College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: You can make a lot of friends, but I wouldn't know the dating scene. Been in a relationship for 3 years now and have never surfed those waters.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's really cool how guys and girls can hang out and talk to each other without it being a big deal. There's a lot of different types of people that come together and become friends despite the differences.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are average looking, and the girls are average looking.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: As a girl, I find the guys at Radford to be super attractive. I got extremely lucky and met my current boyfriend on the freshmen Facebook page (definitely join this if you decide to attend, the connections you make are invaluable and it's great for finding a roommate). He and I realized we were in the same dorm and ended up being friends and started a relationship after like two weeks of school. Everyone says the boy to girl ratio is way off but there are a ton of attractive guys around campus. Sure a lot of them are just looking for hookups but most of my best guy friends I've made are searching for love.

As far friendships are concerned, most of the students here are great. Most of my friends are guys because a lot of the girls are the ditzy and slightly whorish. That sounds horrible to say but I've had a lot of problems with girls in and out of my dorm. It seems a lot of them have a thirst for drama. I just found a few close friends and try to stay away from the crazy girls.

Radford really is full of great people, you just have to find out who is fake and who isn't and then you'll be fine.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone seems nice and caring.

There are way more girls here than guys. Most of the students are not completely unfortunate looking, with many being actually very attractive. Radford has three gyms, and students take advantage of them in droves. Looking good is especially necessary with such a large number of ladies on campus—everyone is trying to beat out the competition. The guys at Radford are severely outnumbered, which makes finding decent relationship-material a lot harder for girls, but guys should have a very easy time finding a partner, whether for a relationship or a casual hookup. There are many different types of guys, including fraternity brothers, geeks, and athletes. Many of the guys at Radford are intelligent and usually involved in an on-campus organization, usually in the form of Greek life or intramural sports. Most of them are very good looking, nice, casual, and laid-back.

There are many different types of girls here, ranging from the typical sorority sister to the brainiac. There are lots of sororities on campus and a large percentage of women are involved. Sororities pride themselves in academics, community involvement, and, of course, their social gatherings. Girls tend to work out a lot, so the majority always looks healthy and attractive. Most of the girls are casual and laid-back like the guys, but there are quite a few who are high strung and very snobby. This is not to say that every girl or guy at Radford fits into the typical student look. There are some that are average looking and others that are drop-dead gorgeous. However, many girls and guys have incredible personalities, are funny, relaxed, and make great dates or friends.

Social Scene
Radford is a small school, with many students native to Virginia, so there is always someone who knows someone who knows something that might be going on. Since the school is so small, many students get to know one another very quickly, especially through social gatherings and parties—of which there are plenty. There is no shortage of opportunities for interaction, whether the event is school-sponsored or in someone's apartment. The best place to meet people is through campus activities. Joining a club or organization opens up a lot of doors to mixers, events, and social gatherings. These are also the best places to meet people if you are interested in long-term dating—it's easier to meet people who share common interests, values, and goals. It is also a lot easier to get to know someone in a low-key, low-stress environment where you will spend a decent amount of time together. Parties are also a good place to meet new people, but alcohol has an effect on how people act, and the potential of long-term relationships developing from a party fling is slim to none.
Hookups or Relationships?
Radford is a mix between students involved in serious relationships and those who are looking for random hookups.
Dress Code
The average Radford student wears jeans, T-shirts, and a sweatshirt. The girls are often seen wearing Uggs and rain boots.
