Classes at Radford University is typically 20-30 students. So if you want to be in small classes, this University would be a perfect fit for you. The campus is pretty small as well, so you will get used to where everything is at pretty quickly. If you bring a car, parking could be an issue. So if you live off campus, make sure to get there a little early so that you can find a parking spot. Overall, attending Radford University was a great experience.

It did a lot to prepare me for life in the field of social work. It is not very diverse, however the education is worth it! The classrooms are a small to medium size so it is easy to get to know and connect one on one with your professors. It has great opportunities for internships and much more!!!
