Creating your own life plan is what sets Roanoke apart When you leave Roanoke you have a plan you're ready to live. Working closely with you, we help you chart your path through college. We push you to challenge assumptions about the world and your role in it, building confidence and a strong sense of personal authority. Through experiences in and outside the classroom, you acquire the knowledge and skills you'll need to make a real contribution. Giving you the tools to create and live your own plan is what distinguishes a Roanoke education.
