The faculty, staff, student life, other students and overall adventure at BYU-I is excellent! The classes are great, the professors are very friendly and make time to have appointments with students if they want. A lot of the professors are also actual professionals such as doctors, dietitians, have phd's, masters, etc. The campus itself is a good size, the facilities are beautiful, gyms are quite large, gym is pretty good, the university even has it's own football, softball, baseball, fields, and a TON of activites for the students. There are plenty of food places around town. To top it all off, there is SO MUCH TO DO if you LOVE the outdoors. I went on so many trips to hot springs, mountain hikes, parks, camping adventures, dirtbiking, stargazing, dunes and much more. BYU-I is amazing if you like a medium sized college experience with tons of outdoor fun, and if you want to meet new people, especially if you want to date. It's great!

One of the most important characteristics of Brigham Young University-Idaho is that, as a student, you know the university is run by ordinary people who want to get to know you. In all of my classes, I met with my teachers for one-on-one help. Unexpectedly, my academic efforts made it possible for me to find out that my science teacher was a Harry Potter fan. I was also able to see other professors on a more personal level as they sacrificed time for me. All of them got to know me on a first name basis and wrote me letters of recommendation for future scholarships!

If I could change one thing, it would be the school's enforcement of minor rules. I believe that students should be invited to live the principles for which the rules stand, not the specifics.

Overall, I am very pleased with BYU-Idaho's quality of education, feel happy there, and will continue to attend until I receive my bachelor's degree.
I love Brigham Young University of Idaho! The spirit of this school is so great and students and teachers are all welcoming. Compared to most schools, it isn't very exciting considering there are no competitive sports and there isn't a very big party scene. Despite this, it is still a super fun school to go to if you are looking for something a little more laid back. They offer many intramural and encourage their students to be involved in anything that interests them. One of my favorite aspects of this school is that the teachers are so passionate and personal with you. You can really feel that they want you to succeed and are willing to work with you to reach your goals. Although I sometimes wish Rexburg was a little more exciting, I am so grateful I chose to attend BYUI.
