Dominican University Reviews
Dominican University is an incredible institution that allows for each student to have a uniquely intimate and personal academic experience. With a total of 3,900 students, the student-teacher ratio is superb and truly promotes students being able to build personable relationships with their professors. Located in the beautiful community of River Forest, Dominican's campus is picturesque and reminds you of an East cost Ivy. My only complaint is the cost; with tuition fees at $31, 720/yr (not including Room & Board), one can definitely expect to get their money's worth!
It is a community college disguised as a university. They slowly are making improvements in the renovations but it's nothing fast enough to notice a real difference. I took courses for computer science and 90% of the professors are unprofessional or seem unqualified to teach. Whether it be constant yelling, losing your homework and deducting points for their mistake or arriving late and keeping students late, it is definitely not worth that specific programme. The food is barely tolerable, the classrooms are small, the tuition is rising and the social life in non existent.
Dominican University is a great school to attend. It is very diverse, containing a wide amount of people from all over the world! The school provides free tutoring, free fun events, excellent teachers and so on. While attending Dominican, I've been able to make new friends with ease and learn about the school itself. It's an awesome place to learn.
