All life is a learning experience

At Roanoke, we believe some of your best learning opportunities occur outside the classroom.  It begins your first of week freshman year, where we'll encourage you to meet and make friends with people from many different backgrounds and learn how to work effectively through life's issues together.

From the start, we'll encourage you to join many different clubs and organizations, where you'll have a chance to take leadership roles, learning to motivate teams, organize events, and achieve your goals.

During your four years here you'll find many exciting things to do that will open your mind to new possibilities, and might even lead you to the passion you've been seeking.
