Brigham Young University - Idaho Reviews

I've had a pretty good experience here! The culture is a little weird as it is an LDS college so most of the students are LDS. There is an honor code and curfew that must be followed, which can be kind of annoying at times. If you don't follow honor code, there is a risk of being kicked out of school. Religion courses are required which can also be kind of annoying if you're not a religion class kind of person. Class sizes are small which means a lot of individual attention from the professor. The quality of education varies major to major I think. Some people love it and some hate it so it is kind of a case by case basis. There's also no competitive athletics, only intramurals so that is kind of annoying too (but there is talk about bringing them back).

Brigham Young University- Idaho is located in the little town of Rexburg, surrounded by rolling hills and farm fields. You can really feel at home here in a way few schools can make you feel at home. The campus is beautiful and the people are friendly. There's a quaint apple orchard right outside! The welcoming vibe doesn't end when you leave the campus, though. Even in my online classes, I can feel the warmth of professors and classmates that care about me. Being at BYUI is like being part of a family. Each class contains information that you can take with you as you build a career and, someday, a family of your own.
I absolutely LOVE byu-Idaho! The professors are amazing and so is the social life. It is a very homely place and I always can't wait for my track. The school is in the middle of all the apartments and near all the stores and restaurants which makes transportation very easy for someone like me without a car. The school provides free tutoring, lots of places to hangout/study and there are also many activities that you can attend. Byu-Idaho is just a great place to be.
