What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Radford University is a great school to attend but if you’re not into the big party scene or drinking and partying every weekend I’d choose somewhere else. We don’t have many places near to do fun things unless you travel all the way to Blacksburg. If you can get into Virginia Tech, go to Virginia Tech but we do have some nice programs and stuff here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University has made great strides over the past decade at really setting new standards for itself intellectually, structurally, and athletically. I was provided with a great education and life experience that prepped me for life beyond college. I for one can say that I am proud to be a Highlander.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University is a relatively small school. I like it because it is arranged as a campus, rather than spread out across a city. I like that there are options for living on or off campus throughout your whole career. one thing that I wish was better is the food options on or near campus, most of the few options that we do have aren't the healthiest options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed my time at Radford University. The university is the perfect size that I don't feel lost in a crowd of people and my professors know my name but there are plenty of people I've never met or had a class with. I find the classes to be difficult enough to prepare me for my future career, but easy enough that I feel capable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford tells you when you come in that the staff will make sure to help you get good grades, you have accomodations all four years, and they tutor all their students and they actually do it. Staff in radford are being friendly, they really help you. classrooms are clean and its sanitized.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, Radford is not that bad of a school, but also not that great. There is a lot of room for improvement in the food and housing departments. The food in the main dinning hall is lackluster, granted the chocolate cake is not to bad. In the satellite dinning halls the food is usually good but gets boring after a while considering there is a limited variety. As for the housing aspect there is defiantly room for improvement. To give a personal example my roommate and i have had almost every type of repair individual come to our room and bathroom. we did not have air conditioning / heating for the first 2 months of our fall semester this year, while all of this was going on our toilet broke and had to be repaired 4 times, the electricity on one side of our room did not work, and the water in the shower was either scalding hot or freezing cold. When they actually came to fix the ac they took it apart and our repair individual took a 20 fluid ounce bottle, so the medium sized Gatorade bottle, opened a valve in the ac system and a fluid the look of black sludge came out and filled the bottle 2 times. my roommate and I had the same thought on this is "have we been breathing that?". so overall it is a decent school but it could care for its students just a bit more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University has a tightly knit culture for its students. It is a smaller, but not too small school, so it is common for people to know a lot of the same people, but a chance to also keep meeting new people. The students and the community are the sole part of Radford. The food is the worst part of the school, with not a lot of on campus choices, and mostly unhealthy, fast-food, off-campus choices. The dorms are pretty nice, each with their own bathroom. Everything you need is within walking-distance, or just down the street, so it is super accessible. The classes sizes are a perfect, smaller size, and the teachers are extremely available and caring about how the students succeed. The staff all around is amazing. Good school, could use some improvements in smaller areas!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Radford in all honesty. The class size is perfect for me ,and I was quickly able to get involved. I am very comfortable in my dorm hall and classes aren’t too far. I’m able to have great conversations with all my professors about my personal academic success. I believe Radford is a great place to go away to for college. I feel Welcome and safe while on campus. The atmosphere is nice and I made many friends just in my first semester . However, the financial assistance isn’t too great when it comes to my university. They do not offer much of any scholarships. That is my only major issue, otherwise I love my school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Radford University was hands down the best decision of my life. It is set in the most beautiful valley with mountain views, a river on campus and rows of gorgeous brick buildings. The academics are good, but it is what you make of it. Many people skip class and get too caught up with going out to make it past the first semester. But if you put effort in it is easy to excel here. The townies are super sweet and southern, but the town does not have much to offer. Only restaurants nearby are chains and fast food. But there are farmers markets and craft fairs, meaning it is possible to get things healthier and local grown. On campus food is very limited with few healthy options. Food is the biggest downside of the university but other than that it is an extremely solid choice.
