Student, Dixie State University, Class of 2017,
Many students at Dixie State University come from different backgrounds and different experiences that shaped them into the college students they are today. No two students are the same. Many DSU students chose Dixie because they have a love and passion for the outdoors. Some students were offered full ride scholarships because of their high school academic performance. High school athletes chose Dixie after being scouted. As for the rest, many students chose Dixie because it felt right. Therefore it is hard to narrow down exactly what each student was like in high school. Dixie is a diverse university in age. While I graduated in 2010 from high school, many of my classmates are returning students who graduated from high school in 1985. Because of the diversity, it is hard to pinpoint what a typical student was like in high school. However, the type of student that should attend DSU is someone who is ready to take charge of his or her education. The student should be driven and ambitious and unafraid to ask for assistance when they require it. Dixie State University students believe in themselves and value their education.
