The Dominican Experience is for students just like you. Of our fall 2018 incoming undergraduate class...



92% receives financial assistance


64% are from ethnically
diverse backgrounds


23% are the first in their
families to attend college

What does that have to do with the Dominican Experience?

The Dominican Experience is designed for the twenty-first century student –– the thinker, the doer, the artist, the activist, the trailblazer, the entrepreneur –– from every walk of life.

And we’ve done our research. The data shows that some educational practices are better than others. We’ve picked the best ones and built them into the Dominican Experience.

Every Dominican Student


works with an integrative coach
and a network of mentors
all four years


engages with the community
through service-learning, internships,
fieldwork, community-based research,
or global learning



completes signature work
such as a research project,
a giant mural, or a business plan


crafts a digital portfolio that captures  
the journey and all the good stuff 
that came out of it.
