Campus Life

How do I have fun?

Life at DWU can be fun and exciting. Outside of studying, there are many ways to be involved in student activities and clubs. The gorgeous DWU campus offers loud and quiet hang out
spaces for time with friends. DWU hosts a variety of different student activities
each week
, and student organizations are always welcoming new members. 
So, if you’re bored it’s only because you want to be.
