BYU-Idaho is a university owned and operated by the LDS church. It is located in the middle of nowhere (Rexburg), and the student population of 13,000 likely exceeds the local town residents. Students are 99% Mormon and come from all over America to attend for 4 years. The social atmosphere is beyond cheesy. To many it is like a never ending EFY conference; racing to get as many NCMO’s (non-commital make-outs) as possible before each semester ends. Some students are more serious, and search their ward menu (ward directory) seeking engagement ASAP; sometimes in as little as one week. This is why the school is sometimes referred to as “BYU-I DO”. Church leaders admonish students to get married and have children (lots of em’) as quickly as possible while continuing to get educated and somehow staying out of debt. Don’t forget getting your 2 year food-storage on top of that. The school administration exhorts students to get good grades, yet complain about grade inflation when the students perform well. Many students live in the library to keep up with their studies; the third floor is reserved for singles looking to get hooked up, it’s pretty much a meat market. Every student is forced to sign a “code of honor” in order to attend the University. Known as the honor code, it prohibits most every behavior and basically acts as the nagging parent you thought you got away from. The code is very, very long- if you wish to see it click here. One must be extra careful no...more...
The school far away from intelligent life and civilization in general that the Mormons go to who didn't get into the real BYU in Utah.

Best college in the world. Was once called "Ricks College" One of the three BYU schools with the other two being in Provo (Which is the more popular one) and Hawaii. This school is located in the small town of Rexburg, Idaho surrounded by the glorious Grand Teton mountains. 99% of the student population is LDS (or mormon)
"BYU-Provo may be the church's school, but BYU-Idaho is the Lord's school"
