    There is Sculpture Walk on Campus. Every homecoming, we ride the cougar to protect our large cat-statue from the enemy. In the very beginning of summer months after the snow has first melted, half of the campus takes part in polar plunge - a dive into the freezing cold (but entirely thrilling) pond outside of the Sullivan dorm room.

    Bang for the buck

    When you look at the numbers, this school seems a tad expensive, but it is truly worth every penny. The relationships you will make not only with students but also faculty will follow you all the days of your life. This school truly sets you up for success and promises to remain your foundation even after you walk off the stage with a degree in hand.

    What to do for fun

    The University of Sioux Falls is located right in the middle of Sioux Falls, SD - a fairly lively city - so there is always somewhere to go and something to do. Even still, if you never leave campus, you're likely to stay occupied. You can compete in the Summer/Winter Olympics, participate in various clubs/activities, spend time with friends and professors, catch a concert in Java City, take part in inter murals, walk around campus and look at the various sculptures, drop into Chapel on Tuesdays or Prayer Group on Wednesdays or Worship on Sundays. This just begins the list of eventful things to do at USF.

    Food and Dining

    While the hours are are sometimes inconvenient, the food is great. Java City, the snack and coffee shop downstairs, is also a great wonder for grabbing a good drink, slipping in a snack, and meeting up with friends.

    Dorm Life

    There is never a dull day on campus. Student Activities is always on the ball with creating dorm and campus activities, as well as Resident Directors that are dedicated in making your college experience something to remember. I have never had a greater family feeling (away from my real one that is) than I had in my first years at the University of Sioux Falls.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors at the University of Sioux Falls truly care about every students' success. They are always available and always ready to help. They're expectations and standards are high, but all the better to help you become all that you can be.

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet your professors and let them get to know you! Share your dreams, your ambitions, your hopes your fears - THEY CARE! The University of Sioux Falls has professors, Dorm Advisors, Student Faculty, and students who will pray with you, guide you, and encourage you to reach your greatest dreams. Hold NOTHING back!

    In three sentences

    The University of Sioux Falls is an incredible school of academics, opportunities, and community. I cannot have imagined starting my life anywhere else. I'm not a number, but a student; not a statistic, by a searching and seeking soul; not just a face in a classroom, but a friend, a daughter, a woman with a future.

    What to do for fun

    If you cannot find any campus activities that interest you, the campus is located near the Empire Mall, and also 3 different movie theaters. Falls Park is also a beautiful option on a warm spring day.

    Food and Dining

    Campus dining is very good high quality food. Java City is located in the downstairs section of the school and their coffee is always good for a cold day in South Dakota

    Dorm Life

    I have not lived on campus, but I do believe the dorm life there is very active. Each week there is always some kind of email about something going on around campus. The director of campus life likes to make sure there are plenty of activities for people to be involved with besides academics.

    Academic Rigor

    USF has a very high academic standards for their students. They want all of their students to succeed which is why they have an academic success center and writing center full of tutors to help students achieve their dreams of becoming a college graduate.

    Depending on what you plan to major in, USF has a variety of scholarships available. Check out all of your options and financial aid to make sure that your college experience is paid and less stressful for when you complete your degree

    The University of Sioux Falls is an amazing Christian Liberal Arts school dedicated to helping its students succeed. It has a small beautiful campus in Sioux Falls that can be walked across in less than five minutes. As well as there is always someone there willing to help you if you need it.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is great. The people working are always extremely nice and there are rarely any problems.

    Greek Life

    none.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a few clubs on campus that are a lot of fun, but getting information about them is a little bit difficult sometimes.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    In the freshman girls dorm, GI, we go mattress surfing down our stairs. There are always campus Olympics where the dorms compete against each other. On Valentine's Day we hold speed dating, not to seriously find a significant other, but as an extremely fun time to meet new people and have as much fun with it as you want.

    What to do for fun

    Get involved in the campus activities. There are also places around town to go bowling or ice skating.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the cafe is not awful, but if you are a picky eater then you might have trouble. They recently opened our coffee/sandwhich shop on Saturdays which has been wonderful. There is decent variety so you do not usually get too bored with one food.

    Tips for prospective students

    Talk to students when you are on campus and get what they think, not just the good but the bad also. Talk to a professor.

    In three sentences

    The professors are amiable, intelligent, and helpful. The campus activities are lacking, and could use some more enthusiasm. The athletes are catered to, and sometimes this means that students not in athletics are neglected.
