Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

College Life Rating

Campus is very social, there are a ton of clubs to join. Greek life is a big part of our campus. I've never felt unsafe on campus, they have emergency phones around just in case, and campus police very close. Athletic evens are free to get into as long as you have your student ID.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

College Life Rating

The social atmosphere at Radford is always fun! There are tons of activities throughout the week ranging from free to discounted; you're never bored, to say the least. I don't feel that the campus is THAT safe! I will be living at the end of the campus next semester and I am very concerned because we have had tons of students assaulted on or near campus.
