College – family style
Three Knuston women attended South Dakota State University at the same time. Edna, shown at left, just graduated with a bachelor of science in nursing, and her older daughter, Kianna, shown at right, just graduated with a bachelor of science in entrepreneurial studies. The younger daughter, Katlin, has completed her freshman year. Kianna’s degree took four years, while Edna’s took 15 years, off and on, with her completing her associate degree in nursing in 2011. “It was just kind of unusual for all three of us to be attending SDSU at the same time, Katlin traditionally as a freshman living in the dorms, Kianna living off campus in Brookings, but attending traditional classes, and me completing my degree remotely,” said E. Knutson.
