Old Dominion University shows a large spectrum of diversity in academic majors and their social groups that support students. The teachers like any university you will hear about will have different methods of teaching but are well intended.
What would be better about Old Dominion is the maintenance of their older dorms as some still do not have elevators for accessibility.
What I liked about Old Dominion University was the diversity and degree programs offered at the school. I also like the virtual aspect of attending Old Dominion University.
Old Dominion University is home to many diverse students with unique backgrounds. The educators were great at meeting the students at their level and helped challenge some students as well. There are a multitude of organizations and clubs that will broaden the social circles of many students.
The tuition, especially if you are staying on campus, can be a little pricey and just like many other institutions, the meal plans do not transfer over to the next semester. As students and faculty, the prices for parking tickets can cost a 'pretty penny'.
What I like about Old Dominion University in terms of my education experience is that overall most of the professors I had were very helpful and taught their classes well. Even some of the classes I took here were very fun and interesting to learn about and experience in person. Though, there are some professors classes that I have taken while attending Old Dominion University where the professors aren't as helpful, lectures or responses to questions are vague, and are hard graders, but that is just me knit-picking. All in all I do recommend attending Old Dominion University no matter what degree someone may be interested in.
One thing you should be aware of is the higher the level a class is the more work you will probably have to do. It may be a lot of work and it may seem hard at first, but there are many resources to get help from and succeed in those kind of classes as someone proceeds through this university.
ODU seems like a university that is very ready and willing to help it's students! :)
Getting into classes is a bit frustrating and confusing; it also feels like their selection of professors is all rated poorly by fellow students.
I loved the atmosphere of the campus and how accessible and caring the professors were
Its a lot of walking and some classes are only offered in certain semesters
