3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's hard to find off-campus housing. Most apartment buildings are income based, which is bad if you make too much at your job. And rental houses are hard to come by and fill up fast.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I've lived here my whole life so I know a bit more about this, but there are not the best options available. If you don't know what to look for, you will be stuck with the same thing over and over.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There isn't a very big selection of scholarships available at DSU

College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not a partier.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Einstein's Bagels is pretty good and has a good variety, but the Marketplace isn't the best. I try to avoid eating on campus is possible.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is okay. It's just like any other campus.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at this campus. There is no housing available for Greek life because there is none.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of students do not show support of the sports teams here. The school spirit is one of the worst I have seen. The athletic facilities are super nice, because we just got a new gym floor. There are few fans of any athletes here. Most of the fans attending games are family of someone that is playing. Not a lot of students show up to games, which is disappointing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is so much cheaper than living on campus. The rule here at DSU is as a freshman and sophomore you must live on campus. This is frustrating because everyone knows living off campus will save you money on your tuition, but you are forced to live on campus during your first 2 years here.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few places to eat off campus. They are not as expensive as you would think, because most are fast food places. A lot of these restaurants have student discounts.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The only thing concerning, is that anyone can let anyone in a dorm building. Usually if someone is waiting to get into the dorm without a key, people will just open it up and let them come insides without asking questions.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I only receive scholarship for what I got on my ACT score.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are many parties that take place in the underground of the TC. They have a very positive impact on student experience.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't hardly eat on campus, because I live in an apartment where I can cook my own food. The TC has decent food, but sometimes are running out of food by the time I want to eat. Einsteins is a great place to eat. The quality of food is excellent, but the price of food can be a bit high.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Personally, I prefer living in the 8 plex apartments through the campus compared to living in the actual dorms. It is more quiet, which benefits studying time, and time to relax. The cost is a good price for living in such great buildings, which are only a few blocks away from where classes take place. It was super easy to be approved to live here. I just had to fill out a form with my roommates and we got the place!

4 College Junior

Party Scene: It's off campus and not a well-known place. Best place to go.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It was relatively easy to sign up and register with this college.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is okay. There isn't a lot of room in the dorms but it is spacious enough to live in.

2 College Student

Campus Food: same stuff everyday. very bland

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: newer places around town but a lot of old places

3 College Student

Party Scene: same places have parties every weekend

3 College Student

Local Area: small town with a few things to do

College Student

Greek Life: We have know greek life on camps

Administration: The nice part about our school is that the Resident Assistants do not discipline. They are only required to write observation reports and then the Resident Director of the building takes care of the rest. The pros of that include the ability to get along easier with your Resident Assistants, to trust them easier, and mutual respect is built and harder to break down. The officers on campus are rarely seen, unless they are requested, so they don't affect students' lives much. The alcohol and drug policies are strict, but they are also fair. There is a three-strike rule and the rules are made by the Board for all of the public colleges in South Dakota, and not by just the school, so they are easier to abide by.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There aren't many restaurants off campus. There are a few locally owned ones, but the rest are just fast food chains, such as McDonald's and Taco John's. Personally, I would rather eat in our cafeteria. However, we are offered discounts at a few of the places and most of them take "Trojan Gold" which is money loaded onto our ID cards.
