Randolph College is excited to host prospective students and their families in a series of open houses this spring. The full schedule is available at http://www.randolphcollege.edu/admission/visit/, and personalized visits may be scheduled through our visit app or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In preparation for the big day, we’d like to introduce you to some of our Gold Key Tour Guides—the students who will show you around campus and answer your questions about the Randolph experience.
Kyle Wade ’20 is a double major in sport and exercise studies and biology from Williamsburg, Va. He is also a chemistry minor. We asked him a few questions about his Randolph experience so far:
What do you like most about being a student at Randolph?
“What I enjoy the most about Randolph is the fact that the professors here want to see you improve and achieve any career path that you desire. College is difficult as it is, yet having professors that care for your success makes life in college a bit less stressful. And here I feel like that’s the case.
What’s your favorite part of campus to show prospective students? Or, what’s your favorite fun fact to tell them about Randolph?
“One of my most favorite places to show a prospective student on campus is the residence hall rooms as well as the dinning hall. Here they will spend the most hours out of their day socializing and doing homework. For me as a student-athlete, I am always hungry and there is always something to find during any meal of the day. And if I am busy, I can always grab and go from Skeller or Conway Corner. I spend a lot of time in my room because I get to have space and focus on my school work or hang with friends.”
What advice would you give prospective students about choosing a college?
“My father told me this: ‘Be somewhere where teachers know you by name, and not by a student number.'”
