3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are very passionate, others are just there waiting to be done and retire. Some foreign teachers are horrible at speaking English, which makes it very hard to understand the material.

Health & Safety: They will take care of the problem I am sure.

Athletics: I do not do sports so I don't know.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: One of my favorite experiences transitioning from high school to college is the degree of freedom the students have with their classes. It is very easy to find classes that work with your schedule and there are plenty extracurricular activities to take part in.

Athletics: Our school has great school spirt. On Fridays we all wear ODU attire. At the games we all have great sportsmanship. The team performances are great! Our attletic facilities are so great people that don't attend are jealous.

Athletics: ODU has a growing football program that has garnered a lot of attention the past 5 years. There is immense school spirit and pride for the success of the ODU Monarch football team. The basketball team is also very popular, namely the Lady Monarchs. The Lady Monarchs have had a large fan base for years. I grew up in the area going to their games.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The safety has tremendously increased on campus which is such a relief. With being able to have security walk you to your dorm or safe ride take you from one part of campus to another is an excellent source of safety in my books.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Majority of my professors and I have built a great bond! I learned so many things from them outside of the course material. Not only does it help me gain perspective of the real world but when we can share opinions and laugh at the same things, that type of bond is truly great.

Overall Experience: The university staff has a good way of interacting with the students when recruiters come, internship opportunities, and job searches become available. It's really nice knowing that the university staff truly cares about what happens after graduation and making us look a little into our future.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
