About Randolph-Macon College

Nearly two centuries ago, Randolph-Macon College was born of a need that the United Methodist Church had for educated ministers to spread their new faith in the new republic. Since its founding in 1830, the mission of the college has been to develop the minds and characters of young men and women who come to Randolph-Macon from all over the United States and throughout the world. Through personal interaction that occurs between our faculty and students, this "hand cultivation" has bonded relationships that last a lifetime. Randolph-Macon promotes the freedom and confidence that a liberal arts education instills in students who leave the college as leaders and life-long learners. Our graduates have made their marks in the halls of government, in boardrooms, operating rooms and classrooms. Some have achieved financial prosperity and others popular acclaim. Most have made a difference in their communities. All share a bond in that Randolph-Macon nurtured their dreams and helped them take the steps that made these dreams a reality. These bonds, these dreams and these achievements are the intangibles that connect graduates, faculty and staff of the college across generations. For more information, click here.
