Favorite thing about Dominican: I spent almost three weeks in Fanjeaux, France, with 30 other Dominican faculty, staff, and students from across the country in 2011 and the sense of community and common purpose was amazing. We discussed why St. Dominic founded the order and walked in his path for several days, this sense of purpose and the ideals of spreading knowledge and education really resonated with what we do every day across campus as faculty and staff.
When visiting San Rafael: I recommend grabbing lunch at Sol Food (my favorite is the Bisteak Sandwich or the Veggie Deluxe with a limeade).
