Ohio Valley University is a school that gives you a good experience with diversity. The problem with Ohio Valley University is that the school is expensive for what you get. The classrooms and dorms are very outdated. Also, athletic buildings are outdated. Ohio Valley is a close-knit community that is very safe!

My time in Ohio Valley University has been a little short but so far the people around the institution and town are very polite to the new comers. Students and staff members make you feel comfortable around them and try to make it the best experience you ever had in a Cristian institution. Staff members really encourage you to join social clubs, activities, or even sports to try and meet new people who are complete strangers to you burn the sooner or later, they become so especial that they make an impact in your life. What I really like about Ohio Valley University is the drive and the desire to step up, learn, and believe. If there could be something I would change from Ohio Valley University Institution it would be just the classes since they run a little small and not many students can fit in a small classroom. I would really like to enjoy a class with a range of 25 plus students in order to interact and meet more students in class.
Ohio Valley University is a small college setting. There are approximately 500 students, therefor you are in a good learning environment. Some think it's too small but others believe it is just the right size.
