DSU students are satisfied
Students are very satisfied with their college experience at Dakota State University, according to the 2009 Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI.) The survey is an evaluation of the academic programs and services at college campuses across the nation. The SSI measures students' satisfaction with a wide range of college experiences, programs, and services. This survey provides information on how satisfied students are with DSU and what is most important to them. DSU's ratings are compared to over 100,000 students from four-year public universities around the country.
DSU students' average satisfaction ratings were significantly higher than the national averages in eleven of the twelve areas, including concern for the individual, service excellence, campus life, academic advising and campus support services. Dakota State students have participated in the web-based survey since 2000.
