4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Being at randolph college it has given me ample opportunity to expand my resume for life outside of the red brick wall and become the best I can be in my carrier of choice. Going to randolph college< I have been given a voice to state my opinions and then seeing my statement being put into action by administration and or the Randolph community. I have have been given the opportunity to be a better leader in more than one aspect, in the classroom and out of it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are good at teaching their subject, but then there are some as to where there's no hope in truly understanding what they are teaching.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I haven't tried out the job/internship program at Randolph, so I'm not sure.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: AC is the main problem on the campus. It gets really hot from August til mid September. Some rooms are extremely cramped.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Student athletes mainly socialize with other student athletes, leaving everyone else in the wind.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school site had different sorts of majors, but when I began my freshman year there wasn't that many options. If anyone desires to attend this college try to have what you want to major in already planned out. The students on the campus are very cliquey. Unless you attend the college with a friend, are apart of a sport, or are a social butterfly, then making friends will be extremely tough. I began my year without a roommate, but was lucky enough to have met a circled of people while on a trip who looked as lost as I did. D-hall food is bound to make you use the bathroom at least 15 minutes after consuming it. I thought it was just me, but turns out it was majority of the campus. Skellar is fine, but way overpriced. Unless you have transportation, you will more than likely spend your time on campus bored. The students do not know how to party whatsoever. Drinking until you pass out is not a party, its stupidity.

Health & Safety: It's the one topic on campus that's pushed under the rug constantly. Not sure how many sexual assaults occur on campus but I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them happen and go unreported.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are generally the only reason I'm still here. They're engaging, entertaining, and very knowledgeable about their subjects. However, some professors are lovely people but suck at teaching.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The college offers lots of internships on campus, as well as offering opportunities to find internships off campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It all depends on where you live and who you have as an RA. Personally, I've had both good and bad experiences so far in my housing. Definitely not enough space and everything is still very much out of date.

Greek Life: We may not have official greek life but we have "secret societies" that dedicate themselves to drinking and they can be very annoying.

Athletics: I don't particularly care about sports. we do well but the athletes tend to act like a giant clique and it is very high school like.

Overall Experience: Randolph has many great traditions and a beautiful campus, though it can be hard to break out of your shell if you are not social due to size of the school.

Greek Life: There isn't greek life here. We tried to get it and we were told we were just trying to encourage rape because apparently all frats are rape dungeons. So, yea, good luck with that.

Party Scene: Good luck finding a party that isn't 5 people smoking drugs or getting violently drunk until they feel mildly OK with their life here.

Party Scene: There are very few parties. People mostly stick to small cliques and they get as intoxicated as possible as often as possible. But I don't consider these parties because they're literally doing it to cope.

Academics: Teachers have an agenda and an ideology. They want you to agree. If you disagree they'll grade you more harshly. Many of the professors outside of the Business/Econ departments are openly communists. They're proud of it. It doesn't matter what you feel about communism, because get ready to be forced to agree with it for the sake of a grade. And no, I don't mean socialists. We have plenty of those too, but the professors themselves prefer the label of communism. I have one teacher who unironically advocated calling people capitalist pigs.

Drug Safety: Everyone here is on SOMETHING to cope. Most people pop addy or smoke weed. I drink as often as I can without risking any harm to myself or my grades. People here are seriously depressed and drugs are the main coping mechanism. If you're not into that be prepared to get isolated or to end up with the creepy straight-edge kids. They're all quiet, unsure how socialization works, and unwilling to stop watching anime in the study areas.

Health & Safety: People steal things like crazy. We recently had a rash of social security numbers getting stolen. SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS. I've seen people get their bank accounts cleared out like it's nothing because their roommate learned their pin and swiped their card. Do not - under any circumstance - leave your door unlocked. The honor code is a hollow shell that no one follows. Don't trust people here.

There's also a bit of a rape epidemic, and nothing gets done about it.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: This place is a literal trap. PLEASE don't come here. The faculty and staff will lie to you to pull you in and once you're here it's impossibly hard to transfer out. There's a cult-like atmosphere and resisting those involved will get you harassed. The professors try to indoctrinate people into their various political ideologies. If you complain or resist your grades will be tanked. Buyer please beware, no one deserves to waste the best four years of their life here.

Overall Experience: A degree from here is essentially worthless. Sure, the paper might get you a job, but you won't actually learn anything that can be used in a workplace. Classes are essentially busy work that don't really benefit anyone. It's a huge joke.

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Heat doesn't work. AC doesn't work. And if you NEED AC for a medical issue then good luck, because they won't give you one unless your room is facing a very specific direction. They don't like people having AC units that can be seen from outside of the campus or from front campus. So if you're looking out over the front portion of the school and you NEED AC for a medical reason then they relocate you to a tiny broom-closet single tucked away somewhere and tell you to make it work.

Regular rooms are insanely small. Things are cramped with one person. Bigger rooms exist, but good luck getting them here. The lottery system is ineffective at best. Oh, and seniors get put in the worst dorms by default to trick Freshman into thinking the dorms are nicer than they are. There's a dorm that's essentially our ghetto. It's called Webb. It's where they send upperclassmen as a reward for wasting $85,000 on tuition over their first two years. If they try to put you there flat-out refuse. No heat, no AC allowed, no bunking beds, and the rooms are smaller than the closets in my home. I swear I'm being literal about all of this: it isn't a fun time.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics here aren't terrible. They offer a few interesting sports that some schools don't have. Fencing and horseback riding are both popular options.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: Everything they tell you here is false. Don't trust their claims of "good food" or "high speed internet." The food here makes about ~30% of students perpetually sick. I've eaten at a dozen other colleges and this one is by far the worst in terms of dining hall. There are only two other places on campus to get food: the "Skellar" and the "Red Door." Both are INSANELY overpriced. And good luck keeping to dhall food. Even if it doesn't make you sick, they charge you a meal EVERY time you walk into dhall. I hope you don't need to go to the bathroom during a meal, because they'll charge you as if you ate two meals. This leads to many people running out of meals before the end of the week and that might actually be a good thing because at least they don't have to eat the trash they're serving us.

The community here is cult-like. There are ideologies that you aren't allowed to publicly disagree with without being harassed. The worst one of those: having sex after taking a single sip of alcohol is considered rape here--I'm not even exaggerating. One sip of a beer before you have sex and you're considered a rape victim, so long as you aren't male.

The internet here is so bad that it interferes with my ability to get my work done. They insist on installing spyware onto your computer to monitor your activities. If you refuse to let them do that then you can't get online unless you're good at tricking the network's security protocols. They constantly lie to us and say we're going to get high-speed internet, but don't trust them. They've been saying that for four years now and I'm about to graduate without ever seeing this "high-speed" internet they claim we'll get. Oh, and if you're into video games then stay away, because all of my friends who play online find themselves lagging so hard that they might as well not play.

Oh, and the classes here are insane. The professors tend to have an ideology and you damn well better agree with it, or you'll have a bad time.

Health & Safety: There is no campus crime that I have heard about personally. I always feel safe on campus no matter the time and Randolph have taken precautions to have emergency phones at good locations on campus.
