4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Its a great school with awesome people and a safe, community feel. I truly love this school.

Overall Experience: South Dakota State University has an excellent Pre-Med program which is the perfect set up for me to get accepted into Medical School. The people I have met are wonderful and I've made greater friends in one year of college than I did all through high school. The school is very family oriented being that it is in the Midwest. People are a lot more down to earth.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SDSU was the only school that I considered when I was finishing up high school. For your first semester the school does a ton of different things to make this university feel like a second home to the students. After maybe a month of attending school here me and my roommate started calling our dorm home whenever it was brought up in a conversation, even though we lived only 40 minutes away we didn't go home very often because there was enough to do on campus. The students here for the most part are accepting of whatever you are into and make it very easy to make friends with the same interests. I lived in jackrabbit village which is extremely nice and has a great community feel to it, I would recommened Thorne hall to anyone. The professors here really vary between course, some have a great passion about getting the topic across to students, others could care less. Food here is ok, lots of options but it all starts to seem the same after a while. Also the c-store in larson is amazing to have if you want to make something. The one thing I hate about SDSU is after you are done with the first semester it seems like they quit caring about you and only care about your money.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love SDSU support. I am an online/distance student, and when I had trouble getting hold of a textbook I needed for a class the campus library not only lent me the book but sent it to my home with no cost, and even copied and emailed me the few pages I needed to use while my book was shipping.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: South Dakota State University isn't too bad of a place. There are a wide variety of majors to choose from, ranging from pharmacy to engineering and beyond. People around campus, both faculty and students, are all pretty nice and easy to talk to. The campus itself is nice, as it has had consistent additions for the past few years. The professors are pretty average in general, but every once in a while you'll find one that'll do a really fantastic job in helping their students understand the material. The location of SDSU isn't the greatest if one isn't comfortable with small towns. There isn't a ton to do, but the people help make up for it. The biggest downside of attending SDSU would have to be the weather. In the winter it can drop to -40F with windchill, and it's almost always windy regardless of the month. In general I would have to say that SDSU is an alright school. Nothing amazing, but it's definitely doable.

Overall Experience: The school is large enough that there are many opportunities to try new things, but small enough that each student is trested as an individual.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love all of the different opportunities at my school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have no say about Greeks, because I am not one or have tried to be one.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene at my school would be considered average.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food options are not very good, because of the options. You have to go to Panda at a certain time of the day to get good quality food, Pita doesn't have a lot of selections for people who like plain food, Eisenstein's has no gluten free options, and Weary's serves cold food and takes too long to be made!

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of campus housing is too much for bathrooms that don't are gross, the showers do not always have warm water, the heater is old and have no control over it, and there isn't a couple washers and dryers on every floor.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is great, because there're more options to choose from.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus strictness is average, nothing to great, nothing to bad.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got not enough financial aid and have to struggle to find the money or else I can't go back to school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have a great health facility and places to go to and get safety help around campus.

5 College Freshman

4 College Freshman
