Bottom line

The University of South Dakota offers a “great student to faculty communicative experience at a reasonable price.” “The perfect fit for students looking for a smart educational investment.” For students willing to throw themselves into their studies “the odds of getting into a professional or graduate program are good.” Annually, USD awards scholarships to more than 800 first-year students; very impressive, with a total enrollment of only 6,000 students. “The people are extremely welcoming and if I had to go back a year and look at colleges without financial limits, I would have still chosen USD.”
