The campus is easy to navigate and they are constantly working to update existing buildings as well as add completely new ones! There is plenty of open grass for various intramural sports and easy year round access to baseball, softball, soccer and football fields as well as indoor courts and gyms. The university is constantly expanding the programs they offer and are about to start construction on a new science and engineering building to offer more degrees in those fields. While being affordable the benefits available on campus are stellar. There are lots of activities for students all throughout the year as well as tutors for any subject you might be taking.

DSU is great! They really care about you education and the staff really push you forward to not only reach your major but your dreams as well. They want the best for us, especially with their motto of, "Active life. Active Learning." They want to make learning more fun. The staff are also another great part of this great institution. They are ready to work with you and will make you a priority. The counselors are ready to help you, the professors will help you as fast as you can because there isn’t a bunch of students crammed into a class room. The area around is nice and has many attractions a few hours outside of school.
Dixie State University has a really exciting vibe to it. There are always activities and events happening on campus, you can never get bored! The professors are awesome and class sizes are small, which makes it very easy to get to know your professor personally. They really care about their students and are willing to take time out of their days to help out. The Holland building has many helpful aspects to it if you ever need any help, there are people there ready and willing to assist your every need and answer any question you may have. There are also free tutors and writing help which comes in handy with hard homework or editing papers. Overall Dixie State University is a great place to attend school!
