Dominguez Hills has paved the road for my physical therapy career. The kinesiology department is great! They are a huge help with how to prepare yourself for graduate schools, and what are some things you can achieve to heighten your name. I hardly had any trouble with getting the classes I needed, and luckily I haven't encountered any unprofessional professor.

Small class sizes makes for more individual attention. Unfortunately it also means limited class availability, and if there's a teacher who doesn't work for you, too bad - theyre the only one teaching several major requirements!
What I like about Dominguez Hills is it's diversity. Many students in Dominguez Hills were not just your traditional college aged students. I have met students and alumni who were dedicated and serious about their courses, grades, and studying. Dominguez Hills offers a number of student services like tutoring, placement service, health service and health insurance. Dominguez Hills also offers campus safety and security services to help ensure safety for students. Overall, I'm having a great experience so far in Dominguez Hills.
