What I've enjoyed from NDNU is the fact that the school is so small. Because it is so small, each student is able to stay in touch with their professors and actually have a one on one relationship with each professor. One thing I would change would be the level of hardness each class is, it is very easy to pass without a challenge.

The school tries making you graduate quick(4 years) but should consider making dorms and buildings better by fixing heaters/furniture, etc.
The dorms in the campus are great. My freshman year I had two roommates and we had the biggest dorm because the other students had one roommate opposed to us that had two. We keep our room clean and we also had a bathroom on our hall so we had to walk out of our room to use it. The people that cleaned the bathroom did a good job and they cleaned it everyday between 12pm-1pm. The housing process as easy in that I choose the lowest form of paying for housing. I payed about $3,200 per semester for having 3 people inside my dorm including me. If you had 2 people in your dorm including you, it costs $4,179. If you lived in an apartment with another person you could pay $4,978. Finally if you lived in a single room, you would pay $4,868. The social atmosphere was great because there are males in females living in your hall and you get to have events like watch movies, go the the theaters, go bowling, or even go to a san francisco giants game. I personally liked living on campus my first year, but like I lived less than 10 miles away from campus, I would drive my second year at the university.
