R-MC Mission Statement: A Randolph-Macon College liberal arts education develops the mind and character of each student.

The Brock Sports and Recreation Center at Randolph-Macon College is an integral facet of the total campus experience.

Our mission is to provide quality space in an attractive environment for a multitude of activities such as unstructured drop-in recreation, competitive intramural and recreational play, instructional programs, and recreational and sports activities for the entire campus community.

Our objective is to develop programs that contribute to the fulfillment of the educational mission of Randolph-Macon College. This goal is accomplished by encouraging participation in a wide variety of recreational, fitness, and intramural sports activities. The programs are administered by professional and student staff committed to the values of customer service and the challenge of meeting the needs of the campus community.
