DSU is a small campus in which students are valued and professors actually know your name. Your class sizes are small, anywhere from 5-30 students. The faculty and staff are very helpful. Students can attend athletic games and fine & performing arts events for free which was a nice perk! There are also different clubs/organizations to join. There is also the opportunity to meet students from all over the US and world because DSU's campus has a diverse student population.S
Dickinson State University has been a true pioneer in moulding me for my ideal career path. It is very affordable with a faculty that puts priority in directing me to follow my dreams as a International Nurse practitioner.
