    In Rexburg you are surrounded by some of the most diverse and beautiful landscapes in the United States. If you have a car there are countless opportunities from hiking, to hot springs, to caving, you name it! In town we have the basic bowling and laser-tag combo. There are also dances thrown in random places around town nearly every weekend. Not much else can be found within walking distance of campus though.

    At BYU-Idaho, there are many fun things to do on campus: One is Acoustic Night, where random students get together to watch other students sing and play guitar, etc. Another thing to do is to go to the University Store with your friends. It's actually very fun to check things out. Get involved in sports on campus, competitive or recreational. Go see a play or a musical concert at the Snow. Get a group of workout friends and hit the gym in the Hart. As far as off campus, you can walk to Sammie's with friends, where they not only provide amazing pie shakes, but also concerts, mic nights, and poetry slams. Some people I've known have gone up to the sand dunes, or rockclimbing or floating in the lake. Porter park is the best park for games and activies to play with family home evening groups. There is a number of things to do in the Rexburg, Idaho area, you'll see.

    There's a local movie theater that plays relatively new releases for only a few bucks. There's also lots of intramural sports, weekly dances, swimming, a number of fun clubs, etc. All the basics, really. Like I said previously, it's not really a party school, so most students find their own clean ways to have fun, which usually includes baking cookies with their significant other on the weekend while they sing along to Vocal Point playing from their laptops. I honestly think those are the experiences you remember forever, though. But again, that's just me.

    There is always something to do. On Tuesday's there are devotionals that all students are invited to. Each week there are dances held on campus, with different dance classes available to students. A wellness committee organizes different events like 5k's and triathlon's. In Rexburg there are two movie theater's, one is only $2 and another has the newest movies. An hour and a half away is Yellowstone National Park, and 45 minutes east is Grand Teton National Park. The school has tons of outdoors activities, cross country skiing, outdoor adventures, ropes courses, backpacking, mountain biking, everything! The Saint Anthony Sand Dunes are nearby and students go out there to have bon fires and four wheeling. The ice caves are popular too, and it is always fun to hear what people did over the weekend.

    Campus activities aren't my cup o' tea, so I can't help you there. Absolutely any outdoor activities and motorsports are a possibility, you just have to find the right people. Talk to everybody; 90% of people will accept you right in to their group. Offer to pitch in for gas, and the more local college guys will probably let you go boating with them.

    There's a variety of different types of dance on campus, such as country. You can also just look at posters and fliers all over campus to see if there are any concerts coming up or when the next comedy show is. If you're looking for some in to do off campus, there are dances almost every weekend, you can have a bonfire, go off-roading, shooting, relax at the park, etc!

    There are many activities and things provided by the school that don't cost much at all. There are oftentimes something from the performing arts classes that you could go to that are pretty much always really good. I always enjoyed outdoor activities. There are caves, and camping or hiking spots within an hour drive away that you could go to. Some of those in the Teton Mountains. Which are huge and very beautiful. I got to go for about $10 I think as part of a group to stay the night at a cabin. They provided vans that took us up there, as well as meals and mattresses. There were several games they had set up for us there too. They always have activities through the outdoor activities. I went to one that had a zip line, boating, obstacle courses, several climbing posts, and other stations that were really fun. I don't remember if that one was free or not, but I don't think it was more than $10 either. The sand dunes are really close as well as a drive in movie theater. Another thing I really liked doing was going dancing. They had Latin, Country Swing, and Ballroom that I know of. Each one was at a different place or different day of the week. You would go in the evening and they would teach for the first hour and then you would pair up and dance for the next three hours. If you went to the lessons, it was $2 with your school ID, but if you came just for the dancing, it was $1. I did that a lot.There was also slack lining, a pool, several housing areas have sand volleyball nets, maybe a basketball court, or a tennis court.
