3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the buildings are old and aren't in the greatest conditions but they're able to withstand the winter and provide the space we need to live while were attending school. Overall they're okay but you make a lot of friends within the dorms

4 College Junior

Athletics: Northern has a great fan base for most of its athletic teams and the school has great school spirit in supporting our team. The team performance has been shakey but the athletes are doing their best and doing great.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experience at Northern so far has been a rollercoaster. Trying to find the right career path for me has been tough but the professors have been wonderful and very helpful. Meeting new people is easy and every one gets a long. It's been great and I'm glad I chose this school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I feel like we pay quite a bit for housing for what we get. Most of the dorms are really old and out of date, they dont have air conditioning. theyre also extremely small.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As for being freshman I'm still really new to this whole thing, its very nice coming from a tiny town. Its a small campus with a big campus feel.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe walking around campus during the night. I am not worried about anything and there is nothing to worry about.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a lot fun here and cant wait for the rest of this semester and the rest to come!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone on campus has been helpful and made it a lot better.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms is where I meant all my friends. It so nice having all the freshman in one dorm and getting to know all of them.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The school is all about it sports. Both basketball teams lead the nation in attendance. All sports get very well supported by the town and most importantly the students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are helpful and love doing one on one work with a student. Willing to help out each and every student.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus. Our campus police officer is wiling to walk you wherever you need to go on campus when it's dark. The campus is small so you never have to walk far to get from one place to another.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes and how major-specific class sections tend to be. Some professors tend to just read off their slideshow and not give you much more insight but others are willing to go the extra mile to make sure you understood the material.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: From what I know, we do a lot with trying to recruit alumni to support the school. I think we have a lot of alumni that work on campus or outside of campus bringing new students in.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I loved living in Jerde hall my freshman year, you got to know the class you'd be graduating with and experienced college with everyone else who was in their first year.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Fan support is not always the best, but when the students get together for homecoming the school pride really shines. Everyone on campus is very friendly and when future students visit campus everyone takes time out of their day to show them around. Our athletic facility (the Barnett Center) was recently updated and is made to accommodate everyone's needs.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Northern State was an ideal place to receive my undergraduate degree. The professors and upperclassmen were extremely helpful and willing to lend a hand where need be. The campus is small so it is easy to learn your way around. The people in the town are extremely caring and sweet.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The school has several resources to help you excel and it's easy to see that the staff love their job. Northern State is very much tied in with its community which gives you a great sense of pride and the school environment provides several opportunities to branch out and meet new people through clubs and events on and off campus

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere at Northern is great! It is a small community in itself and people genuinely get to know you. Plus, the Aberdeen community is very supportive of the school and wants to see it succeed

4 College Freshman

Administration: everything is great. some of the RAs can be a bit too strict. there were a few times where one of the RAs closed the 3rd floor bathroom for 24hrs each time. the offenses weren't that big and shouldn't have been carried out that way with that punishment.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: health and safety on our campus is very supportive and helpful

Athletics: we are very involved with sports and we support or teams all the time.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties but I hear about the ones my friends go to and they say that they're fun but they get busted really quick sometimes.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: its great, there are lots of choices to pick from but past 10pm, when people are getting off work or getting their late night cravings, there are basically no places to eat because everything closes around that time.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: the school offers a wolf pact scholarship which is great. it is automatically given to new freshman with ACT of 21 or higher or the SAT equivalent to a 21. the other scholarships weren't that helpful. they are only for south Dakota residents or native American students.
