5 College Junior

Campus Quality: The campus is very well kept and provides many resources for students.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: I love the campus, frankly. There are plenty of places to study (because I swear a large portion of the kids don't study) and the whole campus is pretty. The technology in terms of research having high tech equipment in labs (I'm an electrical engineer) kinda sucks frankly. There is almost no research (though I believe there is a small pre-med group doing some research, but usually no research). I find myself at ease being on Campus. Everyone is sweet. There is food (which isn't great but it's not bad either!)

Campus Quality: BYUI has a tone of student sports and recreation activities and a good gym and health center. The school invests a lot of money into these activities so they are high quality and in-expensive or free for students.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: Our school widely focuses on academic performance and leaves the sports to BYU-Provo. However, we have an excellent gym facility and encourage their students to attend by offering free memberships.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: Everyone on campus is very friendly. There are always places to go to hang out with friends or to meet for study groups. There are many places if you want to study outside that you can. There are always activities going on such as dances, concerts, and plays. I recommend this school to anyone who wants small class sizes and one on one help from teachers along with free tutoring.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many of the buildings are fairly new, while the rest have mostly been remodeled recently. The buildings are well kept, and vandalism never happens or is extremely rare. Each building has many desks in great condition, and food facilities are easily accessible. Almost all of the classrooms have a projector with a computer hooked up for the professor to present a wide range of material to the students.

The grounds are always kept fresh with flowers all summer long, and the walkways are kept safe from ice and snow during the winter. The University has a beautiful garden where many go to relax, walk, take portraits, and even get engaged. A large beautiful temple can be seen from almost anywhere on campus, and at night, the temple is lit up for a magnificent wonder that can be seen from 15 miles any direction. The cafeteria has been remodeled with all new equipment, and a student will always have a place to sit and relax. The library has computer labs and always has the resources necessary for a student to research and study. The University has many outside contracts with magazines, research sites, and many other useful memberships for students to enjoy while enrolled.

"Green" Initiatives
Recently, students have created an initiative to implement more recycling on campus. The school has also taken a big stand against creating more parking places and instead has asked students to walk when they can instead of driving. The school is also constructing a new auditorium and adding to the Manwaring Center to increase usability and efficiency to the old building.
School Slang
  • DTR: "Define the relationship." This is the name for the talk couples have when they're transitioning from just dating to something a little more serious.
  • FHE: Family Home Evening. Every Monday night, your ward family home evening group will get together to have a spiritual lesson and activity.
  • IF: Idaho Falls
Traditions
  • Devotional: Every Tuesday, the University invites a speaker to talk to the student body on a spiritual topic. Students gather for devotional and show they're prepared for the speaker by raising their scriptures.
  • Midnight 5K Run: Every semester, students run a 5K at midnight to support a given cause.
  • Pond Skimming: Students get together in the winter and slide across the ice and snow on the Upper Fields.
Urban Legends
  • "Ring by spring or your money back." Some people get married their first semester, but it's not like that for a lot of people. And you won't get your money back.
  • BYU-I really stands for BYU-"I do."
  • It's more of a fun fact than it is a legend: the most frequently stolen book from the library is The Miracle of Forgiveness by President Spencer W. Kimball. Who'da thunk!
  • Legend says that the Tuscany Place apartment complex was once home to a prostitution ring. But I'm not entirely sure that it's just a legend!
Favorite Things To Do
Go to student performances. Visit the BYU-I Gardens. Meet friends in the Crossroads. Work out at the Hart. Go sledding in the winter or play games in the summer on the Upper fields.

BYU-Idaho has more than 60 active societies and a very strong student-led activities program with six areas (outdoor, service, talent, fitness, sports, and social).
