Move-In Day at SDSU



Bookmark and Share


It’s move-in day at many state colleges in South Dakota including South Dakota State University. As the students arrived on campus Friday, they saw some changes, including new dorms and an expanded student union.

As students make multiple trips to and from the car unpacking for a new year, they are in for some new changes on campus.

Four new dorms have been built on South Dakota State’s Campus: Hyde, Ben Reifel, Schultz and Honors. They are buildings to house about 800 more students than last year.

"It's a goal of having freshman, sophomore neighborhood on this side of campus,” said Vice President of Student Affairs, Marysz Rames.

The newer dorms are equipped with bigger living spaces. They have a living room, kitchen, study spaces and a laundry room on each floor. They are designed to recruit and attract even more students

"We really hope this is something that makes our kids excited to be on campus," said Assistant Director of Residental Life, Toby Uecker.

Sophomore Jennifer Sutton and her dad Mike just finished their 15 hour drive to Brookings. She will be living in the new Honor dorm this year.

"I'm really excited, the dorm is beautiful and it is brand new. It’s going to be nice,” said student Jennifer Sutton.

Traveling from Ohio, Sutton was attracted to the school because of the newer additions the University has made the past couple of years.   

"I came out here for a visit and I loved the school. They are building so many new things,” said Sutton.

Across the road is freshman Storm Peterson from California. He visited the campus in April and decided SDSU is where he wanted to go.

"I'm pretty excited to get on my own, it will be a fun experience," said student Storm Peterson.

He will be living in Binnewies, which is an older dorm on campus, but he doesn't seem to mind.

It's seems like here people are keeping their doors open, I think you can meet a lot of more people that way," said student Storm Peterson.

The Student Union has also expanded from last year. It has extra seating for 350 and 3 new restaurants: Extreme Peta, Panada Express and Chick-Fil-A.
