Congratulations to Roanoke College, listed in the Princeton Review with not only one of the prettiest campuses around, but also for their well-rounded academia for majors in business and other degrees!
Pulled from part of Roanoke College's official announcement of this fantastic achievement:
"Roanoke College has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, according to students surveyed by The Princeton Review. The annual guidebook also lists Roanoke among the nation's great schools for majors in business and finance, computer science and computer engineering and psychology.
The College's scenic setting, marked by its classic Collegiate Gothic architecture and mountain views, was No. 18 in a ranking of the top 20 beautiful colleges and universities that is published in the 2012 edition of The Princeton Review's Best 376 Colleges. The book, in its 20th edition, was released on Aug. 2.
Roanoke debuts in this well-known guidebook that lists enrollment and admission statistics, rankings of the top 20 schools in 62 categories and survey results from 122,000 students attending undergraduate institutions named to the publication's prestigious honor roll.
Roanoke's offerings for students who major in business and finance, computer science and computer engineering and psychology helped the College to be named among The Princeton Review's best schools in these academic subjects. The Princeton Review uses institutional data and input from the National College Counselor Advisory Panel and its own admissions experts to determine the best colleges and universities for 15 of the most popular undergraduate majors.
Also, opportunities throughout the region to experience the outdoors, explore downtown Roanoke and drive to nearby Blacksburg and Natural Bridge enhance life at Roanoke College, students said. On campus, Roanoke's Greek scene and a wealth of weekend events are highlights.
"Life at Roanoke is, to put it simply, pretty sweet," The Princeton Review concluded.
Six buildings on Roanoke's campus are listed on both the Virginia Landmarks Register and National Register of Historic Places, including the Administration Building and the former Roanoke County courthouse. The campus, with its manicured lawns and classic look, sits in an ideal location for outdoor adventures. The nearby Blue Ridge Mountains offer quick access to hiking, climbing, biking and more."
