Radford is a good school that lives up to and beyond its reputation. Its a smaller campus that allows for a tighter knit student body. Who, by the way, are well rounded individuals allowing for a place for anyone no matter what your personality is like. Its a nice school that is not overwhelming that will give you a great education and I'd choose to go here again if I had the choice.
