Summer Student Life

Summer offers a unique time for friendship and fellowship at Dallas International University. Although most students will not be joining us on campus, we have extracurricular events planned for fun, relaxation and to learn more about each other.

Transform (Chapel) will be held regularly throughout the summer, at a time yet to be determined.

Watch for other opportunities to connect with your fellow students!
