After Dominican University
- Very Good197
Dominican University is an incredible institution that allows for each student to have a uniquely intimate and personal academic experience. With a total of 3,900 students, the student-teacher ratio is superb and truly promotes students being able to build personable relationships with their professors. Located in the beautiful community of River Forest, Dominican's campus is picturesque and reminds you of an East cost Ivy. My only complaint is the cost; with tuition fees at $31, 720/yr (not including Room & Board), one can definitely expect to get their money's worth!

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.

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.
