Welcome from President Lindgren


I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about the exceptional value of a Randolph-Macon education and how it can prepare you for an ever-changing world. 

We have one main goal at Randolph-Macon: to develop the minds and character of our students. We do this by creating education “on a human scale” with small classes, close relationships with our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, and a commitment to combine a broad-based liberal arts education with intentional career preparation that will prepare you for a successful future.

Throughout your four years, you will reap the benefits of The Edge, our comprehensive career preparation program that will give you the tools to be successful in securing employment or gaining entrance to graduate or professional school.

You will also have the opportunity to connect to other cultures through our study abroad programs and to the real world through our extensive internship opportunities. You may also experience moments of discovery through our nationally recognized undergraduate research program.

I would like to personally invite you to visit our beautiful campus. Sit in a classroom, take a tour, and talk to students and faculty. Meet with our terrific staff and learn about our scholarship and financial aid programs and how affordable a Randolph-Macon education actually is. Our location is ideal, near our state capital and in Washington D.C.’s “backyard,” and we are convenient from just about anywhere.

After you learn more, you will understand why we are nationally recognized as one of the top liberal arts colleges in the country.

So explore and enjoy.
