Why you should attend?

South Dakota Mines is an excellent choice for military students because, most importantly, the school's graduate placement rate for military/veteran students is 100% for the past six years. Also, South Dakota Mines is a STEM university, meaning its academic programs focus on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, fields heavily targeted by today's employers, and for which military students are particularly suited. Additionally, the support that military students receive here is phenomenal, such as: a benchmark Veterans Resource Center; Veterans Upward Bound on site; veteran-to-veteran tutoring/mentoring; military-specific orientation; military-specific scholarship, financial literacy, and college success workshops; and yearly, multiple, campus-wide military appreciation events.
