Randolph and other private colleges from around the state will celebrate Virginia Private College Week July 22-27. Registration for personalized visits during the week is now open at http://www.randolphcollege.edu/admission/visit/.
The event provides rising high school juniors and seniors—and their families—as well as prospective transfer students the opportunity to learn more about the vast array of educational offerings in the state. The week is sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).
During the week, Randolph and other participating colleges will offer tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid, and academic and extracurricular programs. Students who visit three participating colleges during this week will also receive three application fee waivers. These waivers can be used at any CICV college. In addition, there will be two drawings for a $250 Amazon gift card—one contest among students who visit at least three colleges and another for someone who posts on social media using #VaPrivateCollegeWeek.
Randolph College will feature tour and information sessions at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
“It is an excellent opportunity to get an initial look at the College during summer,” said Joy McGrath, associate director of admissions. “We invite everyone back to attend one of our Open Houses or Open Campus Days or an individualized visit that could include attending a class, meeting with a professor, and eating in the dining hall.”
