4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class sizes at Radford are about average size but no too big where your professor can still give you one on one attention. The professors are very knowledgeable and understand the student's stress with other classes so they will work with you if needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Radford works with students to find an internship within their degree field. Radford also employs students all over campus, some students are also graduate assistants. The overall services at Radford are very resourceful, professional, and help make a difference in your life.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Radford has a very safe atmosphere. The campus police patrol the campus as well as the off-campus housing. The Radford police also patrol the area as well. The campus has emergency poles where at a push of a button you will be directed to an operator which also notifies police.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Radford thrives off of the college. The students are what keep the city operating. The overall cost of off-campus housing is about average in price and housing condition. The quality of your house, apartment, or townhouse really depends on the real estate company you chose to rent from.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is alive and well at Radford. Greek housing has their letters as exterior decoration and are known for their night life. Even though, the Greeks have exciting festivities they also give back to the community.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Although, Radford does not have a football team, our students show the Highlander pride throughout the different sport seasons.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: They have very nice facilities to get your mind off of things for a little while

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very intelligent and the class sizes are perfect

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: On campus, there are very few drugs. If the RA's or the police hear that there are some in a building or a floor of a dorm, they will go searching for it. If they don't find anything, they'll keep a watchful eye out to catch people. Therefore, there aren't really any drugs on campus at all. Off campus is a different thing. That's where the parties are, and as I'm not really into parties I wouldn't know what goes on at them. The campus is also a dry campus so any alcohol is prohibited.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I would say our campus is pretty safe. The campus police building is right across the street from the campus. Throughout the campus there are poles where you can hit a button and the police with show up extremely quickly if you feel that you are in danger or that you want an escort back to your dorm. At night, you will see police cars constantly patrolling around the campus. the dormitories are locked usually at all times, some buildings have classrooms in the basement but all dorms are locked by 5pm. An RA sits at a desk near the front door of the building weekdays until 12, on the weekends until 2am so they will be the first ones to know if there is trouble. No college is without crime, we do have them from time to time but they are usually off campus and if they are on campus, it's never in the dorms. Campus police can also be seen bicycling around the campus during the day (there are no streets for cars on the campus). They are friendly and do not mind talking to the students.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: dormitories are grouped in fives, called quads. Depending on your major, your classes will usually be around the same area of the campus(gen eds can be placed anywhere) and there are dorms that are usually closer to your classes than the others. The choice is entirely up to, but you can choose what dorm you get into. Living on campus cost more than living off campus, but if you're on campus you will usually have a meal plan to eat on campus whereas people who live off campus usually don't. there are buses that run for those who live off campus in case you do not have car. The school requires that you live on campus for a certain amount of time before having the option to live off campus. There is an RA, sometimes two, on each floor of the on-campus dorms who handle all issues pertaining to your room or roommate and also holds get -together from time to time to socialize with your hall mates. Your student ID is your card very important. It is how you use your meal plan on campus as well as how you get into your dorm. If you lose it, you might want to have your roommates number or a friend in the building to let you in.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The campus is very beautiful, especially during the spring. There are many places to eat such as Wendy's, papa john's , chick fil a but only a few healthy choices. Based on your the course you are taking class sizes can but huge (around 100) or small (20 - 30). Most of my classes have been small so I've gotten to know my teachers pretty well and can say with confidence that the teachers here are nice and care about your education as long as you care as well. There isn't a division 1 football team or swim team, but our men's basketball team is very good and appears on television regularly. A new gym was also constructed this past semester; a four-level building with weights, mats, jogging machines, a basketball court and a track on the top floor.

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.
