With an enrollment of 1,454 students, R-MC has an outstanding reputation for its exceptional faculty, national and international internships, study abroad, undergraduate, research and its unique First-Year Experience programs. The distinctive balance between the demanding academic program and the individualized attention -- these special “moments of connection,” -- prepares each student for a lifetime of extraordinary success.
R-MC enrolls nearly 1,500 undergraduate students, who pursue their academic paths in more than 55 areas of study, including majors, minors, pre-professional programs and other areas. Randolph-Macon has a longstanding reputation for giving our students an “edge.” R-MC integrates an outstanding liberal arts education and success strategies taught by extraordinary faculty mentors with a four-year career preparation program called the EDGE. Dedicated staff in the EDGE Career Center, in concert with our faculty, work with students to develop a personalized Career Roadmap that provides them with a competitive advantage with their careers and when applying to graduate school.
A Randolph-Macon College liberal arts education develops the mind and character of each student.
