than trying to use the WiFi.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some places are pretty small but cheap. The more expensive, the nicer the apartment.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: People don't normally judge because someone sins differently than they do. 99.99% of the school is the same religion.

Party Scene: There's not that much going on normally. The school has a curfew that everyone is supposed to keep.

1 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Rexburg is very unpredictable. It's always miserable.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's something to do if you have any spare time and no job.

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.
