I love my school because the people are what make this school amazing. With its Christian values and Top-Notch professors, I have been receiving a quality education for a pretty great price! Not to mention all of the Financial Aid I have received from school and the personalized attention!

Football, Football, Football! Here at USF athletics are a huge part of the buzz around campus. Our football program is definitely the life of our athletics. How our football team does means everything whereas any other sport, nobody honestly cares. But there are a ton of students on scholarships for all sports we offer so if you're not planning on playing football, don't worry. Oh, and we just moved up into the NCAA!

There isn't a whole lot of diversity here, mostly because it's a small, private, Christian college in South Dakota. Racial diversity is there, but it's small. Political beliefs, if you're a democrat you usually have to stay silent, because you're the minority. Same if you're anything besides cisgender and heterosexual or believe people who aren't cisgender or heterosexual should have equal rights and protections under the law. A lot of people here are really religious, and they use that to base their discrimination. This annoys me as a christian who wants equal rights for all, but it has strengthened my views and helps you to see other people's viewpoints so you don't live in a bubble full of people only with your view.
