A beautiful, small campus that you can work with others to the extreme. The size and closeness of the community of students accounts for more networking possibilities than ever. The diversity of students and great athletics system is everything you can ask for in a college. The professors are beyond excellent, a lot in which take personal interest that expands more than just the classroom, but for real life highlights such as internships and careers. We are located in a beautiful area near a mall and other essentials, very close to freeways that can be accessed at all times for convenience as well. Overall this is an amazing college!

California State University Dominguez Hills is a small school and easy to get around. It has friendly staff and motivated Professors that only want the best for their students. They have a big range of food options that fits everyone’s preference. Even though the campus is not as large as other schools CSUDH is currently under construction and is expanding little by little. One out of three large buildings has been completed. Two of the buildings will be for instruction and one will be for brand new dorms! Overall it is a friendly school with students from all around the world.
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!
