Overall Experience: I love how quaint and simple Radford is. It's the perfect size, so no one gets lost in a sea of students during class. Even though it's small, Radford has a beautiful campus and a wonderful community of students and teachers.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Personally, Redford was the most logical choice for me. My sister attended, so I had been to visit the campus before and knew my way around. My only complaint is that people assume that my school is an easy school. It is often referred to as a "back up school" to attend if you don't get accepted anywhere else. I don't like the association that goes along with my school, but I'm happy to be a student at the school of my choice.

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at Radford University so far. I am involved with CRU, as well as the Geological society. CRU is an on campus christian organization that meets up every Wednesday night at 8. I love the people and the atmosphere. I have gotten to go on many fun field trips by being a member of the Geological society. I also love the classes at Radford, as they are not too difficult but they are not too easy either.

Campus Housing: It's a beautiful, small campus with very supportive professors. However, the higher-ups seem corrupt. There are also only a few "perks" and the food choices are mediocre at best.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I feel as though living in a dorm is a good experience to have, you get to meet new people and to realize what it would be like to live on your own. I think that everyone that is going to a four year college should at least live in a dorm for sometime. It is not like the master bedroom at home but it is something that you are able to live in while getting the education you need.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: It was fairly straight forward and simple. I didn't have to hassle with anyone or anything. I simply submitted my info online and within a couple of weeks I had been notified of my award.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of options for off campus housing. Just stay in the know early, otherwise you could miss out on some great opportunities

5 College Senior

Party Scene: If you want to go somewhere where you work and party just hard, Radford is the place for you

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Radford is a small town, so you really only have the essentials.

3 College Senior

Administration: You have your individuals who want to see people in trouble and we have those who are more lenient. Really it's just the luck of the draw, however, most folks do not get into too much trouble

4 College Senior

Campus Food: Not bad. I usually just stop in for Chick-fil-a because it's quick and on my way out of the door.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Radford parties go from Wednesday-Saturday although some people start Monday and go all week. It's generally easy to find a party, it's usually the same places throwing a party every week or on their designated days. It can be hard to get into parties if you're a guy because most places enforce ratio which means for every guy, he must have at least three girls with him.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
