President’s Message

Laurie Nichols

Welcome to Black Hills State University! We are delighted that you have joined the BHSU family where students are the priority. Located in the charming community of Spearfish and the beautiful Black Hills, you will find that BHSU is a place that you will come to love, as you learn intellectually, grow personally, and experience exciting new things.
Faculty are student-centered and focused on your success. While they will push you to learn, they will also care personally about your academic success. Whether it is offering an enrichment experience like study abroad or undergraduate research—or providing academic support services like tutoring, you will find a personal touch at BHSU.
With over 4,000 students, you will make many friends as you engage with campus activities/events. I encourage you to fully participate and take advantage of the many leadership development opportunities we offer. As is often the case, you will find that learning outside of the classroom can be rich and impactful.
Again, welcome to Black Hills State University. You are about to begin a life-changing experience. Go Jackets!

Laurie Nichols, President
