3.40 Average Rating
Sitting Bull College has alot of great classes to offer. I enjoy going to classes and meeting new peers at the start of each semester. Sitting Bull College is a very affordable and credited college that I would recommend to any of my friends.

Sitting Bull College is, as one outreach coordinator says, the Harvard of Tribal Colleges, and it deserves this- the education offered at Sitting Bull is top-notch, whether pursuing business, education, environmental studies, or other majors. The classes at Sitting Bull are small providing a lot of one-on-one attention and the instructors are dedicated professionals who work hard to ensure the learning and success of every student. As a student, and without exception all other students I know here would say similar, I feel I am lucky to attend such a great small school.
