Great campus it is clean and kept up. Great students friendly easy to get to know. Great staff very knowledgeable, kind and available. The football team is doing well. There are good food choices. There is an ice cream shop on campus that makes its own ice cream. I Love It. The mascot is a jack rabbit. GO JACKS!
I feel like there are a lot of good opportunities in or around campus, the student just has to make the effort to join the clubs and partake in the activates on campus. I know where I am in the biology section of the college I miss my agriculture roots and I do have the chance to still be in touch with agriculture by being on this campus
I decided to join South Dakota State because it has a beautiful campus with a lot of unique and wonderful people. Campus is always lively and there is always something going on for students to do. SDSU is really good at sports and the fans at sports events are always animated. There are lots of opportunities to be successful!
The cheerleading team is good and I am interested in that.

Attend South Dakota State University first! The University of South Dakota is nice but you will gain more friends and experience attending SDSU before USD. Make a study plan so your grades stay high and do not be afraid to say no to a school commitment. Also, take pictures of yourself, friends, and family to school. You will get homesick. Do not be afraid to call home and talk to the parents and call your grandparents on a regular basis. Keep in touch with your brother and sister.

My classmates mainly have farming backgrounds, but there are many foreign students and city kids also.

Any one! There is something here for EVERYONE!!
The most frustrating thing about my school is that some classes are taught by professors that don't speak very good english. Now we all know that this is part of the college experience, but it's hard enough to understand a class like Chemistry when you have a hard time understanding the teacher. On the bright side, these teachers know that their students have a difficult time understanding them, and therefore are always willing to help out students in and out of class.
SDSU is about the right size for and undergraduate program. While there were some classes with 400 students, others only had 15-20. It was nice in the smaller classes to get to know your professors and not be another number.
South Dakota State University is one of the most affordable schools in the U.S. For it's unique price students can recieve a quality education from professors and learning communities who care. The university is also unique for its learning communities, meaning they put you in a community with other students who are studying similar things to you so that you are in almost all of the same classes and it is easier to make study groups.
It takes awhile to walk to some class rooms
I mostly brag about my job and the fact that I live a block away from campus and my rent is extremely cheap. This community is great for jobs for college students as well as off campus affordable housing.
Anyone who likes to be outdoors in the winter will not enjoy SDSU. The weather is extremely cold and windy.
