2 College Freshman

Parking: There are two different parking passes - blue and green. Blue costs more, and there are less of them, but they are closer to the dorms.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: A good majority of the school does not shower. People have been seen to wear tails, and a good majority of those have neckbeards and wear fedoras. However, there are athletics here, which bring in a more "jock" type persona. Parties happen off campus almost every weekend, and mostly the jocks attend. The "gamers" would be more likely foud at anime club, or game nights.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is only one gas station in the entire town that is open 24 hours. Also, there is four fast food restaurants, and about five sit down restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: We have very extreme sets of people here, athletes and gamers. People are very open about their sexuality - straight, gender-fluids, pansexual, bisexual, etc. Before attending school here, I had not heard of half of the sexualities that people are.There is a pretty present presence of exchange students as well.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: First year students only have two dorms available, upper class men have two plus the 8-plexus (4 dorms total, also includes an apartment building as part of campus). First year dorms do not have AC while the others do. Pretty small, either single room or with a roommate.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The rules in the dorms are pretty strict, and if you are caught then you get into trouble.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Town is very small, the biggest city in SD is an hour away. Other schools are within 45 min- hour and a half away.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Computer majors are very well noted, otherwise the other majors are not that great.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's a college town, houses and apartments for rent

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: RA's do most of the enforcing.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Hot in August, no AC. Terribly cold winter - SNOW.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They are decent places to live.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports are decent not well known but students still like to support their athletes. The community center is also a great place for athletes and non athletes to work out and hang out.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: parking spaces are cheap and easy to find, but parking tickets are expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have any greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: As a Marketing and Management major with a minor in Audio production the fact that DSU integrates technology into their curriculum will take me really far in today's workforce.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: A lot of the people drink at the bars and at house parties but it is not a big part of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The town is very helpful and friendly toward students and the town is in a good location in between 2 big cities with big colleges in both. The town of Madison is very small though so there is not much for options.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are more guys than girls here but it is slowly averaging out.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is very little campus crime, the main crime is probably drinking or drugs. Everyone feels really safe here on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different types of people here at DSU and a majority of people are very accepting. Occasionally you will get a few not accepting people but I am sure you will get that at any campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus is not very strict with their rules, the main enforcers of policy are the resident assistants.
