5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love this school. It still has a community college feel while getting university level classes. There really isn't much partying or any nightlife but that works for me.

Overall Experience: Overall, so far the school is okay. Although there is a good student to teacher ratio. The buildings and classrooms should be updated.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my university! It is small and easy to get around. The professors are awesome and can be easily contacted. Fellow students are helpful and are eager to learn. In my Liberal Studies department, the staff are great and are always there to help you with whatever we need.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a great school, with great professors

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being that it is a commuter school, you can meet people from all over Los Angeles county. Academically sound and a great experience for one of the smaller campuses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far my experience has been incredible. Everything I expected pretty much happened. The people are so nice it is really soothing. The campus is also very beautiful I can't get over it.

Overall Experience: I feel like the campus is very small and far away from home. It makes it difficult to stay around because there isn't much to offer.

Overall Experience: The teachers really take time with their students. I wish the campus had more updated classrooms and buildings, but that doesn't affect the teachers or students. The application and acceptance process is quick and simple, compared to other schools. Everyone I've had contact with via the phone/email is extremely friendly and helpful. My favorite part about Cal State Dominguez Hills is the availability of classes. I got the exact schedule I wanted, with the teacher I wanted. In class, it's not crammed with as many students as possible, which allows the teacher to really teach their students. Overall, the school is great and I would recommend applying here to other prospective students.

Overall Experience: It does not cost as much as other universities. The ratio of students to professor is about 40:1. Campus size is just right and is easy to get around it. These are some of the reasons I chose California State University, Dominguez Hill.

Overall Experience: Professors at Dominguez Hills are very passionate about teaching and are always willing to make themselves available to their students.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As an undergraduate of Dominguez hills, some of my favorite experiences were exploring the campus and getting involved with clubs. My school could be considered unique because of the size of the campus. The campus of Dominguez Hills, in my opinion, is not too small or too big. And I wouldn't choose my school again because I enjoyed the support and teachings I've learned throughout my time there.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great education for not too much money

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Full attention on students and entertaining.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Love it, I can't complain everyone including the staff, professors and friends were always so friendly and shoe that they care about improving in our education.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is not the best. It is not healthy so it is not appealing from my perspective. Cost is pretty average, it is mostly fast food so it is very convenient especially if you're in a rush. You have a a great variety close and within a little 5-7 min drive depending on traffic. There are several popular fast food places to dine and also up the street at South Bay Pavilion mall.

Administration: The campus strictness is very fair from what I have seen. I haven't encountered any school policies that have affected me academically or socially. Overall, it has been very useful from my experience so far.

Campus Food: I am not a big fan of the campus food. The only place I ever ate at was the DH Bar and Grill. I love their chicken tenders and fries. The pricing is okay, but you are served a lot so it evens out. The other dining options are not appealing to me. It is not healthy or organic. I would like fresh fruit bowls and energy boost drinks, instead of caffeine or energy drinks that. If there was a bigger variety, then I'm sure myself and the entire campus would be happy.

Scholarships: My financial aid experience went very smoothly. I made sure I had all the correct documents and information that was asked for so my application would process easily. I only had to wait in a long line once to make some changes to a paper but other than that, everything is done electronically. The key is to meet the deadlines, and have the proper forms that are asked for.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an incredible experience. The dorms are very spacious and includes all furniture which helps out a lot. It also helps when you wake up late for class, since it just right there you will still make it on time. The other residents are of age so they are respectful and are very open-minded which makes it all the more easier to make conversation. Every experience is unique, you have to see for yourself.

Athletics: The gym is never open. The gym is not very inviting. I barely found the gym the past semester and I have been in that school for two years now.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: The closest place on campus that has a couple of different restaurants is the carson mall. The thing about the mall is that it's not walking distance but besides that they have a variety. The prices are like any other restaurant and there's no student discount that I am aware of.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: They have a few restaurants in the student union but I would like to see more of a variety. As of now what is offered is Jamba Juice, Subway, Pizzeria, Taco Bell, Panda Express and the campus bar. It'll be nice to have healthier food options.

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Since I have been enrolled in college I have not been given any financial aid. It has been tough because I have taken care of the costs which can be pretty stressful.

Administration: There is strictness in my school which is great to keep student focus and achieve success.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: For my financial aid it was kind of confusing getting and understanding financial aid. I got less financial aid then other students at my school who have higher income than I do. I barely got enough to cover my first year. I had to buy my books out of my own pocket.

View student contributors

California State University Dominguez Hills may not be the best school for everyone, but for some student, it’s just what they always wanted. The campus itself is relatively small compared to others, which makes it easy for students to get around and gives it a more communal feel as opposed to a larger campus that may leave students feeling disconnected. The buildings themselves are mixed. The newer ones add class and ingenuity, while the older ones give the campus an aged look, and everything blends together very well. The new library is a favorite among students, and it has become the new place to relax or do work.

For some students, it may take some time to warm up to the school, but they will eventually realize that the school has charm. The people help make the school, and Cal State Dominguez Hills has the right kind of people—people who will make school fun and energizing and who will allow students to be at ease and be at home. It just needs a proper chance to show that it is not just a stepping stone to another school; it is a great school in itself.
