About Us

Be Great. Start Here.

There is something about being a Jackrabbit!

South Dakota State University is the state’s largest and most comprehensive university with more than 200 academic programs. Our students get a personal, practical education on a vibrant campus with faculty that are engaged – not only in the classroom – but also throughout campus.

Flexible academic programs provide hands-on learning with professional experiences through internships, study abroad and the experiential learning today’s students seek. We prepare students to make a difference in the world!

The value of SDState is found in excellent academics, affordability through value-driven tuition and scholarship opportunities and a campus community that creates Jackrabbits for life. More than 200 student organizations are available to ensure there is something for everyone.

Located in Brookings, the university is home to more than 12,000 students – large enough for those seeking a big-time campus feel, but yet not too big that students don’t feel at home.
