Student Life

Success means something different to everyone. For us, it means watching our students grow and develop their skills. But growth doesn’t only happen in the classroom. So we provide plenty of opportunities for your student to get involved in a variety of clubs and organizations.

Campus participation allows students to sharpen leadership and teamwork skills, discover new interests, and make friendships that may last the rest of their life.

At Western Dakota Tech, we support each other, challenge each other, work alongside each other, and find new ways to have fun every day. We'll value your student, for their potential and for what they bring to our campus culture and community.
