Editor’s Note: The Times-Dispatch article incorrectly reports that first-year student Eric Struble is attending Randolph on “a full athletic scholarship”. Struble is actually the recipient of a Presidential Scholar award, the College’s highest academic scholarship. As an NCAA Division III institution, Randolph does not offer any athletic scholarships. We have requested that the newspaper run a correction.
