Off-Campus Housing: There are so many places to stay. The landlords are very kind and try to make it the best experience for everyone.

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing choices are very close to campus. Although it is technically off campus, it is right across the street which makes it time efficient. For the quality of each apartment, it is very cost effective. Living there is so convenient because of these things. There are parking lots by each apartment and there are always enough spots for everyone to have their own. The Landlords really try and make everyone feel welcome and safe which I know is very rare. Living off-campus is a great experience.

Off-Campus Dining: Since BYU-I is in the very small town of Rexburg, there are not a lot of resteraunts to choose from in the area. There are a good amount of fastfood places, and other unhealthy choices. As a healthy person, it is hard for me to find a good option when it comes to resteraunt dinners. I do manage to find something despite that all.

Administration: Everyone who attends this school is upholded by the Honor Code. The honor code is a set of basic guidelines that every individual is asked to follow in order to keep them and those around them on the right path towards good and praiseworthy things. Having these guidelines has been a great way to keep me personally in check with my own person goals. It has made me a better person and has kept me from doing things that I shouldn't be doing. I am very blessed to be at a 'more strict' college than most students.

Scholarships: There are many different ways to recieve financial aid at Brigham Young University-Idaho. It is something that an individual needs to seek out, so do not think it is just going to appear in front of you one day. I was very on top of it and turned in my financial aid application early which I do believe was why I got the amount of money I did. Although I did not recieve a full scholarship, I was able to recieve enough so that my bank account was not in the negatives and I did not have to take out any loans.

Party Scene: Even in an LDS school, there are still certain parties that you know will have alcohol. I stray away from those parties and I know it has made me a better person in the end. It has made my college experience more enjoybale and stress free knowing that I am not associated with people who choose to party in a way that is against what I believe. I have seen other individuals effected by those bad parties and it has made me stay away even more.

Campus Food: I know that there are colleges that are much worse when it comes to their cafeteria's. With that being said, I wish that there were a larger variety of options in the crossroads. Everyday there are the same expensive foods and they are of no interest to me. Oftentimes I have to eat inbetween classes and walking all the way to my dorm will mean that I do not have time to sit and eat. I often choose to pack my lunch and bring it to the crossroads instead of partaking of the food their due to the price and quality.

Campus Housing: Living on campus provides easy access everything one may need on campus. It is close to the library for quick and quiet places to study. I also think that you are able to meet more people while living on campus because you are constantly in situations around other people.

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off-campus because it makes you feel more mature and you get to do more things that on-campus students couldln't do. I have been living off-campus this past couple years and they are great. Landlords or managers also have influence on students and so it really depends on the relationship you make with your managers.

Off-Campus Dining: I like the off-campus dining options at my Rexburg, even though we don't have that much rexburg, we have enough just to help us mix it with the on campus dining options. I would much rather eat off-campus than I would on-campus because they are better

Administration: I love my school because it has rules that if followed will bring one safety and blessings. I am not a big fan of the curfew but I love the rules that make me responsible for my action.

Scholarships: I think the financial aid office are doing their best to work with students and meets everyone's needs but sometimes they just have so much to deal with, especially at the beginning of the semester.

Party Scene: I have attended multiple parties in the past and they have been fun. It just depends on the theme of the party and the cost of it. College students love to have fun and so having them together, especially during the weekend is always fun. Students are greatly influenced when they are having fun with their friends.

Campus Food: I personally am not a fan of the dining on campus because they are very expensive. I would much rather eat at home or something. They also need to change the food they have because it gets old and boring.

Campus Housing: I lived on campus the first two semesters of my college year. It was not bad but it was not that good either. I had a hard time socializing and all, but ti's a good place to stay for new students.

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not sure what off-campus housing is like because I've never lived there. But I do know that it's farther away, so if you want to live there, you need a car to travel. The parking is a lot better because there are less people there. I think the cost is more, but the quality is a lot better. From what I've heard, the landlords and managers are easy to get along with and are very nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There could be more options, instead of 4 Subways and 2 McDonalds. But there are places here that I've never heard of or been to. There's a nice variety of local shops and chain restaurants. I do like the intimacy of a small, unique restaurant. But I also like convenience of knowing exactly what I want off of the menu and the speed of the fast food restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I've found that the administration knows it's going on, but they can't really pin point a specific group, or apartment because too many people do it. You can get away with pretty much anything in the dorms and apartments, so it's difficult to catch students. They also don't really have security, so students tend to push the limits. If there's no one here to enforce it, you won't really get caught. I've broken curfew multiple times, but no one's out to enforce it, so I'm not worried about getting caught.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I think the GPA requirement to keep your scholarships is a little high, considering you're expected to maintain almost a 4.0, even during your first semester. I was not ready for all of the work and I was still getting used to being on my own. If the GPA requirement was lower, I would be happier. It's also very easy to get financial aid dishonestly. I had a roommate last semester who lied about her home and living situation, and she got financial aid 3 weeks later. There are people out there who actually need help, but are too humble to ask for it. So the people who lie and spend the money recklessly take it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Since it is an LDS school, there's not a lot of raging parties. I haven't seen a party where there's drugs or alcohol, but I do know that people will do those things before and after the actual party. I like the fact that there aren't "bad" or "inappropriate" parties, because we all did sign a contract saying we would obey the rules and commandments. But a lot of the parties are lame. The dj's aren't good, and not a lot of people come.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's a little pricey, but very convenient. I always go to the MC Market when I don't want to walk to Broulim's and they almost always have what I need. I also haven't had Krispy Kreme in forever, so that always makes my day. I've never eaten in the Crossroads, but from what I hear, it's really good.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost is very affordable compared to other universities. It's always very clean, people are very friendly and considerate. There are no late night parties that disrupt the atmosphere. There is approved housing surrounding the entire campus, so the travel time isn't bad. Some of the housing managers are rude, but most of them are easy to get along with.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Availabilty isn't too bad cost varies from place to place. Private rooms cost more.Very close to campus.

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.
