radford university is poorly managed.Super BrilliantGeography and Geosciences
radford university is poorly managed. as a second degree adult commuter student I can honestly say that I have been terribly dissapointed with the quality of facilities, computer labs, and available parking (which is non-existant). Like most universities located in old cities, the university is surrounded by ghettos and slums. the town sprung up around the school and without it bringing in students and money, i am sure the town would not even exist. the university puts money into hiring too many adjunct faculty, which could be far better spent on building a parking garage, improving its crumbling roads and sidewalks, as well as its facilities. Many of the computer labs are very out dated. It is clear Radford gets much less money than tech from the state budget. sad school. even as a back up there are better choices available

The school has invested a lot in theSuper Brilliant
The school has invested a lot in the last years and from being a mostly "white school" is becoming every time more and more diverse.

It is a great school with great resources, faculty and opportunities to learn and be successful in your life after graduation.

I'm an international student and the reason why I chose to come to Radford University over the other options I had was because of the beautifulness of its campus, the nice people you meet here, the perfect size of the school (not to big, not small), the prestigious faculty, its resources and its location in the middle of the mountains with many opportunities to things in the outdoors. Let's go Highlanders!!!

terrible parking, rude students, unclean facilities and bathQuite BrightGeography and Geosciences
terrible parking, rude students, unclean facilities and bathrooms are disgusting. staff and professors are downright jerky and condescending. I have a previous degree and certificate from two other universities. please value my comments. If given the chance to go somewhere different I would. the low tuition is what brought me here.
