About R-MC

Randolph-Macon is a private, coeducational liberal arts and sciences college located 15 minutes north of Richmond in the scenic town of Ashland, Virginia.

R-MC enrolls over 1,400 undergraduate students, who pursue their academic paths in 54 areas of study (including majors, minors, pre-professional programs and other areas). 

Randolph-Macon has a longstanding reputation for giving our students an “edge.”  R-MC integrates an outstanding liberal arts education and success strategies taught by extraordinary faculty mentors with a four year career preparation program called The Edge. Dedicated staff in The Edge Career Center, in concert with our faculty, work with students to develop a personalized Career Roadmap that provides them with a competitive advantage with their careers and when applying to graduate school.

Using resources at The Edge Career Center, R-MC students:

  • Network with alumni and business partners
  • Gain internship and other experience that contributes to their success
  • Participate in self-assessments
  • Build career skills

As a result of this systematic support, and because our exceptional faculty  are committed to each student, the college offers a Four-Year Degree Guarantee.
