What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion is very diverse, but there is a lack of cohesion. Groups rarely mingle; individually groups will host cultural events. Academically, ODU is focused primarily on STEM degrees, health sciences, and business/marketing. They do offer degrees in dance, studio art, photography, theater etc, but those programs are small and less developed. I don't see as many internships offered in the arts. Students seem less interested in attending the ODU student concerts and art exhibits. Overall, ODU is primarily a commuter campus. Students living on campus are more connected and involved in clubs than those who commute. There are lots of organizations for students to join, though, and I would highly recommend joining at least 1 club or organization. ODU also offers a variety of online courses. As a whole, I think Old Dominion University has great academic programs. Like all colleges, they have areas that need improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just love being apart of the community and campus life! The campus is very beautiful in the quad area is a lovely fountain with our mascot Big Blue on top. Then beside that one is another fountain that looks like a water park sprinkler. Then as you walk up the pathway in the center is our school seal that you are not supposed to walk on until Graduation Day because the legend is if you walk on it you will not graduate. Overall, the campus has so much to offer with a wide variety of lovely faces!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of ODU that it is a school where there are so many organizations and you are exposed to so many different cultures that its impossible to not find your home somewhere. Since my freshman year I have actively been involved in various organizations to highlight my experiences at ODU. From Intermural Sports to stay fit, to Student Government, as well as a sorority I kept myself active and involved so that I felt like ODU was my home away from home. Since 2013, ODU has grown to build a new education building for the English and STEM majors as well as renovating the TED constant center for the athletes. Having such a presence in the community that new education building was graciously donated to us. ODU really tries to get the student involved right away whether it be on campus or off with all considering (ODU is a commuter school we have over 50,000 students a year). Without Old Dominion’s continued effort to keep students involved I don’t know if ODU would’ve ever became my home away from home. Even now that I am a distance learning student, I know that I have made life long connections and friendships from Old Dominion. Being a Monarch is a privilege to bleed blue and silver to have pride and confidence at my school. Although not everything about my school is perfect and we have faced trials and tribulations at my school. Even then, we remained strong in the times of adversity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old dominion is a great place to learn. There is a wide variety of majors to pick from and also the campus is beautiful to walk around on a nice day or even a cold day! The only downside to the campus is the neighborhoods, around the campus, but Odu Pd our and the local police department do a wonderful job of keeping the campus students safe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school . The people are open and non judgmental. The teachers are almost always available. They are always willing to help and figure out a way for students to do better in class. There are also a lot of different clubs for people to join so no matter where people go they can always feel like they belong.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall opinion I would say Old Dominion University is a great school and the experience is what you make out of it. Very diverse school, very active, and there is always an event going on even for students that are not in clubs, sports, or even greek life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Old Dominion is a useful university for local students. It provides Hampton Roads natives an opportunity to access higher education. However, Old Dominion University does not offer the facilities or education quality that they advertise. The undergraduate programs do not prepare students to attend graduate school. If you are a high achiever, ODU is not the school for you. If you are a C student who already lives in Norfolk, ODU your backup option to NSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus and the people. I am a transfer student from Radford but I felt very welcome at Old Dominion. I am kind of sad I am not going for all 4 years. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I can see myself belonging there and enjoying my time there and that is all I want.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as though Old Dominion University will provide me a excellent learning experience, also a chance to make new friends. Touring the campus was a great experience, the campus tour guides were extremely nice and informative. They made me feel welcomed as a undergraduate to be a part of the school. I think I will blossom as a student and become a very mature young man by attending Old Dominion University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Go monarchs! I love my school. Coming from a predominantly white neighborhood, it is so refreshing to attend such a widely diverse school. Academics are greats, professors are great, food is great, social life is great. What's not to love about ODU!?
