If you are an active student it can be a good school. If not then you will not succeed. The surrounding area is very dangerous, especially the two neighborhoods directly south of campus on both sides of Hampton BLVD. Since my freshmen year I think 10 students have been shot, and countless have been robbed and assaulted. For this reason, the campus is not open socially. Your best bet is to join greek life or a club sport if you want to have fun.
“ODU is a great research University that isQuite BrightKinesiology
ODU is a great research University that is widely known around the state and east coast. The school has many commuters and only about 11,000 of the 25,000 live on campus or around it. The main problems of the university is the location, its in a very low income area of Norfolk, va. Another is the food, its god awful. Besides that, you get a great college experience with a city school feel similar to U pitt or NYU.
“Great teachers, Crime location, always under construction.AverageCommunications
Great teachers, Crime location, always under construction. Not the prettiest scene. The food for the most part is very unhealthy. I do not recommend living around the campus. Unsafe, had numerous break ins. Weekends can be fun or very boring. Hit or miss. I would recommend the University for those majoring in Engineering but not any other subject. Also the majority of the staff is ignorant and always gives the wrong information. Happened to me three times. Lost money.
