Brock Commons, R-MC’s new student center
Barclay and Rob DuPriest '69
Brown Campus Center
Great things are happening on campus.
The lot has been cleared for the new
Brock Commons, R-MC’s new student center. The facility will include a movie
theater, an expanded campus bookstore, dining services with an open café, a balcony,
a portico with tables, a student mailroom, and multi-purpose rooms and meeting spaces.
Construction of the new student center is made possible through a $5 million lead
gift from Joan and Macon F. Brock Jr. ’64. Brock Commons is scheduled for completion
in Spring 2013.
Friends of Barclay & Rob
The Friends of Barclay & Rob
fund was established to help with the cost of this extraordinary new student center.
Barclay and Rob DuPriest ’69 have made a positive impact on campus for generations.
Barclay has been a fixture in the bookstore, serving as manager since 1986, while
her husband, Rob is a dedicated alumnus. Alumni and friends are invited to demonstrate
their appreciation by giving to the Friends of Barclay & Rob fund. All gifts
to this fund will be split 25-percent to the Randolph-Macon Fund and 75-percent
to construction funds for the new
Brock Commons Student Center.

Own a Piece of the Brown Campus Center
Demolition of the Brown Campus Center marked the end of an era at Randolph-Macon.
Many students, alumni and friends recall fond memories inside the old campus center.
Now you can own a piece of the Brown Campus Center by buying one of its bricks.
Randolph-Macon’s Habitat for Humanity chapter is selling bricks from the demolition
for $15 (if purchased before May 26) or $20 if purchased after that date. Shipping
costs also apply if the bricks are mailed.
There are a limited number of bricks available so everyone is encouraged to order
early. To purchase your piece of the Brown Campus Center, contact Kari Patrick at
The proceeds from the brick sale will benefit the 2013 R-MC Habitat for Humanity
Alternative Spring Break trip. In March 2012, twenty-eight students traveled to
Albany, Georgia to help build houses for Veterans and their families. The annual
trip is planned, organized and financed by students, who pledge to work at least
20 fundraising hours to help finance the trip.
