As most reviews thus far have said, Roanoke College is a solid academic institution. I happen to be very fond of the my major's department and the opportunities Roanoke has made available to me, such as a semester abroad in England, start a new organization and a job that looks stellar on my resume.

What I've noticed is that a lot of past reviews attack Roanoke's social order and in case those deter you THOSE PEOPLE ARE NOT FORCED TO BE HERE. Small schools tend to form cliques and the people who generalize Roanoke as full of lacrosstitutes and lax bros are just as snotty. These are just the stereotypes the most frequently noticed on campus (because, yes, they're usually pretty people) and they're easy targets for dumb blonde and coke jokes. There are plenty of other people on campus who prefer not to drink, who don't treat their peers rudely and do well in class. Guess what Whiners, other colleges are filled with even dumber, prettier, and more drug-addled people and out in the real world, they usually make more money than you. If you can't put up with a few rich pretty snobs without bitching about it, you too, are a snob and need to get over it. Roanoke's a fine school, it's just not for everyone.
