Dixie State is a unique experience where else can you where flip flops all year. The red rock view The town is small( St George UT), this college has a diverse culture and it mixes well with the rest of the students, I am a returning adult student being in my 40's I don't feel out of place this is a nice school they are building new facilities right now. This will free up more buildings for class rooms. Dixie STATE IS THE BEST! Sanskrit college town but close enough to surrounding recreation.

Overall Rating

They have good activities. Good school spirit. Athletics are great and enjoyable to watch. The weather is the best here. It stays pretty nice for the fall and spring semesters. That is a huge plus for me. I love to be out doors a lot so that was a major contributor to me attending Dixie State College.
