Campus Housing: The housing process is very poor and unfair to underclassman, they don't really have a chance to get the nice dormitories. Instead, the underclassman are left to pick up the scraps that the upperclassman didn't want.

Off-Campus Dining: I view the off-campus dining options as spectacular, because there is a wide variety of food offered in the Salem area. Students also get various discounts and late-night options which make it more affordable for a college student who may not have as much money as desired.

Administration: Campus safety is very strict when it pertains to the topics of the honor code and academic integrity policy. However, they are very lenient to the topics of alcohol and drug use, which can lead to the weekend nights being a little chaotic in the dormitories.

Scholarships: Roanoke College was very fair to me during the financial aid process, in fact, they were much more giving than I had originally expected. Their financial aid office listened to my personal story and situation, and helped me accordingly as much as they possibly could.

Campus Food: I personally prefer to eat at the Cavern or Salem Pizza, those places have the best and widest variety of foods on the campus. In my opinion, I am not a fan of commons because oftentimes they seem to have the same food several times in a week, which leads to there being a very low number of various foods offered.

Campus Food: The food options in commons ranges all over. There is always pizza, pasta and salad available.

Campus Housing: There are a diverse group of dorm buildings located on campus. Some of the dorms are a little older and not as clean as some of the newer dorms. Although the dorms may be older, the individual dorm rooms are definitely bigger than any of the newer dorm rooms.The atmosphere inside the dorms is great. Befriending those who live near you in the dorms is very common. The process of getting the dorms is quite simple.

Local Area: The actual town of Salem is just a small town with not much in it but Roanoke City has tons of stuff happening all the time, it's a great place to be.
