I like how close the community is to the college.

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

Find a college that you like and not one that your friends or others pressure you into going. Don't just go to a college just because all of your friends are going to.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

There is nothing that I needed to know. I was well informed when I came to orientation.

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

Visit each college you are considering and go with your gut instinct. Most likely that will be the place you will be most comfortable and happy. Spend a weekend there and see the social life as well. You wouldn't want to be bored and hate your life every weekend. Choose a college that is the size you are looking for.

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

I would have to say before you are going to attend college, have an idea of what you really want to do as a career when you are older. It will help you figure out which type of school you will want to attend and help you look for the schools that have that program. Then you can figure out which school has the best outlook for your intrested field and can find means of getting the money to attend. The more you get to know the school the more easier it will be to adjust and know how to get the best experience.

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

Don't go home on the weekends for the first month or month and a half of school. As a 'retired' R.A. (Resident Assistants) the students that refrain from going home get the most of out their college career. Students who tend to go home the first month do not meet as many close friends and tend to continue to go home weekend after weekend. Although there might not be much to do on some campuses on the weekend, you can find things to do and each experience that you have with your new friends is something that will stick with you for forever.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who attend this school are people that really need to be accepting of the agricultural community. There is a big emphasis in agricultural majors, as well as the health care field (pharmacy, nursing, health promotion).

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person that wants to be in a city with lots of things to do all the time. Someone who wants a strict major in Business or Elementary Education as this school doesn't offer these program currently.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

South Dakota State University is known for there slogan,"You can go anywhere from here." And to me ti believe that to the core, and it does just that, we can go anywhere and that is why i came here.

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

Take the time to find the right school for yourself is ann easy one, all you have to do is make the choice of finding a major that would best fit your life, and then would you like a tough school to go to like a college or a tech school. So depending on what the needs to life style is that is how finding a school would be found. For the college experience find some buddies in your dorm and hang out, study, workout, and just get to know them as much as you can for that they will be the best friends for the rest of your lives!

One unique thing about SDSU is that it is an Agriculture based school so I got a real taste of the midwest when I came here!

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

Many people believe that your high school days are the best days of your life. I truly believe that your college days are the finest days you will experience because you are finally independent, build friendships from scratch, and discover who you truly are. This is why you must find the right fit for you. The right fit is not where all your friends are going or where your parents have wanted you to go since birth. It is a place that you will feel "home" away from home at. A place that will allow you to succeed and in return you will hold a special spot in your heart for it for years to come. A place that will give you room to grow as an individual and make your OWN mark in this world. A place that will suit your needs as far as weather and social activity, and lastly a place that you like and can see youself being successful at.

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

I would tell other students to not rely on advisors because most of the time they waist your time; the best way to go about knowing the classes that you need and what is best is to talk to people whith the same major and same work field.Work less in order to get more financial aid money while in school.

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

The worst thing about my school is the quality of some dorms are somewhat poor.I also don't like how finacial aid is awarded but i have been told that it's not the university's fault.I also don't like the cold.I find the advisors waist your time; most of them don't tell you exactly the right classes that you need to take.
