The community college that I went to before hand had straws for the drinks in the cafeteria and warm water in the bathrooms. The disapointment carries through in all aspect very similarly. It always feels crowded.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The South Dakota School of Mines and Tech is a great place for those who want to pursue science and engineering fields and want opportunity for professional growth. The class sizes are small enough to be comfortable enough to ask questions in class and the professors are glad to answer. The surrounding area does not offer much to do, but the campus sometimes makes up for it. Academics are challenging but doable. Students are encouraged in their professional growth through internships, co-ops, and the many research opportunities on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just as any school the South Dakota School of Mines has its struggles from time to time. However, overall this school is incredible supportive and the students are nearly always willing to encourage one another. Being such a small campus creates a family-like feel that has been a true blessing for me over the years. The civil engineering department is a true gem on campus. They are willing to go above and beyond for their students.

I really enjoy school of Mines it has a reputation for being a quality school. It definitely is the place to be in South Dakota. It has a very tight knit family of students and really tries to make you feel at home. I would recommend school of mines to any engineering majors out there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thoroughly enjoy attending school here. As a female at an engineering school, one might think it may be difficult to be noticed or get the help you need, but honestly, this school has a paramount of opportunities for women on campus and does a fantastic job integrating us and giving us the same opportunities as our male counterparts. Everyone, faculty and students included, are all very friendly, kind, and willing to lend a hand with anything they can. A great community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a school that boldly lives up to it's claims and holds high standards in order to do so. Students attend this school in order to receive a high quality education, and they get exactly what they ask for. During the week, business is very strict and students work hard, however whenever they are presented with an opportunity to relax, they seize it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I never imagined that I could discover a college that met all my dreams and offered every opportunity on my checklist ranging from an outstanding engineering program to a growing athletic program and intellectual diversity. During my volleyball recruiting visit, I remember learning about the traditions and challenging projects that not only confirmed everything I loved about South Dakota School of Mines, but also helped me see the collaborative platform that has built the backbone of this school. Since first stepping on campus I knew that South Dakota school of Mines was an academically challenging environment. I have always wanted to attend a demanding university that offers hands-on real-world projects with small groups and SDSM offers that opportunity. I know that South Dakota School of Mines is a team-oriented environment where the professors want the students to succeed and as a student athlete I value the small class sizes and the ability to easily communicate with my professors. I was instantly interested in attending mines when I learned about the internship program that has allowed 75% of all its students to earn at least one paid internship from 240 different employers. Although South Dakota School of Mines is most appealing due to its academics, I also found the student life to be very rewarding. As a Hardrocker, I would be involved in campus concerts, intramural sports, school homecoming traditions, and student clubs. The outstanding opportunities offered at the school also play a big part with the community in Rapid City, South Dakota. Downtown Rapid is loaded with restaurants, entertainment, and cafes perfect for college students. Through all of this, I realized that South Dakota School of Mines was the place I wanted to spend the next four years of my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is a hard school where every student needs to put in the time and effort to succeed. The ratio of girls to guys sucks as it is 4 guys to 1 girl. There is a verity of engineering and science majors on campus and the school encourages students to get involved in clubs and the community. All the faculty and professors are nice and always willing to help. South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is an excellent STEM school that is surprisingly affordable in cost; tuition for out of state is about $24,000 a year. If you want to go into engineering I would recommend coming to South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the atmosphere and environment of South Dakota School of Mines. The class sizes are comparable to those of a typical high school, which is great for asking questions and helping to actual learn in class. Since it is an engineering school the classes are harder than your typical college, however, this is to better prepare the students for there future careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school. There's plenty of different activities and clubs to get involved with. Everyone is easy to make friends with, and everyone has similar mind sets. The food is better than most colleges, and housing is what can be expected. I plan on graduating from here with a Bachelor's, and possibly a Master's
