Greek Life: Greek life at Radford is awesome! Such a small community and we all know each other for the most part.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Student involvement with athletics at Radford isn't too much or too little. I think that if we had a football team we would be way more enthusiastic!

Health & Safety: Campus is fairly safe. Since I have been here there have been a few incidents of adult, theft, and even one suiside. Our campus police is one of the best there is. Throuout campus we have these blue light poles that has a phone attached to it, these phones can be used anytime of the day if you feel that you are unsafe. The buddy system has always been encouraged no matter what time of day. When incedents on campus do occur students and falcuty are the first to be warned that crimes have been committed and most of the time they include bullet point of things you should do if ever involved in an accident, adult, or any other time of violent crime.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are typically demanding which they should be since this is college and not middle school. A lot of my professors have been goofy guys that like to joke around in relation to what they are teaching which livens up the room most of the time. most class styles consist of lectures unless you are taking a more hands-on course such as chemistry and other sciences. So far done of my classes have consisted with over 100 people which is one reason I chose Radford in the first place. I'm the type of student that isn't able to learn when there are hundreds of other students in the same class. Another great thing about radford is that they have courses that'll fit everyone's personal preference like fashion, criminal justice, education, nursing. And on top of that Radford is one of the largest ROTC program holder in Virginia so if your thinking about joining the military then come to Radford and become an rotc before you join and get great benefits out of it.

Overall Experience: Radford hold a large amount of work study jobs that gives low income students the ability to make a little money while taking classes. Student career has help multiple students with finding interns and even jobs right after graduation. Each month we have special days dedicated to people from multiple businesses coming and encouraging students to take a look at their career options and even recruite them. We also have special days where alumni come and talk to students about their paths and what exactly what they did after graduation which seems to encourage students to not hold back on getting a job right after college.

Campus Housing: Radford has multiple on campus living options. The housing dorm called Muse hall is by far the worst building to live in. It is one of the oldest building on campus so when Sumer arrives everyone is drowning in a pile of their own sweat due to the fact that the building has no air conditioning. Although it is one of the worse dorms it is also the largest that hold over 900 students so I've been told you make friends quickly there. Living on campus has its ups and its downs. When it comes to waking up and having to go to class you have less of a walk than those who live off campus but say you want to go home for the weekend, that means you have to walk that 5 mile (exaggeration) trail down too the student parking lots while hauling all of your lougage because parking without a permit on campus is highly prohibited and you will like get a parking ticket.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeklife if a pretty big deal a Radford. There are two types of Greek life, social fraternity/ sorority and educational fraternity/sororities. Those who are members of the Social Greek are typically snobby individuals who believe they are better than anybody and everybody. They are mostly only known for their parties ,which by experience, are physically disgusting, overly crowded, and can sometimes be very sexist. Greeks can live almost anywhere, on campus, Greek housing, or even in their own appartments.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: One upsetting thing about radford is that we don't have a football team. Basketball is our biggest sport. The students love to watch the game since students get in free. Unlike most highschools, colleges allow much more team spirit which makes it more fun. Body paint, school colors, wacky wigs, cow bells, air horns, Pom poms, decorated signs, and even spirit dances and songs are the main factors of school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Radford university has a beautiful campus and in general has a great vibe. What I love most about radford is that when I'm here I feel at home because it's fairly similar to where I'm from. As a child and throughout high school I would always go to my dads drag races at motor mile drags trip located in radford va. Everytime we would drive by the campus I would alway yell "that's where I'm going to go to college". A few years later I applied and I got accepted into my dream school. Radford VA also has multiple hiking trails and outdoor activity parks which makes it fun and easy to always stay busy outside of classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm extremely glad I chose Radford

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I wish there were more lights on campus for walking at night.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of my professors have been great & Accommodating.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im a nursing major, and Redford Nurses are very respected.

Radford University offers an incredibly unique experience in a small-town environment. The small size of the University allows for a much more personal connection with the faculty and other students. Professors make it their mission to create an engaging learning environment, going above and beyond when a student makes the effort to ask for help. Professors are more than willing to write recommendations, assist in classroom issues, and be fantastic sounding boards for academic advancement. The goal of Radford academia is to better the students at all costs. The social life is also a bonus of attending such a small school. With a small population, the majority of students knows one another fairly well. They party together, go to classes together, and spend quality time together during campus activities. The nightlife is a legend among the colleges of Virginia, and the parties are incredible. But, even if you don't like to drink until you can't stand up, there are plenty of things to do like bowling, playing pool or pingpong, or checking out a movie.

The town of Radford is small, but within miles of several hot spots for action. Virginia Tech is 15 minutes away, Roanoke is less than an hour, and there are several mountainous hiking trails and camping areas nearby. What it boils down to is that Radford University is a "what you make of it" experience. If students put in the effort to go to class and engage in out-of-class activities, their time at Radford will be incredible. The friends you make will be lasting connections that continue long after graduation. At the start of college, every student is handed the opportunity to make something great out of their experience, and Radford provides many tools along the way to help students ensure it is worthwhile.
