South Dakota State University Graduate Reviews

Professors have been wonderful! Online classes can be hard but with weekly agendas out each week it makes it easy to progress through your own work. In a way it can be very self-paced. You are able to call, email, or zoom meetings with your advisors and professors.

South Dakota State University has an excellent program for students who wish to gain knowledge through research and the workforce. We have a well rounded academic program for anyone who ready to be better. General Studies majors are welcome to apply!
I chose to attend this university for a couple of reasons. They do have some excellent programs and professors, however, there is very little diversity here. If I would have known this prior to starting I probably would have chosen one of my other choices. I moved from a very diverse state and to come to South Dakota and find out how little diversity there is here is really disappointing. The housing is mediocre and the cafeteria is closed for the summer session. I have heard that the university police are not the great, but I have not had any interactions with them. Overall, this university does not do a great job at helping new students get acclimated, especially if you decide to start in the summer like I am. I had to figure out how to register for classes on my own as I have not yet been assigned an advisor. I also had to figure out how to navigate the campus on my own. The campus is really big and spread out, but it is very pretty.
