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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Quality of the knowledge thought.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. Never heard of anything getting stolen on campus. If you leave something somewhere on accident you will find it where you left it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are science and math based, not many other classes are offered, but also not needed. The professors are okay, usually bad at getting homework graded in a timely manner required for feedback. Still waiting for the midterm project grades for two classes and the semester is almost over. Class sizes are generally small which is nice.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The career fair was good in the fall, but very small in the spring. Most students seem to get an internship before graduating which is nice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay. They just built new housing for sophomores, but now instead of sophomores getting apartment style housing, we have dorm-style again, mostly doubles, which means sharing a room again. Most 19/20 year olds are fine with roommates, but want their OWN ROOM. Also, there is only 2 kitchens for 6 floors of residents, and since the food here isn't spectacular and I was planning on cooking most of my own meals next year, this makes my life much more difficult.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about the greek life, I wasn't very interested in it and didn't hear anything spectacular about it.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Football is probably the most attended sporting event but still not many students go. Other sports such as soccer are even less attended. Mostly just friends of the team attend. The facilities are newly updated which is nice, but the workout area is designed somewhat poorly and can become easily crowded in the weight area.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is good for its money. It's cheap so you get a good bang for your buck. There's lots of good people here but the teachers aren't always great. They are smart people but not necessarily the best at teaching. The school doesn't always seem to listen to what students want, and as a student athlete, athletes aren't really given anything for representing the school positively. I'm confident that I will find a job after graduation, but until then I will have to work extremely hard to teach myself things that the teachers don't necessarily explain.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not that many students here are bid into sports. However a majority of the students I know use the gym and weight room almost daily.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far the overall experience has been very good.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Being an engineering school, athletics are often overshadowed by the academic rigors of the university. However, there are apple opportunities to attend events and get involved in intramurals, and many of the students do take advantage of this.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'd choose this school over any other if I could do it all again. The professors are excellent and the students are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand. The campus is rather introverted bUt there is a definite sense of community stemming from everyone's involvement in difficult fields of study and mutual desire for success.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: There is a moderate to high use of alcohol and drug use at this school. However, peer pressure does not really play a part. If you choose to not partake you will not lose your friends or be made fun of. People are accepting of other peoples choices and that includes the choice to not partake in these activities. I do not personally partake and am still well known on campus. The policy enforcement in the dorms is very strict and taken seriously.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: The school has students who take academics very seriously. There are very few parties around. Transportation around rapid city is very easy. The bar/club scene is picking up. There are a couple of bars downtown and a new nightclub on the weekends. w

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are very few parties on this campus. The few that do happen tend to be fun but crowded.

4 College Junior

Diversity: The campus as a while is pretty accepting of diversity. There is a office for people who are considered a diversity to connect and talk with others or get help if needed.

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics are hard but worth it. The curriculum is pretty set for all majors and the registration for classes is easy. The workload can be either a lot or medium depending on how many credits you are taking for a specific semester. The professors are extremely helpful and want you to succeed.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is a very low crime rate on campus. Walking around campus at night I feel safe. To get into the buildings at night you need a student ID which makes me feel safe when I am up late studying. Campus safety is great and always available. They will give rides to cars at night if ever you feel unsafe also.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall experience has been great! The class sizes are small and teachers are available and willing to help whenever. There are a lot of different classes offered until you get more into your major specific classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The career opportunities at this school are great! There is a 98% placement rate. This means that majority of the students graduate with a job offer. There is a career fair every semester which allows for students to get an internship/co-op/job very easily. We have over 200 well known companies come to recruit from our school as Mines graduates are highly sought after. The career center is also an amazing resource and will jump through hoops to help any student find a job or review resumes. We also have a program called Mines Advantage that our employers know about and allow our students to get jobs.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are a fantastic aspect to campus life at this school. The cost is relatively low and allows you to make friends easily. The learning communities within the dorms also assure you make friends interested in the same things that you are. It is also nice to live in the dorms freshman year because they are so close to all the buildings on campus. As a sophomore you live in Rocker Square which is an apartment style living and is super nice and still on campus!

5 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is very evident on campus even though there is not that many houses present. There are two sororities, four fraternities and a coed fraternity. The greeks do a lot of community service for the school and community and a lot of them are leaders within their houses and throughout campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The students do their best to attend when not studying. There is a new pep club on campus to promote students attending sporting events. They host tailgating before every home football game and make t-shirts for the students to wear. School spirit is pretty high and students are proud to call SDSM&T their home team. There was recently a new weight room, small activity room, two gyms, and a bouldering wall added to the gym.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is close knit and very academic focused. I have enjoyed being a leader on campus and getting to know majority of the undergrad students on campus. However, academics come first and it is evident in the staffs willingness to help and make sure you pass. It is also nice to have small class sizes to get to know people in your specific major.
