My experience at California State University of Dominguez Hills is great! I’ve been attending this university for 3 years and this campus and many of its programs have made me feel comfortable and at ease. For example, on campus I can visit a peer advisor who can help me remain on track for graduation and can help me choose the best classes that will be beneficial towards my major. At first, I was hesitant and afraid that I would be confused while attending a university, however; many of my questions have been answered by faculty at my college and the learning experience here at Dominguez is by far the best!

I love Dominguez Hills! I was looking for a diverse school located in the Los Angeles area and I found exactly that. DH may be a small school, but it is beneficial since a lot of people know each other. The professors at this campus interact a lot with students in classroom settings and even after you have taken their class for the semester. I am a resident at the dorms at DH and my experience has been amazing. Everyone is so welcoming and it can get really fun in the dorms. DH is not a large party school, but there are some things that go on at DH that students would hae fun attending. Guess you'd have to become a Toro to find out more!
Dominguez Hills has a very diverse faculty and student population. This makes for a very inclusive and equitable educational experience. The campus is beautiful and currently under construction for a new science building, and new dorms! Dominguez Hills is a hidden gem.
