I love the size of the classes! Because they are smaller you have more of an opportunity to participate in class and ask questions. I feel that there is a good variety of courses here, but they don't have some majors that some people are looking for. But, even though that is true, you can usually talk with your advisor and kind of create your own major.
I absolutely love the professors. The curriculum is very challenging and since it's such a small school you get a lot more help and attention than from a larger university. The only problem is the social life. It's very Greek oriented and if you aren't Greek it's very hard to thrive socially. The party scene is huge on campus but again, very niche oriented and exclusive. The campus is not very diverse but there is a movement to try to change that.
I am absolutely in love with my school. A small school is not for everyone but it was perfect for me. Randolph-Macon has given me the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone. With such a small school you truly get to know your professors on a one-on-one basis. They will notice if you miss class and some will even check up on you because they truly care about their students. Take advantage of office hours, professors have them for a reason. If I were given the opportunity to choose a school over again I would definitely still choose Randolph-Macon. It gives students an experience they would not get at a large school. It is true when people say you cannot walk down the sidewalk without seeing the smiling face of someone you know and I love that about my school.
