Underappreciated by students. There are problems as with any other institution, but the attention you get from faculty and staff sets kids up for success. Very easy to get involved if your willing. Student life has changed a lot recently. Cliques are becoming less of a problem, people are branching out and becoming more accepting. I graduated with a 3.0 and have had no trouble finding a job due to the fact that Randolph provided me opportunities to get experience outside the classroom.
The school site had different sorts of majors, but when I began my freshman year there wasn't that many options. If anyone desires to attend this college try to have what you want to major in already planned out. The students on the campus are very cliquey. Unless you attend the college with a friend, are apart of a sport, or are a social butterfly, then making friends will be extremely tough. I began my year without a roommate, but was lucky enough to have met a circled of people while on a trip who looked as lost as I did. D-hall food is bound to make you use the bathroom at least 15 minutes after consuming it. I thought it was just me, but turns out it was majority of the campus. Skellar is fine, but way overpriced. Unless you have transportation, you will more than likely spend your time on campus bored. The students do not know how to party whatsoever. Drinking until you pass out is not a party, its stupidity.
I love the area of town it is placed in, it is so pretty! The drive down is a nice scenic drive, and it's just as gorgeous once you arrive on the campus. The students are all extremely friendly, and it's just a nice environment to be in.
