Black Hills State University is very proud of our student veteran graduates. They come from all branches of our military, from all across the country, to get a quality education. They seek degrees that will help them pursue careers in Science, Education, Business, Medical, and Human Services. Whatever path they choose, no one can ever take away that feeling of getting a college diploma.    Congratulations veterans, we salute you!
