Profiles in Politics

The Political Tradition Continues at R-MC

From student groups that voice their opinions to classes that explore American government and international relations, politics has been a constant presence at Randolph-Macon College since our founding in Boydton, Virginia.

Today, our campus is still engaged in teaching and encouraging students to make the most of our ever-changing political climate.

Our special series, Profiles in Politics, features some of the Randolph-Macon College alumni who have used their liberal arts education to launch careers that include politics, government and social concerns.
