4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the class sizes I have been put into so far. I think I do well in either a big or small class size. Professors seem to be great at the information they give out and I have enjoyed going to class each day because of the professors I have had so far.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I often see and hear about job options on campus. Sometimes by fliers but mostly by who I know and happen to talk to.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I often see campus police around campus on a daily! I usually feel pretty safe although I do not travel alone after dark.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing process for my freshman year was easy. I was put in the 13 story building, Muse. I was disappointed at first because I realized it was one of the oldest dorms on campus. Once I moved in I quickly learned it was one of the best things for me. The social atmosphere was great! I met so many people and my floor became what we called a family. I miss it already. It was easy to look past it being run down and not up to date. Having New River Grill below be also was one of the most convenient dining options for bad weather.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I do not plan to be a part of greek life. However, I have heard both good and bad things! It is kind of a mutual deal for me but pretty big at my school.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I wish Radford University had a football team but, baseball has been so much fun to attend and meet new people. We have a pretty good D1 team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Radford University. It is the perfect size school for me and I feel like I am at home. I have met so many people that I know I will stay close with already. I look forward to going to class everyday because of the class size and the people I am surrounded by. I have had great experiences with almost all of my professors too! My school is continuing to grow and I cannot wait to see all of the changes throughout living there the next few years!

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The professors make it so that learning isn't a hassle and is more of a beneficial part of your day. I have never felt the dread of going to class because all my professors have been so fun and made all subjects somewhat interesting.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is big on campus and you always see them out participating in things.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have very little school spirit, but that may be because we do not have a football team. Our students are very athletic however, and our gym is one of the newest and nicest in the country.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love all of the benefits of a small school, such as standing out and having smaller class sizes, but I would like to be at a bigger school for reasons like more school spirit and recognition.

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.
