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!

I have been attending Ohio Dominican since the beginning of this fall semester and am in love with this place. The campus is beautiful and just the right size for me. It is not too big that it feels like its own city, but not too small to feel like every one is on top of one another. The teachers are very helpful and keep themselves easily accessible to students for questions and help. Everyone is friendly and if you have any questions, they will happily help within their abilities.
Some professors are fantastic, others are mostly under paid adjuncts who couldn't care less about their students. The school is completely athletics focused, meaning there is literally noting to do besides play your sport and go home on your off weekends. The education department is the absolute worst and a complete waste of time if you are actually interested in being a teacher. The school claims they offer classes but in reality thy lie to get you there. To make things even better there have been two shooting instances in the past year alone. But to have no fear because a ticket happy public safety division is there to protect you with their creeper vans and bicycles. Keep in mind this school is in a very dangerous area and the only student life is deriving to Easton or going to OSU
