5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's close to campus, many great options, reasonably priced and very safe!

1 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No drugs, or at least I don't know of any. Besides being against the law, it's also against the school 'Honor Code' because of the LDS Word of Wisdom prohibiting things that are allegedly harmful to your body such as alcohol, tea, coffee, tobacco and drugs.

1 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It's a mormon school so there are no parties with alcohol, no clubs or bars.
People are very social, and there's always get-togethers of some sort. In some apartment complexes people will often dances or dance parties in their lounges. (where everyone is at least two inches from the next person)

5 College Junior

Majors: There are tons of majors and lots of help to get you through it. Good school for how much it costs.

Campus Housing: Not amazing. Most of it is run by students or previous students. Still good for what you get depending on where you go.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is a great variety of different housing places up here, and they are all generally close! They are all usually available, but the popular places go fast! Most landlords are usually great, and the cost is good compared to other colleges. Parking where I live is free and no one gets a boot, but other places don't have as much parking so it costs and visitors can't park there. They are all really safe and the school website has a great search tool for BYUI approved housing!

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Rexburg is a lot of fun! Especially in the spring/summer! There are plenty of places to go see movies, go out to dinner and a few different grocery stores. There aren't too many places to go shopping for clothes and such, you have to drive about a half an hour to Idaho falls for stuff like that! There are drive in movies, the sand dunes, bridge jumping, several parks, yellowstone, bear world, lots of places to get ice cream, and so much more! Rexburg is awesome!!

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am in the process of trying to receive financial aid, and it wasn't very hard to apply. You only have to apply once for scholarships and it applies you for all of them, so that is really nice!

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Overall, it's a pretty safe environment. Everything is decently close so it's convenient. However, coming from DC to Rexburg, it's a very boring place. There's a lot of outdoor things to do, if you have time between classes. But aside from that it feels like it's in the middle in nowhere.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: I'm only aware of one housing complex that provides transportation. "The Ivy" has a shuttle bus that periodically takes students to campus and the grocery store. However, it's only for residents. Every other housing has to find their own way around.

1 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking passes don't cost much, but there are two big issues you run into. One, spots fill up fast! You can be caught driving around for almost ten minutes trying to find a spot, only to have to park pretty far from your classes. Your best bet is getting to campus about 30 min before class starts. The second problem you run into is that the parking is split into sections. You may get a parking pass in a section near the majority of your classes, but you'll always have one or two classes that are in a completely different section. You'll find yourself wishing you had a pass for that section, too. But you are only allowed to buy a pass for one section. I think the best solution would be to have one parking pass that covers all of campus. It would solve a lot of problems.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was not satisfied at all! They force people to go to church and religious classes, and think that it's okay. If you do one thing wrong, out the door you go. College is supposed to be a fun atmosphere, and this was so very disappointing. Too stiff and uptight.

Transportation: We do not have campus transportation, but it doesn't really matter. Most apartments are only a few blocks away. However if you do decide to drive to campus (which a lot of married students have to) be careful. Parking is few and far between. I would suggest getting a city permit and a campus permit. But good news is that they are pretty cheap, about 20-30 dollars. We do not have public transportation either, but again it is a small enough town you really don't need it. Long-distance traveling you have a two options, Salt Lake Express or Sam's shuttle. They mainly drive from Rexburg to Salt Lake, but there are a few stops in between.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We do not have varsity sports, rather we have intramural. It is due to the large cost of professional teams, but it works for our campus. Because intramurals are our only sports, it allows more students to get active and be on a team!

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The main cafeteria is a great place to hang out and meet people. There is a large variety in food, but it can get pricey. There are other smaller food stands spread out around campus which is nice, as it gives options.

2 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Parking is extremely difficult on campus, but the majority of housing is within easy walking distance, so generally a car is not necessary. The ticketing and fines is very annoying. They are extremely picky.

Campus Food: Campus dining is conveniently central to campus, though a little expensive. There are some good deals, but the pizza is usually the best option, since it is fairly cheap. However, if money is no object, the food is pretty great. Sometimes the Asian lo mein dry out, so try to get them before that happens.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of different options, mexican, asian, fast food, sandwiches, hawaiian. The costs are average. Some places are not very close but everything is just about in walking distance. There are good student discounts. Costa Vida is really good, but it is not very close. Some of the asian and sadwich places are good too. And there are a lot of ice cream and snow cone places.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are tons of different people here from all walks of life. The school is predominantly white/european heritage. There are a large number of hispanic students, some asian and african american. There are a good number of foreign students from asia, africa, canada, mexico. The boys are friendly, there are many from big cities, mostly from suburbs, some from rural areas and some farm boys. The girls are also pretty nice, again mostly from suburbs, some from cities. The boys are pretty good looking and clean cut.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The classes here are pretty small and it is really nice to have teachers that know you. The professors are really caring and reasonable; they appreciate that you are a human being and make mistakes.

3 College Junior

Weather: The winter is freezing cold and gets sometimes 20 below 0 although that is not all the time. Definitely have to wear warm clothes and scarves. The sping is nice, a little chilly. The summer is great. It's a dry heat, it rains sometimes and gets hot but not too bad. It's also pretty windy. The fall and spring semesters are really good. The winter can be a bit tolling. If you have seasonal depression I would recommend attending only during the spring and fall semesters.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: There are tons of things to do here if you are bored you just have to get out there. There are sports clubs and dance, writing and film and theater. The dances are fun. There are great plays and shows here. The landscaping is beautifula dn the gardens are really pretty. There are 2 movie theaters and lots of restraurants and there are fun outdoor activities. Plenty of opportunities to get involved too!

4 College Junior

Technology: There are computers in the library on every floor so and every time that I have gone there has been one open. The interent is pretty fast and the networks are very reliable. There are places to print in the library and printins is only 4 cents per sheet. There is a printing place that does lots of cool stuff and you can print up projects on different paper, special ink etc. The art students have priting places in their buildings and the there are computer labs in most of the buildings. There are mac labs on two floors of the library and in some of the other buildings. It's much easier to have your own computer so you don't have to go to the library but if you are on campus without your laptop or your laptop breaks you can use the school ones.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: A lot of people have cars, but it really isn't necessary. Everything is in walking distance, and very accessible. But if you need to go out of town and don't have a car, the university has a cool thing on the website that allows you to find people that are traveling out of town everyday and are offering cheap rides.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Rexburg is often very windy, which can be good or bad. Because in the winter Rexburg is often below zero the wind can be harsh, and it's hard to make it to class sometimes. But the spring and fall it is great, it's never really too hot or cold.

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.
