5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not been to school anywhere else except BYU-Idaho but it has been such a good experience. All the classes are great and the whole school works well with all their students.

Parking: The convenience of parking spaces is excellent. All parking lots are in convenient places and close to the buildings. The only thing about them is that they fill up quickly and there aren't enough for those that come on campus later.

Academics: its tons of fun, lots of opportunities

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: not too many options, but enough

Off-Campus Housing: Most housing is just off campus

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The school provides a car to rent.

4 College Junior

Local Area: Some people complain about how small Rexburg is and there's nothing in town to do, but they are either too picky or just don't know what's out there. The city tries to cater to its large student population and many businesses wouldn't be here if it weren't for the university. If you like walking around a mall like teenagers, you can go to Idaho Falls, about 40 minutes away, but there's plenty to do here, even if you have to get creative sometimes.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The campus security is good and they take safety seriously, but this is a relatively safe campus anyway, so it never feels dangerous or unsafe. All campus paths are well lit, even in the Ricks Gardens, and there are blue emergency phones throughout campus if you ever feel unsafe or nervous or someone is causing trouble.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of fast food places throughout town, not very many close to campus though. There are several sit down restaurants too, Chinese, Mexican, American cuisine, etc. Most places in town usually have some sort of student discount with your student id, so always ask.

4 College Junior

Majors: The business program is probably one of the most common majors people have on campus and it's a great program. You don't have to apply to be a business major, but it does require a good range of classes throughout your 4 years, including, accounting, economics, business, and then your emphasis courses your last year or so. Just work really hard and take it seriously because they'll make it as real as possible to business life.

5 College Junior

Weather: I personally can't wait until it snows and gets really cold! I've been to Russia and I loved the cold and -40 degree weather because I could wear really big puffy coats and hats. Other people dread the first snowfall, so it's just your personal preference I guess. Of course in the spring, everyone can't wait for it to finally warm up again, and as soon as it does, even if it's just in the 50s, everyone in outside in the sun as much as they can because compared to below freezing temperatures, 53 degrees is a tropical paradise!

4 College Junior

Technology: First of all, you can get free upgrades to Windows and Microsoft Office through the school as long as you're a student! That's awesome and really helps since software is so expensive. Wifi is available all over campus, even outside in most places because people tend to do homework outside as soon as it gets warm again. It rarely has problems on campus, and if it does, they let you know what's going on and take care of it as soon as possible. Wifi reliability around town at most off-campus housing is another matter...usually not that great.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The Crossroads is the main food court on campus, which has all kinds of options from pizza, salad, sandwiches, to Chinese, barbecue, Mexican. There are pretty long lines during lunch hours so you'll have to wait like everyone else, but it's pretty tasty. Maybe a little on the expensive side, so I don't go there often. There are also cafes throughout campus that offer varieties of sandwiches, soups, snacks, etc. And vending machines throughout campus if you just want a snack between classes.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There is a 2:1 ratio of girls to guys on campus. Everyone typically dresses appropriately, according to the school's dress code standards.

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.

4 College Junior

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!

5 College Junior

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.

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.
