5 College Student

Campus Housing: Most of the housing is actually off-campus. It's amazing. All have working kitchens that are in great condition. The girls are fantastic! And rent is cheap! Only $1,225/semester for a private bedroom!

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: Quality food at a pretty good price.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great school, lacks a normal social life. It's a religion school so all the rules are strict and apply not only while you are on campus but also are enforced where you live.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: BYU-Idaho is very strict on where the students are allowed to live. Off campus housing has to be approved by the school or you can't live there. Your address is linked to your student account that is verified by the management of your complex and if your information doesn't add up, you get blocked from registering! The unapproved housing is so much cheaper, but as a student you are forced to live within the approved housing places which jack up the prices because they know that you can't go anywhere else.

Off-Campus Dining: The food in the small town of Rexburg is not the best. We have Applebee's but that really the only sit-down and date night type restaurant around here. With having an entire college with only one restaurant to go to date night, it takes forever to get a table and the service and less than ideal.

3 College Junior

Administration: This school has an Honor Code policy which is pretty good on principle, but I feel like it is very impractical. The honor code is really strict so it often doesn't allow situations that are out of your control to be accepted. For example, I had a roommate who's car got a flat tire and it took her forever to get roadside assistance. Because of that, she missed curfew by a half hour and still got into trouble for it.

Scholarships: BYU-Idaho has opportunities for scholarships, but everyone in the financial aid office has no idea what they are doing and are extremely unhelpful so actually getting a school scholarship is next to impossible.

Party Scene: Im an introvert person and normally I have too much homeward to really go out on weekends. Ive heard about come parties that sound really fun! I just normal don't go out to often.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is awesome and totally convent. However, in my financial situation I can't afford it very often. The food on campus is rather expensive, but its nice that its there incase I forget my lunch at home, or I just can't leave campus that day until really late.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Its so hard to find housing as married students in Rexburg! I love this atmosphere of Rexburg, but the housing options for married housing are either in terrible condition with mold on the walls for cheap, or okay-looking places with rent prices that are just completely unaffordable. There are government subsidized housing, but every place we have visited trying to get in, theres about a 2 year waiting list.

4 College Junior

Academics: I haven't decided on a major, but the school provides many opportunities for all kinds of majors.

Academics: It seems like most professors genuinely care for their students. The curriculum and workload is a lot harder than most schools, but I know I am getting a quality education.

Local Area: Rexburg is such a small town. College students make up a majority of the population. There isn't anything special about this town that I would stay for after graduating.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The people at this school share the same views as me. I find that really helpful when it comes to making friends. I think it's also great how people come from all over the country to attend this school.

Health & Safety: The town is very small and seems to be safe. There are campus police and the campus is well lit at night. There are also emergency buttons throughout campus.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I would choose the same school. I love this school and it has helped me to grow as a person.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am happy with the college I chose. It's a great university.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school does a great job of providing students with resources and job opportunities.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek Life does not exist at this school.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The downside to this school is that there are no organized sports. It's all intramural. That being said, the facilities for students are great. They have huge fields for sports and the largest gym I've used. They provide tons of equipment for students to stay active.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: After living off-campus, I can say first had that it's the best option for students at BYUI. It's a lot more social than the dorms considering that most students live off-campus. It's a good walking distance from campus as well.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining mainly consists of fast food chain places, but places like the Taco Bus and Costa Vida make up for it.

3 College Junior

Administration: I understand this is a private institution and I agreed to the rules, but to me they seem a little over the top. We are adults.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I had a few issues receiving some scholarships, but it wasn't the school's fault. The financial aid team responds to emails in timely manner and is very helpful.

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.
