I have been attending this school and so far the teachers, staff and fellow students have been great! I have a drive because I live in Orange county but that just makes me want to work that must harder in order to make my experience as memorable and accomplish all I can while I am there. The school is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good education as well as great experience!
Review California State University - Dominguez Hills
As a 54-year-old disabled student transfer from Los Angeles City College. I was interviewed and accepted by numerous universities (UCLA, USC, CSULA, CSULB, CSUDH) qualifying with my overall GPA of 3.57.
However, the manner in which the California State University Dominguez Hills "Disabled Student Office" received me was exceptional. Spent quality time with its director as he inquired extensively about my "mental disability." Special needs are required to succeed, (tutoring, testing accommodation, personal attention, etc). The "Disabled Student Office," ultimately, inspired my academic choice and overall experience within the California State University at Dominguez has proven to be superb.
The campus is not large, so it is easy to get around and familiarize yourself quickly. Welch Hall provides many excellent resources for students. When you are having dificulty let's say with financial understanding then the financial aid department is more than happy to help!
