Dominican College of Blauvelt Reviews
Although Dominican College has its flaws, the college overall is a wonderful place to explore yourself and build character. When I first arrived, I was one of the students who hated participating in event, did not support any sports, nor had interest in making friends. Now, I have a leadership position, host my own events, and have made irreplaceable friends. If you're someone who is shy, or finds school spirit "stupid", then this college will challenge that mindset. The school is small so everyone knows everyone, but if you're looking for a place to shine then this a good place for it. However, you'll have to work for it. The staff and professors have a wide variety of personalities; some genuinely want to help students succeed, and some don't care otherwise. And if you are looking for a party college, this is not the place. Even though it offers a lot of aid, depending on your grades, the cost may be a lot. Paying thousands to party isn't worth it.
Everyone in the Education program is great! Outside of that, it's okay. I would recommend it but the tuition is insane.
As a freshman at Dominican College, I can say that I do not regret attending this school and I can see myself completing all four academic years at this institution. One thing that I would change at Dominican College if it were possible is the location of the campus as well as the student life. Most students here do go home on the weekends and there is not much to do around campus unless a vehicle is available to you. However, once you develop a group of friends a feel for the campus you do not ever get truly bored here.
