Online Masters Degree South Dakota

South Dakota, a constituent state of the United States of America is named after the Dakota Sioux people. South Dakota became the 40th state of the union on November 2, 1889. The state has two unique physical features: it contains the geographic center of the United States, which is located just north of Belle Fourche, and it has its continental divide, because of which Lake Traverse, in the southeastern corner of the state, flows northward to Hudson Bay, and Big Stone Lake, on the Minnesota border, flows southward to the Gulf of Mexico. South Dakota is bordered by North Dakota to the north, Minnesota, and Iowa to the east, Nebraska to the south, and Wyoming and Montana to the west. The state is split by the upper Missouri River valley into eastern and western regions. Pierre, in central South Dakota, is one of the country’s smallest state capitals.
