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.

Majors & Degrees

Trojan Center

The Trojan Center Student Union (TC) serves as DSU’s community center and is the heart of our campus.  This is a place to meet your friends, grab a bite to eat, sit by the fireplace to read a book, buy spirit wear, engage with student organizations, and attend events. 

Beyond convenience

Enjoy your shopping experience while visiting the Trojan Zone bookstore and snag a snack from Bits 'n Bytes convenience store. Relieve some stress over a game of pool or table tennis available in the game room. The TC is a great place to maintain a good study, work, and social balance. With designated study rooms and regularly scheduled events, you'll find a reason to stop by the TC every day of the week.
