This is actually a very small university with about 4000 students including online. The people you meet and the faculty are what makes this school achieve any greatness. They have awesome programs that help the poor and disabled students. If you can get into the Theodore Roosevelt Honors Leadership Program -DO IT! They will give you 3000 a year for four years! The school is realitively affordable, and works tirelessly to provide a safe environment and community. You will fall in love with the heart of Dickinson, I know I did.
Review Dickinson State University
Professors want to see you succeed so they do whatever it takes to pass their class, help you graduate, or advice for certain situations. Registration process is best when your advisor helps you because they want to keep you on tract to graduating instead of taking classes that aren't necessarily going to help the student for their major. There are plenty areas to study around campus rather if it's outside on the grass or inside in the library.
One thing that makes my school unique is the classes are a nice size, which makes the teachers a lot more available to help their students. I would choose this school again because the teachers really care about their students graduating.
