Brigham Young University-Idaho Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (27)
I really enjoyed going to school at Brigham Young University Idaho. I met some people there that I would never meet anywhere else and friends that I will cherish forever. I definately would recommend looking in to this college and all that it can offer. It only continues to grow and develop new things.
Fun if you are Mormon or like rules about what you can do. Overall nice, cheap and in a great outdoor area. Near Yellowstone and other parks!
Brigham Young University has an excellent quality of education for the price. If you are a member of the LDS church, the tuition is around 1900 per semester after fees. However my program in web development had a very poorly cobbled together amalgamation of classes that was not tailored to the degree at all. There were only 2-3 teachers actually worthwhile, the rest were worthless. Overall I would not recommend this program. However there are many great programs at this school, I just wasn't in the right one.
This College is great. The standards of this university helps harbor quality education. There is a great social environment, with parties as well. The difference is that the only judgment impairing factors in these parties is if you stay up too late. The tuition is very low, even for out of state tuition. The classes are just the right size, and the teachers are accessible: before, during, and after class to meet with you on what you need help with. There are also free tutors available for every subject.
I'm taking part in BYU-I's online program. They offer full degrees online. It has been neat to participate in online discussions with classmates all over the U.S. (and some in other countries). The school has done a great job of making online instruction just as good as on-campus. I have been able to get hands-on experience.
My college experience has been a very good one. I have found Brigham Young University Idaho to be the perfect university for me. Not only is the education excellent, but the services offered at the school are excellent as well. In every class I am encouraged to try my hardest, so I may reach my full potential. If I struggle with what is taught there are free tutoring services available and professors who are more than willing to go out of their way to help with the issue. There is a free gym membership to all students and free personal trainers are also available to help students stay in shape during the semesters. They have academic and career centers available to assists students in deciding what major fits them best, how to build up an effective resume and what careers are available in their field of study. There are plenty social events that are constantly being run by the school and student body. There is a wide variety of clubs to get involved in and service opportunities to take advantage of. Most of the student body is very friendly and uplifting; encouraging and strengthening one another to become good leaders in the industrial and societal world. Most of the approved housing is also at a very reasonable price and located within walking distance to the campus. The small town feel of this learning institution gives the university a sense of unity, peace and purpose. Brigham Young University is a wonderful college that helps high school graduates mature into educated adults that will help society progress wherever they go.
The individual professional writing, editing, and literature classes were excellent. There were so many faculty members that made the subjects truly come alive! One even spoke in old Gaelic when we were studying Beowulf. I also took multiple Russian classes while at BYU-Idaho and the Russian faculty members seriously make you feel like family and know each of their students very well. The only criticism I have is that the English capstone course at that time was a joke. There was nothing to help us create more things for a portfolio, nor instruction on how to network, or prepare us for the working world. We reviewed a lot of still lovely, but simpler literature, most of which I had already read in my previous school years. Hopefully by now they've improved that course.
