Christopher Newport University is located in Newport News , Virginia. It was established in 1960, and was at first a college instead of an university. The enrollment of CNU is 4,990 students. CNU is stated the youngest comprehensive university in Commonwealth Virginia . It is also in the ranking of 2016 best colleges .
From my experience I thought that CNU was a college that I might look forward going to. Everything looked like it was made out of gold, and it just looked really fancy. My favorite part about it was the gymnasium, and the indoor and outdoor track. Sasha and I raced on the track, and I felt faster than regular because CNU has one of the fastest indoor tracks. I learned that the population there is very small than any other universities. CNU was fun for me , and kind of interesting. Although, at the end of the trip it was not very interesting or fun at all.
Old Dominion University was established in 1930. It has 24,670 students enrolled, and their colors are blue and silver. Which personally are my favorite colors. ODU GPA acceptance is a 2.0. Which is calculated as a ''C''. ODU is held as one of the nations best public research institutions.
Old Dominion University was pretty cool for me . I liked the spirit that the students have for the university, and they have exciting events there that looks really fun. The most interesting thing there was the seal. I think it's cool that if you step on the seal than more years will add on to your 4-years there. I also liked the sculptures around the university they looked nice and decent.
The trip was very fun in most cases . Some were just problems that had to get fixed, but it did not ruin the trip at all. It was fun when we went to a pizza restaurant, and we ordered fries, and pizza. Everyone was having a good time, and laughing. Then we did the lemon challenge, and it was so fun, and funny. I think it was fun because everyone was together, and having a great time. I also enjoyed when we went down to the beach, and it was so cold, but nobody didn't care because we were all having fun. This would be one of the trips that I could never forget.
This is a picture of the ODU seal. The seal is a very important figure at ODU, because you can only step on the seal after you graduate from there. People say on campus if you step on it before you graduate then you will have to add on 4 more years to you college life there. Many people will stop in their track just to make sure that they don’t step on the seal. This University is very unique. ODU started off as a division of William and Mary; than soon became ODU. ODU is located in Norfolk, Virginia about a 20 minute drive from Virginia Beach. The University has a lot of foreign exchange students from all over the world. ODU also allows people to get the a higher Education from home on your computers.
This is a picture of CNU college. The build in the picture is where they have all the admission offices. Almost half of the CNU classes has less than 19 students. Almost 90% of all professor hold the highest degree in their field. The campus has a small school feel when you come. Their men’s basketball made it to the final four in the NCAA this year.
The Aquarium was one of my many favorite things from the trip. We got to see a lot of different underwater animals. It was fun to see a lot of animals that we only hear about. They had a lot of interactive things to do. One of my favorite thing was when we got to see a big lizard like reptile. You could go up into one of these dome looking things to be very very close to the reptile. In this picture, this is a hallway that had different kinds of fishes and sharks in it. Overall this trip was really fun. I really enjoyed it.
Some facts I learned about ODU are that ODU's population is large. There a little over 24 thousand people that go there. The majority of the population is undergraduate. There are about eight different majors at ODU. In the future I want to be a nurse so I would look at the nursing program. The nursing program at ODU seem to be a good program. I like the ODU campus but I don't think I'd want to go to ODU.
ISome facts I learned about CNU are CNU 's population is very small. There is only about 5 thousand people that go to CNU. CNU doesn't have an actual nursing major so if I went there I would have to take my premeds then they would transfer me to an medical school. I could see myself going to CNU.
My favorite thing about the trip was being able to spend quality time with my best friend Meagan. We had a lot of fun in the hotel room and walking on the beach and bored walk. We also had fun just being able to be together.

Old Dominion University was cool it was one of the first colleges I ever visited. I think the best part was when we saw the lion and I got to rub its belly for good luck. Also when the tour guides said that you couldn’t step on the seal and if you did you wouldn’t graduate on time. Overall I thought that Old Dominion University was a pretty good college but really wasn’t that interesting.
Christopher Newport University
Christopher Newport University was beautiful. The buildings looked amazing like it was brand new. I think that this was one of the best collages because there indoor track was amazing. Daisy and I raced and it felt faster because they have one of the fastest indoor tracks.
Something Fun that I liked is when....
I thought that trip was amazing and it was fun just to experience going to Virginia Beach with a class. I know we had some kicnks in the trip but I that we could put that aside and think of the good things that happened. Like for example when we walked on the beach before dinner and it was chilly and the sand stuck to our feet and it felt like quick sand. Then the pizza was good and it poured deliciousness in your mouth. Then after that we had the lemon challenge which was exciting and it was sour and we had a good time spending time with each other. Then when we went to the pool and right after the pool we went to the beach and it was freezing cold. But we didn’t care because we were having fun.
We have had so much fun here! We went to O.D.U and saw the huge Lion fountain. We learned that their is a thing in the ground on the campus, called the campus seal, that no one walks on till they graduate. Legend has it if you touch it before you graduate you won’t in four years. We also found out that they have a total of 24,672 students attending their. The president at the campus is John R. Broderick, and every Tuesday and Thursday they have a campus break time where no classes run and everyone hangs out around the Lion or inside; if the weather is bad. We also had a long bus ride where almost everyone fell asleep and trust me I got pictures.
The long bus ride we were happy to get to the hotel and hung out. We ran to our rooms to see the view and call our families. My parents said you could see the joy all over my face. They weren't wrong I was definitely love struck. You would too if you were their.
After a while no one could wait a minute longer to go walk on the beach and get food. We decided to go an check it out. It wasn’t long after we got there that all the girls took off running to the ocean; the boys and teachers walked. We had pizza and cheese fries for dinner, than split the party into shopping and swimming groups. I went shopping and got gifts for Tyler and Kaitlyn, my siblings. Than we all went back and swam, except the guys and Mr. Ellen, Than some of us went to the beach and only Isabella and I got more than a foot in. Than we headed back to the hotel where we swam till for a while longer. When we finally retired to our rooms for the night my room stayed up till 3:30am, more like Isabella and I after having a cup of coffee; don’t tell Mrs. Z we did that. The next day was pretty cool, even though we got a late start. We ate breakfast and went to the aquarium for some true fun. We saw everything from snakes to turtles and yes I got a picture of the turtle to show and one of me in a sharks mouth.
When we had our fun we went to C.N.U for a tour. It was awesome! We went to the indoor track where Daisy and Sasha raced; I still don’t know who won. We found out that it is named after Captain Christopher Newport. It became a full university in 1992, and started in 1960. They also had wonderful staircases; you know how much I like staircases. Anyway I totally got a picture of their liberty.
Now, we are back home and living our day to day lives. However, I don’t think anyone will soon forget the trip. I know I won’t.
