Known for much more than partying. RU is no longer #1 in STD's anymore (cough, JMU is). RU has more accredited cirriculums than VT , they have eight doctoral-degree granting public universities such as, doctoral programs specializing in the health field, has better student teacher relationships due to smaller classroom sizes.

Radford was recognized in a national study as an "Institution of Excellence in the First College Year" for the breadth of quality of programs that assist student in their transition to college life.

U.S.News & World Report has ranked Radford in the South's top 25 master's level public universities in its Guide to America's Best Colleges.....I can go on and on for "smart" category.

RU is about the students and the studies, not football. For the record VT students come to RU because they don't know how to party unless they win a damn game, and even then its weak. Perks, RU has a damn river in our backyard and the campus is F'ing Beautiful!!

The University thats students will out drink and out party ANY school that wants to challenge. A University that gives the word BEAST a whole new meaning! The University that has a beautiful campus along with lovely ladies/gentlemen. The University that breathes for it's students...not it's football team!
The best school in VA....once you are here- you will never want to leave!

A medium sized South Western Virginia University with very few nerds. Some of the girls are skanky that give the rest a bad name. Not a lot of preps. This school gets hated on by VATech kids down the road because they are not as wild and spend more time studying. Most students at Radford party hard. There are a lot of frat parties and a good amount of appartment parties. Parties are close together and you dont have to ride a bus around. Some people are Southern but the majority definitely are not. Their sports teams are not as good as bigger universities. Typical Radford student is chill, parties, and just doesn't give a fuck. Go to Radford if you wana have a good time. Most of the kids are just average middle class with average grades. Oh yeah and they like to "Maddawg" people
Wana go to Radford University for the weekend?!...Raddy? Damn i duno last time shit got pretty wild.....yeah lets go i need a change! were only young once!
