SDSU has a great environment set up for learning and getting to that boring part of college we all dread...studying. The fact that most of the people in my dorm (Matthews) were involved in the same things as I am meant they were in a lot of my classes which made it awesome when it came time to getting some work done! The student union is a fantastic quiet place to kick back, enjoy a cup of coffee and get some last minute studying done.

    The food is okay. The nice dorms are super expensive. SDSU cares more about its sporting departments than academics in my opinion.

    Recently started in Data Analytics graduate program and have had nothing but disappointment after disappointment. If you are looking for program who instructors who care about the students success do NOT go here. I have never had such unsupportive instructors in my life.. I discussed my discontent with the head of the Math and Statistics department and felt pretty much blown off. unfortunately this is the only way I can think of to force the school to do better.

    It was the only school I looked at. And it felt completely like home when I stepped on campus. Its not too big but not too small either. Brookings is a decent size town and accommodates to the college kids quite well.

    South Dakota State University has the programs I'm looking for and at lower rates than my other choice, North Dakota State University. South Dakota State University also has many more opportunities for myself and others for fun and participation for anything we're interested in. I'm really looking forward to starting class at SDSU.

    An excellent opportunity especially if you live in-state. Many financial options available to those who believe they might not afford it. Diversity is minimal, however.

    I fell in love when I visited SDSU's campus three years ago. When I came back during my senior year nothing had changed, the atmosphere is great, the professors are really nice and understanding. I cannot wait to attend this coming fall.

    SDSU is an affordable school in a charming, rural town where the cost of living is conducive to student life. There are lots of opportunities for students who actively seek them.

    SDSU is an environment that accepts individuals of all backgrounds. I am a proud student of SDSU and there are many resources for students to succeed, including tutoring and professors that are willing to go the extra mile to help students. Additionally, there are many clubs and activities that accept all students.

    I always wanted to come to SDSU to learn, for it was the nicest and cheapest campus around. I am now just starting my second semester here and I would give it a 4 out 5 stars.
