Visit

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.

Saturday or Visit Day programs

On Saturdays, we offer an information session and tour in the fall and spring.  During our Visit Days, speak with admissions staff and Roanoke students as well as compare notes with other students who, like you, are looking for the right college.

Roanoke In Your Area

Roanoke is coming to you! Counselors will be available at college fairs and high schools to answer questions about the college application process.  Find out when an admissions counselor will be in your area.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

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.
