The truth about Roanoke college. Basically, it seems that if you have a trust fund, and are used to taking 3 classes a semester then you'll fit right in. I find this place to be a little wierd with the amount of preppy kids that attend. I went to a good boarding school and were around people that had money. But none of them ever showed it off quite as much as they do here. I just find it interesting to see how many pretentious people can go to one school. As for the academics, it seems they have grade deflation here as a reason to keep kids locked in,(it's a private school so they need the business). Classes that should be easy turn out to be strangley hard, and an almost oppressive grading system. The social life revolves around the greek scene, which is pretty good and fun. The faculty is decent, they all went to Vatech, and they all have accents (southern). In a nutshell Roanoke college is a boarding school for kids between 18-22, its really small, filled with spoiled kids with problems, but also offers small classes, good food, an aesthetic campus, and good parties. I've had alot of fun. The student body is all white and some racists, and is def not diverse in any way shape or form. The local town consists of rednecks that have hyphenated names like sallie-jesse or w/e you know where im goin with that. Lax is huge here, they have good parties, but they seem to be borderline retarded. Thats the other wierd thing, many kids here seem like they have alot of money or come from good families, but seem to be retarded.
