What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University has a lot of opportunities but sometimes they can be hard to find or get people to come. For example, I work in a makerspace (think high-tech workshop: 3D printers, microcontrollers and a sewing machine along with standard wood working tools) that has been added recently, and while those that come in say how great it is, we have run into issues trying to get people to come into the space. As long as you take the initiative, you are sure to find something you are interested in. Try talking to the professors in your department if their is something in particular you are interested in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a current student at Radford university and I believe that it is a good University. It is more known for being a party school. Which is true Radford University has been ranked the number one party University in the whole state of Virginia. It has also been ranked in the national top party schools. If you ask anyone in a different state if they know RU they will probably tell you they know it because it is a party school. Often students from Virginia Tech, James Madison and even from North Carolina come to party to Radford University. RU have a beautiful campus, and good programs. Criminal Justice is one of the best programs, there is even a courtroom in the University. Most of the professors are available during office hours and they will try to help you, except for those grad students who teach a class, because they don't know how to teach a class, and they don't care about the students, all they care about is the free tuition they are getting to get their master's or doctorate. I think that these grad students shouldn't be allowed to teach a class unsupervised. They should be supervised by a another professor. But that is not the case. In the city of Radford there is nothing going on, it is sometimes depressing, maybe that is why is a party school because there is nothing else to do besides partying. The closest major city is Christiansburg about 10 miles away if you want to go to the he mall or go to a nice place you would have to go there. There are not good places to eat in Radford nor in the campus, the only good place is in Muse Hall, but it is very expensive, a plate can go up to $20. There is a game room in RU which is pretty cool, there are a lot of pool tables, bowling alley, ping pong tables. The gym is pretty cool too there are a lot of equipments, basketball cores, racketball rooms and other games. RU is pretty big when it comes to greek life. There are a lot of frats and sororities. Hazing is always a NO but there is always hazing when joining a frat. There are some frats that have lost their national recognition but they still recruit. In campus housing is terrible. Probably Muse Hall is the worst. Apartments through RU aren't too bad, you get to live in a moderate apartment with roommates. during the winter the heater breaks almost every week and they never fix it, and if they do, it is broken within a week again. A heater is a must. RU does not have a football team, because their goal is to focus on the "students and not football" but we are pretty big in basketball. There are other sports as well, such as soccer, track and field and volleyball. Some of the advisors are grad students that they shouldn't be advisors because they often give you wrong information and don't show any motivation in actually helping you. I think Radford University is a very good University in general and if you don't mind living in a place where there is really nothing to do and you like partying, even if you don't like partying, then Radford University is for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University is a great school! The professors are really nice and they want you to succeed. There is always something to do and R- Space always has free activities for students. The campus is nice and small so you don't have to walk across any major roads. Overall I love the school. Everyone I talked to was extremely friendly and helpful. Great food selection and cafeterias. Free transportation (via bus), plenty of activities to take part in around the campus. I loved Radford. I loved everything about it. I loved that it was small not just in general but the classes were small so you really got one on one time with professors. That really helped me to feel like I was important and what I was doing was important.

It’s a place that I can most definitely stay focus based on the quiet surroundings and also learn about the different clubs and activities around and make new friends as well. The university is very welcoming and everyone is just one big happy family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford is the perfect school for anyone who is looking for many opportunities and there is always fun activities on campus for students. You will meet people from all across America. Radford is the best choice I made last year. People are so helpful and there are many resources here to help students if they are struggling with their social life or academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford University is a outgoing and active school. We have some type of activity every week, even if its just a movie night in the bonnie. The food isnt all that great even with the restaurants. The professors are extremely helpful with work. If you need help email them, go to office hours, ir create a study hall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! I'm a current student and honestly I was a little apprehensive before I came in the fall. As soon as I finished moving in I felt at home immediately. The people are friendly and the faculty does everything humanly possible to ensure that you will succeed. Radford University is a great mid- size school with small class sizes and great teachers. The small class size is super helpful once finals weeks rolls around. We also have a learning resource called LARC. LARC is a lifesaver. It was difference between an B and an A. The academics are great but so is the social atmosphere. Everyone on campus are quick to help if needed. The social gatherings are pretty great too!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Radford University is a pretty good school. I personally love the scenery and think that most of the staff is very helpful in involved in the students academic track. In being a biology major, I have had many opportunities to join many clubs. As a minority and wanting to be involved with the African American community found on campus, there are many organizations and clubs in which to choose from. For the school to be a predominantly white institution, I feel welcomed as a minority and see the growth in diversity every year. I would personally only recommend students who are looking for a school with a small class ratio and a true change of scenery.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Radford is a lovely university to attend if you have a lot of ambition. All of the opportunities to succeed are available to those who look and strive for the best, but if you are unsure of your path, it is easy to fall into one of partying and drugs.
