3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: My dorm room was smaller than the rest and they put four people in there which lead to over crowing and that was a factor of why I fell off my bed. Peterson was the best because of the rooms and private showers. My living community was great, the RA was fun and planned a lot of events for everyone and the social atmosphere was comfortable and open. The dorms were also close to the class buildings which was very convenient and nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I found the quality of some courses to be poor. In one we didn't do anything related to the topic and I felt like I lost a lot of money for the class and the books. Some I felt unprepared and that there were gaps in the material and homework, or that the pace was ridiculously fast and overwhelming to the point I couldn't finish the materials.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe that a degree from this school will help get me a job or internship based on the prestige the school caries.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I like that I can have a member of campus security escort me if I don't feel safe, I also liked that the school offered a self defense class.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most team performances were good, but I think most of the varsity sports lacked in school spirit. The facilities are fantastic.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great atmosphere and courses, but some professors are difficult to follow/understand and help isn't advertised as much.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are only a hand few of professors that students actually 'want'. A lot of the professors are foreign and hard to understand or have extremely difficult course loads.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of the degree that I'll get is top notch. When companies look at us they compare us to Harvard and MIT grads.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: My school doesn't really have a major issue with sexual assualt.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I was in the newest dorm building my first year so I would say I got the better part of the deal compared to other students that were staying in the older dormitories.

5 College Senior

Greek Life: I joined a fraternity my freshman year at my school and I absolutely love it. It's the only reason I am still at my school. It provides me with my own support network and a family away from my family.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Again, my school is fairly small. The students that are there are extremely introverted and are simply their to get their degree. The sports on campus aren't that popular but the athletes still walk around like they own the place.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is that even though it is small in enrollment (about 300 students), it is still one of the top engineering schools in the nation. If I could do it all over again I don't think I would go back to my school. It truly isn't what I was looking for in a college.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek system is available on campus, but not a huge deal. Greek activities are not as elite as on other campuses.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Being an Engineering and Geology based school, athletics are not as high of a priority as in many other schools. The teams are competitive in their leagues and are fun to watch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: SDSMT is the ideal small school for students who don't want to get lost in the shuffle of a large university. The professors know you by name and the class sizes are small. I feel accepted and like I belong.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't do drugs and I haven't had problems.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some courses you will love and some you will absolutely hate. But from what I can tell, if you put in the time and effort, you will definitely be satisfied with what you learned.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school has provided me with a job before I graduated. I am currently getting paid as if I were working full time without having to put in the hours.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe. I personally don't like walking by myself in the dark.... but who does?

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is active within the campus community and also the community off campus. They work hard to maintain a professional, respectable profile and help with events to bring people together.

3 College Junior

Athletics: At Mines, the students are committed to academics and sometimes that leaves less time to commit to practice. I am a track athlete at SD Mines and the coaches are understanding about our busy schedules.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: SD Mines is a small school where the professors get to really know the students they are teaching. There are numerous opportunities to learn through the various CAMP teams.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really love this school. The small class room sizes allow for a more personal relationship with classmates as well as professors. The only evasive thing I have to point out is the female to male ratio. Over the years it has increased and I hope it continues to do so.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are HARD! but you can be sure you are going to be ready for what's to come...lots of support form teachers, advisers and others.
