4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far everyone on campus I have met have been wonderful, very welcoming, and very inclusive. By everyone, I mean from the housekeepers of the dorm to the president of the university itself. I love the campus; it's very beautiful. They have very unique concerts, and fun programs that get everybody on campus together to grow and get everyone out of their shell. I love it. I also love all of my professors so far. Some of the best professors I have met. They are very willing to help you succeed beyond you normal limits and give you the courage to think more about every day things to help expand your own knowledge. If I had to go through college selection again, I would definitely pick Radford University again. It's the best decision I have ever made.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I've had an amazing time at my school. Radford is the choice for me. Its the right size campus not to small like Bridgewater college or too large like James Madison University. Most of my classes are the same size as my high school (about 30 students). The teachers are ready to help you in any way that they can. The only problem I have with my campus if the Financial aid department. They are understaffed so many things take a while to get filed or even looked at. Which can induce stress if you have student loans and they're waiting for your enrollment verification.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe I will be happy at the school, but I am in a temporary room not feeling that as I do not feel settled. This is stressing my mom out and I just want her to relax as this has been stressful financially for all of us.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I did not like the school I attended my freshman year of college and I was a little upset that my college years started off that way. I did make awesome friends that I still stay in contact with to this day, though. I'm now a junior and I am starting school at Jefferson College of Health Sciences in the Fall and I'm so excited to finally be done with my general studies and starting on my Health and Exercise Science major! I can't wait for what Jefferson has to offer!

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 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.
