The University of Sioux Falls has developed a strong community within and has developed many opportunities to become involved and create relationships. Just like most colleges and universities, USF has well established education program, but with small class sizes and very interactive professors, the atmosphere of classes is incomparable. An area for improvement is the situation of classes only being offered a select number of times. One solution to this problem is to create reciprocity with other smaller schools that have the same dilemma. Class schedules could be combined for maximum efficiency for their students. Overall, the experience at the University of Sioux Falls is wonderful.

My two semesters at the University of Sioux Falls was a great experience. It is a private school, so the classes were smaller and students participated more. The professors were super helpful at all times. Most of the students were super nice and outgoing.
The only down fall I found during my time is that when it comes to sports people, they were given the best treatment. Which, to an extent is understandable. I wish there could be change in some of the atmosphere because some of the students had their cliques and were not very welcoming.
I loved my experience at the University of Sioux Falls. The small class sizes made it easy to get to to know my classmates, my professors, and ask any questions that I had. The campus size is small, which was also great. My longest walks were only ever 5 minutes- and that was when I was not able to find a parking spot in the parking lot too! The activities that the school put on for the students were great. There was always something fun going on at campus a couple nights a week. Whether it was a sporting event or a gathering with snacks to meet up with friends or meet new people, there was always something to do.
