More young people (and older people) are hitting the books at South Dakota's public Universities.

According to the Associated Press, enrollment is up about a third of a percent, and while the increase may be slight, even I know that's better than a decrease!

Who led the way in student enrollment increase? That would be Dakota State University in Madison with an increase of nearly 4% (Remember when Dakota State was General Beadle?). USD in Vermillion has about 2% more students.

So how many students attend the six universities? 36, 662.

Now those are smart folks...and getting smarter.
