Social Media Commenting Policy
The official Roanoke College social media outlets (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr and Pinterest) are where students, prospects, parents, alumni and others can learn about some of the great things happening at the College.
We encourage people to post, comment and interact with others, and expect that remarks will be on-topic and respectful of the rights and opinions of others. Please note that these are moderated online discussions and not a public forum.
