Are you an alumnus of
ODU from 1978-1980.
What is your favorite memory of ODU
favorite memory of ODU Athletics is attending the first football
game played on campus. It was wonderful to see the years of hard
work to bring football to ODU finally come together. Our entire
family attended including my 80 year old mother (who was just as
