Ten individuals, ranging from students to alumni, take time to talk about what makes SDSU a place to visit and attend.
“Hearing what makes South Dakota State University special through the eyes of actual students is important to all of us at State,” said Mike Lockrem, director of University Marketing and Communications. “We have heard from many students about how important a campus visit was when deciding on where to attend, so furthering the opportunity to showcase SDSU is a great opportunity. We know the college search process is changing, and it’s important to reach prospective students where they are today.”
Boylan, executive producer and host, said “Selecting a college is a monumental decision in a young person’s educational journey and this episode will give prospects a firsthand look at what makes South Dakota State University’s culture so special. And most importantly the story of the college is told through the authentic lens of its students.”
