After Ohio Valley University
- Very Good37
Very conservative Christian and therefore a toxic environment for a gay person. Professors are influenced heavily by the conservative Christian donors that the school relies on, so topics on homosexuality and evolution are biased. The school is incredibly close knit. It functions a lot like a small town in itself. People compare it a lot to a family, which is accurate if your family is over-controlling and bigoted. If you happen to be like everyone else there (Church of Christ christian, straight, conservative) or can at least keep quiet, then you're golden. If you don't fit in to this tight mold, you don't belong there.

At Ohio Valley University, what welcomes student to this school is possibly the teachers; with their constant availability to the student to help them with their studies! The professors here will help student no matter what time of the day to help them succeed in their academic endeavors. Class proportions are small therefore it allows student and teacher one on one time, which is advantageous to the student.

We have the best campus ever! I have attended two other colleges and OVU is the best! It's a small campus, making it easy to get around. The OVU campus has great buildings with many lounges, computer labs, and classrooms.
