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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
