4 College Freshman

Parking: The parking is very convenient and close to the campus. The permits are free and thee tickets are generally twenty dollars if you park in a restricted zone. There are always available parking spaces in the parking lot.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Dakota Wesleyan Is great about giving scholarships to kids who have earned them. They strive to makes their students excellent and they want every kid here to have an equal chance at that.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety of students is very well. We haven't had any incidents on campus involving safety. It is a very small, secure campus. Everyone looks out for each other. Its very easy to make friends and its a very enjoyable place to be.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: The life on campus is anything but boring here at Dakota Wesleyan! The campus is small, but there are always fun activities and events planned for the students to do. The Rollins is neat place for students to hangout and do homework. Every Thursday there is chapel from eleven to noon. There is a new state of the art science building. There are lots of organizations to join to get more involved in with college life.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am a Freshman so I don't really know what to expect but I am liking school so far and the faculty is really nice. The workload is not as much as I expected it to be but I am not taking very hard classes this year as I am just a first year student. There are lots of job opportunities for my major and I am looking forward to getting into the program, as we start it our sophomore year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Some places in Mitchell to eat are really nice but others are cheap places that aren't very healthy. The restaurants that are nice are always expensive and you don't have a lot of money to eat out all the time when you are in college so I don't go out much.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It is nice to live on campus since it is a small one and I can walk to every one of my classes. Our dorms are very small and I like that I get to know everyone on my floor. The cost is kind of spendy so that is about the only thing that is bad about it and the bathrooms are kind of dirty most of the time, but other wise it is nice to live on campus.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The drug scene at Dakota Wesleyan is not that big but it depends on who you are talking to. I don't see it being a problem very often but I don't do drugs or alcohol.

3 College Freshman

Computers: we have great computers, a lab full of apple computers but sometimes bad connection

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: not many parties around here, alot of study groups

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: alot of great people hear, different type of people

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors teaching the criminal justice and human services courses have great knowledge and stories from their own experiences! They are great teachers.

3 College Senior

Parking: There are usually decent places to park. They will fill up quick though.

3 College Senior

Academics: I dislike some of the religion classes offered as they are very difficult and some professors tend to grade off of their own opinions. Would have prefered a non-religious public school.

Greek Life: I cannot fully grade this school appropriately yet as I have only been at the school one semester in an online class.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Outdated Buildings – the school is remodeling and building new classrooms. much needed

5 College Senior

Nightlife: The Average Town – The school offers many nightlife activities like movies and bowling. The town offers parties and clubs

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Back in November, people broke in to many dorms and stole alot of items. DWU was on top of it. They contacted police and many of the items were returned back to the right owners. These people were charged with a crime and were kicked out of school.

Diversity: Campus Melting Pot – I feel that Dakota Wesleyan does a good job of bringing in a variety of religions and races. For example, many teams have players from other states or even countries. The golf team has players from England. There are also many different religions, and the chapel does not discriminate; all people are always welcome!

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The Same Old – There are only a few options for meals, such as the sandwich bar, pizza section, and the casserole and hot meal area. They typically serve the same thing every week. There are other fast food places and sit downs around campus, such as McDonalds, Ruby Tuesday's, and Subway. I suggest buying food for your room and a small meal plan.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: So Much Homework, Few Things to Do – Mitchell is a smaller town, with few sit-down restuarants and other activities. It does have a larger high school and a technical college. There is little shopping, but most residents seem to appreciate the positive affects college students have on the Mitchell community. Mitchell includes the world's only Corn Palace, which is pretty cool if you have never visited it before!

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Small School, Small Travel – Dakota Wesleyan University is such a small school, everything is within walking distance, even in snow, rain, and sleet. The enrollment is only about 720 students, so the two dorms and the apartments are within easy distance of the food, classes, and offices. When all else fails, the taxi service in Mitchell is good about coming and going from the campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: DWU Is the Town – Dakota Wesleyan University is the center of Mitchell, SD. There isn't much else around. There is the world's only Corn Palace. Outside dining options include a few family restaurants, a couple of fast food joints, and Walmart. There isn't much outside options, but what there is to eat, is good food.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: Mcgovern Library – Our library was built a few years back. The facilities are kept clean and in nice condition. We have a little cafe in the library and plenty of study rooms available. There are multiple lavatory facilities around the library, and classrooms. The staff of McGovern Library is very friendly and courteous to students of Dakota Wesleyan and the public.
