At Dominican, class sizes are, at most, twenty students per teacher; however, if you plan to major in nursing (a competitive major), be sure to expect classes of at least fifty students.

    Itâ??s a very diverse college with very welcoming students, and faculty. From the day I applied through to the day of move in it was a smooth process. The admissions department took a lot of stress off of the enrollment process.

    It has a lot of plants on campus. Some people try to help you more than others. The tuition is way too high.

    I can't believe I hadn't heard of DU until recently! The campus is GORGEOUS - location is AWESOME - and on our tour, I couldn't believe the facilities for their nursing program; it immediately shot to the top of my list. I just applied & am on pins & needles waiting for response.

    DU definitely has a small school feel on a beautiful campus, so you get to know your classmates and professors very well. There is a lot of support for people of all backgrounds; it is obvious that the staff wants you to succeed. I would recommend getting involved in different activities in order to meet more people.

    Dominican staff is very helpful and nice and offer a lot of assistance to students. The low teacher to student ratio allows the students to maintain contact and support from teachers. This school offers a great environment to study with many calming areas to relax and focus on school.

    Dominican is very diverse and it is a small community. Class sizes are small and professors know your name. The campus is beautiful as well surrounded by trees in Marin county.

    Very straight-forward to the students. The financial-aid is always accurate and helpful if there is an error. The professors are all willing to make every student their top priority and show dedication.

    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.
