Nursing and business are the two that are majorly funded by the university and a lot of the other majors are set aside. They offer very few classes and time slots for the classes needed for some majors and a lot of people I know are worried that they are not going to be able to finish their major due to very few classes. The people here are nice, but tend to form cliques
The online experience was very rough and hard to adapt to. The professors also seemed to not be very into the lecture and so were the students.
I will say first of all that I did have some good professors, but the issues at Dixie being that the administration ruins the academics by meddling in department affairs. There is little to do on campus or around campus other than hike and mountain bike so I was frequently bored. The school has also gained a bit of a reputation for not preparing students for higher level classes and for their careers for that matter, in talking with friends and colleagues this has been quite evident. I does have being cheap going for it though.
I really have not enjoyed my time at Dixie State. They are behind the times in technology. I have felt that the professors are not on the same page, some use canvas, some require physical copies, and some do both. I have been to other colleges and they seemed more in-tune with the students needs. All students really remain separated by program or major even outside of class. Also being part of a program they have not held to their side of agreement that they verbally made when I came into. They enticed by saying the ensure certain things but they have not held themselves to those things.
Overall, this college is nice. I don't like that the approach to academics here. I prefer going to a college that stresses importance on the academic aspect of college. This university is centered around the athletics and some of that focus needs to be relayed to the academic parts of this school.
Some information, very little counseling services
I don't think my school has a post-grad service.
Since I'm going here for my associates degree alone, there is nothing to help support that. It is not worth going to school here unless you want to be a part of the medical programs which are very competitive.
The course we were required to take was a waste of time in my point of view. It did teach MLA format, But i learned more from my teachers in high school than any of the online classes.
It is a cheaper school, that's good. There are some really great professors. There are also some poor professors. What's more, the school administration seems very disorganized. I had several times I couldn't take a test at the professional testing center because of frequent tech issues, or because they told me I had to call to schedule and when I called they told me they only take walk-ins (like five different times). I lost $80 because they insisted I could take my CLEP on the expiration date. Last semester I couldn't ENROLL because I was locked out of my account and the help desk didn't respond to several phone calls and messages leaving my name, phone number, student number, and email. Emailing them just sends a message saying to call the help desk. The experience here is inconsistent, and some programs are much better than others. Tuition keeps going up more than we bargained for when we enrolled, and SUU is a better school and offers better scholarships with cheaper housing. They give up good opportunities for selfish reasons. Dixie State University would have more name recognition and a better reputation and quality of education if they had taken the chance to become University of Utah South, and in this job market and with the cost of education, there's no excuse for allowing conservative retirees to hurt our chances. There are racist ties to the name that I wasn't aware of when I enrolled, and the local community is in deep denial. It's relatively cheap. But I really don't want "Dixie State University" to be what's written on my transcript.
When I took an online course all I remember was how annoying it was. The professor recorded herself speaking in a monotone voice about the course content and it was nearly unbearable to listen to. Didn't learn much or pay much attention for this reason.
no one is ever in there office ever!! the campus is nice for the area but doesn't compare to big name schools or even nice parks at all.
its just BYU junior, no parties, no social things, they repeat the same school event every semester so no one goes, no programs so you have to transfer, great weather for Utah but not compared to California
Very limited course offerings. Little to no night classes-- a nightmare for nontraditional students.
I've never seen anything of that nature.
I really don't care for online classes. If I have any questions, I can's simply just get them answered, I have to go to great lengths for an answer. There is hardly an interaction between the student and teacher. The programs always seem to have glitches on online classes too and that reflects on my grade for something that isn't my fault.
