Why I came to Dixie
You see, It isn't simply the towering, heated red rock of Saint George, or the year-round sunshine that makes Dixie warm. It is the people that bring the real warmth that I love to Dixie. Whether it is a genuine smile from a student while walking through campus, or the Professors' ability to maintain a professional atmosphere while also incorporating hands on learning techniques, or even just a trip to local Larsen's Drive in for my favorite shake; Dixie State University has always had that element of genuine warmth I am looking for.
