Technology is a priority at DWU: it offers an entirely wireless campus with a modern art studio, a DNA sequencer for biochemistry, museums, and a multimedia center.

Volunteer work is also an important part of college life at DWU. The school reports that every one of its student-run organizations and sports teams is involved with giving back to the community.

DWU even helps qualifying students prepare for future careers through internships and work study programs.

To apply for admission to DWU, the following items must accompany the enrollment application:

  • ACT or SAT scores
