She cares more about Excess Competition than the average student.

I was a freshman at Roanoke last year, so I left after last year and let me say: I am leaving next semester due to personal obligations. But Roanoke College cares more about gen ed classes than your major classes. The dumb INQ classes will screw you up, and they are hard classes for no apparent reason. Your freshmen seminar class will basically be a specific learning based environment tied into English composition; I had 6 writing assignments in my first semester seminar class. Three of my very best friends left after their freshmen year, and they transferred elsewhere. People here are very close minded and stuck-up. The parties here are close to high school caliber parties, and most of the time there are about 3 fraternity parties on off campus housing per weekend. Some low-key parties during the weekdays. The brothers normally kick freshman males out, and I actually knew some girls who were not able to get into the parties. All in all, Roanoke's professors are basically locals who love the area and adore Roanoke College. Those INQ classes will be a tiring class for you.
  • And also avoid, suite style living or single rooms because it is easier to meet more people this way, and you can chill out in the common room. If you decide to come here; you've been warned, but good luck.
