Top Ten Reasons to Attend Randolph College

You will live on a beautiful campus in an area full of history and outdoor adventure.

Randolph has one of the most beautiful college campuses anywhere. Its classic brick buildings are situated on 100 acres in the historic Rivermont district of Lynchburg, Virginia .

Many of the buildings are connected by elevated, enclosed corridors called trolleys that enhance the safety and security of the campus.

Just 20 minutes driving distance away are the Blue Ridge Mountains , which are clearly visible from campus. The mountains afford numerous fishing, hiking, camping, rock-climbing, canoeing, kayaking, and snow skiing opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast. Also nearby is historic Appomattox, and both Charlottesville and Washington, DC are comfortable day-trip destinations.

Lynchburg is home to about 20,000 students among five colleges, giving the city a vibrant feel in a scenic, historic setting.
