The students of Roanoke are from all over the place, but the majority of students (and the most vocal) are from the Northeast. Many graduated from boarding schools and were too stupid or lazy to get into an Ivy League, so they decided to attend a school which costs about the same as an Ivy, but is fairly crappy.

As a result, most of the students are rude, egotistical, snobby, and selfish. Social life revolves around Greek life entirely. Students are obsessed with cliques, to the point that certain tables in the cafeteria are known as belonging to certain groups, especially of sorawwwrity and frat groups. Students involved in Greek life are strongly discouraged from interacting with the "normal" people. Alcohol poisoning is extremely common.

The college administration is exceedingly deceitful, unhelpful, and conniving. The offices of the deans will do whatever necessary to cover up a mistake made by a faculty or staff member, or to cover up a scandal. The school's only priority is to fake its way to a reputation as an ideal school and get as much money as possible- student welfare is the absolute last thing on the administration's collective evil mind.
