South Dakota State University Reviews
South Dakota State University is a place I have been able to grow and succeed in my college career so far. I believe that a diploma from SDSU is as good as any college in the nation. The professors on campus are ready and willing to help, the clubs are fun and involved, and most of all the campus will make you feel right at home. The people that make up SDSU are top notch and in my opinion there is no place better!
I like that there are a lot of opportunities here. You can find everything from agriculture to theater to nursing to anything science. There are so many wonderful teachers and students to help you along, encourage you, and have fun with you. The nursing program is incredible at SDSU. We have dozens of knowledgeable nurses ready to take care of the world. Our agriculture department is on top of everything. We even have a dairy plant. I study to be an English teacher and I can guarantee I am getting exactly the education needed for me to succeed! Besides education, we have a fully stocked wellness center that is available most times throughout each week. SDSU is also home to Chick fil A, Panda Express, and several other food places that do not disappoint! The campus is clean and beautiful -- especially during the fall season!
I am currently a freshman at South Dakota State University. I have just completed my first semester as a college student and I am absolutely loving it. The people I have met are absolutely wonderful, including the professors. Deciding to attend SDSU was the best choice for me because I have grown as a person in multiple ways!
