Old Dominion University Reviews
Overall I LOVE my school! Academics are exceptional, extremely diverse campus, activities/clubs for practically everyone, there is always an event going on on campus. There is a good balance between work & play on campus. The number of options for food is pretty good (although I wish the cafe still made omelets all day, but I digress). Financial aid could also be a bit more helpful when it came to finding money for school. I took a break between my sophomore and junior year & it was like pulling teeth to get the things I needed for school like housing, meal plan, financial aid, etc. Admissions was a wonderful help, but sadly there is only so much they can do.
I am an online student in ODU's Civil Engineering program. Being online allows me to work-full time while pursing my degree. The professors at ODU are awesome! They have all been extremely helpful and willing to work around my work schedules. If you choose to do online, you need to make sure that you have good time management skills so that you wont miss important due dates. Id highly recommend ODU for their Online Civil Engineering program, especially if you cant manage to be on campus.
Old Dominion University is honestly my newly found home. I fell in love with the campus and surrounding area in just one day. I am now a current sophomore and I couldn't be happier with where I am. I met my girlfriend here, met many new friends, and have experienced a whole lot within my first year that I never would have imagined. The food is alright, and so are the professors. You will find some that are great, and some that are not so good, but that is okay! All in all, Old Dominion was the best decision I have ever made, and I could not be happier.
