Life here is what you make it. Academics are tough but the teachers are amazing if you can find them. Diversity is a thing at Randolph-Macon if you want to live like the Jim Crow days, where there is a whole lot of white and nothing else. Sports here are fantastic when there is a game you will see the unconditional support that the school has for its team. Fraternity and sorority life is the way to go. The parties there are spectacular if you can get in that is. The President of Randolph-Macon cares so much about his school that he Is building a science center for us, which will be where current and new students will be sleeping because all the dorm rooms will be filled putting at least three people to a room. Isn’t that exciting. Sure, way to make friends is to live with two other people in your personal space, stepping on your things because there isn’t enough closet space for all the things you bought.
So, come on down to RMC the happiest place to be!
Review Randolph-Macon College
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.
