    I like to visit the Roanoke star or go downtown with friends and explore the different restaurants and events that happen there. I also like to go hiking to beautiful sceneries in the mountains. Another thing is kayaking and paddle boating at the beautiful and breathtaking Carvin's Cove!

    My friends and I like to take the shuttle to downtown or to the mall. Downtown has a lot of cool shops and places to eat. We also like to stay in and watch movies!

    My favorite thing to do in Roanoke is visit downtown! It's super cute with lots of different shops and boutiques. Many places will give Hollins students a discount.

    There are plenty of events on campus that student clubs run to give students a break from studies. In addition to this there is a shuttle which runs downtown, to the mall, and Wall-mart, so if you need off campus for a little while there's a way to do that.

    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!)
