What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University, in my opinion, is a diverse campus with a plethora of options at the students fingertips. You are able to build your schedule, as hefty or as light as you wish though they usually prefer you to stay under 18 credit hours as to not overload yourself; join a variety of clubs, chemistry, art, Pokemon go, or sorority/frat; eat wherever you wish as there are several off campus places to eat that are very affordable for college students and with the meal plan options you can always have a way to eat and not worry about being able to afford it instead of worrying about the studying and coursework needed to be done as most of us fret over. The teachers are always available for help during classes and labs and after, there are study groups on campus both self created and just around campus, as well as tutor sessions, in various subjects such as writing, math or chemistry, to help answer any questions one may have about the subject discussed in the class, questions about their homework, how to do certain things, and just to help the student understand the subject matter more deeply. The arts on campus are mesmerizing, there are at the least two museums the students and faculty have access to regularly and can submit their work to. All students are encouraged to participate in an art class, whether it be art history or theatre. The sports involvement on campus brings us together as one big happy family rooting for the football team to take down Virginia Tech at one of the Big Games we look forward to and enjoying basketball games in our free time. The support system on campus is one I have enjoyed and looked forward to having in a school. There are many options for students who are facing anxiety, stress and questioning their placement on campus and in college at all, as well as advisors who help you navigate college life, deadlines, classes and maintaining self care while also striving to do your best work. ODU’s campus is like none other and I am proud to be a Monarch and to be apart of the amazing community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If one school was the only school I knew, I'd be happy knowing it was Old Dominion; the people, the parties, the intellectual discussions, the way I feel freedom to do whatever I want, having opportunities put in place for me, knowing my fellow student isn't a stranger, I enjoy the time I spent here and look forward to the rest of my college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Old Dominion University. I officially discovered what I wanted to do with my career while I have been attending ODU. I used to be a little iffy on whether I liked ODU because I had heard plenty of mixed feelings about the surrounding areas, but it has definitely grown on me, and there has never been a time where I have felt unsafe on campus. I have really found a home in Old Dominion University and I would recommend the school to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a very diverse and fun University. It's a taste of everything on campus and every group you could think of. If you want a group to be a part of this University you can make one at anytime. We even have a waffle fan club on campus. Having fun on campus is never a problem! You will have fun but at ODU students are almost always put their education first!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a well diverse campus with many different people from all types of backgrounds. There's always something to do on campus, you just need to go out and find it. Overall, it's a great urban campus that isn't too big or too small. Anyone would love ODU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first I was expecting rude professors that would not take the time to help-seeking students. I thought I would have to complete big assignments in little amounts of time, but as the semester went on I felt as if a large weight was lifted off of my shoulders. The teachers I reached out to for help were eager to help me and if the teacher was not available the supplemental instructors were able to answer my questions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a multifaceted institution that contains many different organizations and majors which allows an individual to join in where they fit in. There is an immense presence of various cultural groups and there are programs and places where these students can go to not only adjust to life on an American college campus but also to maintain their cultural identity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion University is a very diverse and opportunity driven school. There are various activities that includes a wide range of student involvement that encourages individuals to feel more connected to the university, even if they are commuters. After attending Old Dominion University for two years now, I would not have chosen a better place for me to attend or feel more welcomed than this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It was not long ago when Old Dominion University was regarded as one of the lower quality and less desirable schools in Virginia. Surprisingly, the university acknowledged this, and changed an extraordinary amounts of aspects of the school and its facilities. In the past 20 years, Old Dominion University has doubled its campus size, more than tripled their student body size, and completely revised the educational facilities to impose a much higher quality, more accessible academic program for the students themselves. With all of this comes new, modern dorms, new and updated academic buildings, new dining facilities, improved off-campus housing, and so much more. There is an almost absurd amount of options in terms of extra-curricular activities as there are more than 200, including: greek organizations, academic organizations, sports, and non-academic clubs There is no better time to apply and attend Old Dominion University, as it will be a significantly bigger all-around university in the near future.
