South Dakota State University

We are the state’s largest university—and if you ask us, the best. With South Dakota’s most comprehensive range of academic offerings, there’s no better place to explore everything from aerospace to zoology.

No matter which of our 183 fields of study our students pursue, they get a personal, practical education on our vibrant campus. Undergrads and graduate students alike learn to succeed in classes led by dedicated professors. And nearly all of our alumni carry lifelong memories of their Jackrabbit years. Hands-on research projects with nationally respected professors, internships that bring coursework to life, and choices from over 200 student organizations ensure that there is something for everyone.

As a land-grant university, we’ve always served South Dakota; today we build on that tradition by developing responsible global leaders. So it’s no surprise that our students’ prospects after commencement are the envy of their friends from other universities—95 percent of our students go onto jobs, graduate school, or other opportunities such as internships and fellowships.
