D-Week | Destination: Dixie


The “D” on the black hill has overlooked St. George since 1915. This year marks the 101st Anniversary and D-Week will be one of the largest celebrations yet at Dixie State University! Come with your family and friends and enjoy a week packed full of fun celebratory events! The “D” on the hill is traditionally red during homecoming and D-week.
