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!
California State University Dominguez Hills is a very special school. All the professors and faculty pay attention to you and help you individually. The clubs are awesome and there is always something to celebrate. If I were to be sent back in time, I would still choose Dominguez Hills again!
