Dean (now gone) pressured people to make self look good.
Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Brookings, SD – June 2, 2017
Although our department offered a business-related degree, I was the only one in the department with a business background. Department and next level administration did not have business backgrounds or experience.
Nice location and environment.
Teach too many courses that don't repeat semester to semester.
Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Brookings, SD – May 18, 2017
The South Dakota State University graduate program in animal science is an affordable and applied education. It is appropriately focused towards placing their graduates in a career within their field of study.
Working at school is very convenient, hours are all at night (5-11), sometimes the schedules get messed up and we are running around with our heads cut off trying to find officials for Intramural games.
SDSU is extremely slow, too restrictive and requires you to work with out any benefits and does not offer its students any financially support or with needed resources. They only offer NASA fellowships, but you have to sign over your intellectual rights. Plus there is no scholarships and does not work with any other funding type if not supported by NASA. Plus there is next to nothing to do in the provincial town of Brookings, SD and the GSE faculty are not friendly and are crazy and they advertises its affiliation with EROS faculty but you don't get to do anything with them and the all the data they collect barely gets used!
Like people say the weather is horrible and not inhabitable and the closest hospital is an hour away by car.
Most economical and well-cultured institution Professors are extremely nice, and they are always ready to help someone grow. The research and research facilities are very interesting. Modern facilities avaialbale
Community assistant (Former Employee) – Brookings, SD – February 11, 2017
Good experience with the position. This was an on-campus job. Therefore, there was no demanding task, and no CEO, only the supervisor. Supervisors and co-workers, who are also students are very helpful and friendly.
I spent over 60 hours a week at the preschool, it was required in order to graduate so there weren't any benefits unless you consider the educational benefits and the insights I gained... which I definitely did.
