The Princeton Review profiled the University of South Dakota as one of the nation’s top 380 colleges in its 2016 guide that’s available on the Web and in book form.
The Princeton Review is an education services company known for its tutoring, test-prep programs, books, admission services and other resources for students. Its college guide results are based on surveys of 136,000 students that asked them 80 questions about their school’s academics, administration, student body and themselves.
Among the responses, USD students said the school has an honors program that’s “the best-kept secret in the country,” professors who are “willing to go the extra mile for students” and a number and variety of student organizations that are “a great way to meet new people and (to participate) in activities."
“It’s always good to know you’re in this ranking. But knowing what students value most about USD helps us stay focused on our goal of providing a valuable college experience,” said Scott Pohlson, USD vice president of Marketing, Enrollment & University Relations.
