Dominican College does in fact challenge the mind and spirit. The programs available at the college are indeed challenging but, rewarding with hard work, effort and determination. They offer a wide range of community oriented services that provides aid in the community and around the world from El Salvador to France. The colleges athletics program is well established and their Athletic Training staff are superb. Dominican College has definitely succeeded with providing students college wide services. For example, career services, onsite counseling, academic success are extraordinary services that the college provides to students. Knowledge, friends, networking and lifelong skills are often fruits that may be obtained from these initiatives. Overall, this college continues to meet the student needs. Proceed with their vision to make the campus community oriented, safe and a great experience for students and families. Especially, with the implementation of the new turf field being constructed and the Hennessy center being renovated. This college is going on the right path.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME HERE! I’ve tried hard to stick it out, but I wish a former student would have told me the negative aspects of being in this school. The positive: The curriculum in this institution challenges you. The negative: Most of the percentage that attends this school does not graduate and is not accepted into the program they desire. While living on campus I learned there are hazardous fumes outside the main campus that burns plastic...and the news channel even came in to interview students on this. These fumes cause cancer! Don’t even get me started with residence life. This college is not like the advertisements and I wish I knew all the cons before I made my decision to come here. If you’re not aware, a student committed suicide from a bad situation handled by the school. There’s a lot of bad history and I wouldn’t recommend this school to anyone. Save your time and money.

This school has been holding onto my official transcript for an alleged registration fee, accusing me of signing up for classes and cancelling three years back. I explained to them that I did not register or try to register they refused to waive the $315 registration fee. I am beyond disgusted with this school. Not to mention they have a cemetary on campus. Do not go here !!!
