The school is almost falling apart at this point. I work in the Res Life staff and we have gone through four bosses in the last year, and have had months with no boss at all. The Athletics Director, Dean, Student Engagement Coordinator, all resigned this year and the replacements are either temporary or floundering.

If you are wanting to go here for the riding program then don't, it's being shut down. If you want to go here for a diverse education then don't, we no longer offer concentrations in any world regions besides the U.S. or Europe. If you want to come here for the sports then make sure you don't actually like to win.

The dorms are hit or miss. I lived in Bell and had barely any complaints, but Main Hall is disgusting and the showers are cold 70% of the time.

Cost is 50k a semester. They will throw aid at you, so it's likely you wont be paying more than 15 (more like 11-12), but even then that is not worth the experience.

I love the small community and the fact that every teacher here knows me personally. I believe the classrooms are different from other colleges and universities because of the connection we have with the teachers and also each other. I am guaranteed to run into a new person from one of my classes and become acquainted with them. I come from Richmond, VA which is pretty big and it is nice to be able to enjoy the rural area in which Randolph College is located. The activity council here at Randolph is quite amazing also. Recently MAC our activity council took students to Washington D.C. to visit and explore. I love our community because we trust each other and want to befriend everyone. Randolph is such a small school, everyone is open to new relationships. That is one of the reasons I enjoy being a Wildcat. I am so proud to be apart of this community that I call home.
Randolph is a great environment to further your education. The people there are very friendly and helpful. Whenever in need, someone will be there to guide you. The professor enjoy teaching the students in their specific field of study and are a great source for information. I highly recommend Randolph College.
