Tag: Dixie State College
Dixie State College in St. George, Utah, was founded in an area settled by Mormons from the South. The college used to have a Rebel as its mascot. A survey has found that most members of the community want the word "Dixie" to remain as part of the institution's name.
The college is in the midst of transitioning to university status. And since the name will be changed to reflect its new status as a university, critics are lobbying to remove the word "Dixie" from the name.
