Student Reviews and Ratings for Bates College

Jesus, if I could do my entire college career over, I would have stayed FAR AWAY from SDState. This place is a complete HACK. Only a select few departments get any funding, the administration could care less about the students, UPD is abusive, and the faculty are so stressed and overworked that it's amazing anyone still works here!AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS

One of the better looking universities in the area, but recently it's gotten more expensive, the great professors have left or only teach 1-2 classes a year because of finding issues and out of classroom experience is tough.Honestly, I would only go here for an ag-degree. The others (art, comp sci, engineering, math, etc) fall short and nursing is very cutthroat (2 years of classes and you get one B means your not accepted). Engineering professors care, but experience outside the classroom is vital and its tough to get an internship or full time job outside Brookings without a connection. The only place to work is Daktranics but they aren't student friendlyI've found year to year, classroom material differs, not covering necessary sections or professors hurry through concepts or examples to finish in time and expect you to fill in the gaps.Graduating in 4 years is tough, even 5 is hard with 16 credit semesters and summer classes. There also aren't enough quiet places to study. The library isn't big enough and don't have power outlets everywhere, voices echo in the dorms, classrooms are locked at night and weekends so you have to call campus police to let you in, coffee shops and the common areas don't have big enough tables to actually study; so good luck. Another thing is the lack of parking and car pooling into campus if you live off, the "required" dining plans the first two years where one meal costs $7-12 but you're only allotted $10 a day, the random closures at the gym, few jobs are available for students but tuition is high enough that you need 20-25 hours a week to afford next semester after government and school loans.Overall, it's decent looking school in the area, but there are some serious issues and I would have looked elsewhere if I knew these problems

The indoor football facility is amazing but never any toilet paper in the men's restroom.

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.
