5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus! All of the dorms are within an easy distance of the academic buildings. I'm not in the best dorm on campus, but I spend most of my free time outside of my dorm, either in other friends' dorms or outside.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: People don't really live off campus at Roanoke, unless they're married or their family home is closeby. You have to have special dispensation to live off campus, and then only in senior year, or else be considered a commuter.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few sit-down restaurants within walking distance, but only one which is open late. All fast food places or chain stores are more than a mile down the road.

4 College Freshman

Administration: For the most part, you can do what you like. The key to success here is not to go overboard: don't disrespect people, don't cheat, and if you want to do something stupid, be smart about it.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: There aren't a lot of external scholarship opportunities, but they do provide a surprising amount in merit-based aid.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are a LOT of heavy party people on campus, and that leads to pretty nasty parties. Core advice: wear shoes you don't mind having covered in beer, piss, and who knows what else.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The best meal on campus: chicken tendies and cheesy shells. The only down side is that sometimes you just plain can't find a free seat in Commons, let alone seating for a group.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The community is excellent, and though you can't live off campus without special permission, housing on campus is still very affordable and comfortable.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't really know all the details about the off campus housing options.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I like the dining options off campus. It's not a lot of variety unfortunately.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The academic integrity rule is way too demanding and way too strict.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Our school doesn't give much in scholarship, but they provide a great facade of the aid they will give. They give aid, but it's never nearly enough to cover the full growing cost.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's better than food at most other colleges, but if we had people actually cook some of the food it would be even better.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's okay to live on campus. There aren't very many resources in proximity that are divers such as food choices and retail stores. There are only 6 dorm halls that are "high quality." All the other dorms are either terribly gross and old, or they're too small.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: many nice people easy to make friends

Scholarships: The school is incredibly expensive and they tend to be very understanding and willing to work with students who struggle to pay.

Majors: Was an easy process, simply asked to be placed in the major and was approved

Campus Housing: Its only bad because we are grossly over charged to live on campus, and cannot move off campus until senior year.
