student success story

Success story Turner Blasius posing for the camera in a suit and tie.
 I am a proud South Dakotan, and when I visited USD Law, I felt that the school and its faculty properly represented South Dakotan values. Following, Dean Fulton was one of the main deciding factors for me, because he is a native South Dakotan who has practiced law at a high level in South Dakota. Additionally, when I visited with Dean Fulton, he made my parents and I feel right at home and made us believe that USD Law School was best equipped to build me into a successful lawyer.
