Dominican College of Blauvelt Reviews
Dominican College is a very diverse and inclusive college. Students are able to succeed academically and socially due to Dominicans tight knit community between the students and their professors. There are areas that need more improvement such as safety concerns and making club times and funding more feasible for the students. Dorms are a whole other story as well - some halls are kept cleaner than others due to the cleaning company being changed often on campus, which can become disruptive to the students trying to live and study in these dorm halls. Opportunities for jobs and internships are everywhere and thanks to the help of the school, many students have the chance to experience different jobs that will help them make connections and advance their futures. The area itself is also student friendly, with the Palisades mall only minutes away and there is a bus stop that goes to NYC right outside the campus. Dominican College is a wonderful school to visit and apply to.
The school handled the pandemic crisis pretty well. Professors and staff were prompt to help students with accommodations online and on campus as everyone was leaving home and the stress of many students sky rocketed. Overall, the school should now be better equipped for any other state emergency due to the pandemic and many students were very excited to start the upcoming semester on campus or online.
I am a transfer student and so far I'm loving the school! Its close too home, so I can go back whenever. The staff is very friendly and genuinely want to see you succeed
