University of South Dakota Graduate Reviews

7 reviews
The campus is very nice and is well maintained. It’s easy to find your way around if you’re unfamiliar. The class sizes are smaller, which is nice to be able to get to know your professors and other students. Unfortunately, the administration of the University seems extremely disorganized. Financial aid doesn’t get to you in a timely manner. When you call, nobody can give you a straight answer to why things are taking so long. If you turn in any sort of administrative form, it takes months before anybody addresses it.

Being from a small southern California border town with Mexican roots
raised in both a Mexican and U.S. environment, coming to the MidWest, I certainly experienced the difference in culture. Despite being nervous and suffering from culture shock, I became well-adjusted. I have never experienced support, pride and love for their own school as I have seen at USD. The spirit and love is 100% contagious at every turn! GO YOTES!!
I enjoyed some of the professors and appreciated the various placement opportunities. Unfortunately, the town is very small and the university is fairly conservative.
