Professors who will see great things in you

At Roanoke, professors spot talent. They will know you and what you are capable of perhaps better than you do at first. They are teacher-scholar-leader-coach-friends all in one.

What you learn from your Roanoke professors and the connections you have with them are likely to last a lifetime. Just ask the alumni who graduated before you were born and still count their Roanoke professors as some of the most influential people in their lives-the people who saw great things in them and set them on their way to achieving them.
