Very hard to get a clear understanding of what things are owed(tuition)& what classes are necessary(advising). Youll have to make several appearances at the financial aid office to get clarity on bill. Very small campus & doesnt have all the resources it should; can seem over priced. Dorms were poorly constructed, has very thin walls & ONE bathroom per FL for everyone to share. When all resident buildings(only 3)get full they put students in a near by hotel for the semester/year. Only have one dining hall & a small café. Dry campus not much of a "party scene". Many people get violations if theres too many people in a room, if theres any alcohol found, or if theres a complaint of noise. Besides STAC & the Palisades Shopping Mall, there isnt anything else to look forward to in the local area. You'll need a car to get around because not all the roads have sideways or bike paths.
Review Dominican College of Blauvelt
Being a student at Dominican college has been a favorable experience of mine I enjoy the many activities offered to the students it's really gotten me involved on campus. Also, I truly enjoy the 15 to 1 ratio in classrooms the teachers really do know you by your name and not just a number. I feel Dominican College is preparing me for after I graduate and become a teacher. This is truly a homey and welcoming college that I would recommend to any person who wants to be a name and get the best experience possible.
I love my school. I am a part of the women's lacrosse and soccer programs and I could not be happier. I have learned so many lessons and have had many helpful experiences from all of my teammates, coaches, teachers and peers. I love how personable the teachers are and how they really get to know you!
