"Most of the professors I have had want to get to know who their students really are, and I would even call some of my professors my friends. It is this passion that makes myself and many other students succeed in and out of the classroom, and proud to call ourselves students at Radford University.”

Luis Arias '18

“I picked Radford University because of its size and location. I felt I could develop a close relationship with my professors. Along with those relationships, I knew I would have the chance to do actual independent research that I would not have been able to do at a larger state school.”
