4 College Freshman

Local Area: I love the small town feel, but if I need anything, I can always go to Idaho Falls.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: With students from all over the country, it would be nice to have a large airport closer than Salt Lake City.

Off-Campus Housing: Unmarried students are required to live in university-approved housing.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: I love the LDS atmosphere on campus. Students are diverse economically and ethnically, but everyone shares the same morals.

Local Area: Like I've said in previous surveys, Rexburg is a small town. I love it, but it proves difficult for others.

Transportation: The school has a ride board on their website where people can post when they are going in and out of town, how many seats they have in their car, where they are going, and how much they are charging for gas money. It's worked most of the time for me. I also use the Salt Lake Express whenever I need to take a trip to Utah or somewhere along the route if the ride board doesn't work out.

Technology: I usually don't need to take my laptop to class, but you do need internet access to turn in most homework assignments, and sometimes even tests, quizzes, projects, and group work.

Weather: The winter feels like an eternity. We still attend classes, no matter how much snow is on the ground. We grin and bear it.

Diversity: Because it is a private college that is run by the LDS church, most of the students are LDS and are from the United States. However, I have met students who are not LDS, as well as international students.

Drug Safety: No drugs, no alcohol. Ever. It's pretty rare when someone does anything, and when caught, the school handles the situation.

Guys & Girls: I enjoy the guys at my school for the most part. I'm grateful to go to a school where we all have very similar standards and beliefs. We kind of lift each other up the more we get to know one another.

Scholarships: I haven't dug too deep into the financial aid processes that BYUI has to offer, but I know that they are efficient and ready to help you in any way they can.

Party Scene: Our school, as I have said before, does not promote a bar/club setting as a nightlife activity. We find other ways to entertain ourselves, such as a pick-up game from any sport, ice-skating, movie nights, game nights, going to on-campus shows, bowling, night games at the local park, etc. We have a good time.

Greek Life: BYU-Idaho does not have a Greek system, which I am very content with. It makes the campus more unified.

Off-Campus Dining: The school pretty much makes up the town. Rexburg is a small area. I love it, but dining out can be difficult. It does save us money though!

Campus Food: I work for BYUI's Food Services department. We take good care of the students by following all health regulations and by providing variety to our menu. We do our best to provide specials and new items every day.

Off-Campus Housing: Parking is sometimes difficult, especially if you want to have guests over at your apartment. Each complex can be very different; it does require some research to find a complex that best suits you.

Campus Quality: BYUI offers so many different things for students. We have an Outdoor Resource center that allows students to rent outdoor equipment at a low and reasonable price. There are recreational and competitive sports teams that any student is eligible to sign up for. There are a plethora of clubs that a student can choose to join, such as a comedy club, a musical theater club, or even an oldies movie-watching club. There are plenty of fields, gyms, courts, and space to participate in a wide variety of fun and exciting events. There are shows almost every weekend that students can attend, most of them being free of charge. The library opens early and closes late, allowing students a great amount of access time to the helpful tools found there.

Campus Quality: BYUI is very unique. Every Tuesday, the school hosts a devotional that all students, faculty, and even the public can attend. These devotionals last about an hour and discuss an aspect of the LDS gospel. It is very uplifting for both students and faculty; it creates unity within the university. All students are required to follow and Honor Code. Within this honor code, we students agree to refrain from any use of illegal substance, alcohol, or disorderly conduct. We agree to dress modestly according to LDS church standards. We follow a curfew that is set in order to help us maintain healthy, long-term habits. While some believe the honor code is restricting, I find it liberating. It keeps me from having to deal with the binding consequences of bad decisions that could be made under, for example, the influence of alcohol. These are just two small examples of ways that differentiate BYUI from most college campuses.

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.
