Randolph-Macon is an undergraduate, coeducational college of the liberal arts. The purpose of a Randolph-Macon education is to develop the mind and the character of its students. They are challenged to communicate effectively, to think analytically and critically, to experience and appreciate the creative process, to develop qualities of leadership, and to synthesize what they know with who they are.
At Randolph-Macon College the liberal arts constitute a comprehensive educational opportunity. The curriculum includes exposure both to broad perspectives and specific concepts. Students explore the natural and social sciences, the arts, and the humanities, while they also achieve a deeper understanding of the single discipline in which they major. They are guided in this endeavor by a faculty of teacher-scholars who are dedicated to the liberal arts and active in their professional disciplines and in the extra-curricular life of the campus.
As an athlete and member of Alpha Phi Omega, Theta Omega chapter, I've found many ways to entertain myself outside of the classroom. The college offers a nook for everyone willing to lend their time to an extra club or organization; Greek life, varsity athletics, intramural sports, clubs and external activities such as Army ROTC keep the varieties of these options fresh. The staff and faculty are incredibly friendly; there isn't a problem finding a group of friends at this college.Read More
The campus is like it's own community and everyone finds their own group of friends to fit into very quickly. The campus is really nice on sunny days when you can take a blanket and sit out on the grass and do work. I love being able to walk around campus and wave to people I know and not have to walk forever to get to my classes.Read More
I get to know my professors here well. They know my name, and that personal relationship was important to me for my college education. It's not hard to know a good number of people at the college, whether staff, faculty, or students, because of the small school environment. When you get involved in different campus activities, you'll find that you can get to know different types of people on campus. The smaller numbers makes it easier to see the different activities that different students are involved in: you get to mix it up, but still build relationships...and I think that makes it very enjoyable.Read More
I came here, as I said earlier, from a community college. I had no intention of being very involved on campus in terms of extra curricular activities or really even taking advantage of many of the college services as it was just not something I was used to. That quickly changed when I learned about all that this college had to offer. I joined the Political Science Student Association, the Young Democrats, and am the re-founding member of our colony of Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity (by the way, I hated the notion of Going Greek when I got here). I'm actually kind of sad that I'll graduate in Spring 2012.Read More
Randolph-Macon College is amazing. Everyone is extremely considerate of one another and you get to know everyone. By attending RMC, you will meet some of the greatest people ever because they make you feel like family and believe in helping others. The campus is small and has a home feeling to it, which allows you to fit right in and not feel so home sick.Read More
