Notre Dame de Namur University Reviews
Great university if you love small and intimate class sizes. The university is a catholic university but as well a commuter school which means many of the students are commuters. The university does a lot of community work which is really amazing helping and giving back to the community. NDNU is located in Belmont CA, which is a very low-key area but it has easy access to San Francisco and San Jose. The school has a good sports program, men and women's soccer are wonderful to watch as well as men and women's basketball and men's lacrosse. Men's and women's cross country always does well, the university has added men and women track and field so the sports scene has grown which makes student life better.
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.
