After Dominican University

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 love Dominican University! Now, I can't say that it's the perfect choice for me, since I've only gotten through one semester, but from the one semester, I've already accomplished so much and only see things getting better and better! Starting next semester, I am starting a few classes that involve my major, Nutrition and Dietetics! I know this will be a challenge but I am looking forward to it, and couldn't be happier that I am accomplishing this at Dominican University.

Dominican University is one of the most diverse campuses in the midwest. That being said, it also has one the highest percentages of graduates. Classes are small, allowing students to recieve direct attention from their professors. At Dominican, anyone and everyone can succeed. The campus offers a great support system consisting of advisors, professors and student organizations for any ethnicity or social theme that best serves the interests of students. If there isn't already an organization that interests you, make one! You can be assured that you will get support from faculty. It is this acceptance environment that makes Dominican such a successful school.
