Review of South Dakota State University

My review

The Good:

SDSU has a great academic program, and the UPC (University Program Council) plans so many great events for the student population, many of which are free or at a very reasonable price. Most class sizes are small, and teachers are both experts in their fields while still being kind and easy to talk to. SDSU is nestled in Brookings, which is a richly historical small city with great local diners and bars.

The Bad:

Some classes are held in massive classrooms, holding up to 300 students. These are mostly general classes that are required by all students. The dorms are small, but that's to be expected with any dorm room, and with the new dorms, they are addressing that. Parking is difficult, especially for students living off campus.

Would I do it again?

Yes, The education that I received at SDSU is second to none. I just enrolled to pursue my master's degree from there, and am excited to continue my educational experience.
