3 College Freshman

Weather: We get a lot of snow in the winter and it gets cold. It's Idaho, what do you expect?

5 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a college town with very supportive residents. Everyone in the community is very involved in the school with trying to help students and make life easy and fun.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There really aren't people here to steal stuff or harass you. We come here to be around others who have the same morals and values. Of course there are the exceptions who are just the church school because mommy and daddy made them, but the rest of us are respectful of ourselves and each other. It is one of the safest schools to be at. People are very trustworthy.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are no drugs or alcohol allowed. We sign an agreement to the Honor Code before we even get accepted that we will not participate in such "social activities".

5 College Freshman

Majors: My program is the best! The ecology department is great. The professor who wrote the integrated major made it very broad so that you could still specialize in something else if you decide to change your emphasis. He is also very helpful of students, especially transfers because he helps you get more classes you've taken in the past substituted for other classes.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a lot of campus housing available to students. It's not typically hard to find a place to live. It is a bit crowded with it being 6 people to an apartment but that's really the only downside.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We actually don't have varsity sports where we play against other schools. But the students are very involved in intramural sports and it's very supported by the school and students.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options of places to go for a quick bite or first date. Not many places, if any, provide student discounts. The Hickory is one of our favorites. We often go for their smoked brisket sandwich and fresh squeezed strawberry lemonade.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The atmosphere that the students and staff create is why BYUI is an amazing school. I would never choose to attend anywhere else. It is amazing to know that all of the students who I am surrounded with share my religion and therefore my standards. I am able to connect with them easier than I ever did at the community college I attended for my dual credit program in High School.

2 College Junior

Athletics: I don't know of many sporting activities, although I do know that they happen regularly. They aren't heavily advertised. There is a large football field for field sports and a huge gym for basketball, track etc.

2 College Junior

Transportation: There is a community board online to help students who have cars provide transportation for those who don't. Often students will provide their services for low rates. However, because Rexburg is so accessible, there is hardly a need for transportation unless it is long-distance.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: In a casual conversation with a classmate, the topic of housing comes up quite frequently. I would estimate that 75%+ of the students live off-campus. There are options to live on campus, however it is rare to find someone who passionately desires to live on campus. There are so many options off-campus that are within walking distance of the school and shopping centers. Most off-campus housing is frequently remodeled to fit the styles of up and coming freshman. Landlords are often students as well and can be found to be great listeners with advice to give-- like a friend or away-from-home sibling/parent.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: In many of the buildings on campus, there is an area to grab a bite to eat. Some of their items come from the bakery, some items are made right in front of you, and others are snacks to go. The main cafeteria has a wide variety of full meal options and the quality is sublime. The dining hall is huge and often has a live band performing. No item is more expensive than Walmart but it is, however, much better quality.

3 College Junior

Diversity: In order to attend BYUI, you must be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS or Mormon). If you are not a member, it is very hard to be admitted. I believe that somewhere between .1 and .5% of the student population is not LDS. Being LDS also means being heterosexual. There are some who are homosexual; however, it is against school policy to act on it. Nevertheless, everyone is accepted as apart of the student community-- non-LDS, lesbian/gay, from a different cultural background etc.

3 College Junior

Local Area: When you are in Rexburg, Idaho, you feel safe. No matter what part of the city you are in, there is no need to worry about being in danger. That could be because at BYUI there is a 10pm curfew for Students.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: Brigham Young University in Idaho is very responsible. The city does not have bars that I know of, or if there are a few, BYUI students are prohibited to enter them.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I would say everyone on campus is attractive in some way. There is a little bit of all kinds of people on campus. I once dated a guy that wasn't enormously physically attractive, but he was in many comedy groups on campus and had a great sense of humor and fun. We had a great time together while getting to know each other better and I loved him for that. You can always find somebody to date.

5 College Senior

Academics: I'm pretty sure I already answered this, but I love my major. The program and teachers are awesome, the workload is manageable but still challenging, we have tons of options for externships and a lot of places hire right out of your externship.

5 College Senior

Academics: Love the teachers, students are respectful and everyone helps each other out. Registration is easy and cheap, the curriculum is almost always manageable and fair. Group studying is encouraged, and sometimes forced which is good for people like me who don't really know how to get a group together to study.

5 College Senior

Majors: I love my program. I've learned so much and if I had to choose again, I would do it over every time. I'm going to use the Medical Assisting to lead into a career in Nursing with other things in the future. I have no concerns about getting into Nursing school or getting a job in either field.

5 College Senior

Majors: I got into my program on the first try. Their standards are very reasonable and if you deserve to be accepted, you are. I was very please with the ease of the application and how awesome the teachers are.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There isn't much political or sexual diversity since it is an LDS school and almost everyone has the same views. There are a lot of international students, however. I've met people from Japan, Hong Kong, Micronesia, Canada, and many other places. It's so much fun to get to know people from other countries, but at the same time it is also nice that we all have the same values and beliefs.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The whole city is kind of an off campus scene because you can get anywhere by walking. There are a few Chinese places and a Mexican restaurant, but everything else is like Taco Bell and McDonald's. The "fanciest" place there is to eat is Applebee's, but nobody minds too much because we can't afford much more than that anyway.

4 College Senior

Parking: There is limited parking, but you can get a university permit from the city for free, so it's a first come first served thing. The best thing is that most people live close enough to campus so that they don't have to drive. I've never taken a car to school and can walk everywhere I need to go just fine.

4 College Senior

Athletics: There are only club and intramural sports on campus. There are no varsity sports teams. This makes it more fun to play because everyone is playing for fun, not for competition. It's a great way to meet people and have a good time. I miss going to high school games and the school spirit sometimes, but this way more people can play and not feel bad if they aren't pros.

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.
