Warm and Welcoming

Residents, students and visitors to Vermillion have enjoyed the city's warm and welcoming charm for more than 150 years. Today, about 10,000 adventurers, farmers, manufacturers, professionals and scholars call Vermillion their home.

Easily Accessible

Downtown restaurants, movie theaters, cafés and specialty shops are all within walking distance of the campus. But if you're up for a road trip, you can make Sioux Falls or Sioux City in less than an hour, Omaha in about two and Minneapolis in five.

Seasonal Adventures

Choose a season, select your adventure. Kayak on the Missouri River or sail on Lewis & Clark Lake. Bike along the river, hike at Spirit Mound. Golf at The Bluffs or splash down at the new Prentis Plunge aquatic center. And if it happens to snow, ski or snowboard at nearby Great Bear Recreational Park.
