At DSU, we want our students not only to succeed academically, but also to have a safe, fun and memorable experience in the United States.
Utah has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the United States (42nd lowest), and St. George (along with the nearby cities of Santa Clara, Ivins, and Hurricane) are among the safest cities in Utah. DSU also has a police force dedicated to serving the campus, and is ranked in the top 40 safest campuses in the United States.
