First of all. The credits are absolutely worthless. About two years into my mechanical engineering degree and the curriculum was changed around and all the M.E. classes I took are now elective. This is because I had to change catalog year because they no longer offered some of the classes I needed for my original catalog year. Foundation courses are not even accredited and will not transfer to even the other BYU schools. When I transferred out of BYU-ID to the College of Southern Idaho my transcript had 57 elective credits at CSI. Many employers are reluctant to hire BYU-ID students as the school tends to teach that appearances are most important.

Depending on which bishop you have, FHE is mandatory among single students and they're assigned to a number of other single students to make a "FHE group". I've had extremely bad luck because I've had several FHE sisters over the years file police reports against me.

The honor code has absolutely nothing to do with honor. It has to do with how much control the school can have over the students. It's against the honor code to access MySpace, wear shorts, be out after midnight, and expose your bare feet. People have been kicked out of school for wearing shorts on campus because "if they're not going to obey the little rules, they won't obey the big rules." Again, the honor code exists to give school administration control.

The Honor office thrives on false accusation. One famous saying in Rexburg is "Why would someone lie about accusing someone else?"

Parking is absolutely ridiculous. Student parking does not accommodate any vehicle larger than a compact. Parking spaces are scarce as they tend to sell more permits than they have parking spaces.

Like I said before, the honor code and many of the other rules exist so administration can have more control. All internet use is heavily monitored and restricted.

The school hires students for EVERYTHING! No one is trained in their job very well, and dishonesty among staff is horrendous. One experience I had in particular happened when a student hired to monitor internet activity stole my banking information and drained my bank account. He then reported to the honor office that I had been "attacking" the school servers in "hacking" attempts.

Besides me, there have been about three other people of the same name. It was not uncommon that I would get faulty parking tickets, charged for rent where I was not living, and having my mail lost.

The luxury of not sharing a bedroom with someone is considered to be very bad at this school. This is because of the many prostitution rings that have sprung up in Rexburg. The school tries very hard to keep this information hushed up.

So even though this school was mostly bad, there was a little good. I'm thankful for the good friends I made. And I'm glad that I was made aware to many of the mistakes that the church makes.

I regret choosing to further my education at this "university" and I warn others that plan to do the same. If you want to become married quickly this is probably the place to do it as strangers tend to agree to marriage quickly here.

If you ask local Declo residents, they will recommend that you go to Rupert or Burley if you need to buy stamps, mail a package, or get a passport.

Parking is absolutely ridiculous. Student parking does not accommodate any vehicle larger than a compact. Parking spaces are scarce as they tend to sell more permits than they have parking spaces. When the school decides to plow the parking lots, it is very disorganized, and they fail to notify the students to move their cars.
