List of the Smallest Colleges in South Dakota

Everyone is different, and for some, the big college experience can be quite daunting and uncomfortable. That's why South Dakota is also home to a good number of small colleges, to accommodate students who prefer personalized attention from professors and advisors. The small college experience also gives students the opportunity to be more hands-on with their learning. Because the class sizes are so much smaller than those of bigger colleges, students really get to know one another on a personal level. Thinking about attending a small institution in the state? Check out our list of the smallest colleges in South Dakota below.
