What Makes ODU Special?

It’s a little cheesy, but I always describe ODU as the “Goldilocks” of the college world. By attending a small school in a big city, students here get the best of both worlds – between building great relationships with faculty/staff and the opportunities to get involved on campus, to the endless possibilities for internships/jobs and fun things to do in Columbus, students at ODU have a huge advantage.
