Situated in Belmont, CA, the Notre Dame de Namur University is a private institution and third oldest college in California. The university was the first in California to grant a bachelor’s degree to a woman. NDNU is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church and is both a Hispanic-serving and an Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-serving institution.
NDNU is a great school for those who like close-knit environments and love to make great personal connections with students, professors, and administrators. It is located in the resourceful Bay Area, and there are many resources available to students on campus, while professors and administration are available and flexible to help students at any time (average student-teacher ration = 12:1) - appointments aren't always necessary. This small university is very active in the community, and the student population is growing; more and more students are starting to flock to the less crowded, easy access, private universities such as Notre Dame de Namur.
