Party Scene: I have heard some pretty frightening stories about negative experiences students have had. I've never attended any of the parties other apartment complexes put together, and I don't plan to. You never know when they'll be bad. Then again, I know it would be much worse at other universities.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't know much about these topics.

Guys & Girls: LGBT dating is non-applicable for this campus. Most everyone on this campus is trying to be their own kind of "fashionably unique" that they all blend together in a sea of sameness. Most guys are work out, truck, and gaming junkies. The ladies are pretty much the same, but in the female respect.

Health & Safety: Campus security rarely-if ever-has to deal with big issues such as sexual assault, so they go all Rambo on parking violations and j-walking. There have been some reports of campus crime-although it is more like apartment crime. Some apartments have had things stolen BECAUSE STUDENTS DON'T/WON'T LOCK THEIR DOORS! It is a small town and an LDS college, so students lull themselves into a false sense of security and their stuff gets stolen. On campus, I feel totally safe. Every path is a main passage to a building and always being used any-reasonable-time of the day.

Off-Campus Housing: BYU-I has two "Off Campus" housing options, approved and non-approved of campus housing. Non-approved housing requires the payment of a non-compliance fee (I don't know the cost) and the cost of the apartment is up to the landlord-as well as how many persons will occupy a room; shared, private, or three or more persons in one "large" room-I have never lived in apartment like these so I don't have any further information about it. The university website has a housing page with many sorting options, but it hasn't been updates in quite some time, so don't settle for "taking the word" of the webpage. go to the private webpages or call the offices (most offices are open between 10-5 and closed for lunch break at 12).

Local Area: the town is quiet and small (it takes 15 minutes to drive from one side of the town to the other). Everything revolves around the college. The college is the main attraction and anything that occurs there.

Majors: I don't need an internship for my major, there are other options which I have planned for. However, my roommate has to have an internship, though she has to find internship opportunities on her own then have it approved by a particular professor. This is not always the case, however, it really depends on what your are of study is.

Party Scene: I don't really know of any parties going on outside of "campus sponsored events". Usually the most interesting events, on campus, are closely followed an attendance fee ranging anywhere from $2-$15. I don't usually attend these events, so I cannot say if the price is worth the event.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love the professors at this campus! Well, most of them. I'm graduating in a few semesters and have accumulated my list of "go-to" professors that I know will work well with me or that I know their work load is something I can handle. There are other professors that I have placed on my "I'd rather not" list, but just because I don't like those professors doesn't other students don't. One professor, in particular, I refused to ever take another class from, but a friend of mine loved his classes and takes as many as possible.

Campus Housing: Really it depends on where you live. The dorms are right on campus and the closest to classes off campus housing varies as to location and convenience in getting to classes. The married housing is the furthest away, so couples can "practice being in the 'real world'". Also, the option to live off campus in non-campus housing is available, but the student has to pay a non-compliance fee for not living in "approved housing". Some apartment complexes are overpriced for the quality of the place, but the student is then usually paying for location (closer to campus).

Majors: I really like the program of international studies here at BYU-Idaho.

Greek Life: There are no fraternities allowed at any BYU schools

Academics: This school has a big acceptance rate but most of the professors are phenomenal. The insights and teachings they give are not only from text book but primarily from their experiences. I greatly appreciate them.

Athletics: At BYU Idaho there is no collegiate teams. Intramural soccer are the only things that go on here. The competition is the most intense for ultimate frisbee.

Academics: I am a Biology major with an emphasis in Human Bio, hoping that I will some day make it into Medical school. The Biology department, I have to say, is the best. The professors and counselors are there for you every step of the way, and they want to help in any way. The workload can be pretty rough, but it's completely worth it in the long run, as I hope any with the intent of a medical degree understand. There are plenty of groups on campus that gather to help each other get through the classes and the application processes. The Biology department has several internships around the country including Chico State in CA, that you have to apply for.

Party Scene: Since we are a pretty conservative school, we don't have many raging parties that are talked about for weeks. You can generally find a party in the bigger apartment complexes most weekends. FHE groups and church wards have parties all the time and they are pretty fun to attend. When attending the parties, you meet alot of people and that is how most relationships between friends are begun.

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very efficient in getting you all the financial you need. However, it is a personal responsibility to make sure that you sign up for whatever financial aid you need. The school has some links that you can go through to sign up for other scholarships and when you are entering your personal financial situation, the school will ask if you want to sign up for academic scholarships through the school.

Health & Safety: The campus of BYU-Idaho is fantastic. I have had siblings attend the school for years, and have almost never heard of any crime on campus. There are always people around, and you feel very secure. Security on campus if pretty good and everyone is always looking out for each other.

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.
