3 College Junior

Parking: I am not really sure because I do not have a car on campus but from what I have heard, parking spaces fill up.

3 College Junior

Majors: I am a Public Relations student. My program is OK. I wish it was a little bigger though. My career goals are geared toward owning m own music label. The only concerns I have about finding a job in this field is based on the popularity and difficulty that comes with my intended profession.

3 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my program is not that hard. Just have to have a steady grade point average. The only difficulties I encountered was the use of the process. During the process you might have people who is absent one day or the other. Just simple things. No, Radford University does not have an abnormal application process.

4 College Junior

Campus Quality: The best thing about Radford is the family environment. Many students get along with each other. This also goes along with the scenery the scenery is so beautiful and calls for relaxation and ease. This gives most parents reassurance about their newly enrolled Freshman.

Campus Quality: Student life on campus is fun if you go out and meet people. It will not be fun if you just sit around all day. It's what you make it.

Campus Food: Dalton, where everybody goes because it has a huge selection causes you to use the bathroom A LOT!

Greek Life: If you're not part of a fraternity or sorority then you're not really important.

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.
