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.

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hated going there. Just a year was unbearable. The admin did not care at all once we were admitted and the whole campus was filled with racism, violence, theft, and criminal activity. I was miserable going there and am physically and emotionally scarred.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a great place to start out. This is school is more Freshman-oriented, making it accessible for new incoming freshman. After your freshman year, that is when things start getting "sketchy" . As a Sophomore, Old Dominion starts becoming less accessible and it seems like they want to put you on the "back burner". I also don't like how ODU makes it a requirement to have a certain meal plan in order to live in a specific building on campus. Another thing about ODU, they are in the process to transforming the upperclassmen dorms on campus to freshman dorms. I feel that is unfair because they're pushing upperclassmen off-campus , leaving them with no choice but to scramble and find their own housing elsewhere. What makes it worse is that ODU doesn't have good quality or inexpensive housing to choose from; the good choices have very little space, so they get filled up quick. It is best to be a commuter in my opinion because ODU housing isn't worth the money at all. As far as the academics, it's okay but it could be better. As a junior or senior at ODU, this is the time to look for internships. ODU isn't "connection worthy" meaning, If you are looking for internships to build your resume, there are none close to campus at all. You have to go out of your way away from campus to get involved with internships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have toured Old Dominion University multiple times. Each time I stepped onto the campus I felt at home. In fact, I love Old Dominion's environment so much that I have decided to attend there in the fall. Old Dominion is very diverse. You see people of all colors bonding and becoming friends. Everyone at Old Dominion is welcoming and kind. I love how there is a place for everyone to be included at Old Dominion. Old Dominion has over three hundred clubs to allow every student to become involved and to form ever lasting memories. With great athletics, food, and professors, what's not love?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at Old Dominion University has shed a light on many of things that I will discuss. For example, The social life at ODU is very hard to get into because students are unfriendly and you have to know somebody. The party life is awful with the locals always coming and starting fights and parties get shut down within the first five minutes. There is absolutely no school spirit or pride unless our team wins a big game, for example, our football team beating VT. The food is getting better by more options becoming available but we only have 3 cafes and they have weird times except for Brodericks which the food is average. The off-campus housing is very poor because ​the houses are in such bad shape.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion university is a good school for students who like a lot of diversity on campus. In this school if you want to achieve a goal, you'll have to get up and actually go and do it. There are many resources that many students fail to take advantage of at ODU.
