Dixie State University

D-Week

D-Week is Dixie State University’s 106-year-old celebration of tradition, community, and the pioneering spirit for which Dixie has become known.

The Dixie Spirit is thriving even during this time of uncertainty.  Throughout our history the community has pulled together around our school to foster education and growth. We are... Dixie Strong.

D-Week is being held virtually.

Dixie State University is committed to the health and safety of our students, alumni, and community members.  At this time, all University-sponsored events and mass gatherings are being canceled, rescheduled, or conducted remotely until further notice.

We are committed to keeping everyone informed. Updates will be posted frequently at the link below.
