I am a Freshman here and at first I loved Radford and everything about it. This was all during orientation and quest so they talked it up. This is a good school to go to if you did not get in anywhere else or got a full ride. For me it was not getting accepted where i really wanted to go. I strongly suggest that If you attend here make sure you have friends that you are close with, because while it is easy to make friends you will have a lot more fun if you have people you already know. Some advice on rooms: If you get stuck in a triple like I did get out as soon as you can if possible before school starts. Res Life is the worst department on campus and takes them what seems like weeks to do anything even the simplest tasks. If you can avoid them at all costs the people there are rude and lie to you about information and will tell you one thing then claim to have not said that. The other departments are excellent and the academic advisers are superb and will help in any way they can. If you are looking for a straight up party school and nothing else then this is the right place for you you can find a party literally everyday and almost all day long. I like to have fun just like everyone else but i know when enough is enough people here do not. On move in day and night at least 4 people got kicked out and more than 10 with alcohol charges or weed charges. Most of the kids of go here are stuck up douchebags from NOVA who come to party, if your high school was ruled by the jocks and rich kids then this will be exactly the same. The university claims to be a "dry" campus but its wetter than Niagara Falls people come here to drink and smoke weed and get an education second if this is what your about then it will be perfect for you.
