Radford University has been named by The Princeton Review as one of the best 138 colleges in the Southeast. 2015 marks the seventh time Radford University has been rated as one of the best colleges in the Southeast by The Princeton Review since 2008.
"We are honored that The Princeton Review has recognized Radford University's commitment to a quality education with a student-centered focus," said RU President Penelope W. Kyle. "This accolade is recognition of the diverse opportunities we offer our students, as well as recognition of our committed faculty and staff, who continually strive to offer our students an excellent, affordable education."
In the ‘Radford Students Say' section under the Academics and Majors portion of the evaluation, The Princeton Review reports: Students call our attention to the business, nursing, education, and interior design programs in particular. "The professors here would have to be Radford's greatest strength," says a communication major. Many faculty members are "very personable, affable, and helpful." They "want to teach." "They're easy to get in touch with and easy to talk to and ask questions," adds a sociology major. Also, "classes are smaller, which makes it easier to get one on one attention."
According to The Princeton Review, the 138 colleges chosen for its "Best in the Southeast" designations are located in twelve states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. The Princeton Review also designated 158 colleges in the Midwest, 226 colleges in the Northeast and 123 colleges in the West as best in their locales on the 2015 "Best Colleges: Region by Region" lists.
