What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
DWU offers many different activities to get people involved on campus such as Friday night movies, weekly chapel, and bringing in performers (i.e., hypnotist). I really enjoy the small community and how people are very friendly. The teachers and classes are just what I wanted- they challenge you and teachers are very helpful.

Dakota Wesleyan is a wonderful university! The campus exudes collaboration, strong ethics and is very focused on useful academics. They don't just have classes here to have classes, they all prepare you for your career in some fashion.
