Old Dominion University Reviews
Review Old Dominion University
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.
The university is VERY diverse. There are so many on campus events and organizations to participate in. The professors care if you care, so take some time out to visit them during office hours! There are countless resources readily available to students, you just have to go out and get them. The weather for the most part, is not bad. We're just 10 mins away from downtown Norfolk and about 25 mins away from the beach! Everyone is relatively nice and friendly. Lots of hang out spots and places to go, but most are hole in the wall. Theres a lot of southern hospitality. Nothing is overwhelming down here. The neighborhood is kind of dangerous, just be safe and don't venture out alone. There are night time shuttles provided by ODU to help you get from one place to another during the night time hours.
I love the diversity that Old Dominion University has to offer! The student body and surrounding location is a melting pot for both Norfolk locals and people from around the world. Campus life is always interesting! As a Sophomore at ODU, I feel so fortunate that I've had the opportunity to be a part of such a diverse environment. Shout out to the professors who have made my time at this academic institution worthwhile!
