Summer Student Life

Summer offers a unique time for friendship and fellowship at Dallas International University. Although we’re learning entirely by remote this year, we have extracurricular events planned for fun, relaxation and to learn more about each other.

Chapel: Transform will be held by Zoom, 1:25-2:20 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer term. On Friday evenings, we will gather (remotely) in “Community Groups.” 

Watch for other opportunities to connect with your fellow students!
