Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. Campus security is visible, dorms have keyed access for students that are living in them, the campus is well lit at night, and the town of Salem takes an interest in security and safety in and around campus. You can walk from campus to downtown in Salem. The police department is also near the campus.

Campus Housing: Move in went great, there were students to help freshman move in, and my roommate and I are good friends. My dorm is one of the older ones on campus, and the rooms are small, however I have adjusted and feel at home there. There are newer dorms that I toured during orientation, that are nicer.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Roanoke College was not my first choice, but I'm glad that I was accepted and decided to attend college there. The campus is beautiful, the professors are accessible and engaging, class size is small, usually under twenty students, and the staff are welcoming and very interested in helping and seeing students succeed. The college is small, and has around twenty two hundred students, and it's easy to make friends and find others with the same interest that you have.There are opportunities to study abroad, do research, and participate in many activities on campus; soccer and lacrosse are big on campus, as well as many activities nearby off campus. The college and surrounding area is steeped in history and traditions, and the town of Salem is small and quaint, and Roanoke in ten minutes from the college. My dad suggested that I apply to Roanoke after reading the college guides and reviews, and I think that it turned out to be the best choice for me.
