After Old Dominion University
- Very Good1202
I gave my overall experience a 3 in rating because I hate the fact that there are no fun activities. I understand we are in college, but there aren't many clubs to join here. I came from a high school where I was engaged in a lot of things. Like the marching band, cheerleading, step teams, student council, and etc. I would just love to join as many clubs, and organizations as I can in my college career.

Great resources. Whether its for tutoring, life after college, or internships the school provides a great range of resources. The education and school pride is overall amazing. They are great at accommodating students and their needs. They take into account what they want and need. They built a facility for a better dining experience, they built a new education building with better resources as well. They keep students well informed on upcoming events and opportunities.

Old Dominion University overall i believe is a great university, FOR SOME. I however did not have the greatest experience. What initially attracted me to the school was its diversity, as well as beach access. If you are looking for elements such as one one time with professors, smaller class sizes available, or even TRUTHFUL guidance from you advisor, then this is not the school for you. There are far more students that the professors and administration can handle. I was a first generation college student who was self supported for the most part and am throughly disappointed in the lack of guidance and resources I believe I needed to reach my goals while attending this university. Not to mention the fact this is open campus. Over my three years here we have have numerous shootings, missing students, and constant break-ins each and every semester and I feel nothing has been done to amp up security for the students. Besides text and email campus alerts..
