South Dakota State University has a great campus.
The buildings are beautiful.
The classrooms are easy to find and the professors are willing to help with any questions.

SDSU has a wide variety of programs and opportunities for it's students. They constantly have construction going on, which I did not like as a student because I never really felt like I was getting the typical college experience because of it. The classes I have taken range from have 400 students in one classroom to being one of fifteen students.
