Students gripe about workload and professors just like at any other university; they may also feel distant from their surroundings because they are in eternal flux, but in the end, graduates are more than content with the choices they’ve made. Old Dominion provides its students with so many opportunities to explore the world with study abroad programs, internship opportunities, and hands-on job experience that it is almost impossible for a student to fail in anything that they do—be it academic, athletic, or social. Old Dominion can simply be an institution for education, but most of the student body does not treat it as that.
Overall, there are a lot of changes going on at Old Dominion University. The school is currently transitioning from a commuter school to a residential campus, meaning there is constant construction and landscape work. At the same time, the school is searching for a new president to replace the old one, Roseann Runte. That being said, ODU is an exciting school to attend. There is always something going on somewhere, and it is a range of diverse activities. ODU is among the most ethnically diverse schools in Virginia. With 23000 students and more than 200 student organizations, it is possible to have many different college experiences; it really depends on the one you make.
The professors at school are friendly. I haven't met everyone of them but those ive come across are nice. Registration is easy and once you get started in school things become like second nature.
Odu has their own shuttle buses to take students from point a to point b within the campus. Public transportation is also available and its free because odu gives every student free year bus passes. The buses are convenient and pretty reliable when traveling outside of the school area.
I am majoring in psychology, which is apart of the colleges of sciences. Things are great. Gen-eds are laid out in front of you , so you know what you need to take; why and when to take them. Professors are always friendly and really try to keep you on track. The curriculum is a little hard but its supposed to be. You have to pay attention and study and then it becomes easy. But that's how college is supposed to be.
There are a variety of options from apartments to rental housing. The only gripe is the possibility of your landlord being a complete money hungry, unkind person. Parking is easily accessible to campus at all times, although parking tickets come few and far between.
I have never met so many different types of people in one setting. There are Asian and Africans whom practice different religions. Also, they all interact with each other respectively.
