Overall Experience: If I could go back in time, I would only choose to go to this school again because of the wonderful friends I have made and classmates that I have met. However, the Department of Residence Life and the Nursing department members have made me absolutely hate being here. Members of both department are not as responsive to student's concerns and needs as I would have liked them to be and are biased/pick favorites with certain residents/students. Residence Life members will ding you for something but may not do the same to someone else who is their friend or favorite resident, which is completely unfair and frustrating. The Nursing Department members tell you to voice your concerns and opinions because "the students are important to [them]"-- yet, when you try to address whatever your concern is, they disregard the issue and give a non-direct explanation as to why they did what they did. In fact, instead of answering your actual question, they make you feel like you're the one at fault for whatever the issue is that you're trying to address. Additionally, the department of Nursing is disorganized in the way they run things, which adds stress to the students' already stressful school load.

Overall Experience: I am so happy I ended up at Dominican University of California, and I know of a friend mine feels the same way. Yes, it's expensive and the small school environment has it's pros and cons. But I was given so many opportunities there both in regards to academics and extracurriculars. I believe that if you make the most of it, you can really get a tremendous amount back from Dominican University.
