Join us for the next installment of Dixie State University’s weekly lecture series Dixie Forum: A Window on the World. This special Dixie Forum is a collaboration with the DSU Department of History and will serve as the inaugural History Distinguished Lecture for DSU’s Department of History and Political Science. Each year, the department will bring to DSU an accomplished historian, who has achieved national recognition in the discipline, to deliver the History Distinguished Lecture. In this wonderful inaugural collaborative event, we will examine the history of homesickness to offer a new way of understanding past societies and their priorities and values.



DSU is hosting the State of Utah Academic Decathlon on Thursday, March 8, and is requesting volunteer judges for interview and speech competition.  There will be an orientation at 3:30 p.m. and judging will be from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. with dinner provided.

The Academic Decathlon is the premier academic competition for high school students in the United States. Student decathletes from each high school compete in 10 different subject areas, 3 subjective (Speech, Interview, Essay), and 7 objective (Math, Music, Language & Literature, Social Science, Economics, Science, Art).

The Interview is a typical ‘business interview’ that lasts for 7 minutes. For the Speech portion, the students give a four-minute prepared speech and then are given one minute to prepare an impromptu speech.

This year 18 schools from across Utah are expected to participate in the State Competition.

Here is the link for any interested volunteers to sign up as judges.
