    There isn't much in Roanoke except for Valley View Mall, Walmart, and the movie theater. If you're 21, there are a few decent bars to go to though. If you get the chance to walk around downtown Roanoke on a Saturday afternoon, there are a few nifty shops, and they are expanding and putting in more cool things, so more options should be available soon! But on campus, there isn't much aside from the student events that SGA and other clubs and seniors socials that they put on. The library has a pretty amazing collection of books and DVDs though if you're in a pinch! And there is talk of SGA putting in a Redbox on campus!

    Nothing, the bus only runs Friday- Sunday and downtown Roanoke is 5 blocks wide and most stores are foreclosed.

    Roanoke is such a great little area - there's stores to shop at, zoos to visit, movies to go see, and mountains to climb! (There's even a zoo on top of a mountain!)

    What can't you do? Hollins offers a free shuttle to Valley View Mall and downtown Wednesday-Saturday. There is always something going on on campus.

    Every weekend there are shuttles into downtown Roanoke, where there are a lot of cute local shops that are fun to explore. There's also occasionally a farmer's market and bazaar, with stands from many local businesses. Other things include the mall, movie theater, mini golf, Mill Mountain and its zoo, and a host of restaurant choices.

    Hollins plans many events to cater to the entertainment of the students. Students who attend these events often enjoy them, and can usually request to have them again. Because Hollins is isolated from the city, there aren't many things to do outside of campus, however, there is a shuttle, free of charge for taking students out into the city. Hollins students are so unique, they get creative with their own kind of fun things to do on campus, however.

    Due to the amazing valley that Hollins is located in, the University has many different offerings for on as well as off campus fun! Downtown Roanoke is a great place to just escape to as well!

    Hollins always has events going on around campus, or even off campus. On campus we have a rock climbing wall, a dine in restaurant that serves beer on the weekends, and plenty of students to hang out with. Off campus there are so many things to do. The Roanoke star, Mill Mountain Zoo, Downtown Roanoke are all less than 20 minutes away.
