After Old Dominion University
- Very Good1173
The experience that I have at Old Dominion University is excellent. I am very engaged with student organizations and campus life. I have met a good amount of people that I seem to connect well with. I definitely belong and my admissions advisors is helpful when it comes to understanding college life. My professors provide a comfortable learning environment and the course load is not over bearing. Changes I would like to see is a variety of food choices. My dormitory carries the same food samples each day and it is not appealing. The environment of this university is not very safe because of the surrounding neighborhoods.

What I liked about Old Dominion was how the campus was integrated with the city rather than being in a secluded area on its own. It allows students to actually experience being an adult and have the chance to explore and expand their minds

The quality of Old Dominion University's education is very good. The school is also known for the diversity of the student population and the different student organizations present. The campus itself is very safe and the facilities are often clean. The technology in the school is also very good. Though the school's different offices are a little secular, most often than not, they work well together. Old Dominion University also has different activities and organizations that allow students to be active in the community. There is a lack of parking lot in Old Dominion University. Though there are two parking garages for commuting students as well as several parking lots, they are often far from class rooms. Students have to pay almost two hundred dollars for a parking permit and yet a parking spot isn't always guaranteed. Students also have to constantly be careful since the area around Old Dominion University isn't as safe as the campus itself.
