Brigham Young University-Idaho Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (26)
I got my undergraduate degree at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Brigham Young University-Idaho is a friendly place. Looking back, I realize that most of my teachers were excellent. Brigham Young University-Idaho is expanding at a fast rate, and it's because of its success. I come from a low income family, but I had excellent grades, and BYU-Idaho provided me with scholarships that made it possible for me to go to school. Even though at times college was difficult, I don't regret in the slightest pushing to get my degree. I loved my experience at BYU-Idaho and I am now pursuing a graduate degree at Idaho State University.
Brigham Young University - Idaho is a wonderful university where people with the same values and similar beliefs can gather and learn in a setting that combines religion and secular education. The class sizes are smaller than the typical college classroom with about 30-40 students in each class. Because of the small class sizes, professors know your name and are more accessible to you when you need help. My professors truly care about me and have helped me obtain most of my jobs throughout my education. I have been in contact with them and would consider them good friends. At this university there is no segregation between teachers and students, everyday is an opportunity to learn.
Great teachers. Always willing to help. Very cold in the winter and fall. Dress appropriately. Social life in the spring is great if you like outdoor activities. Students do complain a lot. It is a small farm town. Very conservative. Be prepared to take a lot of religion classes.
I absolutely loved the one-on-one insight I consistently received from the professors at my school. Although the university has over 15,000 students, the music department always felt like a family. I was also awarded with many musical opportunities throughout each semester that enhanced my experience and my resume. There are career workshops and classes for students who are not sure what to major in, and there are academic advisors who will help a student decide on a major, a minor, and/or one, two, or three "clusters," which are like miniature minors within the degree. It is amazing how a student can make their degree flexible for their career path. I would highly recommend this school to anyone, no matter which degree one chooses to pursue.
I completed a BS Online through BYU-Idaho in Business Management. I highly recommend this degree to anyone who wants to finish their degree while still maintaining a full-time job. The professors know what they are doing and cater to your needs. The degree pushes you to have good communication with others as well as stay on top of your studies. It's your choice if you want to get something out of the degree, and by having it online, you don't have to worry about running to classes.
I thoroughly enjoyed my educational experience at BYU-Idaho. It was a safe environment for learning, and allowed for learning in all aspects. I was able to grow both educationally, and spiritually, which was something I enjoyed. I also thoroughly enjoyed the teaching program. The teacher that prepared me for teaching, better prepared me than my student teaching experience. It was rigorous and challenging, and I wanted to quit multiple times, but it was exactly what I needed to enter the professional world, prepared.
I loved going to BYUI. My teachers were amazing, and I loved being able to always get the help that I needed. They were always understanding of problems. I loved the environment and made many friends. The price for what you get is amazing!
The atmosphere of the university is amazing. So peaceful. The other students are friendly.
I loved BYU Idaho!! The campus is small enough that you get to know your professors and aren't just a number. The classes offered were great, and with the beautiful mission setting, Rexburg was the perfect place to go to school!! Would definitely go back!!!
I loved college!! I took several elective classes that really broadened my knowledge of things that were interesting to me. I went on a study abroad trip to Europe, took snowboarding, dance, animal science, and cooking. By taking my time in school and taking classes outside of my major, I know that I became a more well-rounded person and can contribute better to society, relate to my students, and be more understanding to people of all nations, beliefs, and cultures. Attending college not only gives you a chance to get out of your parent's house and stand on your own two feet, but it teaches you responsibility, how to learn and question things for yourself, and it gives you a sense of purpose and pride. Going to school will be hard, but when you learn how to deal with issues, you are learning life lessons that will significantly impact your life. You learn how to get along with people you might not otherwise associate with; you learn how to solve problems that are hard; you challenge yourself, and you have a ton of fun in the midst of it all. I cherish my college days, and I wouldn't change one thing about the experiences I learned while in school. College was literally the best thing I have ever done, and it has created so many opportunities afterward with my career that I never would've been able to experience without my schooling. My degree and college memories are priceless and no matter what happens to my family or the economy, no one can take those away. Those experiences make me who I am today.
