Madison

It's a small school where pretty much everybody knows one another. The campus is nice, but there is a limited amount of majors to choose from. People are friendly and I feel "safe" walking on campus. Food selections on campus are limited and I wish my Panther Point "currency" would be accepted at more locations near campus.

i really like Ohio Dominican so far. The teachers are always willing to help you even outside class. The environment is great too and everyone here is so friendly and if you need help you can ask anyone and they will help you with no problem. It is easy to get to your classes and the classes are good size.

A very well rounded university that offers a variety of academic and athletic opportunity for all student life. I fully believe that this college is a very friendly place and gives a full sense of community and family. The small classrooms and beautiful facilities really make this place a home away from home!

Margaret

Ohio Dominican University is a place that students feel welcomed to come. It's filled with many academic programs and a variety of professions. Our class sizes range from 12- 24 but usually not more than that. Everyone has the chance to build close intimate relationships with their professors and peers which is something that not all colleges can account for. The only downfall to coming here could include the fact that most students are involved in athletics on campus so those that don't play sports can feel left out at times. As for the athletic program, our coaches are always working to be better and encourage our students to be students before athletes. Our school is Catholic although I don't really feel a strong sense of religion through the campus life, I would encourage students to become more involved with the church community and motherhouse. Overall, Ohio Dominican University is an amazing place to be and I can't wait to see all that the students accomplish in life after graduation.
