The Activities program at BYU-Idaho focuses on students and is in many ways a laboratory of real life experiences. This innovative year-round program centers on getting students involved through a wide range of activities that meets differing interests and abilities. The premise that students are free to “act and not be acted upon” is the foundation of Activities. Students will be participants and not just spectators. A student’s commitment can range from simple participation to teaching, coaching, or mentoring. In Activities, a student simply chooses an area of interest, determines the level of participation, and then experiences an unequalled opportunity of involvement. All activities are structured within four areas – Arts, Enrichment, Physical, and Social. Under each area, categories have been arranged to provide students an array of activities to choose from.
The Arts are closely aligned with the academic departments of art, dance, music, and theatre. Enrichment activities focus on leadership, service, academics, women’s, and married student programs. Physical activities are subdivided into fitness, outdoors, competitive athletics, and intramurals. Social activities include talent, entertainment, and dances. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved! Life is meant to be experienced, not just observed. Never before have there been so many options for getting more out of an educational experience.
