Attending this college was the best decision I've ever made. I am very pleased with the quality of my education and the professors. I am enrolled in the Occupational Therapy BS/MS program and I have learned so much in the past 2 years. However, with the new president, there have been a lot of misplaced concern on what needs to be improved. The professors have been teaching without a contract for months which should be our administrations first priority. After that, the parking situation for this college made up of a majority of commuters should be addressed and the improving our existing buildings and facilities. New fields, gyms (for a D3 school), and other unnecessary expenses should be halted and priorities should be checked.

D'Youville is a smaller private school so you are not just a number sitting in a classroom. Each professor takes the time to build relationships with you, and you can tell they genuinely care and want you to do well. They offer many different programs and classes that can be tailored to your needs. It doesn't have that "college feel" in the sense that it isn't one giant campus. Our buildings are all spread out downtown, for example we have a nursing home in the middle of our campus. Parking isn't great either, but I feel like that is pretty common for a college. Overall I absolutely love D'Youville, yes it has its negatives, but the positives outweigh the negatives by a landslide, so I am very glad I made the decision I did.
D'Youville offers the highest quality education for all majors, including the health sciences. Their staff truly cares about how students perform, and they encourage their success. The small size of the institution fosters students' education.
