What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
Make sure you set aside time to study. Get your homework out of the way early on so you don't have to worry about it later.
I would also suggest first time students to stay in on campus housing for the first semester. It helps you to become familiar with the campus and its a great way to meet other first time students. But after that first semester, don't be afraid to venture into off campus housing.
Know that you can have fun, but make sure you have a good balance between that and doing your homework and studying.
Study. It really pays off in the end.
Jillise from Boise, ID
Do your homework first, then play! It is so easy to get distracted by all the fun activities. If you do your homework first you will find yourself excelling in your classes. Also ask questions! Don't feel stupid, everyone has questions and lost of people have the same question as you so be brave and ask away! Along with that be out going toward others, you will make so many good friends this way. Also be involved! There are so many things that you can do! Enjoy school, and as long as you set your priorities and follow them you will have a great experience!
Brittany from Kaysville, UT
Develop good study habits now! There are so many events and fun people to hang out with it sometimes is easy to push aside your homework for more fun things. Stay focused and don't let your grades drop, once you fall behind it becomes Way harder to catch back up.
Emily from Roseville, CA
First of all, if you're not sure where to go for college, I would strongly recommend putting lots of prayer into your decision. But if you do decide that this is the school for you, you should decide early on where you're going to live. This is my first semester, and I'm living off campus, but it's right across the street from campus. I love it, but so does everyone else, so you need to turn in your apartment applications early, or you won't get a room. Also, talk to the advisers early on so they can help you decide what classes to sign up for. I would try to complete your Foundations classes within the first couple of years however. But most of all, come prepared to learn AND have fun! You need both!
Kesha from Idaho Falls, ID
If you don't like small towns, or have grown up in a large city it may be difficult to adjust. However, there are great people around Rexburg and you learn to fall in love with it! I'm from a small town, so it was easy especially since Rexburg is bigger than my hometown.
Adrianna from Charleston, IL
There is so much to do and so much fun, but remember there is also school work. Also make sure that all the finances for school is figured out before the semester starts.
Melissa from Gilbert, AZ
If you aren't willing to work hard and want an easy A, don't go here. The teachers expect you to learn and the way they teach is through discussions and lectures. You have to come to class prepared, but you end up learning so much more because of it.
Cameo from Yucaipa, CA
Come to college with a positive perspective and a desire to learn and grow. Be prepared for new things. College is a time to break away from your family and become an individual yourself. Make the next few years the best you can.
Alexa from Rio Rancho, NM
Roadmaps for Majors (and minors) can be seen visually in the catalogs and online. These indicate all of the prerequisites, and in which order they can be taken, in order to graduate. For students unsure of their intended fields, these will help know which path is best for them before they start, or waste time taking classes that don't push them toward their goals.

As an aside, it's not necessary to purchase the bulk of your textbooks from the campus bookstore. Cheaper alternatives can almost ALWAYS be found by online retailers, like Half.com, eBay.com, Amazon, etc. Buy your books (used) from the bookstore, but then go shopping elsewhere to find cheaper deals, and return your books to the bookstore once they arrive. Often, you save more by buying online, and forfeiting the loyalty book buyback program offered, than by paying for new (or used) books and selling them back again at the end of the semester.
Steven from Henderson, NV
dress warm and keep up the reputation the alumni hold.
