4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live where I live. They're not the most beautiful apartments in the world, but the people and social life make it more than worth it!

3 College Freshman

Weather: Sometimes it can be pretty cold, and windy. But there are a lot of days (especially in spring and summer) that are gorgeous!!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are some options, but not a crazy amount of options. It's a small college town. But there is still some really good places.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Because it's part of the honor code there aren't really any problems with drugs. On occasion I'll her a story or two about drugs, but it's rare.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love the classes and the teachers. They care about the students very much and help as much as they can.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never had a problem with either. I don't hear of problems with anybody I know.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I'm usually home studying and doing homework. But when I do get to go out with friends it's a ton of fun!

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very strict when it comes to certain things like curfew, drinking and drug use.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I often seen security around campus. I feel safe at night walking alone on campus back to my apartment from class.

3 College Freshman

Technology: I have never really used the computers at school because there are a lot of students using them and I couldn't always find a computer to use when needed.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly chain restaurants like McDonalds or Dairy Queen. There aren't too many restaurants and they are farther away from campus.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I never went to a bar/club. There are two places that are pretty well known, Sammy's and Scoops. I did not participate much in the nightlife because I was really busy with studying and homework.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The is a lot of work but there are many opportunities to receive help in classes from teachers and peers. The library has floors to study with groups and a floor for quiet studying.

4 College Freshman

Weather: During the Spring there is a lot to do because it gets so warm. During the winter there are fewer things to do because not a lot of people like to go outside because it gets so cold. The school does offer many different activities to participate in.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I haven't received scholarships or financial aid even though I need it. It's difficult to understand what the school needs for the applications.

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.

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.
