Dante - 05/03/2022

Dixie State University from back home is seen as just a party school. That the people here only come to part and get drunk and to experience the college life. The honest truth is that every college has those people that come with that intention. Dixie State is like any other college with cool fun loving people. The international students especially bring so much uniqueness to this school. The professors are all lax yet show that they care for us and want us to pass their class. Soon to be Utah Tech University the college is a college for everyone and you'll make the bestest friends. Every wednesday of the school year there is an event to go and enjoy to especially meet new people from all around the West US. This is a great university for all.

Rianna - 02/01/2022

You are probably smarter than your professors. Go to another school, this “university” is like high school. I have never seen lack of competence more than i have attending this school. Even if your do your assignments, and there is a technical problem on their end, it is still your problem and you will have no other option but to fail the class. Trashy and uneducated professors, there is really nothing good about this school.

Andrew - 12/03/2021

Its a great school, the food on campus is great there's Pizza Hut, Sushi, Subway, Etc. The classroom size is around 20-30 people which is basically a high school classroom size. The people here on campus is helpful and friendly. My roommates were kind and great to me the first day I got to the dorm rooms. Ive met great people but unfortunately with some friends you'll make you dont want to keep them if they're bad influence to you

Autumn - 05/13/2021

DSU is cost effective and has small class sizes that make it easy to socialize with fellow students and professors. Most professors are very invested in their students. DSU is going through a period of growth and change, so there are some really updated buildings and some really out of date buildings. Overall, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
