  • One of the finest institutions of higher learning in the Midwest. Its small enough to give each student much access to teachers and professors, and big enough to get an education equal to any big city school. The sports teams are fun to watch and competitive, especially football, baseball, track, volleyball and softball, and they have a world class library. Great nursing school, too. The university is set in one of the nicest most picturesque towns in the midwest, Mitchell, South Dakota. We are from California and my daughter attended and played softball here, and it was a real character builder, a great positive life experience. We thought she would be lost here, but she fit right in. The winter only made her stronger, more exuberant and gave her a greater sense of belonging and involvement about her college career. She made many friends here. One of my childhood heroes, war hero, senator and presidential nominee, George McGovern, went to school here in the 40s and was a frequent visitor thereafter, where my daughter got to meet and speak with him in 2008. If any west coast high school scholars and/or athletes, especially from the Los Angeles, San Gabriel Valley, Riverside, San Berdoo, San Diego, Orange County, Bakersfield, Central Valley, Lompoc areas wish to attend college out of state, I highly recommend Dakota Wesleyan. Their sports teams are in the NAIA and they get to travel all over and the coaches are Tip Top. The locals welcome you like a long lost relative. If you are a minority, they welcome you with open arms. Nothing but good people here. The dorms here are pretty nice, like colleges anywhere, and the campus and surrounding neighborhoods are safe. Parents, dont be worried about sending your kids here. You cant beat a great education in a great college in a nice small town. GO TIGERS!!!! P.S., My daughter, an inner city girl from California, got to help out on a cattle round-up on her teammates parent's ranch while on winter break. Where else can you get that type of experience, folks?
