STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

UNIVERSITY 101

I wanted to go to this college because it's one of the closer colleges around me. It had the cheapest tuition out of all the universities around. I only applied for two colleges Ferrum and Radford and I got into both without taking an SAT and that's what sold me because I never had the time while I was in high school to take the test because I also worked 40+ hours a week while I'm school. My application fee has wavered because our high school has a program set up to where you can apply for free when the colleges come down for a week to tell you about the college and everything.


Course Curriculum - 

I think the curriculum itself is very interesting so I never have to worry that I have to take this class for it to count for my degree. I think of more as I'm learning new ways to help people and to help apply my knowledge in the future to help people.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

RADFORD ROCKS

I chose to attend a radford university because I was offered a large scholarship here. It was out of state and had a beautiful campus and a good academic program in my area. I also was able to play Division 1 sports.


Course Curriculum - 

Very good. Must take a general education curriculum as well as your desired major curriculum. The general curriculum is not overkilled and once you get into your major the classes are all very relevant and challenging but fun.
