What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is located out in Norfolk. Norfolk isn't the safest area to be in. There are reports of shootings and violence that take place near the campus often. It is best to go out in groups at night and if you are going to an unfamiliar part of campus or around campus do not go alone. The food is not very good. They offer a variety of food but, it is very bland. ODU has very good professors that teach well. The dorms are pretty nice. if you live on the quad you have a bathroom in your room . If you live off the quad some students have to share bathrooms. Overall the campus is nice and you will enjoy your time there if you find the right people to surround yourself with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a sight for sore eyes. It is located in Norfolk, Virginia near the Naval Base and Virginia Beach. The location is a plus when living on campus. But, you do indeed pay for that. The public university is very expensive. Out of state students have no chance in surviving the tuition rates.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s an overall good school for diversity and activity. Teachers effectiveness will depend on your learning structure. Everything is very accessible on and off campus. A good place for exploring outside your comfort zone because there’s clubs for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a campus that is full of diversity. My initial thought of ODU was that I would feel like an outsider, being a minority, but this is clearly not the case. People of different backgrounds, skin color, religion, and way of thinking make up Old Dominion. The university has become a second home to me and has given me opportunities that I never thought I would be able to experience. Old Dominion University is a campus full of spirit and opportunities. I am so glad that I attended ODU because going to school in this campus makes me feel that I am in control of my future and the resources that I need to be able to achieve my goal is available here at ODU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school! It’s very diverse and there are a lot of opportunities around, just waiting to be grabbed. They are always expanding on campus dining, and they are currently planning to increase campus living quarters! Whether you are an artist, someone hoping to pledge to a Greek organization, ready to get fit in between classes, or just chill in the library with your books, this is a good school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University has always been the school I planned to attend. Yes, I applied to other Universities but ODU has always been my top choice. People asked my why I chose Old Dominion and my honest answer every time is “I’m just drawn to it, it has everything I could need and more!”

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been enjoying my time at Old Dominion University. I do not live in the dorms therefore, I do not know a lot about dorm life. However, the academics are interesting, the professors are passionate about their subjects, and as long as you do your work you can get a passing grade.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is based in downtown Norfolk, Virginia by the water. I have visited ODU on several occasions and truly love the campus. It is spread out but not too big. They have a great cafeteria along with local shops. They have an amazing nursing program, which I am attending in the fall. They are building a new football stadium and have a beautiful basketball court. The professors seem professional and seem to care about their students. The campus is well maintained and well organized. I would highly recommend ODU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school if you are willing to learn and get involved with school activities. My advice for someone who is just now coming to the school is to make a lot of friends, and manage your time wisely. Create a plan to balance school, work, and your free time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Within my major specifically, Graphic Design, the programs and facilities are fairly new. Academically, the criteria is challenging but in a great way for the most part, especially in the Honors College. There are times listed when the design studios are open outside of class time to work on projects. It is unfortunate when individuals cannot make those studio times, but in the card center you can buy a prox card to be able to use the studio on your own time.My residence hall and suite-mates get along fairly well. There are many student organizations, sports, and job opportunities, usually within the students' major departments which is a plus. ODU is a diverse campus with students from all over the world. Some of the issues students run into are parking and finances following freshman year. ODU offers good financial aid and academic scholarship, and a lot is covered for first year freshman, but after that, it does get a bit challenging to continue to pay for school so many of the students and staff encourage you to apply for scholarships that they have enlisted. Also, some commuters say that they would appreciate it if parking passes were included in their tuition.
