Discover SDSU for yourself at Senior Day!  

The fun is just beginning here at SDSU, and we'd like you to be a part of it. Come and explore our huge variety of academic programs and student activities, details about the admissions process and options for paying for college.

You'll also take a tour of campus with one of our friendly and knowledgeable student ambassadors. They'll show you some of the main places on campus that our students use everyday—including the Student Union, Wellness Center, library, classrooms and one of our residence halls!  

All students will receive a free pass to our Senior Day BBQ and Jacks football game that evening. And that's not all—enjoy half-time entertainment with our nationally renowned Pride of the Dakotas Marching Band. If you've never heard our school song before—you will!  

Parents and other family members may purchase tickets for the BBQ and game at Senior Day. Seating for family members is available in the Senior Day or Standing Room sections.
