South Dakota State University has faculty and staff that work hard to help you find the area of interest for each student while helping the students be successful. There are many different organizations, clubs, and intramurals for students to get involved in, meet friends and make many memories.
The weather can be very beautiful just be prepared for all four seasons.
I attend the SDSU Rapid City campus. I am thankful that this campus is offered because it would not have been feasible for me to attend the main campus in Brookings, SD. This program is great and the clinical experiences provided to us are wonderful and thorough. I feel this program is doing an excellent job of preparing us to graduate and be out nursing on our own.
I wish that there was more access to dorm rooms and housing in Rapid City, SD for their program. It would be nice if they had a building that students could apply for and live in.
There are good professors and bad professors. The Physics Professor is not a good professor. He is smart but he isn't good at teaching. The other classes I've taken so far are okay. The Dynamics professor isn't great as well. If you were to come here, I'd recommend trying at least Physics and Dynamics at other universities.
The dynamics and physics professors both aren't great. It's hard to get access to campus food on the weekend, laundry does cost you money, and, unless you live in Honors, the dorms are not very good.
I'm an online student. Tuition cost is good and professors are knowledgeable.
Lack of tunnels or skywalks to get from building to building in cold weather.
I loved the size of the campus and the environment of support offered. Overall, I had a very good experience with my teachers and they wanted me to succeed. They had opportunities for everyone to get involved.
During finals week, it is hard to get food. They are however getting new dining options that may offer different hours.
My favorite part about SDSU was meeting people through clubs and organizations. In fact, that is how I made my current friend group. Getting into clubs with diverse people really helped me find people that I genuinely get along with. I think it is a truly underrated experience, but in a university that lacks much diversity, the small group of students I met changed my life and how I viewed the world.
The food options at SDSU are subpar and promote poor eating habits. They are so limited that you have nothing to eat but noodles and greasy chicken for half the year. This is supposed to change next year, however. The dorms were likely to average for a university of this caliber, but there are few accommodations for people with specific needs, whether it be social, or mental. I also think the school could promote genuine diversity more rather than faking it.
