6 Reasons SDSU Junior Day is Essential

You're a high school junior. You have the college search, campus tour and admissions process all ahead of you. South Dakota State University’s (SDSU) Junior Day on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, is a one-day event to get all the info you need to kick off your college search and narrow your options.

Get Help Picking a Major

Still deciding on a major of focus? You’re not alone! One beauty of Junior Day is the academic major fair where you can explore each of SDSU's major options and visit with faculty and department representatives from across campus.
