Degree: Political Science

I am pursuing a political science degree online. This degree is one of a few on ODU's course catalog that is advertised as being available 100% online. I am supposed to graduate in two semesters. None of the classes I need to complete my degree are made available for fully online students over the next two semesters. Therefore, I cannot graduate because of the university's own ineptitude. I work full time at a location hours away from the university. I do not have the option to attend classes in... Read More

Save your money and go to a better school. Classes you need are always full if they are even available. Advisors have bankers hours and are rarely available especially if you are a working adult. Instructors are luck of the draw, some are good, some mediocre, some are very poor. Have a backup plan because you will need it.

Degree: Marketing

Absolute garbage experience. I decided to go into business marketing and the first issue I ran into is when I transferred over from a community college, and I sent my transcripts three times before the ODU office managed to get them put into the database so I could actually apply for my classes. I had to harass the offices in order to get anything moving. I have had a PLETHORA of issues at this school (not with the classes themselves, only the faculty). The faculty and staff that I have come across... Read More

Old Dominion does nothing to assist Adult Distance Learners. If you have an issue, please prepare to fight them and take your concerns to the top. They act like "just give us your money for your distant learning courseS and don't ask us for any help" I have experience this from my adviser and professors. I WILL NEVER ATTEND THIS SCHOOL AGAIN AFTER GRADUATION. THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY AND FOR YOU TO JUST SHUT AND DO BOTHER THEM. THERE IS NO SUPPORT FOR DISTANT LEARNER EVEN THOUGH THEY ACT LIKE IT...

Attending Old Dominion University was quite the experience. My advisor was awesome - he was always readily available, and took an interest in me as a person, not just another student. I was an online student, so all of my courses were online. The professors are very knowledgeable in their chosen field, and provided me with invaluable feedback to help me grow personally and professionally. While some professors limited the amount of books for classes, or offered online articles so that students would... Read More

Degree: Writing

Let me preface that I attended ODU back in 2007. University was fine. Most of the courses were live-streamed. The coursework was suitable and expected for the educational level. The facilities were great, as were the helpful staff. Most of the instructors were fine and well-educated; there was one, n particular, I won't divulge his identity, but he is or was in the business department, was egotistical. He didn't help students with learning material. Overall, it's a fair university to attend but do... Read More

Degree: Human Services

Old Dominion University was the perfect online school for me. Reasonable tuition and my community college had an agreement with them so the credits transferred without an issue. There is no requirement to have to be on campus at all. Now I am going to continue onto my Masters degree and the education I received there will be very beneficial.

Degree: Psychology

There is a lot going on around campus. There are always events and activities in the area or even on campus. There is a vast sense of community and family. However, in the surrounding area there are some poor and crime filled neighborhoods. ODU does the best they can to upkeep the safety of students but it is still difficult. Most students live off campus, so using the buddy system of catching a ride is the best way to and from classes.

Degree: Health Sciences

Coming from a rather small, rural high school, the diversity of Old Dominion University proved extremely beneficial in introducing me to the diverse world we live in. After attending Old Dominion University, I feel more confident in my ability to enter the workforce. The university provides an abundance of opportunities to join organizations and get involved in the community, aiding in each student's educational and character development. The only negative aspect of my attendance at Old Dominion... Read More

I had a wonderful learning experience at ODU. All of my professors were great and they took the time to work with all of their students one on one. I took all of my classes online and it felt as if I right there in the classroom. I plan on attending ODU for my Masters Degree in Mental Heath Counseling. I highly recommend ODU
