At Roanoke, Experiential Learning opportunities place students in authentic, real-world contexts and prompt them to draw deliberate connections between knowledge and skills gained through classroom learning and that gained through these real-world experiences. Participation leads to academic skill development, personal and professional growth, and help students develop a passion for possible career paths. Find your Passion. Find your Path.
