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.
I am a 2014 graduate of Roanoke College and I can honestly say attending Roanoke was one of the best choices I have made. The classes are challenging and your professors expect a lot of you but you learn so much and your professors are there for you every step of the way. There is so much to do on campus. The opportunities are abundant all you have to do is take advantage of everything that's at your finger tips! If you're looking at colleges definitely tour Roanoke. It's a beautiful campus and will not disappoint, there is a little something for everyone there!
Roanoke College is a stunning campus located in the heart of Salem, Virginia. With downtown Roanoke nearby, Roanoke College is positioned near rolling hills and country back roads, along with city streets and night life, without excluding the beautiful nature that the location has to offer-including mountains and lakes. The college itself is bustling with genuinely nice people and caring professors. There is a great sense of comradery among students and staff. The food is fantastic, however I do wish there were more options- especially late-night food options. Overall, Roanoke College provides a great education by using knowledgeable staff, as well as provides students with a diverse college life by offering various activities for any interests.
