Success story Kaitlyn Kumm smiling.
I decided to come to USD because of how much it felt like home when I visited it on a campus tour. The Al Neuharth Media Center caught my attention right away and I was blown away by all it had to offer. The staff has been encouraging and welcoming since my first day of college.
