The school helped meBrightComputer Science
The school helped me locate my first job which was very important. I've found a lot of support from the faculty at the school which I would not have found elsewhere.

If you are a minority I would notQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
If you are a minority I would not suggest coming to Roanoke College. The majority of the student body are very close-minded and I do feel that it is very difficult finding your place if you do not fit the mold of being white and upperclass. The teachers here are very helpful and the facilities are nice, but if you are a minority you will have a better experience and more opportunities at a different college.
