  • I am a current student here

    The campus is a beautiful park-like setting in a major metropolitan area, but far enough away from Oakland, San Francisco and San Jose.

    Being at NDNU, for me, is better than being home. I feel like the friends that I have made will be my friends for the rest of my life. But you won't have a good time by sitting in your dorm, keeping to yourself and being a hermit. You have to get out and meet people! Not everyone bites! And I love being involved! That's the best way to meet people here at NDNU. I jumped right into leadership on campus and I love it! And now I'm Diversity Education Coordinator! Its an amazing experience!

    You come to NDNU and it's like being apart of a family. You become really close with your classmates and are involved with everything on campus. These are friends that can last forever and that really care for you.

    I like that NDNU is small because I will have that opportunity to know the professor and get help from them.
