“BYU-Idaho has taught me how to belong. I have been reminded of my value and potential every day in my classes and through the activities and organizations offered. My classes help me stretch myself, the societies help me apply what I’ve learned and the organizations help me to continue to want to learn. It is not only a university it is a place to come and belong.”

–Aubrey Christiansen, from California studying Communications

“The people here have treated all they had as the Lord’s and always counted it as enough. And they have used it as if it was the offering of the poorest widow to her Lord and to His kingdom ... Because of that faithful obedience and sacrifice, I certify the Lord has poured out His Spirit here.”

–President Henry B. Eyring, BYU-Idaho President 1971–77
