Notre Dame de Namur University Reviews
The professional staff at NDNU is very friendly and quite helpful with student's needs and concerns for financial aid packages. I am also happy with the mental health department how easy it is to talk to someone who really cares about student's mental health. What I love even more is the small classroom sizes. The university's grounds are quite beautiful - it reminds me of a scene from the fairytale books my mom read to me as a kid. Only this time, I am Snow white and I’m feeding an apple to a fawn. I’d recommend NDNU to incoming freshman.
The campus is gorgeous! It's in a good part of Belmont with close to shops and stores. Students are very helpful, staff as well. Professors really care about you and you can make appts. with them quickly. Notre Dame is a Catholic University, but all are welcome. There is a good atmosphere where you feel welcome.
Overall, the academics are very good at NDNU and it's easy to ask for help from all of the teachers because of the small classroom sizes. I've never encountered a rude or mean person on campus because mostly everyone is friendly. When you walk onto campus, there's a peaceful atmosphere and it has a boarding school feel. The new commuter lounge and the library are probably the best parts of campus, but I still wish there were more student events on campus for residents. My favorite part of Notre Dame is the support from your peers and teachers which make it easier to succeed and become successful. You'll definitely graduate in 4-5 years.
