Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative noetherian local ring and $ M$ be a finitely generated $ R$-module of infinite projective dimension. It is well-known that the depths of the syzygy modules of $ M$ eventually stabilize to the depth of $ R$. In this paper, we investigate the conditions under which a similar statement can be made regarding dimension. In particular, we show that if $ R$ is equidimensional and the Betti numbers of $ M$ are eventually non-decreasing, then the dimension of any sufficiently high syzygy module of $ M$ coincides with the dimension of $ R$.
