Northern State University (NSU) is a great place to be. The small class size and the safe location makes it a perfect environment for studies. Although, Aberdeen SD looks like a small town it has a lot to offer. On-campus housing helps to build great friendships. Although scholarships and job opportunities are limited you can still find something for you. Being a student at NSU also gave me the opportunity to take part in extracurricular activities, for e.g. jazz band and intramurals. Overall NSU was a great experience for me, the only thing I would like to see is more liveliness in the town. show less

This is a great university to attend. Although it is a great university it is located in Aberdeen South Dakota. And there isn't a whole lot to do in Aberdeen. Although there isn't a lot of things to do, Northern compensate for that by organizing fun activities like glow bowling, Northern's got talent, comedy shows and so many more. I am a sophomore here and I feel like Northern still have so much to offer to me. show less
