BYU-Idaho: Advice For Freshmen

Advice for a new Freshman:

  • Don’t overbook yourself. You need time to be able to get in, and learn everything that you need to learn. If you do too much, you end up just floating through school, and don’t learn what is intended. Also just know that your Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ are very much a part of this school, and are very concerned about you. Just involve them in everything you do, and you will always come out on top. (Derek, 2017)
  • Attend devotional every week! (Munyinda, 2016-2017)
  • Don’t be afraid to live while you’re at BYU-I. Get involved in the outdoor activities to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding areas and talented people running them. (Eric, 2008-2010)
