Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

There is a very communal feeling. The education along with the connections that I am building already in my first semester are invaluable, however the cost of living is extremely high and there is no financial aid available.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: School diversity, flexible learning, great support staff, and technological advancement - internal/external relative to campus Cons: Some graduate programs are very face-paced; for which the school lacks in notifying and educating students of this high demand for time management skills.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I work full time and I am in the Clinical Psychology, MFT, LPCC programs. I attended NDNU for undergrad as well. I love the small classroom sizes and the individual support. Most classes are only either offered every Fall or every Spring. This makes it difficult to increase my class load. For example, if a class is full that is only offered in the Spring, I need to wait to the following Spring to take it. This has been an ongoing issue for me and has prolonged my graduation year a bit longer. I wish more classes were offered for each class.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2015

Choosing Notre Dame de Namur University to obtain my masters degree has been one of my best decisions ever. The staff is extreamly friendly. They have answered all my questions and they realize how busy the working college student is. My instructors have rocked!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Most of all I enjoy the small class sizes the graduate program at my school offers. The work load is also manageable, which is vital given most if not all of my peers work full time. The campus itself is not up to date technology wise, and the classrooms have not been renovated in many years. I would like to see more career services offered at my school, to aide current students looking for full time work in fields they are currently studying. The courses I have taken thus far in my graduate program I know will be useful upon graduation, assuming I find a career in the field I am studying. Graduate counselors have always been helpful and have taken the time to map out remaining credits needed before graduation in a way that makes students not feel overwhelmed. Most if not all the professors I have had the opportunity to be enrolled with have all been extremely intelligent, caring, and determined to see their students succeed. Entering graduate school at my particular campus was one of the best decisions I have made thus far as a student.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2015

The program needs more hands on work that will prepare students for the real world. Also I believe the school doesn't refer back to the books, students have to purchase books for each class but hardly ever do we review material.
