5 College Junior

Local Area: I am a local so I love this town. There is so much to do close by.

College Junior

Campus Food: I never eat on campus. I either eat at home or in town.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: BYU-I is amazing! Tuition is a steal and you get to have the church environment. Plus it's close to home for me.

5 College Junior

Guys & Girls: So many people have the same values as you it's great! Too often they just want to "hang out" though.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Housing is great! A little far from campus and the new housing is spendy, but other than that I love it!

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking fills up quick and you can't always find a spot in the correct zone.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I live in what is probably the farthest from campus housing available. This is not fun....but I put up with it and walk. Most of the other housing is realistically close and I haven't seen an apartment that I found to be too shabby!

Campus Food: I've eaten several times on campus and it is highly mediocre food. To me, it's not worth the money to continue to eat there every day, so I bring my own lunch. The vending machine snacks are sometimes cheap and are conveniently placed where I need them.

Health & Safety: I have never even thought about not feeling safe on campus, nor have I ever seen a police officer. We have a very safe environment, and sometimes I even leave my stuff sitting out while I go to the bathroom. Too trusting?? Maybe so...

Drug Safety: The drug scene is literally the WORST! If you want to meet people to do that kind of stuff with, I would suggest trying a different college. However, I'm sure there are some people somewhere who drink and do drugs....but you never hear about them or see them.

Technology: I don't ever need to use the campus computers, but most of the time I am able to connect on my Macbook Pro. There are some buildings where the connection is poor (the common areas), but maybe that's because there are so many students using it. Other than that, I have zero complaints.

3 College Junior

Diversity: This is not a very diverse place, since we are technically a private school and we are Church-owned. However, this does not mean that we don't have our differences and that we don't accept others'. As far as accepting people who ARE different, I think we do an excellent job. That is the mindset of God, and it should be the mindset of His students.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's probably the strictest environment I have ever lived in, but I believe that type of environment is necessary for serious students. If I wasn't at this school, I would personally maintain the same standards.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There isn't much to do around here except play in nature. That's great if you're in to that type of thing, but I'm not. I usually keep busy enough with school and work to not think about it, though.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school because the class sizes are small, which allows for a more personal and tailored experience. Also, I believe that beginning every class with a prayer like we do here is one of the keys of my personal success.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial aid through the government is easy to get, but so far I have been unsuccessful in receiving any from the school. I am not totally positive why, but I meet the requirements and turn in the applications on time. Maybe a high demand?

3 College Junior

Transportation: As far as I know, there is no public transportation outside of carpools. Like I said, I leave my car at home unless I'm going somewhere far away from campus.

College Junior

Parking: I own a car but do not drive to class. I walk because it helps me clear my head to deal with stress.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have never had an official internship, but I will most definitely seek one out in my field (audio engineering) because I believe it will be beneficial to learn from those who have much more experience. I know quite a few people in the business, so finding something shouldn't bee too hard. I have been an apprentice of sorts at a recording studio in my home town.

College Junior

Greek Life: I have never heard of this Greek life, but it sounds like the most wonderful of all organizations!

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The overall culture is to be yourself, people dress everyday to look their best and to prepare for their future careers.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Located in a city of 20,000 there is little need for public transportation. Walking, or borrowing someoneĀ“s car can get you anywhere.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Diversity is widely accepted. Being a school owned by a church it does however tend to be more homogeneous as far as religion and sexual orientation goes.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a number of places, but they are located about a mile away from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: There is not transportation at BYU-Idaho! The town is so small and campus is close that you don't need any transportation unless you are wanting to make trips out of town. Everything is in walking distance.

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.
