Dixie is a growing campus and the trend is towards a new technology perspective. The facilities are first-rate, and the faculty in my classes have been wonderful. I am now returning to school for a second degree, and I didn’t even consider another university.
There is an undercurrent of deep conservatism.
I love the free tutoring through the Writing Center and eLab. Dixie always seems to have some sort of activity. The Institute building and gym are both beautiful, fun places to spend time with friends.
They don't have a cafeteria/buffet, just restaurants (making their meal plan really expensive). They also say they have a Starbucks, but it's never open.
Underdog kind of school with a high community spirit.
Low-budget, conservative area.
I really enjoy the social environment at the school. There are always activities happening on campus. The community feeling on campus is amazing.
The school is fairly small but it is expanding.
My experience at Dixie State (soon to be Utah Tech) has been amazing. This university strives to immerse students in an active learning, active life and they allow students to begin networking as soon as they begin their freshman year. The advisors and professors on campus and all of the faculty behind the scenes work to help every student succeed. Take a walk around campus and everyone will smile and wave. It is a friendly environment and everyone is looking out for one another. We all want to succeed and we all rise together. When one of us advances, we all take a step in the right direction. I am grateful for my experience at Dixie State.
Dixie State University is a great university, but please be mindful of parking availability. I would recommend parking off campus because chances are, if you have a class after 9 am, you will not get a parking spot. Don't spend the money on the pass, it is not worth it. Park off-campus and walk to your classes, it will save you from wasting your money on a piece of plastic, it will allow you to get some fresh air, and it will save you time and gas money.
I love the campus and class sizes!
With it being a smaller yet growing college there are some downsides.
