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.
Review California State University - Dominguez Hills
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!
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.
