Life at Randolph

Randolph College is the ultimate small college experience.

We’ve got the dorms of your dreams. The Princeton Review even called them “palaces.” Most of our roomy residence halls are mixed-year, so it’s easy to make friends across classes. All come equipped with high-speed Internet and handy kitchens.

Choose from dozens of clubs and student organizations —Food and Justice Club, WWRM student radio station, Pan World Club—or start your own. There has to be another vegetarian, Spanish-speaking juggler out there somewhere (“Menos Pollo! Más Pelotas!”).

The WildCats are always on the prowl for new recruits to our NCAA Division III sports teams, now fielding five men’s squads, including basketball, tennis, lacrosse, soccer and cross country, and seven women's teams: basketball, cross country, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Our champion riding program is coed and one of the best in the nation and our intramural ping-pong program is nothing to sneeze at either. We also have a thing for traditions . Some extremely old, some extremely silly, all extremely important. (Note to the class of 2014: steer clear of the right side of the Main Hall stairs. Just trust us.)

Our hometown of Lynchburg is a picture postcard college town with 16,000 students and enough tasty restaurants, clubs, movie theaters and late-night hangouts to keep you busy for four years of Friday nights. We’re also minutes from the Blue Ridge Mountains, a camping and hiking paradise. Schedule a visit to our historic, scenic campus and get hooked on Randolph for good.
