5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors at Dominican University are very helpful and will go out of their way to help students succeed. When students are interested in their own success it helps a great deal for the Professors and makes their job easier of giving students the information they need to succeed during their schooling at Dominican University.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: A degree from Dominican University will open many doors to you. The school is very prestigious and has been around for many years so when you say the name it is recognized and immediately anyone with that information knows that you have had a great education.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe on campus. There are RA's on duty 24 hours and campus security always on duty. I feel safe entering on and off campus after studying late and returning to the dorms or leaving out early to go study. I have never had a issue of assault or any situation that will leave me in fear of being active around campus during any hour.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I enjoy living independently. The rooms are a little quaint, but I do not mind sharing a space or having a 1 person space. I enjoy the process of having to be responsible for my own cleanliness of my space and not having my Parents around to remind me of cleanliness habits and being successful at it in the end. I can fit all of the things I need into my space and the dorm floors are fairly quiet and condusive to studying in my room.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There is not much Greek Life activity at Dominican University due to it being a small campus, but if it were incorporated more I don't think it would be a bad thing.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I enjoy attending some of the athletic games at my school. I do not participate in many athletic activities due to medical reasons, but Athletics are not the main focus at Dominican University, academics are and I find that helpful for me. I get to utilize all of the helpful assets that are out there to boost academic success during the student's college tenor.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I enjoy attending Dominican University. The Professors are very helpful, knowledgable, and encouraging during the schooling process. If I am unsure and need help in any certain subject or on assignments I can go to instructors for help after class or via email. Another helpful thing is there are helpful tutors on campus that are always available to tutor students in difficult subjects. I am glad I chose Dominican University as my college of choice because it is a small school with a setting that is helpful with students needing 1 on 1 attention. The classes are small and students do not feel like just a number among all of the students that attend the University. I will send my children and my children's children to Dominican University.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms can be very small. Not a lot of closet space depending on which building you live in. Coughlin (the freshman housing building) has very nice furniture and is a very modern room. My favorite part about the dorms is having a sink in them.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Since our campus is so small, we do not have Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: If you do not make the cut for varsity teams, it's okay because there are intermurals you could join, and anyone is welcomed to join them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, my overall experience has been great at Dominican University. The professors are really helpful when you need help in the class, and they care about your success. If you miss class for a certain period of time, they'll email you asking if you're okay.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Dominican is a dream school if you're into smaller and calmer settings. Professors do care about their student's individual goals and always make time to meet with them individually to discuss grades and to go over papers. The courses themselves seem like everyday courses but there is always a treat to them. We offer unique courses depending on the time of the year from election centered classes to art therapy during the spring.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Long story short: I am an incoming Sophomore and I already have an internship lined up for this fall as well as being a part of a college delegate program.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety at Dominican is very good. Our school has active security guards all around campus throughout 24 hours every day. Security is also very easily reachable and do not hesitate to walk you to your call if you have a late night class. Our school does not have any reporting sexual assault cases but still take every action believable to prevent it. Dominican also has a very good health department. Whether you are feeling sick or are having personal issues at home, Dominican's health staff are always providing a helping hand.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms at Dominican are in good conditions. Room sizes vary by building but overall they are very clean and have enough closet space. The only issue is the lack of air conditioners. Even though Chicago is overall a very chilly city, our summers and late springs can be very humid and this causes discomfort among resident students.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our athletic facilities are great. Our gym is very clean and up to date as well as our workout rooms. Our teams are not the best but they are something we are very proud of and encourage a lot. Games are very well attended.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first year at Dominican was nothing like I expected it to be. I went in with a heavy heart and expecting a hard transition. In fact, Dominican made it easy for me to go from a high school setting to a university setting. The small school environment felt more like a community. The student to teacher ratio was very beneficial because it was easier to build relationships with professors and get extra help when there weren't more than 30 students in a class. Professors at Dominican are very motivated to teach . I, personally, am not the biggest fan of math, but after taking one course at Dominican, my professors enthusiastic mood was passed on to me. Professors also make time for students. A few of my professors would schedule individual meetings with their students when we had papers due. This helped keep me on track of my work but also helped me make sure I was going in the right direction.

Overall, Dominican University surpassed my expectations. The faculty and student body is very welcoming and motivational. Despite the fact that it is a private, catholic institution, Dominican welcome and always includes all students regardless of their race, economic background, sexual orientation, preferred gender, and religious beliefs.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: It seems great, I received an email a month ago about an incident and security was all over it. They made themselves available to accompany anyone who needed it around campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Dominican always has job postings, I am always getting emails about job opportunities in my field. I have also received emails about job fairs as well from them.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: This school has a lot of online course options. I love my professors, they are willing to help you and just want you to succeed. I am learning a lot and having a good time.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Dominican is an amazing school. I love it

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone has a career goal and works very hard to achieve it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Dominican.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Dominican.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The fields are amazing and beautiful. The gym is open to everyone and the machines are new.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Generally, Dominican students have a very pleasant experience at the school. Many students make some great friends or find fantastic roommates that become great friends. The campus is a wonderful setting, with its small size and beautiful environment.

Dominican offers so many opportunities to meet new people and make fun, new memories, and the school's small size helps to create these opportunities. For example, the University Ministry department hosts many different get-togethers and events of all sorts, such as retreats, after-mass hospitality, and "bagel days"—all great opportunities to meet new people! With so many other organizations on campus, there are always new things to see and events to attend, from service events to social awareness groups to simply social gatherings; students who do not look for things to do and do not get involved with things going on around campus only say that Dominican is "boring" because they haven't left their comfort zone.
