What Students Are Saying
Apply for the scholarships even if you do not think you fit into the requirements. Take the campus tours! They are great! The scenery is beautiful! Take the roommate questionnaire and don't judge your roommate before you spend at least a week with them.

Be mentally prepared for what you are getting into. Roanoke College is not an easy school where you will make straight A's. You will be tested mentally all the time. Wether it is from the actual work problems or just from the stress of all the work, it can be very frustrating. Just keep your cool and realize that you got in for a reason, so show them why you deserve to be there.
Ryan from Roanoke, VA
Get involved! There are so many things to do on campus that if your bored, it is truly no one's fault but your own.
Cara from Flemington, NJ
If you know what major you want to pursue, sit in on a class or two! You can get a better feel for what it would be like to go to Roanoke and even get to know potential professors. I also recommend staying a night in the dorms; you can arrange to stay with a current student.
Felicity from Stafford, VA
Apply here you will love it, not only is this a great acedemic school but the campus is gorgeous and the town is very close to it.

To get the most out of Roanoke College, get involved with different clubs or organizations. The college really is a social atmosphere. Get involved with sports, Greek life, or academic and social clubs, and you'll get to know the best part of Roanoke College: the people.
Rachel from Salem, VA
Once you make one friend, you'll make three more, because it is such a small school, a lot of people know each other, so it's easy to become close to a lot of people. Be open to making new friends and be friendly and you'll have a great time!
The greatest tip I could give is to get involved. There are so many activities at RC that anyone can find something to join. Joining a club can really make your college experience great. I'd also suggest really getting to know you're professors. It's really easy with the small class sizes, and they are some of the most awesome people you'll meet on campus.
I've loved Roanoke College. The opportunities on campus are numerous. The only thing is, you have to put yourself out there to find them. I have a job on campus that relates to what I want to do in life. I've joined a Greek organization that I've met some of my life long friends from. As for academics, you better come prepared to go to class and study hard. The classes and professors aren't easy but it makes you for the better. They encourage you to work hard because that's what you have to do in real life.
