    The faculty is so helpful & generous. There is so much diversity on campus, so being more open-minded is key. There is much to explore & learn on this campus as well as the surrounding areas.

    Old Dominion University is very small University compared to other campus's. Most of the classes are small which allows more one on one time with the professors. The smaller class sizes also make you feel more like a person rather than just a name on the roster.

    the teachers, academics and social life are great at odu but the dorm ra's are more wardens that ra's. i was written up my freshman year for going out the unlocked, un-alarmed back door of my dorm because it was raining and it was closer to campus, a second time for not leaving the dorm for a fire drill because i was in the middle of a timed test (you take tests in your dorm with your computer and a webcam) that i would have failed had i left and a final time for being one of 10 people in a dorm room (the max they allow is 8 at any given time). the ra's gave no warnings just disciplinary sanctions for each. the problem was that i had good grades, had never had any issues with alcohol or other major issues, i had 3 strikes against me and was automatically suspended for a semester. i appealed to the dean of student conduct and was told the rules are the rules you have 3 strikes you are out for a semester no exceptions. it is a shame because i really like my teachers and adviser's who were shocked when i told them i could not come back this fall.

    I would recommend ODU to everyone due to their diversity and school spirit. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help. Not only do the teachers want you to succeed, but they make sure you get the right instruction so you do.
