I got involved with everything that interested meNov 28 2017Communications
I got involved with everything that interested me. I didn't obsess over making sure I had a ton of different things, just focused on what I liked. I also demonstrated my interest in the school, and attended as many information sessions as I could. Respond to those e-mails! They track student interest.

Just don't come at all. Save yourself the $53,000 dollars to get in this place and go somewhere better.

I have two pieces of advice when applying toJan 19 2017Other
I have two pieces of advice when applying to Roanoke College. The first being, get on campus and spend the weekend in the area. Spend the day here on campus picturing your life here and then get downtown for the evening and really take in all this area can offer. Although the city is a short drive away, it feels just as much a part of our campus and community as Salem. The second, be yourself during the interview process and really use your essay to show the staff who you really are. I still talk to my admissions counselor, it is a relationship you will have your entire time here.
