Dominican has a very helpful and caring staff that go out of their way to help us get through college. I can tell they actually care about where we go after college and do a good job in preparing us for the real world. Not to mention the campus is beautiful and the atmosphere is very mature but fun at the same time.

At Dominican University you're a family. Although the school is small you will meet tons of new people and make great friends. You will make your own family there and have the chance to create some great memories and experience countless new things.
