What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
ODU is a great place if you are looking for diversity on campus, there are so many different people on campus that you can also learn more about the world outside of the the classroom. The teachers here are amazing they all have one goal in mind and that is to help you succeed. Overall ODU is a community full of supporters.
ASHLEY from Suffolk, VA
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.
