Ottawa University Reviews
I liked their campus. It's very small. Im not a huge fan of really of a huge campus. Ottawa provides a medium sized campus. I visited their campus on a rainy day , and i thought "wow this campus is still pretty even in the rain". I couldn't imagine what it would look like in the nice vibrant sun Their baseball program is fairly new , and I'm very confident that they will go far into their next season. The speech their head coach recited was just inspiring and left me with excitement to attend that school.
I went to Ottawa University on a volleyball scholarship and my time spent there was wonderful. I had great teammates and classmates along with the school having a great campus atmosphere. Since the school wasn't huge, the classrooms were very personal and you got a lot of one on one time with teachers.
I loved a.l the professors I had, especially the online professors. They made sure that I stayed on to of my work and that I had an understanding of the weeks lesson. I think the school itself could be bigger but other than that I enjoyed my first year.
