What will you major in/study? Business
Why did you choose the school? “I choose Roanoke because it was voted one of the best campuses in the country. It’s a great academic school and will help me a lot for my future after college. They are always in contention to win the National Championship. The area is surrounded by a huge mountain range and has great weather. Coach (Bill) Pilat made me feel very comfortable on my visit. I knew that Roanoke was above every other school I was looking at. I know Roanoke is very close to wining another National Championship.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my family for putting up with this whole process/me. Also, my friends for helping me out through the crazy times……Most important follow me on Twitter @DaleSmith37.”
