3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a good experience at DSU.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: They take a very active role in making sure students have a safe space to go in case something happens. They also provide a lot of awareness for students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The admissions process was great! As a transfer student, you were put into a separate section than other incoming freshmen. They also gave you a separate advisor to help you through the transition process and checked up on you repeatedly throughout the first semester.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I don't participate much in the athletic programs, but they are enjoyable to watch and taken very seriously here.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Best transfer decision I ever made. A much better fit.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: we don't have Greek life

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Its small but very detail oriented

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.
