DSUSA is proud to announce we will be bringing back the Food Packaging Event with United Way Dixie as our Campus to Community event this semester. We would like to invite you to come out on February 13th, 2018 at 4:00 PM in the Gardner Center to join us in hand-packaging 100,000 meals to donate to our local SwitchPoint Community Resource Center. This is the one of the biggest service projects of the semester and we need your help to make it happen!

Teams of 10 people will make up a packaging station. You are more than welcome to assemble your own team, or sign-up as an individual and we will assign you to a team. We ask that any and all volunteers please sign-up using the following OrgSync link: https://orgsync.com/35438/forms/301919

If you are the team leader, or an individual volunteer, we ask that you show up 30 minutes early at 3:30 PM ​for volunteer check-in and to pick up your t-shirts (That’s right, everyone gets a T-Shirt!)

​Hope to see you there!

This is a great way to expand the mind and keep on learning!

Thank you!

Spend Spring Break immersed Utah’s “Mighty Five!”

Travel over Spring Break to all five national parks and some national monuments and state parks as well. This is an excellent way to travel with a geologist to learn about our local treasures and participate in “Active Learning, Active Life” here at DSU. In addition to enjoying the beautiful scenery, you will experience geologic processes shaping the landscape, interpret past environments/climates that created the resources utilized by society, and observe first-hand how our Earth has changed through geologic time and, in fact, is ever-changing.

This eight-day/seven-night field trip leaves St. George Saturday, March 10 and returns Saturday, March 17, traveling in a DSU motor coach. Register for GEO 1055-01, CRN 21574 for one credit and pay the lab fee of $675 which includes transportation, lodging (double occupancy), entrance and most meals by February 1st. Single occupancy lodging available for an additional fee of $350. This is a real bargain for this inclusive trip. There are some seats still available!
