Black Hills State University is a great school. It is small and cheap with great professors. It is easy to find research jobs on campus. The University Honors Program is excellent and gives a great opportunity to connect professors. The small population juxtaposed with the excellent faculty provides an incredible opportunity to become recognized and excel. The Black Hills is a also a beautiful area.
