It was far far better than my expectations. I completed my Masters in SDSU. I would definitely go there again if I will plan for another degree or so. Very good State University with very nice academic environment.

I did my undergrad here and just graduated in May. I can say that it was an ok town to go to school in. However, coming from a town with a big university and almost 250,000 people, Brookings was a MAJOR downsize. If you aren't from a small town, you may not enjoy it here. It's also extremely hard for people who want to get a degree and move because others who were born and raised near Brookings, ultimately get "stuck" there and they're interested in people to hire who will be there. The winters were all Awful, on campus housing was AWFUL and options for food/work/entertainment were AWFUL. To enjoy yourself even a little, going to Sioux Falls or even the Twin Cities was needed. My first two years were decent, professors knew their stuff, very flexible with homework and understanding. However, due to the university not compensating certain professors enough for their time and experience, my favorite professors were pushed to find employment at other universities. I was extremely irritated that good professors were not being taken care of. My last two years were a JOKE! Money down the drain for ultimately a "Google studies" degree. The courses were ridiculous and not thought out. I lived in Brown hall because it was the cheapest, but while under construction in my second year, we didn't have a lobby area and had to deal with constant construction on a daily basis. There was no compensation for this, no discount on housing because ours was being renovated, nothing. The meal plans were also a little expensive and the food overpriced. If I could do it over again I probably would've chosen a different university.BOTTOM LINE: If you are NOT here for nursing or ag, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

A terrible university, don't ever think of coming here, you will hate yourself. This university is like a trap once you enter you will be a hostage, they will tell you come we are affordable, and you think it is nice 4 year, it is NOT you will never graduate less the 7 year speaking of most degrees. Save your money and don't come here they will suck the last piny you have and you will be in a big debt stay a way from this garbage.

My dear friend Cole attends this prestigious University. He apparently loves the location and town! You see, we come from a small rural area in Illinois. It is very close to the town of Chicago, I don't know if anyone has heard of Chicago, but it is a great location. Lots of Pubs and friendly drunks. I hope you come visit to Chicago soon and I to Brookings, SD. Thank you very much, I appreciate everything you do and say!
