What do you love most about DWU?: I love the community and small college aspect of Dakota Wesleyan. Rarely will you find a union between administration, faculty, staff, and students that are so tightly knit. The "family" aspect is real on both ends of the spectrum. You will have loads of support in the similarities you have and on the other side mutual respect for varying personal views.
