4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: All student housing, on or off campus is approved and have strict standards to live up to.

3 College Senior

Athletics: There is no competition between this college and other colleges. There are a lot of opportunities to play sports but only against other BYU-Idaho students.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The policy at Brigham Young University is very simple. When students agree to come here, we have to sign an honor code stating we will not partake of things that are harmful to our bodies. Meaning drugs, alcohol and other harmful substances. If we get caught doing these things or we are reported doing them we will get expelled from school.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have honestly never heard of a crime that has happened on campus. The craziest thing that i have heard happening is a fight breaking loose during an intramural sports event.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: There isnt a whole ton to do right in the city by the school but there are lots of places that you are able to go to that arent very far from it. you can do lots of outdoor activities like go to parks, fishing in the river, camping, hiking, you can visit yellowstone national park which isnt very far from it. There is definitely things that you are able to do and stay busy.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Almost in every area this campus is diverse except in the sexual orientation area, as well as religion. At this campus you dont see very many homosexual people, and when i say very many I mean there might be a handful. This is a church school and so you dont see very many people from other religions but they are accepted if they do come and are included just like the rest.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The campus has a very strict honor code which they abide by to a T. The rules that are in place they enforce, to the point that if you are not following it they wont let you attend class. There are rules against beards and if you have one they will send you home to shave, they also have rules against things like drinking and other drugs and they will kick you out of school if you participate in those things.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The local weather is probably the worst thing about the school and that is because it is usually cold and winter is very long.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The thing that is probably my favorite is that i am not judged for the things that i believe and that i am surrounded with people that have the same standards as me. I attended Utah State for a year and really liked it there except for all of the issues that the frat parties and what not brought with it, here at BYUI that isnt a problem.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: There are a lot of strict polices at BYU-I but they are not interested in controlling individuals. They are interested in controlling the positive and spiritual that the school strives for. So those who like to drink, look at porn, or have extra-marital sexual relations this school is not for you. Out side of actives that have been deemed damaging to this atmosphere students are free to do as they please.

Academics: The work load so far is not too bad. I am able to be a full time student and work two jobs while maintaing As and Bs. The curriculum is very focused because the school does not allow you to take more than a certain number of credits.

Academics: The registration process is frustrating. It is hard to compete for "freshman classes" and you may have to take classes outside of what you need the first semester.

Guys & Girls: The people are conservative in appearance and nature. The girls always wear clothing that is modest, meaning not much skin showing, but are very attractive. The Norm is to be friendly and helpful with everyone. Generally the interests are related to; the outdoors, church, and laser tag.

Scholarships: I pay for my schooling in cash. I have no experience with it. BYU-I is relatively inexpensive for the facilities and education received, even if the financial aid is not available to an individual this University is worth paying its full cost. Thats what I am doing.

Technology: There are lots of student computers on campus. The windows computers are old but reliable, there are new Macs' which are very good. There are printing stations where you can send assignments wirelessly to print. If you decide not to buy a computer you will need at least a jump drive to save and store your assignments on.

Campus Quality: The campus has building called the Manwaring Center which has a large cafeteria, plenty of seating, and often free candy. In the same building there are many study and practice rooms that have capabilities to video conference. Close to the study rooms there is a recreation area of sorts with a bowling ally, pool tables, smoothie store, and university store and gift shop. Frequently there are free comedy and musical performances in the evening here. Attached by skywalk is the David O. McKay library which has group study rooms and cozy nooks to be with friends in. Just south of these is the gardens, which have large open spaces of grass with many mature trees and structures to sit or enjoy the scenery. In addition to all this there are many sports fields, a C.O.P.E Course, and competitive inter-school tournaments. There are excellent opportunities to interact and meet many new people.

Campus Quality: BYU-I boast very good facilities. The new I-center on campus can seat at least 15,000. The I-center has three levels with a free hanging balcony modeled after the Conference center in Salt Lake City Utah, which is the largest free hanging balcony in the world. There are frequent opportunities to see very good performers at a very low cost. I was able to see Chis Allen a winner of american Idol and A group called the piano guys for only 8 dollars a piece. There is a weekly devotional where distinguished visitors address the student body in a motivating and inspiring way. I attended when the apostle Todd D. Christopherson spoke at BYU-I.

Diversity: There are lots of people that are of African, Latin and Islander descent. The school is owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which sponsors international students of the church through the continuing education fund. In addition to this the school actively seeks to bring students of an international origin to the school as well as provide opportunities to study abroad. But its still mostly white mormons from the local area.

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.
