I like the school. I think that the class sizes are perfect. The professor knows each person name and is always willing to help them. They have office hours all throughout the day and ready to explain any question a student may have. The food is terrible it tastes terrible and there are not very many healthy options. Seventy-five percent of the school is athletes and the facilities are great and accommodating but it would help if the food was better to fuel their bodies. Unlike most schools, this one is not much of a party scene. There are some but there are not very many parties throughout the year. The dorms are amazing. They are as good as they get. It is like living in an apartment. Everything is new and up to date. It is a very safe environment the town that is has a low crime rate and everything about the town makes for a good learning environment. Over all, it is a really good school especially for people who learn in a smaller environment.

Presentation College in Aberdeen, SD as been an overall pleasant experience. The experience will be what you make of it, just like at any other college so you. I would recommend you take the time to make it worth your while. The class sizes are decent, and the professors are respectful and very helpful. The academics are really what make this school stand out from the rest.
I love the smaller class sizes and the professors know you by name and not a number. The interaction between the students and professors is amazing. Since it is a small campus, everyone knows just about everyone that goes here.
