This school is terrible! They make changes to your classes after what you agree to take. Then make more after the semester starts so you have to pay more for the class. The financial aid department is terrible and the VA rep is terrible about completing the requestes on time.
This is an excellent school, especially for the price. Because of the affordable tuition, there are a lot of diverse people that attend here from all over the world which creates a very interesting and fun environment for the students.
I'm a non traditional student, the classes that they offer online and the night classes are wonderful and it makes scheduling easier while working a full time job.
On July 18, 2016 I had a scheduled personal visit to Black Hills State University in Spearfish, South Dakota. My visit was amazing. This is my first choice school. I like how small the school is. I am from a small town in South Dakota, so I like the small environment. The student showing me around told me, "Here, you aren't just a number. You are a student. Professors will make time for you if you are struggling." This made my decision easier. Since it's a small school, I like the fact that a professor will take time out of their day to help me.
My professors at Black Hills State University have all helped nurture my passion for elementary education. I love going to school there and would not change my experiences there for anything.

Schoolndoes not have a problem
I always feel I can talk to any professors or departments.....My course load is 15 to 16 hrs per semester

Not a huge part as in some colleges where sport rules
I have had very good school experience so far
when it comes to football, we aren't very good but it doesn't help that our school spirit sucks even more..
i really enjoy living and working on campus, i just wish we had AC in the dorms...
The professor truly are the most enjoyable part of BHSU.
It's a very good small university. It seems relatively well known in the surrounding areas.

A small campus, seems very safe. I have never felt threatened or have been afraidz
I am not involved in a sorority or Greek life, and I have no idea its impact on campus life.
I am not involved in any sort of campus athletics and have no idea their impact on campus life.
It's a great school, professors are awesome as are the counselor and advisors. The Financial Aid department is very unpleasant, not just because the school is ridiculously expensive, but the people staffed there are stand-offish and are not helpful.
