Randolph College Reviews
To start, the both the campus and student population are small. However, Students tend to be very friendly and non-judgmental, and because the classes are so small, teachers are direct to each and help each individual student in case they need it. The dorms aren't too bad, and since everything is really close together, it makes it easy to get around without having to really drive anywhere. The only real "negative" about the place, is the fact that the food is not incredibly good. The school, however, features a convenience store where students are able to go and purchase small snacks using money the school gives you ($350 your first year, and the plan is interchangeable, see the school for more details). Hours go from when they open, which varies, all the way up to 1:00 AM, which is honestly really handy when you get hungry while you're studying. Aside from the food, the school is great, and I love going here, just wish it tasted better haha.
The professors here do have an agenda. Hate to say it but most suck at recognizing mental health issues, and a lot of recent things have occurred, like the fact that they started an MFA program, but got rid of their riding program, their study abroad program, and their Asian history focus for the history major. Plus a bunch of people just retired and/or left that worked there. The disability coordinator treated people awfully this past spring 2018, but she retired. They have students there who draw swastikas on pieces of paper, and the diversity needs improvement. Also, their dean of the college refuses to allow a sign language class, and really anyone with a physical disability should not go there because not all buildings have elevators. Plus, if you are lgbt you are accepted by most, but if you are not white, they suck at dealing with racism on campus.
Randolph college is a very good college. They provide many tools to help the students with any academic problems they may come across during their time at the college. The school is quite small so there is lots of access to help from professors and staff at the school. So far with any issue, I have been able to find the help that I need with no problems.
