5 College Student

Overall Experience: My preference was a small and quiet college with a small student to teacher ratio, and DSU was it. The teaching staff here are very keen to what they teach, and each student receives the help they need in order to maintain high grades. The variety of classes offered was actually pretty good considering this is a smaller college. Technology and teaching education are what make DSU stand out.

Overall Experience: More than 90% of the graduating students from DSU land a job right out of college. The college offers job fairs quite frequently for the students, and the offered majors at DSU are in increasing demand as time goes on.

Health & Safety: Never was there a passing moment in which I felt unsafe at DSU. A nice, small, and quiet community adds to the serenity of the campus.

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms were pretty small, but not uncomfortably small. There was a nice table in the rooms for the two students to work at comfortably. The distance to the classes was just a short walk away, as well as to the dining services.

Overall Experience: Class size is very competitive, with no more than a 20:1 student to teacher ratio. The advisers at the school are very knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely choose DSU as my primary school.

Athletics: The team performance wasn't one of the greatest, but the school spirit always remains high in respect for the teams.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Crime is relatively low on campus - I have not had any problems with safety since going to DSU. The residence buildings are on complete lockdown after 5pm unless students have a biometric scan on file, so going to buildings after hours is always secure too. There are security personnel on campus day and night to ensure student safety, and I feel very safe on this campus. Of course, as a female, walking alone anywhere at night makes me wary, but at DSU I feel confident and comfortable walking across campus. Naturally I still exercise reasonable precaution, but it never hurts to be prepared. Either way, DSU is an extremely safe campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The academic quality of DSU is one of the best things about this place. The professors all seem to know what they are talking about, have the qualifications, and seem very passionate about what they teach. As an aspiring future professor myself, I look zealously for these traits in my own teachers, as it is something I think every teacher should have regardless of the subject they are teaching.

The professors on campus make me actually want to go to class and learn, but they also offer extensive office hours where the conversations can become even more interesting and insightful than those that take place in the classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As I am only a sophomore education major, I am not interested in an internship so I am unsure about this portion of campus life. However, I am confident that DSU degrees are proudly accepted in workplaces as our students are highly qualified with technological expertise and the finest research tools around. There are often several employers on campus offering job interviews and taking applications for positions and occupations. The quality of the career center on campus is great. There are several people there who are eager to look over resumes for you to offer improvement, help you find a job during school, or even find a post-graduation job to help jump-start your career.

Campus Housing: Last year, my housing situation was fantastic - everyone got along well and those that didn't just didn't interact with the rest of my floor. I had a spectacular RA and the dorm was very clean. The setup of the rooms actually made sense.

However, this year the RA is subpar, half of the appliances in the kitchen work properly, and the floor on which I live is extremely annoying. I understand that it is a college dorm and some noise is to be expected, but the overall diminishing of quality from Higbie Hall to Emry Hall is obvious based on how many issues we have had this year alone. Perhaps if there were a different RA that actually concerned herself with the floor problems - health issues in the kitchen for one, and would stop being so concerned about the nonexistent noise complaints when people are simply talking in their rooms (she ignores the yelling because they are her friends) the situation might be a lot better.

Overall, I wish I did not have to live in the dorms ever again.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love it at DSU. The instructors are really great in their fields, they actually know what they are talking about, and I enjoy going to class to learn from them. Plus, since it is a small campus you really get to know the faculty outside of the classroom too. As an English Education major, most of the English department know me personally and I enjoy just chatting with them.

Dakota State is very technologically integrated too. Every student is lent a tablet computer for classwork and they work really well for homework. They are not pristine machines, but they get the job done.

The campus is small, the environment is super friendly, not to mention really nerdy (which I love), and the friends that I have met here are like my new family. I would not change anything about my situation if I could, except to maybe become more involved on such an awesome campus!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: People usually follow the policies that we are given. Though the smell in some dorms could be better it is nice. The dorms are convenient because they are located close to where your classes take place.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Athletics are about the same as how it was for my high school. There is spirit and support, but you also have the people that don't necessarily care for sports.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are parties around town that people attend; also most people get together and play games.

Academics: Certain professors are great. With that said there are professors that are not as great. I have yet to fell overloaded with assignments, and if someone wants a quiet place to study there is a library on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: A lot of people are accepting. DSU also is involved in foreign student programs. A lot of the people who work in the food services on campus are foreign.

Drug Safety: People don't partake in the drug use in the public. Usually there are parties where people go to drink and whatnot, but it usually people don't show up to class drunk.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms at DSU are well kept. They are cleaned daily, except weekends. The people here are friendly and you can usually find someone that has the same interest as you. The dorms are also close to the buildings you have classes in, so they are very convenient. The worst thing about living on campus is that a good percentage of people here don't shower, and if you're stuck in the halls where they don't, it will smell.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I'm not very athletic, nor have I ever been very athletic. The Community Center that they have here is great for everyone, not just the athletes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I chose this school due to the fact that it was the cheapest in state and had the best graphic design course at an affordable cost. This college is very heavily technology oriented. There are always gaming events going on, which I find intriguing even though I am not a big multiplayer game person. I've recently been recruited to help with propaganda for Nanocon since my major is Graphic Design. I was very excited by this considering that I am only a freshman, and everyone says that you never get any good opportunities when you're a freshman.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is safe, the only problem is the security guards are unarmed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are very friendly and are willing to answer questions. They also are willing to help in extracurricular activities.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The cyber-operations program is very uncommon, thus the demand for students in this program is very high.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Freshman residence is rather poor in that RAs do not enforce policies, so there are people yelling all through the night, despite mandatory quiet hours. This makes life difficult for those who have difficulty sleaping

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are good, and the cyber program is unique. Very few schools have the facilities, training, or degree to focus on cyber security. The professors are approachable and good teachers who care about your success.
