| If you are not a devote Mormon then DO NOT COME HERE!!!! I have lived in the area for a many years and so I knew the college was primarily Mormon but if you come from out of state then you do not know this. You can be an outcast if you do not attend all the religious activities ON campus. |
Most of the staff are not here to help you but to just put you off or tell you that its not their job. The tutoring center is staffed only by students, no special requirements to be a tutor, so not much help if you are an upper level student. The people in financial aid are horrible and really do not seem to care about the student and often give the incorrect advice!
Our area pretty much rolls up the sidewalks at 9 pm so there is nothing for the students to do and boredom sets in really quickly. Students have to travel an hour and go to Nevada to go to a night club. Campus activities are only during the day and are mostly geared toward people of the Mormon faith.
There are some really good professors at the school but you have to really choose carefully. The math department is really lacking in good professors. You CAN NOT even get a degree in Chemistry at the college yet all the classes for the degree are offered!!!!

| Let me start with the good things; DSC is cheap and St. George is warm. That's it! This school is absolutely awful! It's a Mormon community so everyone is extremely close-minded. It's also a Mormon-run school, which they don't bother telling anyone until they get in. There is no night life in town, everything is closed by 9. The only school events worth being apart of are some intramural sports. If you're not part of the Mormon cult, do EVERYTHING in your power to keep any of your teachers from ever knowing, otherwise you WILL fail the course. Also, many of the teachers speak very little English, and they were only hired because the school gets money for hiring foreign teachers. Stay away from the dorms too, they were condemned in 2007-2008 and yet they're still in use (illegally). They are infested with bugs (roaches, huge spiders, all sorts of creepy-crawlies) and black mold. Make the right choice now, and DO NOT come to this school!! |

| I was an ambassador for the college during my freashman year and spent most of my free time promoting the school. This ended after i found out what a horrible place this really is. Little attention is paid to the students they are a pay check. Campus life is non existant. This college has turned into an exostential hell hole due to the staff. Their only motivation is turning this school into a university and they couldnt care less how the students feel. Once while working FOR the school (we decorated the windows for homecoming week)I was called in the next day and spoken to by a man (not sure of his actual title) but he was threatening to charge me with MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS OF VANDALISM!! This along with the overall attitude of dixie state college has made me go from "hey everyone come to dixie state college its cheap and personal" to what i am now a miserable sophmore who is stuck in a system (p.s. dont EVER listen to anyone in the counciling center their only motivation is to keep you here and if that involves telling you that your credits transfer when in all reality they dont, THEY WILL!) Dont trust anyone in the AMBASSADORS i was kicked out for speaking my mind and telling potential Students the TRUTH ABOUT DIXIE. If your a potential student or even a parent reading this review i am begging you to not make the same mistake i did by attending this college. o and if you are on a tour (lead by the ambassadors) ask them to see inside of the MACDONALD building its where 90 percent of youre classes will be and its a building i was told never to take anyone into on a tour o and when the tell you about the tutoring center take a lok at that too cause the help kids are recieving in there is anything but helpful -please listen -ZJH |
