1 College Student

Party Scene: There isn't a bar that I go to and even if there were I most likely still wouldn't go.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are mostly chain food restaurants, but I'm not complaining they are cheap and the food is great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love the faculty that I have had. They push you but also try to help you out where and when they can. There are, of course, some teachers that aren't my favorite. But even they are bearable. I never dreaded going to class.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: There is so much on campus. Lots of open space and outside seating. The Library has 3 floors, one for quite talking, one is silent and the other is for group work, allowing lots of talking. The athletic centers are also great quality and very accessible. There are activities every night and weekend. Every building has somewhere cool you can go to hang out study, or even make a fun date out of (i.e. planetarium, game room, art gallery, etc.). Student life can be awesome if you take advantage of what's there.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I definitely feel safe on campus. I can walk home at night alone and not worry too much. I haven't had to really look in to the health care much because I haven't been sick. But it is cheap and accessible from what I hear.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafeteria does have lots of options. Most of the popular dining out areas are close to campus. The quality is descent, better than high school, but still cafeteria food. The Chinese in the area is surprisingly good. Some eating out places are better priced than others. Plenty of options.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is not a party school. Campus does have multiple activities going on every night of the week, though, that students attend with friends and meet new people.

3 College Student

Athletics: As I mentioned previously, there are few varsity sports teams.

4 College Student

Guys & Girls: We're all kind of the same because we're living in this little Mormon sub-culture.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: The students have many opportunities they may not have at other schools to form clubs, organize activities, serve in leadership positions, gain experience teaching/performing, etc.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: There are a lot of activities going on all the time. Competitive sports are limited but there are plenty of inter-mural sports. The library has many available resources and places for students to have study sessions, work on group projects, etc.

1 College Student

Greek Life: I don't think there are any fraternities or sororities. There is no Greek life.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: This campus is the safest place I know of on the earth.

3 College Student

Administration: We have much higher standards and a much stricter honor code than most universities.

3 College Student

Parking: There are a lot of parking lots. Most students don't need to drive to school because they live close enough to the campus to walk.

4 College Student

Campus Food: I don't usually eat on campus but I know there are small cafes or at least vending machines in most buildings on campus and the main cafeteria has many options and convenient hours.

5 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: A majority of students live off-campus. There are many apartment complexes surrounding campus and only a few dorms. I have heard that in the next few years the university is going to try to do away with on-campus housing all-together. There are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to off-campus housing, and most apartments are very affordable.

4 College Student

Scholarships: The financial aid process was relatively painless.

3 College Student

Party Scene: There are no bars or clubs in town. There are occasional parties around town and frequent shows featuring local bands at the local burger place.

4 College Student

Diversity: It's a Mormon school so most everyone that attends is a member of the same church. There is still discrepancies in students beliefs and there are a few radicals but in general, we're all kind of the same.

4 College Student

Technology: There are always computers available for use on campus in addition to wireless connection everywhere on campus.

3 College Student

Transportation: I either walk or get a ride from a roommate. I have never used the transportation, I have only heard about it.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: They try their best with the housing here. Some housings could improve but as I have said they are nice and have good living availability for people to live comfortably while going to school.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We don't have varsity sports here, just intramurals. I wish that varsity sports would come back so we could play against other colleges. The intramurals though are fun to watch and lots of people get involved in them.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Rexburg is a small city with a nice little vibe. You for sure get to know other students pretty fast because it is small town. I couldn't live here though because I just don't see many job opportunities here that I want to do but I do love going to school here!

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.
