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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of the biggest reasons I love this school is the environment. The feeling on the campus is great because faculty and students treat each other with respect and genuine consideration. The people are honest and trustworthy; it's easy to make friends. The classes push you but don't bury you in the workload. Finally, there is a wide variety of extracurricular activities, intramural sports, and social activities available on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: They really try to make the on campus dining a great benefit. The truth is, it's good, but totally out of my price range. How can they expect a poor college student to pay 10 bucks for a plate of spaghetti?

Scholarships: So unorganized.. That is all I have to say about that.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The majority of students are LDS so they have the same beliefs, values, and goals. When it comes to different ethnic and racial diversity, it is very diverse. There are students from all over the world.

2 College Junior

Administration: Sometimes the campus police go a little overboard. I understand that the campus has rules but if they are going to point out every little thing wrong, than it just gets a bit much. They are very strict about dress code. If a guy has not shaved in a day, they will send him home. If a girl has pants to tight, they will tell her to go change.

4 College Junior

Technology: I have never had any problems with BYUI's computers, labs, or reliability. There are plenty of labs and computers that students have access to. I think the only problem might be that they turn off their internet during devotional (every Tuesday at 2pm).

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: The college that I attend is LDS majority. Students live by the honor code which states that drinking, drugs, and other things are not tolerated. When a student is caught drinking or using drugs, he or she is dismissed from school and is not allowed back.

2 College Junior

Weather: The weather here is pretty miserable. It snows here a lot and when it's not snowing the wind is awful. Sometimes its hard to walk to class in these conditions especially when classes never cancel even if it is twenty below. In the summer, however, it is a very lovely place.

1 College Junior

Athletics: Its too bad that we do not have any sort of sport system at my school. The school does not support any sort of team or sport. Students will, however, try to get to together and play on their own.

1 College Junior

Transportation: There are not transportation options at my school. Since the town is so small, students are expected to walk.

2 College Senior

Diversity: Students are from all over the world. Most students are LDS with the same beliefs. However, there are a few of other faiths with different beliefs.

1 College Senior

Greek Life: There really aren't any sorority's or fraternity's. All students are seen and treated as equal.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is safe, clean, and cheap. However there are strict rules and things to go by that are more enforced on campus than off. However, every student agrees to follow these rules when they agree to go to the school.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There really is no night life at this school. You make your own fun. No drinking, drugs, etc.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The dining off campus is your average fast food places with only a few restaurants. The only thing open past midnight is McDonald's and a cheap Mexican restaurant.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The only public transportation available is a shuttle bus to and from Utah to Idaho. I think this is offered because many students are from there, and that is the nearest large airport.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is the way to go. Living on campus is not the way to go. Housing is just as cheap off campus and nicer.

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.
