  • Degree: Nutrition
  • Graduation Year: 2012
"I felt that my degree program adequately prepared me to go on to a Master's degree concurrent with a dietetic internship in the area of nutrition and dietetics. The university offers a myriad of undergraduate and graduate majors. Tuition is cheap compared to most other universities nationwide located in an area with a cheap cost of living. However, there are steps SDSU could take to increase the diversity of the university. SDSU is also located in a smaller town, which would not be a good fit for those who prefer fast-paced lifestyles or larger cities."

"The grad nursing instructors don't teach. They expect you to know & demean you when you don't. They don't want you to succeed; they make it as hard as possible. I filed an official complaint as I was required to do extra assignments other students didn't have to do and when those weren't satisfactory to them they had me sign a document saying they would lower my grade an entire letter. I honestly cannot say enough negative about the power and dynamics going on there. Please stay away"

"South Dakota State University was big enough where it had so many options for majors, extracurricular activities, and organizations, but had a small town feeling that made it seem like home. I am so happy I chose to get my education from there."

"College was an amazing experience that shaped me into the adult I am now. Not only do you learn a lot in terms of academics, but you also gain a lot of skills such as time management and balance. College is also a great experience in regards to growing up, it's almost like training wheels for being out of the house and becoming an adult."
