What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Do not let campus size or enrollment numbers scare you away, there is plenty of activities and fun to be had both on and off campus.
Cera from Sioux Falls, SD
The school may seem smaller than most, but it feels so much more like home that way. You always see someone you know which makes it less lonely. Don't be afraid to go out there and have a good time, put yourself out there - you won't be sorry.
Chasity from Parkston, SD
Have fun.
Chantelle from Sioux Falls, SD
Don't be affraid to ask for help when you need it. This campus is full of people who love to help and make things easier for you. Never feeling like you're on your own either.
