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.
