Student & Graduate Reviews

4.8 out of 5 stars
L.L.S. - 2/26/2015
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2009
"My fields of study were exceptional. The number of the classes for English and History (primarily British/Euro) was enough to allow one variety, and the numbers of the students was small enough to be able to provide a more intimate learning experience. The psychology professors I had were good, though some of the courses were slightly repetitive. The English professors, especially in higher level courses were knowledgable individuals with their roots stemming from all over the globe. Their personal experiences gave a strong foundation to the courses they taught. The same was true of my history professors. Their courses and subjects were strengthened by their personal life experiences. Overall the professors were invested in the success of their students, lending time for conversation and extra books if they were needed. Attending this university gave me the option to unlock a part of myself and succeed where I was once too shy to!"

"I went to Law School at USD and really enjoyed the program. Although expensive it is more affordable then other law programs. The professors are all very accessible and genuinely care about the students."

"The University of South Dakota provided me the foundation to be successful in my career. USD is great school and would encourage anyone looking for a school with strong academic program coupled with a traditional university experience to look at USD. GO YOTES!!"

Brandon L. Summers - 7/15/2014
Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2008
"I love history, and wanted to pursue it as a career. Once I received my degree, I discovered it was not enough to become a teacher, contrary to what I had been told by my advisers, and career placement services simply told me, "There's nothing we can do for you." They didn't even try! Not even the fact of a graduate degree has helped me. I enjoyed my classes and learning, but now I make less than a janitor and struggle daily with debt."
