April 21, 2023 | Sioux Falls Convention Center

Formerly known as the DSU Gala, DSUnite is a less formal twist on this Trojan tradition. Attendees can expect a night of socializing and camaraderie.

What to expect:

Different from years past, this event is meant to encourage moving around the room and socializing with fellow supporters. So more fellow Trojans can participate, there will be appetizers and other small bites throughout the night, rather than a sit-down, plated meal.

  • Silent & Live Auction
  • Time to reminisce with fellow Trojans
  • An inside look at the future of DSU
  • Stories from Dakota State students
  • Raising funds for student scholarships

DSU Giving Day connects Trojans from around the globe, connecting and uniting all to support our great institution. This is an annual event over DSU homecoming each fall where we call upon the Trojan community to donate to their preferred support area at DSU. This 12-hour event connects us all through an online day of giving. Be sure to show your Trojan Pride and RISE UP with us throughout the day - and check out the challenges and matches happening over the 12 hours. Go Trojans!
