Scholarships: could give more to students

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Need more healthy/quick options available.

1 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Academics: My major has some amazing professors and many internship opportunities

5 College Freshman

Academics: Academics here are very hard and are taken seriously.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: People at the college are constantly working to help update the college and make it better for everyone. We may not be where we want yet, but we are getting there.

3 College Freshman

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.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think Roanoke College is an amazing place to spend four years. The sense of community is amazing as well as the classes, professors, and people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the classes here have an average of about 10 people minimum to 30 people maximum unless it's a combined class. The professors are great and are really interested in who you are as a person and how you are learning in the class. These classes might be harder than traditional lecture classes because you have to write a lot of papers, participate in class discussions, and do a lot of presentations.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Roanoke College has a large prestige in the Roanoke community so finding a job should be fairly easy if that is what the employer is looking for. The alumni network is great and so are the internships on campus

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The 'average' look around campus is preppy. For some this is perfect and others don't like the style at all. Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, and Ralph Lauren are everyday brands seen on campus. There aren't many people looking for serious relationships on campus and you rarely ever see a couple walking around campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus police make everyone feel safe, i've personally never felt in danger or scared at Roanoke.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is definitely a huge part of the atmosphere at Roanoke College. We have four fraternities and three sororities, all of them contribute to the college community and host special events and parties.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletic events aren't really something Roanoke students get excited about. Our athletic facilities are terrible at the moment, but we are building new and improved facilities which should be ready in the next year or two
