Start Your SDSU Story Off Right

At South Dakota State University, we have more than 12,000 students who come to discover who they are, what they like to do and where they want to go. These questions can be challenging, but with positive support systems in place you can pursue your talents, goals and passions. Making healthy and responsible choices will influence your college career—let us help you with your strategy and we can find out what works for you!


Prevent unanticipated risks or a not-so-great situation by thinking about how the choice will affect you, your college life and your family. This can involve studying, alcohol, how you handle a conflict, and more.


Make choices that benefit you and your peers—even if you don’t think so now, your healthy or unhealthy choices today will affect your tomorrow. Think of the better you that you are and want to be.
