Randolph-Macon is a family, everyone there is so nice and always supports each other. The sports teams are great, the academics are great, and the overall feel of the school is so home-like. I couldn't ask for a better fit! You have to visit Randolph-Macon College

Taylor

Randolph-Macon is nice school. I am currently a freshman and though it was an adjustment, I love my life here. The administration was easy to work with. They really want to ensure your happiness here. Residence Life is especially nice. I was able to get to room with my best friend after she had already went through two roommates. The dining hall food is less than to be desired sometimes but Mondo's and Greenberry's are always reliable. Something is always going, whether it's being hosted by greek life or the Harry Potter Club. It is a small school, so you will know a lot of the people on campus. The classes are challenging but also fun. There are some very quirky professors but they are the best ones. Overall, Randolph-Macon is a good place to be. 10/10: Would choose again.

Julia

Randolph-Macon College is absolutely amazing!I have no issues with getting the help I need through meeting with professors and the HAC. Although food could be better, i've heard we are getting a new cooking staff next Fall! So that's good. Overall, I would highly recommend this College to any High School Senior who is looking for a very well rounded undergraduate education and looking for a quality College experience.

Caroline

The educational opportunities are wonderful, the class and small and challenging, and the professors care about their students' education. The social life is sub par, there is not much to do unless you are of legal drinking age, and the college administration are very difficult to work with.

Knowing these things can affect decisions on friends, classes, degrees, and your entire future. While you may not have an exact plan for your entire future and career goals, and you do have time to figure it out, don't stop thinking about it or assume it will work itself out.

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    The resources and tunnel vision toward being sucessful. Everything is geared toward helping you as a person grow individually and academically, and the resources available are fansatsic to helping students gain confidence to be sucessful. The student body is concerned with learning and takes the initiative to learn on their own and to ask professors for guidance. This environment makes you want to learn more and try harder to grasp the concepts at hand. At R-MC, the whole person is vauled and you are very much an individual that professors, students, staff and administrators remember just after one introduction.
