What Students Are Saying

4.07 Average Rating
Ohio Valley University is a wonderful college. The student/faculty is great, you can't really find that anywhere else. The faculty truly care for the students and you can see God shining through them.
Jordan from Rainelle, WV
Ohio Valley University has the credibility and academics of a large school without the coldness often incorporated with such institutions. We have many sports teams and other extracurricular activities that make for a great college experience. The Christian atmosphere at OVU gives the school a homey feel even to those who don't share the same views.
