Roanoke College was the worst decision I've ever made. There are only a handful of nice and accepting people here. Most people are just plain rude and disrespectful. They will trash the dorms, be obnoxious at all hours on weekdays, and will treat you like you're nothing if you don't come from a rich family. If you don't come from money, you'll probably be offered a good financial aid package because the school has the money to give away, but good luck making friends. The parties are mediocre, at best, and the Greeks basically run the campus. Pearls and polos are the only way to go here. There's nothing to do in the town, and the city of Roanoke might be the most boring "city" to ever exist. There's no school pride and the campus activities are all lame (unless you're 70 and bingo's your thing). You'll be loaded on homework and be prepared to write a five page paper a night even though the quality of your education is average. Oh, and when you realize this place sucks, you won't be able to leave because your gen eds (INQ classes) won't transfer and the professors screw your GPA by never giving anyone A's.
