4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is little to no crime in Rexburg, ID, so safety and security isn't a big concern. The health center is just as good as a community care center. Nothing too great about it. It takes a long time to be seen by someone, and the doctors are average quality.

3 College Junior

Transportation: The only way to get around is by car, foot, or bicycle. There is no public transportation options.

3 College Junior

Athletics: BYU-Idaho doesn't offer any varsity sports, however, they do have intramural sports. Most of the sports are either for personal advancement (running, hiking, etc.) since they don't want sports interfering with studies. But there are a lot of classes to take if you are into sports, such as swimming, basketball, raquetball, soccer, etc. And then there are outdoor sports classes such as kayaking, backpacking, skiing/snowboarding, etc.

4 College Junior

Academics: I am in the Recreation Management program, and it has been such a great opportunity. Every week there are emails of different opportunities available to me, including jobs, internships, socials, or volunteer work. It is a laid back group, and I've been impressed with the caliber of skills that the teachers have.

4 College Junior

Academics: Overall, BYU-Idaho has great professors. I haven't been let down by any of them. The curriculum and workload can be a little overwhelming, but it is all meant to teach you diligence and responsibility.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are a lot of opportunities for any type of student. From athletics to arts to socialites, BYU-I really tries to offer opportunities for students to better themselves and learn new things as well. Also, the campus is very relaxing and aesthetically pleasing, which is great for studying or just finding a spot to relax. There are many different clubs depending on what you are majoring in, and that offers opportunities of getting to know your colleagues.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: Being a religious person, it is great to be able to go to a religious school where people generally feel the same that you do. The teachers are excellent, and really care about their students. Socially, you can find something to do everyday on campus.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a good mix of styles and interests, but since it is a religious school, of course most the students will lean more towards one end of the spectrum. There isn't a lot of "partying" and it tends to be a little more judgmental because it is a highly religious town as well. There is a lot of social life on campus, including dancing, bowling, sports, arts/crafts, and other activities.

3 College Junior

Parking: If you want a parking permit, it is $25-30 per semester, and it is very hard to find a spot. Even if you find a spot, it is most likely far away from your classroom. There is a free parking lot, but it is about a quarter mile or more from most the class buildings. You can also buy a city parking permit, but again, hard to find a spot and the price is about the same.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drinking is not allowed on campus, and students respect that. There's almost no drinking with students.

5 College Junior

Technology: They suggest you bring your own laptop, but there are many free computers in the library that are easy to use.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Everyone is very moral here. I feel safe leaving my stuff and knowing it won't get stolen.

4 College Junior

Parking: Parking services are easy to work with. Parking is super enforced.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Certain housing offers shuttles. Campus has special rental cars.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've never been in the campus housing but I've heard it's nice.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: I love the weather! I am from a warmer climate so I am loving all the snow! It is pretty cold and windy sometimes though.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: There are plenty of computers on campus and there are printers in every building. The cost of printing is very low. If you live off campus you may want your own computer just for convenience. However, some off campus apartment complexes do have computer labs.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The campus is strict but I knew that before I came. It makes for a great atmosphere.

3 College Senior

Local Area: I hate the freezing cold and I hate the super hot. That is what it is in Rexburg, Idaho... COLD and HOT! Not a ton of jobs around here unless you are catering to the students or the people who cater to the students.

4 College Senior

Diversity: People here are accepting but might not realize what is going on around them.

5 College Senior

Parking: They ticket you sometimes when you shouldn't be, mostly I think because of laziness. But usually you can argue a parking ticket and they delete it. At least one per semester.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are some creepers but there are a lot of really great people with a encouragement to date and start a family.

4 College Senior

Academics: My major is unique. It allowed me to graduate with my degree and have multiple focuses.

4 College Senior

Academics: Although a lot of things are focused on the predominate religion I have learned a lot to make me successful in my life, in and out of a career.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the school here and most people I meet. I have had a learning experience while also making myself into a better person.

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.
