Question
I transferred here to Randolph from a communityBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I transferred here to Randolph from a community college. I was extremely happy to find out that all but 4 of my credits transferred, and their transfer scholarships are fantastic! The professors here are AMAZING! They care so much about you, your education and your future. If you ever need help, they are there for you whenever possible and really do their best. The faculty and staff here are also amazing, especially in the financial aid office. If this is the school you want to attend, they will do anything possible to help you afford it. The small class sizes are a major plus, and the school is about 5 minutes from downtown, and 10 from Walmart, Target, etc. There's also a fantastic farmers market downtown which we love! There are chickens on campus which is awesome if you love being around animals, just get involved with the organic garden! We also have our own museum, great for curating opportunities and just being classy and going to show openings. There's a new cardio room in the renovated student center, which has the most beautiful view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Definitely a great school if you're in college for a fantastic education!

Question
I am so happy I attend Randolph.Quite BrightOther
I am so happy I attend Randolph. I originally decided to come here because it was the best option financially (the college gave me a great scholarship and a good financial aid package), but it's more than just that. The faculty here are absolutely fantastic - super helpful, approachable, caring, understanding, and supportive. The Environmental department (I am an Environmental Science major) in particular has great professors that are extremely invested in their students' future careers. Also the campus is really beautiful!
