What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
I enjoy the education environment here at Radford University, because I am able to connect with my professors on a personal level outside of the class room. I find it beneficial that my professors have high experience in the subjects they teach. For example, all of my criminal justice professors have experienced a career in either police work, law enforcement, paralegal, law, lawyer and more.
Kaleice from Radford, VA
Radford University has several great programs, some of the best in the state. Several professors believe in extended office hours, where if their door is open then you can just walk right in without an appointment. The Math and Music departments are full of wonderful professors and the campus is large enough to have elbow room, but small enough you can get to class on time in the allowed amounts.
