Weekday or Saturday 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 program

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.

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.
