5 College Senior

Drug Safety: The city of Rexburg is almost entirely made up of the LDS religious community. No one drinks or smokes and it is almost impossible to get a hold of illegal drugs. It happens among people who aren't going to school, but among students there is a very strict honor code and if anyone is caught drinking or smoking, they are kicked out. It's a very safe and healthy environment.

4 College Senior

Transportation: There is only on campus transportation for students who live quite a ways from campus, so I don't really know how that is. Long distance, there is an airport but it doesn't have many flights, so we usually have to go to Idaho Falls, about a half an hour away. There is a long distance bus but it is quite expensive. The school has an online ride board where people post where they are going and how many seats they have, and that's usually how we travel.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love this school and would probably never leave if I wasn't finishing my degree. I'm going to transfer to receive a higher degree, but I wish I could stay at BYU. The atmosphere is uplifting and everyone has the same goals. All of the teachers want you to succeed and that is felt throughout the campus as well.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus and I would never change that. Landlords offer deals for students who stay with them for multiple semesters and are kind. I live less than 2 minutes away from campus (walking distance) and about 4 minutes from the grocery store, food places, and shopping downtown. It is super safe and off the road and has plenty of parking.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love my program. The workload doesn't include a lot of busy work like other schools I've been to. There are job opportunities and internships flying at you all the time because people know how great the students at the school are. The teachers really care and want you to succeed and it shows in the grades of those who try.

5 College Senior

Majors: I'm going on an externship at the end of April and I am not worried at all about finding a place to do it. Lots of places like students from BYU Idaho and welcome them for positions.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Their are no school teams. There are intramurals and the athletic facilities are pretty nice.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything is within walkng distance really. Of course it is nice to have a car because of the cold and for dates. Rexburg's a small town so there is no local transportation that I know of. Too travel long distances most people fly home or go on a ride.

4 College Freshman

Technology: The comouters work fine. There are always avauilable computers for you to use in the library or the computer labs. Printing is very cheap. And the netwrok reliability is pretty good. A laptop is a must because a lot of the homework is done in the internet via a schools's website.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never seen any problem with with crime or anything related in school. I feel very safe in school. It is very peaceful and almost everyone is friendly.

5 College Freshman

Administration: We have to obey an honor code in BYUI. That is mostly about our conduct and how we dress and groom. We also have a curfew. We have to be in our apartments at 12 a.m. No one is checking you all the time they just expect you to obey. If your in BYUI it is problably becasue your like living the honor code.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime is very low on campus. There are emergency phones and red emergency buttons all over campus. If the red emergency button is pushed it will alert local dispatchers. Most of the students are friendly and respectful of each other. Each student must agree to abide by an honor code and be approved by religious leader to attend the school each semester.

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Rexburg is a small rural town. There's not a lot as far as cultural events or great shopping. However, the locals treat the students well and the safety of the area is well above average.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The on campus dining area is spacious and there are several different options for students to choose from. A very convenient meal card can be loaded with money and then used to purchase food.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There are always great internships being listed for engineering and computer science majors. The school sends newsletters and publicizes opportunities each week. The workload is pretty heavy, but that is to be expected for an engineering major. If you work hard and wisely budget your time you will be fine.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are always willing to help the students out. They are easily accessible by email and in their offices. The curriculum is good and the workload is heavy. Registration is pretty easy as well, as long as you register on time.

3 College Freshman

Technology: If you are doing work on campus then the network is usually reliable and dependent. The speeds are fast and getting work done is easy. I would recommend a personal computer because it is easier to have access to all the files and programs you need when you need them. If the labs are full you can still get your work done.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a lot of county folk who attend this school. Most attendees are from Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Washington, and California. The people here like to have fun and usually will find something creative to do in a small town.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Rexburg is a small town. Pretty much everyone who lives there is connected to the University somehow. Because of this, most of the food options are standard franchises.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process is pretty easy since there is an abundance of apartments and the housing costs are minimal. Most come with internet and utilities included. However, you get what you pay for (usually). Some places will have great club houses, pools, hot tubs, gyms, etc. while others will not. be careful to read everything and find some reviews before choosing a place to live.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school works hard to meet the needs of students. There are many private donors who make scholarships available to students through the school's financial aid office. Well over half the students receive aid.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: As far as typical college scene parties go there are very few. Usually the school hosts social events throughout the week.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is very low drug use at this school. It is expressly against the honor code and if there are students taking drugs then very few people know about it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The facilities are all fairly good (probably above average) and meet the needs of students and faculty. The campus is fairly old and could use some renovations in some places. However there is a great athletic building and new auditorium building.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is focused on helping students to succeed. The policies in place are agreed to voluntarily by each student when they accept admission to the school. Because of the extensive honor code here there are more people excelling in course work and fewer students getting in trouble either with the administration of the school or with the law.

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.
