Student Life

Life on the DWU campus is about balance. Balance between spontaneous fun with friends and organized student activities. Balance between academics and leisure time spent watching athletics, hanging out in the residence halls or recreation on the campus grounds. Balance between exploring the new opportunities you’re faced with and maintaining a spiritual, physical and mental wellness.

Student Life is here to help you find that balance.

Our Vision
The Department of Student Life seeks to empower you to take ownership of your future by providing you opportunities, in a Christian-centered community, to develop your character, identify your strengths and gain an understanding of the global community.

Our Mission
The Department of Student Life provides services, activities and resources that will enrich your experience and enhance your intellectual, personal, professional and social development.
