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.
Review Notre Dame de Namur University
The quality of the courses offered at the school is great. The professors challenge you in thinking about how you would process a text. The class styles are different depending on the class that you are taking. I took a class that was called Lit Review, and in every class we had a seminar and we talked about the poems that we were reading and asked questions to the class as well as examine the different parts of the poem. In other classes the professors lecture for an entire class and we just take notes. Overall the are great and it also depends on the class that you are taking to see the different class styles. The class sizes is excellent because there are not more that 18 students per class unless its a class like biology of chemistry that has a class size of not more that 30.
My favorite experience from this school is that I am able to make friends fast and be able to be with them is some classes because there is not a lot of students in the university. I like how the school has less than 30 students in a class and you are able to learn and understand the professor without being distracted. However, no school is perfect. On occasions the wifi of the school will shutdown and we could not go on to the internet for eight hours. Living at the school was also has its perks, but the fire alarm will go on in the middle of the night waking me up. I will recommend living at school for a year to get the experience of living there, but if you live within 20 miles of the school I would recommend to commute.
