What is your overall opinion of this school?

Originally, Randolph-Macon College was not on my list of potential colleges. I only applied because I had heard that R-MC gave a lot of financial aid, and I need financial support to be able to attend college. I only decided to attend because of the financial benefit to me, but honestly, I really do like the environment at R-MC. I like the liberal arts approach to education, and all of the professors I have had so far have been engaged and unendingly helpful. Everyone on the campus is very nice and helpful as well; however, R-MC does lack diversity in its student body. There are also some issues with the food on campus, but nothing too major, since there are a few options to choose from, and fast food restaurants are also nearby.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The class sizes are great and the professors are very knowledgeable. Food is not very good and there is little choice for Greek life. The housing is alright, either you get an old hall or a new one. Overall it is a good small private school for academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Randolph-Macon! Because of the size of the school, I have been able to take advantage of multiple opportunities that I would not have had without being a student here, including studying abroad multiple times. The professors are great, and really know what they're talking about, and they are here to help, and they really want to! The food is not the best, but it has gotten better in the last couple years, so efforts are being made. The friends I've made here will surely last a lifetime, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the school as an academic entity. Our classes are the perfect size (25 max). There are so many opportunities to get involved and succeed. We have free tutoring and paid summer research programs. Professors will use their connections to help students reach full time employment by graduation. I know all of my professors on a first name basis. It is a small campus so it is easy to make friends. The food is not great but is improving. On campus housing is based on a lottery determined by academic credits— because of this, you can either end up somewhere very nice or an absolute dump. Ashland is a very small town and a car is recommended. However, the surrounding Richmond area is fantastic and there are so many fun things to do. We have a big weekend party scene but there are plenty of other things to do if partying is not your thing. We have free movies, late night free food, etc. Personally, our education is better than even some ivy league schools. If I had to do it over again, I would still come back to Macon.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

During my time at Randolph-Macon, I underwent a lot of individual development as every college student does. The institution was very supportive of this with its facilities and liberal arts approach to academics, however, I felt as though sometimes it was too broad. While I loved my major in communications and I had an emphasis, I wish there had been more opportunities to pursue topics more extensively. As I mentioned, Randolph-Macon has great facilities for its students (all of its services are unlimitedly free for students - tutoring, writing aid and counsoling) and it is well connected (they put a great deal of effort into making sure students feel prepared for the step following graduation with their career center and events), however, it is limited to a very small scale of connections. During my studies I realized my hunger for life and success would take me out of Virginia and maybe even the US, while they offer attractive semester abroad programs thats about as far as it went. They also have a great internship database, but it is centralized in the surrounding area namely. While this is great for students who wish to stay in that "bubble" or a neighboring one, it can be very isolating to those who do not. The class size and in particular the staff, really make for a personal education and I really felt like I had deep relationships with many of my professors and the staff I came in connect with, which I would not have had without the small school atmosphere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Randolph-Macon College is the epitome of a small liberal arts college, and it lives up to this stigma. Students gain a broad education, and even in classes that aren't catered to their major, students recieve important skills they can utilize everywhere. The unique sturucture of the school allows students to have full access to their professors, the school's faculty, and their peers. More than anything, Randolph-Macon is committed to creating a stable future for their students in anyway they can, whether that be through the edge career center, the manipulation of alumni resources, the liberal arts curriculum, the emphasis placed on writing at the college, student extracurriculars and the close-knit community the college offers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Randolph-Macon is a small private school with a lot to offer. The class sizes are small (usually < 25 people) and the professors are very involved and are eager to help their students. Currently Housing and parking at Randolph-Macon are lacking due to the fact that Randolph-Macon is trying to expand their student body, however it is comfortable. The quality of the housing is wonderful, especially in Andrews Hall, Thomas Branch, and the Birdsong Senior apartments which look directly over Randolph-Macon's Day Field. The campus is small, spanning only a few blocks. It takes about 10-15 minuets to walk from one end of the campus to the other. The student body is diverse and welcomes people from all races and ethnicity. The Professors and academic advisers at Randolph-Macon genuinely want to see you succeed and will push you to achieve your fullest potential. The academic atmosphere at Randolph-Macon is incredibly competitive. My fellow classmates are very involved with their academics, but they are welcoming, encouraging, and friendly towards new students and anybody who would like to participate in any activities on campus. Randolph-Macon has a lot of academic tools to be used such as the free tutoring offered through the HAC, The Edge Career Connection Center, and wonderful librarians that will help you find the right material for your research paper. The most notable programs at Randolph-Macon are the Edge Career Connection Center, and their Study Abroad program. At the Edge Career Connection Center they offer everything from help building your resume and preparing to go on job interviews to providing internship and job opportunities. The Study Abroad program at Randolph-Macon provides the students with extraordinary opportunities to study abroad and connect with the international community. To study abroad at Randolph- Macon is easy because the tuition you pay towards Randolph-Macon will also go towards the tuition you pay to study abroad, therefore you do not have to pay tuition twice if a student decides to study abroad. As for the food, its sub par, however the school is taking measures to improve it through student survey and cooperation. Overall Randolph-Macon is a Wonderful school for students who thrive in an intimate academic setting with small class sizes. At Randolph-Macon no student is just a number.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are looking for a small college that feels like home, Randolph-Macon is the place to be. The faculty and staff are always approachable and willing to help. Greek life is active, but not super important. Intercollegiate and recreational sports are very important to the culture but so are academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I find this college academically stimulating and fun. There are small class sizes, so professors know the names of their students. There is also many extracurricular activities that students can partake in during the weekends or even during the week. I personally like this college.
