4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: My wife and I live off campus and we are very satisfied with the off campus housing.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: There is no real need for a car as there is plenty of housing near the campus. Their rules on parking near campus are strict and finding a spot that is free near campus is possible but difficult.

3 College Junior

Athletics: We did away with competitive sports several years ago because we focus more on studies and the Spirit of Ricks. There is a fairly good program for intramural sports, directed, coached, and participated in by students. Unfortunately not many people attend the games, maybe the players roommates but that's about it. Mostly people just play to stay active and in shape and to have fun.

Diversity: Because this is a private LDS church university, the majority of students and professors are LDS. That being said, most people are very accepting when they do meet a student who isn't of their faith. Everyone is here to learn and enjoy this time of life together. As small as the school is, it is expanding and has lots of online programs for people in other countries, specifically Africa and South America. And there are plenty of international students on campus as well.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am a sociology major and this school has a really good program for my major. The workload can be overwhelming sometimes but It helps me learn more.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Some of the buildings are old since this college has been here for a long time. But most of them have been remolded or are new and make the campus look so much better. I love the work out space especially.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off-campus housing options for males and females. I believe are really nice from what I have seen from the inside. You should do your research before committing to a housing option because some may be the same price or close in prices but can have better benefits than the other.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They have pizza, bread bowls, salad bar and etc. The main stations have a type of food they serve but they are switch it up so we don't have to eat the same thing over and over again.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: My school helps educates us to help us prepare for our careers and stay spiritually active as well.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: This school is very strict not just academically but with dress code as well.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: The Crossroads provide a nice variety of foods. There is Mexican, pizza, pasta, salad, sub sandwiches, hamburgers, and much more! The Crossroads is located in the center of campus which is perfect if you need to grab something on your way to your next class.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There are all kinds of guys and girls that attend this school because everyone comes from different places. The social life is amazing, there is always something to do on campus whether it is visiting the planetarium or going to a concert. There is never a dull moment.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There are people from all over the world and country that attend BYU-I. Most everyone is of the same religion, but not all. Those that are not of the same religion are welcomed with opened arms. Although there are not many people that are not Mormon on this campus, there is an outstanding amount of ethnic diversity.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a huge variety in off-campus apartments. They all have different price ranges and locations. One word of advice is to sign a contract with a good apartment before it becomes too full. BYU-Idaho has a link to "approved housing" so that you can look at the different apartments that are offered and what's included with every one.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Rexburg is very strange. It is cold all the time and very windy, even though it's southern Idaho. It snows early in the year and can last for a very long time (it has snowed in July before). Make sure to bring warm clothing if you choose to come to this college.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of places to eat in Rexburg, Idaho. You have your usual fast food, but there are also lots of restaurants, some of which are family owned. The food is very good, but they are sometimes kind of pricey.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: BYU-Idaho has a building for almost every major. The library is also a great place to go to get tutoring, work in study groups, and do your homework. There is also a huge gym for those who wish to work out. There is also a building that has a small grocery store if you don't have time to go to the store in Rexburg.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: There are many things to do at BYU-Idaho. They constantly have dances, movie nights, and events for people to go to. The events aren't as big as other universities, but they're still fun to go to with friends.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have never been to a school that I have enjoyed more than BYU-Idaho. The professors are the nicest people and they know what they're talking about. They're very helpful and take their job seriously. There are many subjects to study and it's easy to organize your schedule. The workload can be light or heavy, depending on what kind of classes you take and how many.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: They have a great program for finding scholarships to get your typical student through. But since there is little available work in town any extended funds needed are hard to come by.

4 College Junior

Majors: When I first started in 2007 the program was rough. But I left and came back. Now it runs amazingly.

5 College Junior

Majors: The professors teach us. Since they all have a Doctorates or comparable degrees, the lectures are fantastic and the work is where most of the learning is done. The respectful atmosphere helps to drive the learning process and greatly enhance the experience. I have had no bad classes.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's a church school, so they really want you to follow the dress code and standards of the church.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I am not to happy about the choice I made to become an art major (I will hopefully be changing my major). My career goals were to be a professional photographer but have changed to something along the lines of event planning. I definitely worry about finding a job in the photography field which is one reason of changing majors.

Majors: The process of getting into the Art program can be somewhat difficult. Everyone starts as an integrated arts major and then has to apply for specific art majors. To do this you must submit your portfolio. This will then determine if you are able to become an art major in a specific subject. You may not be able to get in if your portfolios aren't good enough. The most important criteria is a creative, personal portfolio.

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.
