5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: The strongest drugs to found on this campus are Ibuprofen. Drugs are not part of this campus life, there is no peer pressure to take part in drug use nor have illegal drugs been seen on this campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are few persons of Greek ethnicity attending this campus. Why? I do not know. I have met and interviewed one of the Greek students about his life and about life in Greece-which was very informative and I was honored to get the opportunity to do so. However, I don't think the Greek life has much if any influence at this campus simply because there are so few in attendance here (as far as I know there are no fraternities or sororities on this campus).

Off-Campus Dining: There really are not many places to eat off campus unless you are willing to drive at least 40 minutes to the nearest 'large' town. Not many restaurants can stay in business very long in Rexburg because during the time that students are gone, the town is pretty vacant. Also, there is not a lot of parking in town so people really do not want to take the time to drive somewhere just to have to end up walking 5 or 6 blocks to the restaurant anyways. So this provides for very limited eating varieties.

Majors: There are a lot of things provided on campus for my major. I am a graphic design major and the teachers really take the time to show and describe how to use the different resources on campus that will help us with our projects. The faculty mentors are always more than willing to help out as well. If I could do it all over again I would. I feel like I learn a lot without being thrown under the bus to fend for myself when I struggle. I do worry about finding a job sometimes because it seems like we are more sheltered being at a religious school, but it is our own perogative to have to go out and explore other areas of our field that is not taught within the school.

4 College Junior

Majors: It was nerve racking applying for my program, but it is not life or death if you do not get accepted. My application process consisted of making a graduation plan with all of my classes picked out until I graduate. I had to go over that with a councilor and get it approved. That took a bit of time since the college advising centers tend to have odd operation hours, so it takes a bit of planning to get in and see a councilor. I also had to fill out an application form and submit it with a portfolio of my work. For those who do not make it into the program, there is a general program that you can fall back into as well, so it does not affect when you will graduate, just the specificity of your degree.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: It's pretty simple to apply for the scholarships provided through the scholarship. There is just one application and you are automatically entered in for all the scholarships available based upon your application form. They keep on tightening down on the qualifications so it is getting a lot harder for me to find financial aid for my last couple of years.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have any university teams that go and compete, but there are sport clubs and small club teams that compete against each other. There are a lot of people who loves sports and so there are always more than enough teams to compete all the time with each other.

4 College Junior

Transportation: The school is within walking distance of practically all of the housing complexes so there really is not a whole lot of transportation needed. However, there are a couple apartment complexes that do provide a bus from the apartment to the school and grocery stores several times a day. Also, there is a long distance bus that goes from several surrounding towns to the campus and also some vans that travel from some of the major airports to the campus for fairly cheap. There is also an online bulletin board where people post if they need rides and others post when they are offering rides. People will contact each other and pitch in on gas so that they can travel to different places to and from school on the weekends.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: There are no drugs or alcohol used at this campus because of the rules. Everyone agrees to live by the honor code when they come here and you will get kicked out of school if you are caught drinking or doing any sort of drugs.

3 College Junior

Technology: The school has a lot of expensive programs installed on the Mac computers for Communication and Design majors, however those computers are not always accessable because a class may be in the computer lab. Also, the computers are constantly being updated so several times you cannot even log onto the computer. Also, the network is not very well protected so it will get attacked and then the students will not be able to get onto their class pages. This causes for a lot of stress and teachers having to change assignments. It also causes a potential problem for online classes not being able to function. Several times this semester I have had to submit assignments late because the network would not be working for me or would not upload my assignment. This causes me to have to email the professor explaining why the assignment was late and hope that I do not get docked points.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There's a lot of variety in where people can live: dorms, houses, apartments, anything. But no matter where you live, housing is always clean and kept in good condition.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We are much more diverse in ethnic heritage than anything else. We have students that come from all over the place, and we have a lot of different economic levels there. But it's a church school, so nearly everyone has the same religious beliefs, and so generally we have the same political affiliation, but more moderate in that than anything. However, no matter what an individuals beliefs and background may be, we treat everyone with respect.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the housing for BYUI is off campus, but the school provides easy links to follow to good housing options. Most are pretty reasonable as far as costs go, and decently close to campus. Parking can be an issue, but usually you end up being close enough to walk wherever you need to go.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I love the Honor Code we have at school! Students agree not to use drugs or alcohol as long as the attend school, and nearly everyone follows that very seriously. I'm sure there are some students that partake, but the majority do not. Everyone actively avoids situations where that might be an issue.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am very happy with the program I've chosen. The concerns I have about finding a job or a career in the future are simply because it's diffucult to find jobs in my field. The school does an amazing job in putting together a cirriculum that willl help me learn all I need to succeed.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I like my program at school. The teachers and classes are all very specific and helpful in providing the materials and tools necessary for me to learn all I need. It's not easy, but it's doable, and that helps things we learn matter more.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There isn't a Greek life at my school that I know of. If there is, it's not any different from any of the other groups around campus. Everyone treats each other with respect; no one is discriminated against, and no one recieves special treatment.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I know there is plenty of printers on campus for student and the wireless access is pretty good and accessible for students.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The nightlife is fun if you make it fun. There is a lot to do if you can get creative.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I think there is a lot of diversity on campus. Students are coming from all around the world to attend this University.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: When you walk around it is honestly so hard to see anyone who is struggling with drugs or alcohol. It is apart of the honor code to not take part in those things so I honestly believe most students don't.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: At my apartment, The Ivy, there is a shuttle that drives to and from campus all day, and is very helpful and wonderful!

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are amazing, the curriculum is solid, the registration wasn't too bad if you kept on top of it, and the workload is attainable. If you are willing to work then you will receive fair scores.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have no decided yet what my job is going to be. In terms of the classes I have taken, I loved all of them.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I think the most important criteria for admission is good grades and being honest. BYU-Idaho is set to a very high standard. If you are willing to follow that standard, it is likely that you will be accepted.

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.
