"Overall, Old Dominion University affords its students a tremendous amount of opportunities and resources. I loved the university so much, I chose to stay for graduate school. ODU is known for its inclusive environment and is proud of its diverse population of students, faculty, and staff. There are countless organizations on campus for students to get involved it, including those for first generation, LGBTQ+, and international students. There are also various office to help students in their adjustment to college. For example, the Office of Intercultural Relations for international students, the Learning Center for those seeking academic coaching or peer mentoring, Counseling Services where student receive 10 free sessions every year, and so much more. ODU also offers online distance learning at both the undergraduate and graduate level. Additionally, ODU has been ranked as having the most affordable tuition in the state of Virginia. ODU is supportive of the military community it the surrounding area and offers reduced tuition for active duty military. I highly recommend Old Dominion University to anyone interested in going to college."

"Old Dominion University offers diversity, many clubs and organizations, a focus in research, and different options for courses such as online, on campus, and evening offerings. Most professors are highly rated, many of which are the best in their field. The tuition is priced well in comparison to many other colleges that are comparable. I received my Bachelor's in Psychology and highly recommend it. I continued into the graduate program for counseling, and I am told they are one of the best schools in the country for this field. I had to move away for my husband's work and miss it greatly. I would give it 5 stars if it wasn't for a few professors that I felt were not exemplary, but that will happen at nearly any school."

"ODU overall offered a great experience. The professors I had were great, and the coursework was not overly crazy. I enjoyed taking courses online and I did not have any problems when taking online courses. The only cons I encountered was paying $250 a year for a parking pass that did not guarantee a parking spot. Also, Norfolk in general is not a safe area so it is very important to be aware of your surrounds at all times."

Okay School - 7/16/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"I graduated with a 3.64, but it's like the professor wanted me to fail. I kept a 4.0 until my last year at the school. It's a cut throat university. The campus is beautiful, but the professor are not as friendly as they should be. After I graduated I still ended up with a minimum wage job and they don't help with finding an internship."

"It was a good experience. I liked ODU for the most part. The campus is very diverse so you get a lot of insight from people with very different backgrounds. The parking isn't that good but I hear they are doing everything they can to fix it. The food is okay, not great."

"Although ultimately my career path was Occupational Therapy, obtaining my BA degree from ODU set me up for success as a Master's student. The course content and support received from all my professors adequately prepared me for my next academic journey!"

Berkeley Martin - 3/27/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"There is a lot going on around campus. There are always events and activities in the area or even on campus. There is a vast sense of community and family. However, in the surrounding area there are some poor and crime filled neighborhoods. ODU does the best they can to upkeep the safety of students but it is still difficult. Most students live off campus, so using the buddy system of catching a ride is the best way to and from classes."
