What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved going to SDSU. The staff was very helpful and they helped make sure that each student would achieve their dreams of becoming what they went to school for. The resources where there to be found and the study help was useful. The class sizes could be too big sometimes and some students didn't seem to care to go to class. Overall, the school was enjoying to go too and to get a degree.

SDSU is a definitely a great school with a beautiful campus. The teachers really want students to do well in their classes and during their office hours they are willing to help you. You will find a lot of the same people in all your classes so getting to know them will be worthwhile.

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

Choose a college of your choice. I went to a school that I thought I would like because my friends go there, but ended up hating it and now I'm transfering. Plus if you want to go out into the world and get out of that "hometown" feeling, then I recommend going to a big school. More people, more fun, more opportunities, and more things to do. Seriously.

What kind of person should attend this school?

people who don't like big schools

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Since South Dakota State University is a landgrant college, some of the aspects it is best known for is the pride we take in our agricultural college. It has great opportunities for students to keep up with and learn more about what we love and may have grown up with. We are also well known for our professional college. SDSU offers many fields that ready our students for professional school after undergrad. One last big aspect SDSU is known for is the opportunities it offers. Know matter what you are interested in, there is always a place for everyone.

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

I have a lot of advice about college for my high school self. One tip would be to learn good study habits now. Because with all the extracurriculars campus has to offer, one has to be disciplined enough to know when, how much, and for how long they need to study. It is easy to get caught up in the fun of organizations, but you have to remember that academics is the sole purpose of college. My second piece of advice would be to get involved right away. College is a place that I personally came out of my shell, and It happened when I started joining clubs and other organizations. It will benefit you during and after your college experience. A third piece of advice is to find a nice place on campus, other than your residence hall, to study. Get in the habit of being our of the room from 9-5 each day. Beter to get into this habit now then when you enter the work force afte graduation. My last piece of advice, would be to remember to have fun. Studying is important, but college is only a four year experience until the real world hits.

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

I believe the worst thing about my school is the food served and the availability of it. There is not very many places on campus that serve healthy food. The places that do serve healthier food don't have very good hours. But for the people who truely wish to eat healthier, you have to make it yourself, which isn't always a bad thing, but it would be helpful to be able to go out and purchase a healthy meal.

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

I would have to say that it is something I should have thought more about, and I wish i would have spent more time finding out what I wanted to do after high school. I also would say to not let un needed things distract you from what you are going to do. You need to focus on yourself and start to make decsions on your own. Graduating high school and going in to college is a very important part of your life.

What's unique about your campus?

I think the teachers are really great. They make you do your work and push you to do your best. They are there when you need help.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The atmosphere and some of the kids there. Some of them are very disrespectful to others and teachers.
