This college offers very small class sizes (20-30 students per class). Make the most of this and cultivate a personal relationship with your professor and ask them any questions you may have.

    The school is wonderfully eastern and new for a girl from southern California. The staff and faculty are awesome people who are willing and wanting you to succeed. The campus is beautiful with old brick buildings; autumn is now my favorite season!

    it is a good school but very expensive. It has a pretty campus but not a lot of diversity. The people on campus and in Salem are extremely friendly.

    Open-community that is very tight-knit. People of college and town are friendly due to prior fact. The knowledge gained is well worth the effort.

    Roanoke College is a great small liberal arts college, and it feels it too! While I love my professors knowing my name and saying hi to me around campus, I am not too happy that we only have one cafeteria and no college-affiliated transportation. However, I am here to further my education, and to do that, Roanoke is the place to be!

    Roanoke College is a great environment to be in, fill of caring professors and hands-on programs. It is a liberal arts college, so getting used to the INQ system was a bit hard, but it is well worth it in the end. The campus itself is just gorgeous, and I love being there every day.

    Great, small liberal arts college that focuses on a holistic way of learning. Because Roanoke College is comprised of 2,000 students, it's very easy to know everyone on campus! Everywhere you go, you recognize someone
