3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school consists of about 1100 students. My own high school had about 3500. It was very hard adjusting to the whole small town and small school life that Dakota state University brings to me. I still struggle when i am so far away from family but i managed to stick to it and ended my first semester with a 3.8 GPA. The University emphasizes utilizing technology in every aspect and i think that is an absolutely amazing thing considering my major involved being up to date with computers and knowing how to use new technology. If i could start all over again I cant say I would end up at this school again. Its very difficult for me to adjust and it doesn't give me the college feel I've been looking for. it does however give me the tools i need in life to succeed in what i want to do and i feel that to be the most important aspect.

Off-Campus Dining: Most are fast food, but there are some downtown or restaurants you would only find in Madison or locally.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am a transfer student and getting everything over to DSU was a very easy process. They were ready to help me and made sure I applied for everything I was eligible for. At my previous college, I was never aware of certain scholarships I could have gotten and at DSU, they talked with me about them.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student, so I do not live in the doors, but have friends in the dorms. They seem happy with their room and roommate and the cleanliness of the buildings.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We've got a pretty average mix. You can easily tell which cliques certain people fit into by the way they dress, act, etc.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wish I would have looked into other schools more before choosing to go here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: DSU is okay. It will take me a lot longer to graduate than I thought, which will become expensive. However, DSU is respected for its technology courses/majors and for its education program.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: DSU is nationally known for its technology majors. Those who graduate with one of these degrees has a great outlook for careers. DSU is also locally respected for its education program.

Health & Safety: There is no health center on campus. If students need to go into Madison's clinic, they are given three free visits with their tuition. This is convenient right now because the clinic and hospital are right next to campus. However, a new hospital is being built farther away from campus, which will take the convenience out of the situation.

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

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.

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.
