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 professors love what they do, and it shows in how they teach. While there are different programs, there isn't a feeling of them vs us. At Roanoke, you have to work hard to get the grades you want, but you can have fun doing it.

    I just completed my first semester at Roanoke College from transferring from Patrick Henry Community College. Roanoke College is a great school with very strong academics.

    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
