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!

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
Ohio Dominican has totally changed my view of college for the better. I transferred there my sophomore year with the feeling that every class and subject would be frustrating and difficult, I soon found out that wasn't the case. As soon as I started my classes I was welcome by eager professors who took the time to make sure I was comfortable and knew my way around. The atmosphere is unlike any other for this size of school. Earning my degree has been so worth while here and I am so happy I transferred to such an awesome school.
