“There are a number of excellent colleges and universities in South Dakota. We are very pleased Forbes considers USD the best in the state,” said James W. Abbott, USD president.

Scott Pohlson, USD vice president of marketing, enrollment and university relations, said that as a public university, USD is in some great company because the top schools in surrounding states include private institutions Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska, Grinnell College, in Grinnell, Iowa, and Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.

“This reinforces what we’ve always believed. USD is a unique public liberals arts university in its size, quality and affordability,” Pohlson said.
