Joseph Rudolph is both a high academic achiever and a passionate outdoorsman. Radford University offered him the opportunity to attain a quality education in a setting with ample opportunities for recreation.
Knowing that he wanted to be an active part of the university community through student-centered leadership clubs and organizations, Rudolph was impressed with what the university had to offer. Through club activities, academic opportunities and outdoor excursions, Rudolph says that his academic career has been a full mind and body experience.
“Beyond the computer lab and studying, some of the best times I had were at the Peters Hall rock climbing wall, hitting the playing field with buddies for intramural soccer or flag football, and heading out and up the mountains with RU Outdoors,” said Rudolph.
Rudolph looks back on his time at Radford University with pride and gratitude.
“I am celebrating my own achievements at Radford with full knowledge that I owe a debt of gratitude to all of the people who have encouraged and mentored me,” he said.
