Brigham Young University Idaho - "Brigham Young University–Idaho (BYU–Idaho or BYU–I) is a private college in Rexburg, Idaho. Founded in 1888, the college is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). It transitioned from a junior college to a baccalaureate institution in 2001 and was known for the greater part of its history as Ricks College. BYU-Idaho offers programs in the sciences, engineering, agriculture, management, and performing arts. The college is broadly organized into 33 departments within six colleges and its parent organization, the Church Educational System (CES), sponsors sister schools in Utah and Hawaii.” Source:–Idaho

Ricks College

Ricks College was a liberal arts college located in Rexburg, Idaho, and was affiliated with the Church of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). The institution was founded in 1888, even before Idaho achieved statehood, and pursued an independent existence for over a century, as witnessed by the Centennial flag. Eventually, however, Brigham Young University, the major LDS/Mormon institution of higher education worldwide, obtained control of the college and renamed it Brigham Young University - Idaho.

Brigham Young now has three campuses:

  • Provo, Utah
  • Laie, Hawaii is known as Brigham Young University of the Pacific (the name tends to change frequently)
  • Brigham Young University - Idaho, which is the former Ricks College.
