4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Even though my first classes don't start until this fall, my experiences with the school have been remarkable. The staff of the school is helpful. The faculty and administrators that I've met so far in the GSLIS is passionate and approachable. The campus itself is gorgeous and the library is thoroughly impressive.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this school. Teachers are awesome, they care about you and your progress. You can actually make friends because the school is so small that you will for sure see the same people again. You really learn from classes. I was never a top student but in this school I'm on the Dean's list

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's small, but has a great sense of community. The staff and faculty truly care about the students and do their best to help the students grow.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Dominican, it really prides itself on its community based learning and strives to give back to the community. It embodies all the values i believe in. Teachers are extremely caring and get to know their students. Students there are overall nice and i feel completely safe on campus. I have the confidence to leave my backpack in one building unattended while going across campus. The only reason i did not give it full points is because it recently increased tuition by 2,000. It does not offer lock-tuition which is very disappointing. I honestly dont know how i will pay this year.

Campus Food: It takes like freaking heaven! For the most part, at least.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can be expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining is really close to the university.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus Strictness is laid-back. It's comfortable.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: During orientation, they explained the process for scholarships and creating payment plans very well.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics do not play a big part of the culture of the school yet the facilities are good both for athletes and average students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Most students live off-campus. Usually the proximity to campus is relatively close. However there are not a lot of option for housing near River Forest and the school is not super helpful in offering you choices

3 College Junior

Party Scene: It's not a big part school and the social life of students vary there are not a lot of frequent parties but the atmosphere is friendly. The place where most big parties take place is usually the soccer house.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are usually a lot of options for dining around River Forest. The cost vary but are mostly average. If you have a car the distance from Campus is good. Not a lot have student discounts.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The Dining Hall usually has a variety of options during Lunch time and Brunch on the weekends but the scheduling is limited. Cyber Café's schedule is more flexible. The food is sometimes well made and sometimes hard.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial department is usually helpful and I received a lot of financial help.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Room Selection is easy and suitable for students. As expensive as it is, students receive a lot of help and support financially and the Career center is very helpful in helping and guiding student s find jobs/internships. The social atmosphere is okay. The dining services are okay as well.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I would still choose Sedexo instead of Chartwells.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm room is like any other dorm room. Small single rooms in the hall that I stayed in. Very social and nice. Everything is okay from my point of view. The only problem is that the elevator does not work and you will have to carry your own belongings up to your room by yourself.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would chose Dominican all over again because in the end it is the best fit for me. There are many ways to participate in school events and organizations. There is also no pressure to participate if one doesn't want to. There is also a strong sense of community due to the small size. It is nice knowing that community is there.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are relatively small so professors get the chance to get to know the students. How difficult a class is depends greatly on which professor a person gets. In most instances the classes are challenging but it is nothing that can't be handled. The professors are trying to push the students to do better on every assignment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The job/internship prospects here are great. The career center in Parmer is there to help every student and alumni find a job or internship for them.

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.
