3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Some people get a little too caught up in the party aspect of school, but as long as you manage yourself properly there is no reason why you can't be an A student.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class scheduling is reall flexible and there are a wide variety of courses and course times, so if like me you aren't a morning person you don't have to take morning classes. The class sizes are small so you feel like you can actually have a relationship with your professors and classmates. Professors are understanding and treat everyone with respect and like adults.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a huge alumni network at the school and your advisor is the best tool that you have to access all of those possibilities. Radford is becoming more well known, partially due to the renovations and new buildings that are constantly being added. A degree from Radford means the same thing as a degree from any other good school in Virginia, a lot of the professors teach at both Tech and Radford, the only difference is Radford understands that not everyone is a 4.0 student

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
