What is your overall opinion of this school?

BH is a really nice, smaller university. It's small enough that everyone kind of knows each other, but big enough that there is diversity among the students and staff.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Our Art, Photography, Teaching and Business departments are strongest. We are sponsored by Canon so photo students have Canon lenses and printers available to them. The teaching department prepares excellent teachers, students are estimated to have a job 6 months before they graduate. While we have many classes, the Graphic Design department is a bit week. The school is pretty small as well surrounded by a small city. There's many outdoor activities to do but not much aside from that. The school hosts some cool events but I definitely think there's room for improvement, students aren't really engaged with on-campus activities the way most are.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have really enjoyed my stay at black hills state university so far. The dorms are great. Something that puts BHSU on top of other schools is the fact that we have sinks in our dorms. It's amazing. There's a lot to do at BH on the weekends other than partying like other schools, there are so many hikes, sports events, and other outdoor activities. It's a fun school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have loved living at Black Hills State and attending the college. The professors are very knowledgeable in the subjects they teach and are usually open to questions in and out of the classroom. I have also loved the classes in the Business Administration business core. Especially managerial communications with Dr. B. Looney.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love BHSU. It is a small college which makes it great to make new friends and the class sizes aren't huge which I love because you get to know your professors and classmates better. It's also surrounded by tons of stuff to do like hiking and you are a short drive to Rapid City. It's a great community and you will feel right at home in the oddest places such as a big football or basketball game because we all come together to support our teams which is always fun. Overall BHSU is great and I don't regret my decision to go there at all it's been a wonderful experience this far.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Black Hills State is a great place to come and learn. If you are looking for only a good time and flying by, this is not the place for you. The majority of students take their college careers very seriously and are here to learn and get a job right out of college. The professors are helpful and always willing to sit and talk if you have questions of the material, need advice for school or unrelated schools things, or if you don't agree with what grade they gave you on a paper. I couldn't imagine a better school to by at and don't even want to look for other schools, quite frankly, since I have such amazing opportunities here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm a returning student after 20 years in the workforce. After my freshman year at BHSU I transferred to a Tech School and received my Diploma in a field that I have since been working in. Now I am returning to school to further my education, when it was time to make a decision as to what school to attend......there wasn't much of a decision.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I didn't fit in well there as a student and as a result, I transferred to another state school. If your viewpoints differ from Liberal/Democrat views, there will be at least four to five who will tell you that your viewpoints are wrong, especially if you comment on a shirt that has views they don't agree with. They have a variety of food, but I think they need more majors. Its hard to make friends if you have different views for people don't overall agree with the left wing, but you can still make a few friends.

It is very easy to get to know everyone because of the small campus size. It isn't intimidating in any way. Don't be afraid to greet strangers.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My high school self was very dedicated to course work and being involved in the school atmoshpere. After about 7 months, 9 hours later, and one semester down, I would honestly tell my high school self to keep being ambitious, don't feel bad about staying home to study, you know what you want in like with your education so keep pursuing your passion. I would do the same things with my coursework, except high school me should have taken a math class senior year for college credit that way less money would have been spent on fall semester. But I would say I've always been an encouraged indiviual with homework and education and I wouldn't want my high school self to change that at all. The hardwork is well worth the success that has followed me through today in college.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There isn't much diversity. It's a must.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I have been in college for 2 years now and I have received alot of information from people plus I have learned alot myself. If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I'd have alot of insight to give myself. First I would tell myself that making friends should not be my first priority, school should be. High school is alot different from college. In college your classes are first come first serve its not like in high school where they will just put you in a class even if there is no room. You also have to do everything you can to get as much monetary assistance as possible because being in college is not cheap and it is not easy having to come out of pocket to have to pay for your eduaction. With that being said you should not spend all your time partying because if you happen to flunk out of college that's it all your money is gone and you won't be able to go back to that school. That is the best information you can give a high school senior in my opinion.
