School of Business

I've been attending the School of Business for all of 3 years now. I have tried to be as fair and balanced as possible in grading the school's characteristics, based on the feeling that resonates within me as it relates to the education and experience I've recieved here at ODU. The resonating feeling is not that of joy, nor optimism, but alas, I must add that I have NOT joined EVERY group there is to join, nor have I met EVERYONE on campus. I also doubt that the fact that my experience at ODU has been utterly uninspiring is a coincidence, either. I have completed over 82 credits at this school, and moments of exhiliration and / or inspiration or miniture "eureka" moments when the world has opened up to me in a way that only a university can offer, have been few and far between. These moments have come largely from a few well taught economy classes that I have taken, and from the single literature class that was required. Other than that, I can equate the education I've recieved to swallowing a large horsepill that's too big for one's mouth, which is not to say that everyone will feel the same way.

Social Life

If you enjoy drinking, mediocre clubs that play mainstream pop, and mildly stimulating caucasian females, you'll like ODU.


Haven't Attended any. Go Monarchs.

Intellectual Stimulation / Activism / Creativity

None. Go somewhere else, or go to Barnes n Nobles.
