    Roanoke College doesn’t mince words or experience. That’s why we give you a 100% Real-World Learning Guarantee. Internships and service learning. Research and work study. Pure and simple, you’ll finish here with hands-on, real-world, resume-building experience.

    With internships at some of the best places to work, learn and build a career — and a global alumni network of Maroons looking out for Maroons — your post-college job search might be over before graduation.  

  • You won’t have to wait for interesting elective classes. Our core curriculum bakes non-traditional topics and practical lessons into 100-level, first-year courses. 

“Mentors will guide you to be curious, creative and courageous in exploring who you want to be and how you want to show up in the world.”
