Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Dakota Space: Blasting off into Space Week

October 3, 2018

From Space Day on Aug. 27 to the homecoming theme Dakota Space: Infinite Possibilities, the space theme continues at Dakota State University with a World Space Week event. On Sunday, Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. DSU is hosting a screening of National Geographic’s unreleased Mars documentary. It will be screened in the Gamified Mars Learning Lab in the Kennedy Center Rm. 123. Seating is limited to 25.

World Space Week was originally organized in 1980 by the World Space Week Association each July 16-24 to celebrate the first moon landing. By 1999, Space Week was celebrated by 15 nations and the United Nations General Assembly declared “World Space Week” to be held every year from October 4-10. On Oct. 4, 1957 the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik, the world’s first artificial satellite. The beach-ball sized satellite launch kicked off the start of the Space Age.

For more information on the documentary screening, contact Dr. Mark Geary at 605-256-7301 or at Mark.Geary@dsu.edu.
