Please do not goto ODU.Quite BrightComputer Science
Please do not goto ODU. It is a last choice "University". The students walk around calling ODU a "fake school" and the local community college has more prestige. The school tries hard to push everything to be online classes. The teachers try hard to not answer questions and if they do....it's usually a "Google It" answer. Some of the teachers in the CS degree will actually try to teach. Most will tell you to read the notes and leave you be.

Question
I'm an on-line student.BrightEngineering Department
I'm an on-line student. The coursework is fine, with lots of homework. Sometimes professors are a little late with responses and grades, but not always. My only real complaint is I had expected that it would be much easier to find/enroll in my classes. The offerings seem to be suited to part-time students, and the classes are not offered in a sequence and frequency suitable to a full time student.
