I have already gained alot of knowledge and it's only the end of the first semester. I'm studying for geology and took earth science in high school so I expected that I would know most of what we learned in physical geology but I really learned a lot more. The teachers are very helpful and get to know you since it's a small school. The laptop program helps because you can find notes and power points for your classes on the system.

    At first I was worried about being so far away from home, but everyone here is nice and helpful making South Dakota School of Mines and Technology feel like home. South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is a nerd school with a bunch of crazy and fun clubs like robotics, 3D printing, and fermentation. Overall, I am glad I came to South Dakota School of Mines and Technology even though school is hard but if you put in the work it all works out.

    It seems like a pretty cool school. All the classes are taught by the professors, and they really know what they're doing. The chemistry program is really small, which allows for a lot of personal attention.

    This school is almost a guaranteed way of learning everything you need to and more concerning your major, getting a great job with a great starting salary, and meeting new and interesting people. The people are generally all concerned about doing their best and learning everything they can to assist them in their future. Most of the staff share in the interest of their students' futures and are sure to help you to understand and do well, figure out exactly which major/area of study is right for you, and even get through all the new social situations that come along with starting college.

    The faculty and staff are helpful and kind, which is nice for beginners. The campus is small, but well kept. Students at the campus, for the most part, are extremely helpful, and give great advice on how to succeed at the college level.

    A smaller campus, but one that is very friendly and success driven. Even though most students struggle since the material is so difficult, don't let that deter you away, for their are infinite resources and aids to help, plus the professors are friendly and have an open door policy.

    The classes here are wonderful and the professors are passionate. The residence life staff is, unfortunately, not satisfactory. Every academic aspect of this university it incredible.

    South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is a competitive and nurturing school. Anyone who wants to not only learn but also be mentally challenged by their peers and professors should apply to this school. Class sizes are easily manageable, the professors are genuine, and the student body is unlike anything I've ever been introduced to.

    This college can provide an excellent education in math, science, or engineering for a great price. However, you have to want that degree, as some of the classes are extremely challenging. Most professors go above and beyond at SDSMT, and help is always available through many different sources.
