    Compared to other school I've researched I'm very impressed with Old Dominion prices it is not extremely expensive even though its still a lot of money.

    ODU is not as much compared to many other tuition. Do not fully rely on ODU giving many to any scholarships from themselves. Seems to be very little scholarships given to upcoming students.

    You will get a good education, but again ODU is a new school and is still growing to make networks and to make campus life better. It 10 to 15 years it will be an even better University.

    It's not Harvard, it's not Yale, it's not Boston College. The food isn't great, the sports teams don't dominate with all the best recruits, but it's a school of constant development. Sure, the school itself may be improving, it probably is, but I myself am not focused on that. The school is improving myself as a character, and that's what I care about, that's what my parents care about, that's what anyone's parents would care about, and that's what the people, however many there may be, paying the bill care about. But the main thing is, the bang for the buck is all determined by you. In my personal experience, the food just sucks and I have every intention of staying here happily.
