What do you love most about DWU?: I have an incredible love for theatre and I want to share that passion with students as well as training students in an environment that fully supports the arts. Dakota Wesleyan is a wonderful supporter of the arts and at DWU students can hone their talents and they can reach the fullest expression, depth, and knowledge of theatre.
