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.

DSU photography students shoot Monster X Tour

February 5, 2015

DSU photography students had the opportunity to become professional photographers for a day. On Saturday, January 30, 2015, Professor Thomas Jones and his students photographed the Monster X Tour at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, S.D.

“Such experience is extremely hard to come by while still in school,” stated Jones. “Students will be able to add this experience to their portfolio.”

Sharnel Bierman, Chelsea Meyer, Bill Delaney and recent graduate Nicole Jurrens took advantage of this great opportunity to gain some professional photography experience.  The student’s photographs will be seen by hundreds of thousands of fans throughout the United States, including credit given to their photos in Monster Truck Entertainment yearbook and on the website and Facebook.
