Dakota State University students walking around campus

Preparation + opportunity = success

That's the DSU equation. We're a four-year university with nationally recognized programs, cutting-edge facilities, and the brightest thinkers. But we're also a tight-knit, inclusive community. Small class sizes mean hands-on training and individualized attention. All this with an affordable, public school price that's among the best values in the region.

Join the DSU faculty led European tour

November 8, 2015

Have you ever thought you might like to see the Mona Lisa or the ancient city of Rome? During the spring 2016 semester, DSU students and community members have an opportunity to discover and appreciate European art and architecture from Paris to Rome.

The 10-12 day faculty led study tour is an excursion to the museums and architectural sites across Italy and France including the Louvre, Notre Dame and Museé d’Orsay in Paris, and the Accademia and Uffizi Galleries in Florence, the Colosseum, and Borghese gardens in Rome and the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, which is adorned with Michelangelo’s iconic Renaissance work, “The Creation of Adam.”

The focus of the DSU tour is for art and architecture, there will be copious amounts of time to soak in Europe’s exquisite food, fashion and culture. Students will travel worry-free with EF Educational Tours, who have been in the college study tour business for 50 years. This will be the fourth time DSU has offered the excursion. 

Students can enroll in Art292 for the upcoming 2016 spring semester and choose an art history or an art appreciation focus for three credits, or you can choose to take 1-3 credits of electives. 

For students wanting to learn more about the faculty-led European tour, weekly information meetings will begin Tuesday, Nov. 10 at noon in Room 330 in Beadle Hall on the DSU campus. Community members that would like to participate in the tour can attend a meeting at the Madison Public Library with Friends of the Library at a future today to be announced soon.
