How many of these people do you know?

The 7 People You Meet At BYU-Idaho

Like any college, BYU-Idaho has a unique student population with their own unique stereotypes. Chances are if you have ever spent even five minutes in The Crossroads, you have met at least one person from each of these categories, and probably more. In fact, it is likely that you fall under one of these categories too! It's okay though, we still love you.

All in good fun, here are seven of the kinds of people you are sure to meet during your time at BYU-Idaho.

1. Summer Sales Bro

Often can be spotted wearing a polo shirt from their company that is two sizes too small, and talking to everyone like they are making a sales pitch. Be cautious, these guys can somehow talk you into thinking that spending 5 months in the middle of nowhere working 60 hour weeks is a really fun way to spend your summer.

2. The Wanna-Be DJ

Playing a set at Skizzy's one time does not qualify you as an EDM artist. Sorry.

3. The Idaho Hater

That one person who constantly feels the need to tell everyone how much they think Rexburg sucks. Always complaining about how bad the weather is or how bored they are or how much they want to go home. This person doesn't seem to realize that coming here was completely their choice and that they can literally leave any time they want.

4.Honor Code Nazi

We all know one, and some of us even live with one. Coming home at 12:07? You better believe that this person will be calling the Honor Office about it! You knew the rules when you decided to come here! How could you?!

5. The Photographer

Even if nobody ever actually pays them to have photos taken, they somehow are always flooding your social media feeds with photos from their "shoots." Apparently owning a camera and creating a blog is all it takes to become a professional photographer these days. Don't forget to check out the link in their bio!

6. The Chronic Dater

This person has gone on a date pretty much every single day for the entire time they've been at BYU-Idaho, but never seems to be in an actual relationship. Flirting is their full time job. Probably has gone on dates with at least three of your friends. Often can be spotted cruising around The Crossroads and getting phone numbers from freshman.

7. The "Rebel"

This person skips the last hour of church and doesn't even care. Likes to brag about the fact that they have never gone to a single devotional. Wears all black even when it is 100 degrees. Acts like they are too cool for everything that happens in Rexburg, but are also at every single dance party, so draw your own conclusions. And of course, this person only is at BYU-Idaho because their parents "forced" them to.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
