"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."

  • Degree: Music
"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 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."

"I loved BYU-I. The campus is so friendly and you bump into friends all the time. The professors were excellent and concerned about the students. It's nice that they don't have to do research because it gives them more time to work with you."

"It was a great college. I learned a lot from my time there. Everyone is super friendly and approachable. The profressors want whats best for you and are open to help you in any way that you need. The classes are small enough where you get that attention, although the university is growing pretty rapidly and that may change."

"It is a religious school owned and run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (aka Mormon). Located about an hour south of Yellowstone it offers a great deal of outdoor opportunities. These include, camping, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, cross country skiing and many more. The school itself is located in a small town with most things easy enough to walk or bike to. It is very affordable but heavy on the rules so if you are planning on partying this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a good school at a great price where everyone is trying to help each other then this might be a good fit for you. True not for everyone but very fun, accepting and nice."

"It was a college that upheld it's standards. The students lived by the honor code and it reflected in the way that they would treat each other. BYUI helped me mature morally, spiritually, and emotionally. My relationships from college are treasured. My professors actually knew me by name and cared about me."

"Great school, Great environment. This is the type of school and program that you really have to put forth your time and commitment to achieve the most amazing experiences and growth ever. Perfect for the LDS environment, you have to be creative in doing stuff in Rexburg, although it is growing, but it's no Provo. Another thing is get to know the professors, ask them questions take time to learn from their career experiences."

"What a great school to attend to. Starting out it was confusing but once you get the routine down things just worked out very well. One of the major things the school has helped me with is how to be analytical. To see both sides of the situation. As for my major it provided me the experience I have always been looking for. Not only do you learn but you do as well and that's the best way for me to learn. Remember its what you make of it and how much you put into it that ends up defining you who you will become. As well always work hard and strive to get an A in all your classes."
