    Old Dominion University is an excellent school. I transferred from another VA university and I have had so many wonderful experiences here. There are numerous opportunities for students attending ODU.

    As a student at Old Dominion, this experience is whatever you make it. If you are the student that wants to be studying all week and partying all weekend then you should find those people to hang with. Your connections are everything here. You want to find out who the best professors are ask around. You could be looked over for a job opportunity on campus because no one knows who you are. And remember, even when you think no one is watching you, someone is always looking to see who you really are.

    Old Dominion University is a diverse university with greatly open minded professors. Every professor I've had will help you through the course and is not willing to see a student fail. The campus is always busy every Tuesday, Thursday and weekends with many events.

    ODU is a growing University that has a lot to offer. There are numerous clubs and organizations, great sports teams and good professors. The university life is somewhat lively but will grow as the school ages.

    Old Dominion University is a wonderful establishment that offers great things to its students, as well as their student-athletes. The campus itself is incredibly easy to maneuver around on. However, the most important thing is that Old Dominion University is a university that puts its foot out for the students in need, whenever, and however they need it.

    Great school, small school feeling but with enough students that you do not feel clustered. Great sense of community, every student is basically on the same page and everyone is very friendly. Academics are challenging but professors are great at explaining concepts and there are many resources at school. Great surroundings, being so close to water makes for a great breeze every day and beautiful sunsets.
