Randolph-Macon College Reviews
Food: The food is alright, but because there are only 3 places to choose from, you get bored of the options really quickly. 3 places to eat at (1 is a small "cafe"). Dining hall estes is edible, but since they have tried to be "diverse" with their cooking, things have not been good.
Education: The education at RMC is extremely rigorous and difficult! I am a smart student, IB diploma recipient, top 5% in high school, yet received a 2.5 first semester. The professors are there to help, and somewhat care about you, but dont even think about asking them to round up your grades or for extra credit. ALSO RMC CREDITS TRANSFER HORRIBLY
If you are looking an easy major or easy workload of classes, DO NOT come to this school. The learning is fast-paced and very hard.
