5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The school has a high standard of security and morality, and students are held accountable for their conduct. I have usually felt safe on campus and do not familiarize myself with groups who would cause any issues with that security.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: BYU is infamous for it's stance on sexual assault. It treats victims like criminals and they always try to down play when it happens. I have heard on several occasions of them sweeping it under the rug and telling the victim to keep quiet.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: We have security guards on duty in the evenings and call boxes for emergencies.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety begins with the people, and pretty much everybody on campus has a good set of values, so things are pretty generally safe and secure left alone. On top of that, there are redundancies in order to make sure people are safe and secure.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Rexburg is a quiet safe town, and although I know we have had some issues and there are probably more that I am not aware of, I feel extremely safe at my school. No one even locks their doors.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Many students feel BYU-Idaho is the safest place they’ve ever been. It’s not uncommon for students to talk to one another and feel comfortable hanging out after one meeting. They’re willing to trust one another because students have signed the Honor Code that makes them promise to upkeep the laws in Rexburg and the rules on campus. Because of the Honor Code and student standards, many BYU-Idaho students feel very safe on campus because the students are committed to being kind and respectful. They do not steal, cheat, or participate in violence, but the town is not always perfectly safe. Students are still strongly encouraged to lock their doors and look both ways before crossing the street.

The Rexburg community is also reasonably safe because it’s a family-oriented community, and the majority of residents are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, who strive for integrity and honesty in everything in all their daily activities. Students are still taught safety by common sense, and many new pedestrian lights were installed recently for safer streets for those walking. Many emergency phones are installed throughout the campus, in case of an emergency, and campus police are always in the area patrolling for any suspicious activity.
