Welcome to Dixie State University!! We are so pleased to have you here.

By familiarizing yourself with the DSU Catalog, you have taken the first step to being successful at Dixie State University. This comprehensive guide to Dixie academics will not only answer any questions you may have right now, but will point you in the right direction during all stages of your education here at DSU.

I encourage you to maintain this commitment to your education. By pairing your determination to succeed with the resources listed in this catalog, you will, without a doubt, experience the “Active Learning, Active Life” Dixie has to offer. This new tagline exemplifies the university’s dedication to providing opportunities for students to experience learning and life to their fullest.

I am excited for you to explore our campus and community to see firsthand what “Active Learning, Active Life” is all about. Whether you broaden your horizons by checking out the weekly presenter at Dixie Forum, enjoy the beautiful southern Utah scenery by getting some exercise on the Presidential Fitness Loop on campus, or participate in one of the more than 70 clubs offered at DSU, I am confident you will find the perfect way to be engaged.

Not only does “Active Learning, Active Life” mean you’ll be able to learn in stunning national parks and participate in hands-on activities on campus, it also offers opportunities to engage with the community and enjoy all that southern Utah has to offer.

It is our hope that you will not only embrace an active approach to learning and life while you are studying at Dixie State, but that you will continue to do so throughout your entire career and life. If you commit yourself to actively seeking knowledge and truth while here, the time you spend at Dixie will propel you into a life packed with experiences, achievements, and fulfillment.

I look forward to seeing you on campus!
