The Office of Residence Life and Housing encourages our students to seek out information
to become more engaged participants in our community. This page provides our students
(and their families) with some general information on resources regarding various
topics that are important to living in a residential facility.
Education is more than a means to an end and includes more than formal instruction
in the classroom. Informal educational opportunities, including companionship with
others and an involvement of democratic living are essential aspects of the total
We at Randolph-Macon College consider the residence halls to be an important setting
for this informal education. These student facilities are places for teaching responsible
citizenship and for developing personal and social values. The staff is committed
to assisting students in fulfilling their diverse social needs and to devoting particular
attention to the needs of minority students. In the process of student development,
responsibility and accountability are promoted.
The staff strives to ensure their obligations to students and the College are met
and that accepting priorities are honored by prudent use of resources and sound
administrative decision making. Included as part of the decision making is the commitment
to seek input from student leaders and to provide students with viable, uncomplicated
guidelines, procedures, and policies for the operation of residential facilities.
Topics included in the Resources Section are:
General Assistance on Campus
