Dominguez Hills truly lives up to its statement as being an affordable university with quality education. The teachers are phenomenal and really do work with students. The counselors will check in to make sure you're finishing requirements or need some assistance graduating. Dominguez has good athletic teams and offer a variety of sports/sport classes. The campus has emergency call booths located everywhere and campus police offer late-night chaperons services. The dorms are spacious. It has it's own community which is great. Student life is amazing. Events happen all the time throughout the semester. The campus food is okay. You're better off packing a lunch or cooking in the dorms. Parties are usually a school organized event or someone hosting it in the dorms. The local area around campus makes up for the campus food, and the StubHub is a walk away for anyone interested in sports, concerts, or political rallies such as the Bernie Sanders rally held last year.
Review California State University - Dominguez Hills
Our school has a program that's called ETE, similar to the EOP program, and it's incredibly helpful. Freshmen stay in this program in order to get proper guidance from our own peer mentor and advisor during our first two years of college. I absolutely love this program, along with all of the help, they're incredible people willing to do whatever they can to make our college experience the absolute best! During finals week, the school hires people to give free massages and they have a puppy center come and relieve our stress by playing with the puppies! I would definitely choose this school if I did it all over again, I think many people don't give it the credit it truly deserves.
At first I was just attending the University until I had the opportunity to meet amazing professors and students that allow you to thrive and achieve your degree! I had the chance to visit many places as an undergraduate at CSU Dominguez Hills, which is something I would have never expected.
