It is really great, it is helpful in preparing, and the programs dont give too much work, and make sure that it doesnt interefere with your regular work and is very informative
College Freshman 2013-12-11T21:49:08Z
The work load is fair, and the information is really packed into the curriculum, but it is very helpful and I learned a lot. i think I will be well prepared for graduate school when that time comes around

The options offered are rather large, but they are more focused in specific areas, such as biological sciences and business, but there are a few other options offered as well

The food is covered in the tuition, but there arent as many vegan options, but they often have vegetarian options that look delicious. The dining halls are really nice, and the late night options are pretty good as well

Health & Safety:
The campus security is great, they are all over the place, and are very friendly, no matter what time of night. I always feel safe walking aroun campus, even in the middle of the night all by myself, because the security is always nearby and there are emergency phones all over the place. Crime is not very prominent in the area that I know of, but the little that there is occurs more in downtown Salem and Roanoke rather than in areas near campus

There a couple of really good restaurants and a great pizza place, but most of the places I cannot give a really good review because they are geared towards meat eaters, and I am vegan. If you eat meat though, this is an excellent place to go. The two major places are mac and bobs and macados, but they are on the expensive side. the good thing is that they usually give you your money's worth in food.

The weather is bipolar. One day it is freezing cold and snowing, the next day wearing even a light jacket makes you sweat. I don't mind it, because it is still warmer than my hometown of Philadelphia, but it still gets cold. Also my health is affected by the thinner air unfortunately, and I had to stop running track because I could not breath

I love my school for the academics. While a social life is preferable, I am ok with being alone. I have a few friends, but otherwise, I tend to avoid a lot of the people here. The teachers are amazing and the things they offer, like free tuturing services and the helpfulness and friendliness of the teachers are enough to make me really happy to be here.

The school will try to make it affordable

high expectations and hard grades.... but good school
College Sophomore 2013-12-10T11:43:27Z
Really dont need to use except during break. Not to difficult.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T20:01:58Z
It's not bad at all. People can choose to do it, or choose to avoid it. There have not been any situations where people are forced to do things they don't want to do.

The teams are average. Since we are not a division one school, we do not always have the best players. School spirit is alright, most people come out when free food is offered.

The school gives out great scholarships at freshman year, but when the next year comes around it is difficult to find new scholarships.

I would of chosen another school for several reasons. The first being that Salem, Virginia is a poor and decrepit town with little nightlife, attractions, or shopping. It is a functioning town because of the school, but I would be pressed to say it's a "college town". Secondly, the school is very small which creates the atmosphere of high school. I attended a very small high school and I can find many similarities in the social functioning here compared to my high school. You will know everyone you probably will ever meet at this college after 3 months and they will know you, as well as your personal life. Rumors still exist at this school and reputation is important to keep up. If you do not get into the Greek Fraternity or Sorority that you wanted to get into, you're social life will be greatly effected. Thirdly, the Campus Police "Campo" unlike past years, has become very strict. In the past 2 months, 8 of my close friends have been written up more than once. They are allowed to room search or enter any room at any time if they are "suspicious". This suspicion can be anything from food burning in a room, having more than 3 people in your room, as well as "Campos" habit of stalking out areas where they believe people will smoke weed. If you believe they don't want to get you in trouble, you are very wrong, if there is anything they can find to write up - they will. Many people I know want to transfer because of its strictness and general high school atmosphere. Unfortunately transferring is very difficult here because many of the courses don't transfer as a credit. If you can avoid the unfortunate situation of being stuck that I am currently in, then I would suggest you do so.

Roanoke students love to drink...a lot..but its ok
College Sophomore 2013-11-03T01:52:24Z
There are a lot of parties at Roanoke. There is underage drinking, but it is kept undercover. Designated drivers are provided to keep everyone safe though.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
