3 College Junior

Parking: I've never bought a permit from campus because I can usually walk to school or my wife will drop me off and pick me up. I think the permits are pretty expensive, and you have to choose a permit that determines which areas around campus you can park in, so you have to plan carefully where your classes are and be careful to only park in those places or you'll definitely get a ticket. Depending on which lot you park in and at what time, it can be easier or harder to find parking but during peak hours it's usually pretty difficult.

Party Scene: There is no "nightlife" or "club scene" as others would think of it at any other college. There are always fun activities going on, for example, outdoor recreation, service activities, dances, concerts, plays, talent shows, etc. The school keeps things clean and safe but tries to provide a variety of entertainment and places to release energy and take a break from stressful homework. Besides that, there are several places in town like movie theaters, bowling, trampoline gyms, and people throwing their own dance parties in their apartments!

Off-Campus Housing: The Housing Office on campus has a complete list of all available housing, on and off campus, which is pretty helpful because it compares prices and amenities and even plots them on a map of where they are compared to campus. Most housing complexes are actually off-campus. There are only a few dorms on campus, which are mostly occupied by freshman. There's a housing monopoly in Rexburg, so it's not very competitive, which keeps the prices higher than they should be. There are a lot of new complexes springing up all over town. They'll be brand new, but pretty expensive. Almost everything is either right across the street from campus to a few blocks away, so if you had to walk to school, it wouldn't be that hard if you just give yourself the right amount of time. Depending on where you live, sometimes there is limited parking, and often not enough visitor parking, so be careful!

Academics: The president of our school, Kim B. Clark, was previously the Dean of Business at Harvard, so obviously he's brought a few changes and upgrades to the business program here. A unique thing we have is the Integrated Business Core, or IBC, which is a real-life scenario that lasts one semester where the business students create their own business, sell things on campus and in the community, and keep track of expenses. They get a chance to practice what they've been learning for a few years and see how to apply it in real life. Also, internships are required during your off-track so you can start experiencing real businesses and learn on the job. The school also works really hard to help students find internships and even jobs after graduation.

Academics: The professors here are all wonderful! They really care about their students and helping them succeed and understand what they're learning. If you struggle in a class and go to the professor, they're willing to help you if you're willing to put forth the extra effort required. Registration can be difficult sometimes, but I honestly think it's probably the same anywhere. There are cool places to study all over campus, whether you want to be in some secluded spot where no one can find you or you need to study with a group or work on a project together, there's a place for everyone, indoor or outdoor.

Campus Quality: There are a lot of places provided that you can relax outside, which everyone takes full advantage of as long as it's still warm! The Ricks Gardens are a great part of the school that is also used for academic instruction for those studying landscaping and design. They are continuously working on some new addition to the Gardens for hands-on learning. Every year there is something new to explore and enjoy.

Campus Quality: In recent years, the campus has had a major makeover, adding onto buildings, in some cases rebuilding and redesigning parts of them, brand new landscaping and quad areas, etc. Everything is getting a new look and feel and it's all oriented towards the students and improving their experience.

Off-Campus Dining: I personally love going out to eat and there is not really anything to go to.

Guys & Girls: Since this is a religious school, we have a student honor code, which everyone on campus has to obey, so everyone dresses somewhat conservatively.

Local Area: Rexburg, Idaho is a very small college town with really nothing to do. Usually people go down to Idaho Falls to do something, but even there there is really nothing.

2 College Freshman

Weather: I think that it depends on everyone's personal weather preference, but I hate the cold, and it is usually really cold, as it is in Idaho.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: We have a student health center and also a free counseling center, which is great! I know we have campus security, but I guess I have never really noticed them.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: It is a very religious school, so it is very accepting, except in some things, such as sexual orientation, which is in the student honor code.

3 College Freshman

Technology: It depends on what part of campus you are on and when. Usually it's great, though.

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.
