4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities at ODU are nice some of the dorms are only mediocre, but they do there best at keeping things up to date.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: If you are an out of state student attending ODU the cost of tuition and room and board are extremely high, and the school does not offer very much help in the financial aid department. So you should apply for other scholarships online and look into getting privates loans, because you will likely have to get one.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at ODU are great, you get the feeling with most of the professors that they actually care about the students.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are all types of girls and guys on campus, you can pretty much find whatever you are looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few options just off campus, mostly fast food, but if you go down town there are a lot more options there.

College Sophomore

Athletics: I have not attended any sports, and therefore cannot form a viable opinion.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My advisor helped me personally to make my schedule and helped for me to build up my education and experience while focusing on my goal which is to be accepted into the dental hygiene program at my school. The program is very straight forward and I know specifically what I need to do and what classes to take in order to reach my goal as graduating with my degree.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: The university is very up to date with its buildings and recreational facilities. Even now they are still building add-ons to the college to further improve the student life and learning processes on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There is not a whole lot to choose from apartment wise. Typically students live in the same areas unless they want to venture off and find their own personal housing away from the campus. I find choosing housing based on what the university recommends to be very helpful and satisfying.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors seemingly are dedicated and interested in student success.

4 College Senior

Academics: Excellent and dedicated professional professors

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: U should triple the scholarship for these crazy questions and not warning us of the risks involved.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Questions getting stupid

I have no knowledge of the LG population. I have not surveyed or asked people. I don't know. My answer is there for not reliable. Do u think we go around asking people there sexual affiliatation.or do we go to class ...study and work.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I haven't interviewed people about this ... come on

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Costly to live in immediate campus area..followed by high crime ; lower income area. Must go beyond that to access affordable housing.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I don't live in dorms ..don't know answers

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I really don't know much about it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I am not particularly interested in the athletics . I am more interested in the education. I work a full time job and go to school. I do not have time for such things.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: At ODU class sizes are kept to a medium size that way you have the personal interaction with the professor. There are many different courses that you can take as electives that range from all different departments of academics within the university.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: ODU holds many job fairs throughout each semester. At the job fairs local employers are set up and students come dressed appropriately to hopefully find an internship, a job or at least network themselves if they are early into earning their degree.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: I am not affiliated with Greek life; however, I have seen some of my friends go through with Greek life and I just think it is a personal opinion. I would not like to do the things that some Greeks make their pledges do but that is up to the person that wants to be part the Greek life.

Students gripe about workload and professors just like at any other university; they may also feel distant from their surroundings because they are in eternal flux, but in the end, graduates are more than content with the choices they’ve made. Old Dominion provides its students with so many opportunities to explore the world with study abroad programs, internship opportunities, and hands-on job experience that it is almost impossible for a student to fail in anything that they do—be it academic, athletic, or social. Old Dominion can simply be an institution for education, but most of the student body does not treat it as that.

Overall, there are a lot of changes going on at Old Dominion University. The school is currently transitioning from a commuter school to a residential campus, meaning there is constant construction and landscape work. At the same time, the school is searching for a new president to replace the old one, Roseann Runte. That being said, ODU is an exciting school to attend. There is always something going on somewhere, and it is a range of diverse activities. ODU is among the most ethnically diverse schools in Virginia. With 23000 students and more than 200 student organizations, it is possible to have many different college experiences; it really depends on the one you make.
