Founded in 1890 by the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael, the Dominican University of California is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the state. The private university is located at the base of San Pedro Mountain and operates a satellite campus in Mendocino County, CA. The school is home to an Ansel Adams photography collection, enameled terracotta sculptures created by the Della Robbia family, and the Forest Meadows Amphitheater. Admissions are “selective.”
Dominican University of California was worth every penny, although I did receive substantial scholarships and grants from the institution. The campus is beautiful, and situated in a great neighborhood in San Rafael. The faculty is amazing.
Dominican is a great school for those focused on academics.
