There is Something Different About this Place
Those who come to campus quickly realize the wonderful and special atmosphere found at BYU-Idaho. It is referred to as the “Spirit of Ricks.” As Elder David A. Bednar has said, “The Spirit of Ricks suggests the spirituality, the desire for obedience, the personal caring and warmth, the humility and modesty, the friendliness and genuine concern for others, the bright smiles and cheerful hellos, and so many other elements that make this university an unusually inviting and supporting and nurturing institution.” Everything at BYU-Idaho is designed to maintain this special spirit.
Students and employees at BYU-Idaho seek to live moral virtues encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ by upholding their commitment to the university’s Honor Code. Read more about university standards and see why BYU-Idaho is a special place to learn and live.
