4 College Freshman

Majors: Its great having a specific program so you can get to know people taking the same classes as you. The school offers many opportunities to focus on a major and to help get started on your career.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The school prohibits drugs and alcohol. You can get kicked out of school for using drugs or alcohol. There is no peer pressure to drink alcohol or use drugs. I have never seen anyone who uses drugs or drinks. I have heard there was a drug bust on campus and that off campus parties have people who drink or do drugs.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The airport is over a half hour away from campus so you have to find a ride. There is the Salt Lake Express which only runs on certain days and takes longer because of the many stops it has to take. Getting around Rexburg is pretty easy, you can pretty much walk anywhere you need to get to in Rexburg.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty small. Living on campus is nice mostly because you are right there where your classes are. The social atmosphere is the small whether you live on campus or off. It is up to the students to participate in activities. There are many opportunities to participate in social activities.

5 College Junior

Technology: Personal computers are important for certain majors, but I would recommend everyone have one. There are plenty of campus computers and labs, but for time you're not on campus doing school work or for taking notes in class, a personal computer is important. One of my classes (excel) required me to have a personal computer in class to be able to take the quiz and do the assignments.

4 College Junior

Local Area: The locals have a great attitude toward the students. It is quite a small town and the curfew is strictly enforced so there's not much nightlife. There are some fun things to do around the town though. The mall and other shopping is about 30 minutes away.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is extremely safe on campus. There are no drugs, alcohol, or violence. We have an honor code that is strictly enforced

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Mostly everyone being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints makes the students very conservative. The is little racial diversity, but a fair amount does indeed exist. Mostly everyone is accepted by others; I haven't seen any trouble with that. The beliefs are basically the same as well as the standards which leads to little diversity in politics as a whole.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have thoroughly enjoyed off campus housing. I have lived in an apartment with five roommates. The niceness of the complexes vary depending on the location, their age, and size. The costs vary as well and are reasonable considering what is included. It is easy to apply for the housing and definitely worth it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I do enjoy the major program that I am a part of, which is sociology, but it is definitely hard work. I would choose to enter this program again, but I would also consider majors. My career goals have to with either the counseling side of sociology or more of a criminology side of sociology, and as of now I am more leaning towards criminology. I had concerns about finding a career much like any other student especially if I do not go to graduate school which is highly unlikely.

5 College Freshman

Majors: There are no pre-requisites for the major, there are just a set of core courses to be completed over the years, along with a few other required courses. Other than the few requirements there are a large composition of courses to choose from to complete the major. The only difficulties I have had are making sure this is what I want to do and partly the hard classes.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at this university, it is something that is not an option.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My experience with financial aid took some time, but it wasn't hard to get it just took time. I know from friends that they had difficulties that were not their fault, but for the majority of people applying can be easily completed, tracked, and collected online.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school does not have any varsity sports. The intramural sports are very popular and there is a decent amount of variety. There are different sports, levels for teams, and the choice between competitive or recreational. There are many opportunities all around campus to participate in athletics. There are also many facilities available to all students that are very nice and easy for everyone to enjoy.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is not much variety in the off campus dining unless one drives to Idaho Falls. The cheapest places are fast foods places which are obviously not the healthiest choices. There are few places that offer student discounts and few places that are actually interesting to check out and few places to go to often. There are places close to housing, but the better options are not within walking distance.

3 College Freshman

Administration: As far as in the classroom strictness varies from class to class depending on the teacher and subject. In classes that relate to a persons major the teachers are mostly relying on the students to pull their weight. We as students are expected to be prepared whether we are in class or not. Only some teachers associate attendance with grades. On the other hand strictness in terms of the social aspect is highly present. The church leaders especially are concerned with students following the honor code and the breaking of these rules; depending on which rule is broken the leaders do not tolerate the breaking of the honor code.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: When a crime is committed on campus it is usually taken care of quickly, respectably, and then most everybody then moves on. I have never felt unsafe on campus which is comforting considering how much time is spent on campus. I have never first hand witnessed something bad happening on campus which shows that there is a relativity high level on control and safety on the premises.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love that the school, students, teachers, and classes are all centered around the gospel of Jesus Christ. I was able to live in a wonderful apartment and was blessed with fabulous roommates. I have enjoyed the teachers I have had and the classes I have taken, especially what I have learned. There is very unique dance community and I have been able to be a part of three different dance teams these past two semesters. The requirement to take religion classes had definitely helped me grow a lot along with the ward I have been privileged to attend. I would definitely choose to attend this university again because of all the neat experiences and friendly people.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The work load is definitely heavier than any high school in multiple aspects and in some classes there is still busy work. The foundations classes are loaded with a ton of interesting information and learning materials, but can be easily completed without retaining the knowledge and without giving ones hardest work. As for my major there is set of core classes that have to be passed to graduate. The core classes are formulated to prepare us for sociological jobs in the future and are focused heavily on research. The research based classes provide a respectable amount of workload and make sure that we work for our grade. The teachers make sure to prepare us for our near futures including choosing a career path, finding an internship, and selecting a fitting grad school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are not many options to live on campus, but that is okay because most people live in apartments off campus anyway. The on campus housing is right in the center so it is close to all the buildings. The dorms are mostly made up off four people, two bedrooms, usually with bunk beds, but many of them have kitchens which is nice. The cost is average, less than living in an apartment, but not too bad. The social aspects are decent, but there are more apartment complexes with a better social atmosphere. The process is easy and can be done quickly online.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Not a ton of variety in what's on the menu but a fair amount of places to choose from for the size of the town.

3 College Junior

Weather: It's good in the summer and bad in the winter.

2 College Junior

Parking: it's costly. I would recommend walking or riding a bike..

3 College Junior

Transportation: Walk drive or bike. Those are your options

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.
