Jose Marquez-Ramos ’21

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, and personalized visits may be scheduled through our visit app or by emailing

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.

Jose Marquez-Ramos ’21 is a political science major and Spanish/history minor. He is also a Spanish tutor and has been a member of the College’s Model UN team. We asked him a few questions about his Randolph experience so far:

What’s your favorite thing about Randolph?

“The people here have really made Randolph a second home. Initially, I thought I would be homesick, but Randolph College has become my second home and with the help of my friends, I’ve grown to love it.”

What’s your favorite place or thing on campus to show prospective students?

“My favorite thing to show students is the Student Center in main. The reason why is because the Student Center is where all students come together for food, a homework session, or a MAC event. For a first-year, this would be the place to go to meet new people!”

What advice would you give to prospective students about choosing a college? 

“My biggest fear as I was applying to college was if I was going to matter. Randolph is interested in you and your future. You are never just going to be a student for them. You will be more than that, and as a prospective student, you should take that into consideration.”
