USD prepping for the next school year

VERMILLION, S.D.(WNAX)- While university campuses across the state are quiet now, preparations are underway for the start of classes late next month.

University of South Dakota President Sheila Gestring says they are better prepared to help students with financial challenges.

Gestring says she doesn’t want to guess on student numbers yet.

Overall student enrollment at the six state universities has declined over the past six years.
