Dixie State University President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld Announces Plans to Retire Next Year
Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld, the 17th President of Dixie State University, announced Wednesday that he will retire as president at the end of the institution's 2013-14 academic year.

Nadauld, 71, made the formal announcement to DSU faculty and staff during a meeting held in the Browning Resource Center Dunford Auditorium. The announcement concludes a brilliant career in higher education, including nearly six years at the helm at Dixie State.

"After much deliberation, and with the twin emotions of elation at the experience and sadness at the thought of it ending, I have concluded that I should announce my retirement from the university," Nadauld said. "As I have thought about how this presidency at Dixie has been an incredible capstone to a long career, I am filled with gratitude to all who have made it possible and so enjoyable.

"In the meantime, please know that I will be forever grateful for this extraordinary experience, during which we have grown to love the students, faculty, staff, alumni, community, and all with whom we have associated," Nadauld added. 
University Avenue
In October the St. George city council voted to add the name "University Avenue" to 700 East.   With most of 700 East running along the edge of Dixie State's campus this is a great tribute to add to our "Year of Firsts"! Come and see us on 225 S. University Avenue!!
Men's Basketball 
PHOENIX, Ariz. - Dixie State was picked as the preseason favorite to win the Pacific West Conference, and Zach Robbins (Upland, CA/Upland) was selected as the preseason Player of the Year according to a coaches' vote released Thursday by the league. Dalton Groskreutz (Santa Clara, UT/Snow Canyon) was also selected on the All-PacWest Preseason Team.
The Red Storm received nine of 13 first-place votes to take the top spot with 165 points. Fresno Pacific (136) edged BYU-Hawaii (135) for second place while both teams received a first-place vote. Chaminade ranked fourth in the vote followed by Azusa Pacific, California Baptist and Hawai'i Pacific to round out the top half of the predicted order.
