Macon Movers help new students move in.
On Wednesday, September 1, 2010, nearly 400 new students arrived at Randolph-Macon
College. As in years past, the Macon Movers gave them a warm welcome by helping
to unpack their cars and move into their residence halls. Macon Movers is comprised
of nearly 100 R-MC students, faculty and staff members who wear special T-shirts
so they are recognizable to anyone needing assistance.
