Randolph-Macon College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


More information about all the majors and minors offered. If you have an idea of what you want to major in, I suggest you request as much information about it as possible. And maybe even visit classes in progress to see if you would like the major or minor before declaring.


That it would be a little bit hard to schedule classes because it is such a small school. But its very encouraging to know that the faculty and staff will help you to get everything you need done.


I wish I knew that the tution would increase each year.


I wish I wasn't to proud/scared/ashamed to ask for help. I wish I could do my first semister all over again.


I wish I had brought less stuff to my dorm.


I wish I would have known what a financial burden it was going to be on my family. After the recruiting visit, my parents told me that we could make it work because they saw what a great fit the school was for me with; the small classes, volleyball opportunity and location of the school. Ever since freshman year my family has struggled to help me make it through the full academic year, and while I work as much as I can in between seasons, I often feel very guilty and am constantly struggling financially.
