Located at the foot of the beautiful Black Hills in Rapid City, South Dakota's second largest city, the campus is 20 minutes from Mount Rushmore. Rapid City has a relatively mild climate and the Black Hills offer numerous opportunities for summer and winter outdoor experiences. Learn more about our location in the Black Hills.
