Academics at Selu

Radford University's Selu Conservancy is used as an indoor and outdoor classroom and research site. The “Barn” houses a science lab for field work and aviary on the lower level, a multi-purpose room on the main floor, and the attached silo is home of the observatory for astronomy classes and research. Selu is also home to "The Farm at Selu" offering interpretive tours of farm life in the 1930s, the RU ABLE ropes course, community garden, and acres of trails, river, and nature.
