4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors all have great credentials for their topics

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My Accounting advisor is very active in helping students

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is great, it is when the students go off campus that the problems occur

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a light sleeper so living in the dorms is not ideal for me

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are no greek housing available and I don't think there is a Greek life club

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Almost every student that attends Dakota Wesleyan is involved in some sport, sometimes multiple.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Dakota Wesleyan is small and almost every student is involved in some way

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Our gen ed classes have 20-25 students. Depending on your major there are class sizes of 5-6 students. The small class sizes holds the student and the professors more accountable. It also assures we can slow down or speed up the course depending on the students needs.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: We do a lot of hands on projects, where we integrate what we are learning in the classroom into a project in the community. I love the opportunity of getting to work with organizations in my field of study. I am very confident I will find a job post graduation or at least have a quality enough resume to get into graduate school.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Perks of a small town and a small campus, Dakota Wesleyan is a very safe space to be. I still lock my car doors at night, but I can leave my door room unlocked and never fear walking home from the library at midnight.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The vibe of the freshman dorms are amazing. Doors are open, there are always opportunities to socialize. Upper classman dorm, it is still clean and welcoming, but doesn't have the same freshman energy..

4 College Junior

Athletics: Basketball and football games are great to go to, both teams are fairly successful. Some of our more successful sports on campus don't draw a huge fan base, but they bring in a lot of wins - golf and track.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Staff and faculty will go out their way for you. The don't treat you like just another student paying their paycheck, in no time you become family. The faculty goes out of their way to make it to sporting events, musical concerts,and theater performance.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Throughout my time at Dakota Wesleyan University, I have seen sicknesses come through the dorms, and have even seen death visit the dorms. However, it is of paramount importance to point out how these unavoidable things were dealt with. They were dealt with professionalism and speed. Campus security is tight as to provide safety but not so tight as to restrict your lifestyle. The police are always ready to come and take care of a situation if the need be, but in the end, it's not needed because the community of the college regulates itself.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes which are offered by the school encourage a sense of adventure! They challenge you to try new things and to explore new avenues of yourself. There is such a variety that you can take classes that are all in your specialty field and yet still cover most of your Gen-Eds. The professors are there for you. They don't grade down in you disagree with them and they are willing to be flexible with how the class learns and completes projects.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Dakota Wesleyan University has a placement rate for its students into real-world jobs that's in the 90th percentile. It is almost guaranteed that when you graduate you will find a job. But then you will also be part of a huge network of alumni which talk and get back together frequently. You truly never leave the DWU family.

Campus Housing: Although the buildings are not all the newest, they have been maintained nicely and provide - surprisingly - nice living quarters. The housing helps to cultivate togetherness among the residences of the halls and helps to make a family out of them. Campus Housing also forces you to learn how to deal with others and how to get through trying situations.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is truly non-existent at Dakota Wesleyan University, but that is somewhat a good thing. Although once a part of the campus, Greek Life's absence has lead to a new unity in the school and has helped bring the students together as a single, equal student body.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics is an important part of the Student Body of Dakota Wesleyan University and the school has responded to that. A great multitude of sports are offered to students and brand new facilities are being opened for the betterment of the teams and of the students. What is even better is that Athletics does not dominate the entire school. Most activities are viewed in the same light and generate similar attendances.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Dakota Wesleyan University is one of the finest small schools in the nation. It provides ample opportunities to explore and grow in your major and provides assistance to make sure that you have the tools to succeed in your field. The staff are ready to be there for you and help you through the college experience. If you have questions, they are eager to help answer them. The Student Life and Activities Board both work tirelessly to make sure that the students are looked after and that they have opportunities to grow and develop friendships. Best of all, DWU has the air of a Christian School. You will not find a school more devoted to the Christian Faith and to the Church.
