Dixie State University is awesome! If you like more of a community feel with small class sizes Dixie is the place for you. Professors are amazing and understanding, classes are all within walking distance and they have a good variety of subjects to study. There are weekly activities and tons of clubs to join. Through the school, there are many opportunities for service within the communities. The sporting events are fun and the student section is very involved. There are a lot of nice new buildings including a brand new gym with four floors and rooftop courts. It is one of the cheaper four-year colleges in the state of Utah and provides a great education. I would highly recommend this school!

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 has a beautiful and relatively small campus. It used to be a state college and recently became a University so it has a small-town feel which is welcoming to new students. However, I do think it's departments and faculty/staff are understaffed and underpaid due to the low tuition. It's a blessing and a curse to attend a University that's still growing. It's not the best education out there but it's not the worst either. Give it a chance!
