Natalie - 04/26/2019

I love the small campus and family feel of NDC. I love that my professors know me as a person and not a number. It can be a little boring sometimes but there are a lot of ways to be involved on campus. Most of the students are athletes or involved in many ways on campus.

Courtney - 04/16/2019

Notre Dame college is an amazing college. It allows students to interact with one another and the classes are smaller. This allows for more one on one time if needed and helps with time and collecting more information. You definitely get your money worth here at NDC!

Tia - 06/27/2018

So far I have no opinion on Notre Dame College because I haven't started yet but I do think any Notre Dame College is great. Also because I've always wanted to go to Notre Dame or be apart of Notre Dame, I personally think it's one of the best colleges because everyone wants to go there and their also really good in sports which is the main thing I look at when it comes to colleges.

Kay - 06/15/2018

I went to this school only because I couldn’t get into Akron university right away due to financial aid. I wish I would have just not went for fall semester and started at Akron in the spring. Campus life is boring and the food is usually disgusting, very rare to have something good in the dining hall. They’re very money hungry although tuition is already very expensive.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would strongly encourage myself to start college right away. I would have told myself to finish college before starting a family and to go ahead and be the first one in my family to be a college graduate. If I had known how hard it is now as a parent of three children I would have told myself to graduate from college and start my career as a teacher before becoming a parent. I would have told myself the task of being a college student and a parent at the same time will be the most difficult task you will ever take on. If I would have known back then what I know now about college life and how rewarding it is to be college graduate I would have also told myself to listen to my grandmother when she told me to start colllege and not to stop until I graduated!
