They are the recipients of 26 Virginia Outstanding Faculty Awards, the highest honor for teaching in the state, and numerous other teaching recognitions. Nearly 95% of our classrooms and modern buildings are packed with 21st century teaching technology. From our award-winning Career Management Center to our study abroad, Honors College and Center for Service and Civic Engagement, learning happens in and out of our classrooms. One thing is for certain, what you learn at ODU will prepare you to succeed anywhere.
