I completed my Bachelor's degree at ODU. It was a challenging but rewarding journey. I enjoyed my time there but there are a few things that I wish would have been different. Firstly, the communication between myself, my academic advisors, and registrars were not always on the same page. My final courses for my undergrad degree were set and approved, but after completing them and applying for graduation, I was told that I had not completed enough credit hours to graduate. I was able to walk the stage on graduation day, but had to take additional courses after graduation. Finally, I completed my degree and got my diploma, but it was a hassle getting there.

I loved the close knit learning environment! I was a transfer student at ODU, but I quickly became engrossed in the academically rigorous and diverse curriculum.
Ohio Dominican is the perfect school for me, even if I doubted it going into my freshman year. The small class sizes are amazing and allow you to really get to know your professors and learn a lot about the subject. The free resources offered on campus, from peer tutoring in the library, counseling in the wellness center, and career planning in the career develop office, help make this university great and sets students up for success if they choose to take advantage of all that is offered. I love ODU!
