R-MC Campus Master Plan
Phase one of Randolph-Macon College’s Campus Master Plan is well underway. Development of the Plan, which was approved in February 2009 by the college’s Board of Trustees, was a collaborative process involving faculty, staff, students, alumni, trustees and members of the surrounding community. The Plan is intended to take the college well into the next 20 to 30 years by suggesting the best use of the college’s land and facility resources. Priorities for Phase One consist of several projects centered on academics, athletics and student life:
Andrews Hall, a 108-bed, suite-style freshmen residence facility opened in August 2011. The building has a geothermal HVAC system and will include a central living area for all freshmen.Construction on the John B. Werner Pavilion at the McGraw-Page Library was completed in September 2012. The 3,300-square-foot pavilion provides a 24/7 study space.The new Hugh Stephens Field at Estes Park was completed in spring 2011. The new football field was moved to a north-south position. The new Day Field opened in September 2012.
Haley Hall renovations are complete and include new furniture, new doors and windows, and classroom upgrades with audio visual equipment.
Fox Hall renovations of new furniture, new windows and classroom upgrades are complete. Smith Street was moved about a block north of its original location to give the college much-needed contiguous expansion room for new athletic and residential facilities.
