4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've enjoyed SDSU so far. Had a lot of great professors!

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: There's been a few professors I haven't really liked but your not going to be okay with every single professor so you just do your best. I wish there was more beef classes offered and maybe more hands on when it came to labs.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Overall, the SDSU campus cares about student career prospects and helps us as students to do our best so that when we graduate, we know the direction we want our career to go.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I lived in Pierson Hall my first two years of SDSU and I really enjoyed the social environment, but I didn't like the only kitchen downstairs because when you live on the third floor, that's a lot of stairs and sometimes not worth the hassle.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I don't have much experience with the Greek life other than knowing a few people who have joined a fraternity or sorority.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I haven't had a lot of involvement with the athletic department other than intramurals on campus and a few football games, but the school spirit seems to be pretty good compared to other schools.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I like the small town feel of campus and being able to walk where I need to go for classes and not be too worried if I'll have time or not. South Dakota State University feels a lot like home because of the people that go there and the faculty that makes up the university. I didn't feel overwhelmed when I first started and made friends and memories that I will cherish forever.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes and professors are both fair. I tried an online class but I really didn't like it. SDSU provides a wide variety of classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a variety of opportunities on campus for help finding different internships and summer jobs in your career.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We get alerts about sexual assault when it happens. It is alarming how much it really does occur. I usually feel pretty safe walking around on campus during the day but do not like to be alone at night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life is exactly what I expected. Living with a roommate isn't wonderful but also not as bad as I expected.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't think that people who are involved in greek life or not have any indifference towards each other.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone on campus loves being a part of the athletics on campus. Most of the students come out to support our teams and be a part of the atmosphere.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: South Dakota State University has an amazing atmosphere. All of the students are fulfilled academically and socially. We have an amazing array of activities and sports to attend on campus. My favorite activity is the marching band, The Pride of The Dakotas. I love being involved and feeling like I am a part of the school.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is an email warning system in place when something happens that may affect our safety.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I rectently saw a ranking of the SDSU nursing school as one of the top 30 in the nation.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I don't know much about the Greek life. I'm Norwegian

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: University police department monitor the campus excellent. personally, it seems like a UPD patrol car is always circling parking lots and other parts of campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: i would recommend searching for internships as soon as possible; it can be difficult to be chosen for the position. plus, the internship process can take over two weeks. furthermore, do not put all your eggs in one basket because it could just be a waist of your time.

Campus Housing: i had a difficult time finding a house or an apartment when i moved back to Brookings. however, residential housing faculty was able to place me into upper class-men housing within a day of asking and helped me a permeant place for the semester. also, i'm currently living on campus during the summer, which they also helped me get into. plus financial aid faculty gave me the greatest service and advise to get me in a place on campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: i personally find it difficult to find a fraternity that fits my entrepreneurial studies major.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: i wish there were more information available to students about getting involved with the athletes and the facilities.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My overall experience at South Dakota State University has been excellent. SDSU is unique due to the smaller size of the student's that attend; professors are able to focus on individual's success. However, winter's in South Dakota would be one of the only reasons i might of chose a different school (probably a school in the south). Overall though, South Dakota State University is the best college in South Dakota; USD can't even compare to us.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I am very happy with my online course. The desire2learn is easy to use and the course is easy to follow. I would definitely choose SDSU again because I like the rolling enrollment and everyone is so helpful

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Surely alcohol does impact the safety of our campus but otherwise students do not have to be afraid of radical people just randomly shooting people.
