Nearly 95% of our classrooms and modern buildings are packed with 21st century teaching technology. From our award-winning Career Management Center to our study abroad, Honors College and Center for Service and Civic Engagement, learning happens in and out of our classrooms. One thing is for certain, what you learn at ODU will prepare you to succeed anywhere.
