Dominican University is a good school because they are always trying to make you feel welcomed as well as helping you learn. The teachers are always there to help you out when you are struggling and are willing to tutor you as well. As well as your classmates, they are always there to help you out due to the class rate they have.
I'm currently a freshman and I'm glad in my decision to come here. Although it's not a big school, since the campus is concentrated, it always seems like there's people everywhere. I always feel safe on campus. The longer I'm here, the bigger the school feels because of all the events happening everywhere.
From the moment I stepped foot on campus, I felt a sense of ease and comfort. I knew that I could feel at home there and I loved all the amenities they had for everything. The campus may seem big, but it was just the perfect size to make me feel like I belonged there.
It really is a great school. The staff are very cordial and they are available to attend to both academic and non academic needs. It is a sanctuary campus with a beautiful scenery not too far from Chicago. The staff to student ratio is about 12 to 1..one of the best things for me is that, Dominican university is not too big, neither is it too small, a great atmosphere for me to learn in.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Dominican University is 63%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to really get in the habit of really putting time and effort into studying and doing homework, don't be afraid to make new friends, people don't bite., and stick with Arts, it's in your blood and you know it's something you love.
Because Dominican University is a small, liberal arts school, there is a lack of involvement and sponsorship of the sports teams; therefore, there are fewer ways for the students to come together and support a common goal, along with sustaining the school?s athletic teams. Dominican does not pride itself on its athletics; it seems that a certain aspect of excitement and enthusiasm to be involved is absent from the college atmosphere.
Academic advisor is great. Much more helper than my last college.
I find the location of Dominican University to be convenient and full of opportunities, I believe it is the best thing about the entire school. It is in a city with many various restaurants, stores, and other services. The Chicago area is filled with such a diverse population which also presents me, along with the other students, with a broad exposure to various ethnicities. Being in such a city and in close proximity of downtown Chicago, I will have many more opportunities to begin and advance my future career, opportunities that are unavailable in smaller cities and towns.
My school is small, diverse, open-minded, spirited, and academically enriching. The students and teachers are supportive, helpful, and friendly. The teachers push you hard to become a better learner and become proficient and well educated in your career.
Some one who loves to party
my classmates are very smart and give very good insite.
My school is best known for its diversity. In fact, there are a wide variety of ethnicities. Exchange students also make up a portion of the students at Dominican University. Diversity in my school is very important because it allows students to learn from other cultures and see other perspectives.
The best person for this school is someone who loves to help, kind, friendly and who really wants a school based on academics. This school is not a party school and you usually can find everyone in the library. At this university there are many volunteer opportunities. Students can do volunteer around Chicago or even around the world. Another great thing is for students who really need the interaction between students and professors. The classes are small and your professors definitely know you by your first name. There is a great communication.
For a smaller university, the beauty of the campus could compete with some of the most extravagant in the U.S. It has a charming and tranquil feel as a religion-based institution located in a lovely and historical city just outside of Chicago.
to take school more seriously and save enough money to pay for books and not to pull out loans, if i can't afford it then I probably should have considered a different school
The food served to the students can certainly improved a little bit.
