Black Hills State University Reviews
Review Black Hills State University
I am going to be enrolled at BHSU next fall. I found out about the University when researching colleges in mountainous areas of the US; I am a huge fan of rocky areas with beautiful scenery. I was recruited to play basketball, and this opportunity allowed me to visit the campus a few times. I met some staff members and they all came off as wonderful people with a passion for success. The facilities are top notch, too. I visited quite a few places, and none compared to BHSU. To top it off, there is no such thing as a boring day in the Black Hills. A 5 minute walk puts you in the midst of the canyon. I love it out in Spearfish!
This school is an excellent choice for students who desire to major in Education! The courses are very informative and applicable to what you will see in the field. All of the professors and staff are more than willing to answer any questions and they are very knowledgeable in education. I am completely happy with my decision to enroll here!
Spearfish is a wonderful community nestled in the Black Hills. Residents and BHSU students have the opportunity to explore the hills in many different ways whether that's hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, snow mobiling, climbing, and many others. There is an array of good natured adventure surrounding this university! The campus does a fairly good job at providing activities on campus and a handful of active campus organizations to help you get involved. there are plenty of restaurants and a few local activities such as bowling alley, movie theater, and black hills theatre. Not to mention spearfish is only 35 miles to a much larger city!
