Old Dominion University has exceptional faculty, facilities and the tuition is fair. I am excited to learn and attend such a wonderful university. The surrounding areas are not that great, however, the university does a wonderful job of maintaining preventive measures and keeping a safe environment. I don't live on campus so the affordability of living section didn't apply to me.

The pros definitely outweigh the cons with the graduate program here at ODU. In just my first semester of grad school, the professors have been so helpful and enthusiastic about the classes. I can tell that they truly believe in education and in helping us become great teachers as well. The coursework really portrays the daily workload of a teacher and our in school observations allows us to get a glimpse of what it’s like to be a teacher in the classroom. The program has confirmed my dream of becoming a teacher and helping others reach their dream also. The only cons would be it’s tough financially being a full time graduate student and working part/full time and having to pay back undergrad loans and graduate tuition at the same time, on top of other living expenses.

The professors are very dedicated in making sure students understand the material. The clinical instructor makes the clinical process too complicated and stressful on the students and onto herself.

I have the ability to attend as a distance learner in a synchronous environment. It is a hybrid of an online and face to face learning environment. This is a wonderful opportunity but can present technology challenges at times.

I am a new student, but the program has been very welcoming. I am very happy so far.

I feel like the university is the best in southeastern virginia, at least for the sciences. I marked it low on Transportation largely due to the local area's reluctance to embrace mass transit. The university is doing its best to work with this, but ultimately the other cities in the area (Virginia Beach, Chesapeake) need to pitch in and support mass transit.

The Graduate program in Biology at Old Dominion University is an awesome opportunity and you will work with some of the best professors in the field. The on-campus housing is few and highly limited, parking on campus is a work in progress but overall the faculty is highly accessible and willing to listen to any and all concerns. The student body while competitive are a unit that contribute and commiserate together in order to get the most out of the experience that is graduate school.

Social activities have traditionally not been Grad focussed, but things have been in improving trend in the past few years. Housing not available to Grad students. Being urban campus, not very many Grad students live close to campus.
