Roanoke College Reviews
Great campus... great professors...great curriculum...overall, a great school! I came into this school having no direction or plan and it wasn't long before Roanoke helped me discover my passion. Small class sizes make it so easy to develop connections with both your classmates and professors. You aren't just a number here, and, personally, these connections have helped me grow and recognize my strengths and talents. In return, I have been given so many wonderful opportunities at this school that have truly prepared me for life after graduation. I would recommend Roanoke College in a heartbeat.
Everyone on campus is so kind and they have a great community. Events are fun to go to like the President's Ball and it is remarkably easy to be involved on campus. The college takes students seriously with great representatives in Student Government and a genuine interest in students from faculty and staff. Food is better than most and you will never go hungry. In the beginning of the year they hold Friday on the Quad for a few weeks and everyone eats out on the back quad. There are tuns of study abroad opportunities here too! It has been an amazing experience here but invest in rain boots and a good umbrella because it rains a lot.
I loved my experience at Roanoke College! The school is small, but everyone is very close and it feels like one big family! The professors are extremely supportive and only want what is best for the students and are flexible and understanding.
