2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing is extremely expensive considering the amount of people rooming in one apartment. However they are close to campus and safe.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We do not have sports however the intramural program is excellent.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I enjoy the food off-campus and really have never had complaints. They do all close fairly early but they abide by curfew so it is not necessarily a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I wanted to major in family history but they only have a minor. That is disappointing but I am so grateful they even have a minor.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: All of the classes are online which makes it more difficult.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid at this school is incredible. Scholarships are very accessible and I have been blessed by the amount they have offered me.

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.

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.
