Overall Rating

I really like Radford. I enjoy being on a smaller campus, the class sizes are great. I feel like I learn more being in a class with 40 people, rather than being in a lecture hall with 1,000. The only thing I don't care for here is the food, there aren't many options, and there really aren't many healthy options.

Overall Rating

What I love most about Radford University is the social atmosphere; there is always something to do, and overall if you have any problems Radford faculty and staff are always willing to help you solve the problem or come up with the best solution.
