USD has wonderful teachers. So far, I've had a very positive experience with all my teachers. The dorms are pretty standard and could stand some renovations especially in North Complex. The fine arts building is also in need of repairs. Slagle aka Aalfs auditorium is beautiful .
I attend at the Rapid City Campus. The class size is small so you get more one on one time. The cost of attendance is more reasonable than other colleges/universities.
The small campus brings a lot of family environment around. The town is a everyone knows everyone type of place so it makes the experience even better. The love you will receive from everyone you would think the people are related to you. The football games bring the whole town together!

The University of South Dakota, despite being a state school, has some caring professors and academic advisors. They don't only encourage graduating, but graduating early and in what you love. However, not all are like this. They attempt to give everyone something to do, yet there are so many people who cannot find anything to do.
The University of South Dakota provides great diversity to its students--whether that diversity be in campus events, housing, or academics. There is something for every student at USD, no matter their background or interests.
Exciting atmosphere to be around and there are many opportunities to get involved and meet new people.
I think the University of South Dakota is a great school to go to. They have numerous involvement opportunities for students to sign up for and they make sure to always have something going on each day.
The college is excellent for those who want to go into science or medicine. It's located in a small town (with not a whole lot to do), and the campus is fairly large. I've had a fairly good experience with USD, having only been here a single semester. The faculty is incredible and the majority of the students are also nice.
People on and off campus are very friendly and humble. Even though the campus is very small, it is easier to walk from place to place especially when you do not have a car and you're from out of state.
I do wish there were a variety of places to go to for hangouts and entertainment.
Overall, I think the campus is really nice and affordable school to attend to.
I believe my professors and academic advisers have very well prepared me for success. There are many academic support systems on campus that can be utilized. I feel as though all professors I have met really care about their education as well as mine. Some of the buildings are older and need updating, but overall the school is really great. They do have too much emphasis on athletics.
I've attended the University of South Dakota for 2 years now and I absolutely love it here. USD professors and advisors genuinely want students to do well and will go above and beyond to support you in doing so. Very understanding, professors engage students and are always available to help. I can't recall ever having a bad or even lacklustre professor, all of them (even SI instructors, TAs, and grad school professors) have been incredible. Highly recommend!
As an online student, my experiences in the university are very limited compared to students living on campus.
I like that there are so many different meal options rather than having to eat the same thing day after day. I also like that USD puts on events frequently to keep students involved. One thing that I don't like is that printing isn't free.
I am a sophomore at USD and I really enjoy going here. It may be in a small town, but USD puts on many events for anyone to do so you always have something to do.
I attend the University of South Dakota through the University Center. It is wonderful, the online classes have great professors and I am getting a lot out of my education! I cannot wait to finish my degree and join the work force as a nurse and be completely prepared.
The University of South Dakota is a good school if you like a small-town vibe. The downtown scene is great, the town is situated right next to a major river, and is only a half hour from a bigger city, and 45 minutes from the biggest city in South Dakota. They have great programs, although I wish they'd offer more classes in certain subjects. The dorms, for the most part, are kept well and there is a variety of options for off campus housing.
The University of South Dakota was one of my top choices when applying to colleges, hence the reason I am here today. The campus here is great, it is not too big so you do not have too far to walk to class. Everything is within walking distance if you are living on campus. The food is great, and you also have many fast food type options as well. The professors are phenomenal, they are willing to do whatever they can to help you in their class. They are easy to talk to and give great instructions.

I really enjoy the town of Vermillion and the home atmosphere it gives you. The best part about USD is the town and the people that reside here. It is a small school and a small town, yes, but both of those factors help to make it feel so comfortable here. I have made so many amazing connections through USD to the town, and I have had some awesome opportunities because of it.
A very good school, small classes and great professors! I wish there was more diversity on campus, but it obvious the University is making a step in that direction with cultural days and speeches.
I am currently enrolled to the University of South Dakota where I will be starting classes in the fall of 2018. In December of 2017 I took a tour of the college with my family and instantly fell in love with campus and its atmosphere. My mother went to the University of South Dakota when she was younger and always tells me how much fun she had and how many great memories she made. I can't wait to make those memories too, and share them with my future family.
