Brigham Young University - Idaho Reviews
I enjoyed my time at BYU-Idaho! I loved the community and overall small town feel that accompanies Rexburg. Small class sizes are the norm, along with passionate professors who are always willing to assist you in anyway possible to achieve. The campus is small, so it's pretty easy to get to your classes. The only negatives I would have associated with the school is the lack of clubs & organizations that the school endorses (MEChA, College Dems/Republicans, etc.) and also, specifically for non-religious individuals, the fact that the school is a based on Christian ideals, as the school is associated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Overall, I would say that BYU-I is a really great school for its affordability and dedication for students to achieve in academically.
I love BYU-I! As a private religious university, the atmosphere is so different than other campuses (I've looked too). Also, the faculty are really focused on you, your learning and development. Most classes are small, not like the usual lecture hall classes with 2- or 300 students. BYU-I has a learning model that all their classes take which includes teaching others, so there's a lot of working with groups and teams, but unlike traditional group work where only one person ends up doing all the work, I love working with these groups, because they become your support for the class. Overall, BYU-I is an incredible place.
Brigham Young University - Idaho is an amazing school. Very high quality education, absolutely beautiful campus, very good atmosphere on campus and off, and an amazing price. Going to this school has enlightened my mind, strengthened my spirit, and motivated me to continue being better each day and for that I am very grateful. I appreciate all I have learned here and encourage everyone thinking about going to attend and go with an optimist and humble attitude to make the most out of it. There were moments I focused on some really minor dumb rules and it wasn't really fair for me after just how amazing of an opportunity I had to focus on one tiny negative thing like parking or not wearing shorts on campus lol. So please go and be more grateful and mature than I was!
