Individual weekday visit

When you visit for a tour, do more than that—eat in the dining hall (students rave about our food); attend a class or two; talk to a professor, perhaps a coach, and, of course, as many different students as you can. Our goal is to help you discover the real Roanoke so that you can see for yourself if the College is right for you.

Visit Day programs

Attend one of our open house events, where you can speak with admissions staff and Roanoke students as well as compare notes with other students who, like you, are looking for the right college. Don't be afraid to ask questions about any facet of life at the College. Be candid with opinions—you'll find each college you visit to be quite different. Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you'll make.

If you're planning a visit to Roanoke College, you'll find a beautiful campus in a classic college town, with a vibrant city and beautiful countryside just minutes away. We're only 10 minutes from the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport, with direct flights to more than nine cities in the Midwest and East Coast.  We're 3-4 hours by car from Charlotte, N.C., Richmond, Va., and Washington, D.C.

Come see our college and stay awhile! The Roanoke Valley offers you the best of both city and country life, with great restaurants, shopping and museums, plus a host of opportunities for outdoor recreation and adventure.
