Visit Campus

Welcome to Tiger Territory

The best way to determine whether DWU is the place for you is to visit. 

When you visit, one of our student ambassadors will guide your tour of campus. We have student-centered new academic and recreational buildings, our outdoor space is beautiful, and the people you meet will welcome you warmly to our community.

Your visit will also allow us to get to know you and how DWU can help you Discover Your Strength in one of our many programs. Shake hands with our professors and coaches, and get to know our diverse student body as you absorb what it means to be a Tiger.
