    I just thought it was strange but kinda cool to get info on that Dakota school here in Arkansas. We've gotten 16 postcards and letters to Oklahoma State, numerous ones to schools here in the state, and a few from Texas and Louisiana schools but not much past the southern region.

    Small private schools (which DSU isn't practice private I realize) up north spent a bunch of resources recruiting internationally and outside of the region.

    People in the area know about the schools. Often times unless sports or family history have a tie to a kid they know the success rate for recruiting "locally" is lower - which is why the student population at most private schools schools around here have like a 80+% athletic/music participation rate for enrollment

    But they can offer massive financial packages to kids out of region to make the cost cheaper than local or state schools (because the sticker price is so inflated).

    The students private D3 I played football at that weren't involved in sports/music were almost all exclusively from it of region

    My son is heading there in January after basic training and school for the National Guard. He is going there for the IT program. He really liked it when he went to a computer camp there when he was a sophomore in high school.
