Dillard University Reviews
Traveling to a different state for school wasn't easy for me. Leaving my family and learning to live on my own really set me apart from my comfort zone. Because Dillard is a smaller HBCU, I felt at home being there. I was always comfortable. My dorm was clean, physically up to date, and accommodating. The food is good, of course after being there for a couple months you will get tired but it is not bad at all. At least there is a selection and its tasteful. Campus is SAFE, it is gated and we have "top flight" security. I can actually say that professors at Dillard are great, they really care about your well being. It is always important to get to know your professor, make a good impression so that when scholarship come around they have no problem writing recommendations for you. I can't say enough about my HBCU, you'll have to take a visit some day!
My Dillard University experience was challenging, rewarding, fulfilling, and world-class! Dillard prepared me for bright and brilliant future. I would not been as successful as I have if it was not for the dedicated and challenging professors, the rich community, and my astute, creative, and unique fellow students. Furthermore, New Orleans is a phenomenal city in which to learn; the culture, arts, living history, and politics were a laboratory of sorts!
I'm a junior transfer student from a community college, this is my first semester here at Dillard's University so far it is a very nice school, I enjoy the professors I have because they are very eager to help you, also Dillard University has a more older crowd and younger generation too, but I feel very comfortable by being boldet than 35 and returning to a university after 20 years, I love the campus and staff is very helpful, security is scarce you can't really see them unless you just happened to see them sitting in a car ,this is due to construction taking place now on campus, but overall it's a very good school for someone looking to get a BSN or Masters degree.
