4 College Senior

Party Scene: The party scene is practical for an LDS school. There are no drugs or alcohol, so things stay safe generally.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's no alcohol, there's hardly any drugs. The parties are lame most of the time. It's NOT a party school, so don't try and have fun here.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are some nice fun parties but they cost to get in even though nothing is offered except music most of the time. No one really parties in apartments because it's to easy to get in trouble.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is always a party to go to, but even if you aren't into parties there are always fun activities happening!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

BYU-Idaho is not a party school. Nightlife activities range from catching a movie to attending a house party. That probably sounds pretty mild, and that’s because it is. Most of the big events that take place in Rexburg are funded by and held at the University. There are no local bars or clubs where students go frequently to hang out and party. This is partially because of the Honor Code and students' personal commitments to refrain from consuming alcohol, but also because Mormon culture approaches nightlife and parties a little differently than the typical experience portrayed in movies or in many U.S. cities. Most students’ idea of a party is something a little more similar to a sock hop with cake and punch or maybe some Pictionary or human battleship and other activities that designate more of a specified purpose other than simply partying.

BYU-I does have a lot of concerts and performances that students really enjoy. Events like Battle of the Bands, Acoustic Café, and Guitars Unplugged get a lot of quality student performances that students get really excited about seeing and make the effort to attend regularly. The University also hires other performers and gives students reduced ticket prices to see exceptional shows. A lot of the concerts also have dances afterward that students enjoy.
