As a former student of the Newly Co-ed Randolph College I feel there are many things that go unsaid during the Visitation and application process.

The college does have a long standing history as RMWC, but that is were it stops. It may look the same but it a completely different school now.

How do I mean? During a pre-season ncaa meeting, my first days of first year, the athletic department head told us that they had done a random drug testing an earlier year and the results had been horrible. No repercussions came from this. This is a long running problem with the college.

Why is it such a problem? Plain and simple, there are 600 kids on campus, when 75% or more of the student population drinks or does drugs that only leaves a very small number who don't. I had a friend who transferred from Randolph to U. So. Florida one of the countries top party schools, and Ill never forget her saying.

Florida is fun, but they don't party as hard as Randy-Mac.

An ambulance at the college to rush someone to the hospital is commonplace it seems these days. With the introduction of men into the college the number of incidents involving Rape and assault are also beginning to rise, devastating to individuals in such a small community where you cant drop a dime without the college knowing about it.

The college still has a few redeeming qualities. The colleges "be an original" campaign ultimately failed. The don't want original, they want you to be just like every other college kid, but occasionally they actually do get original people, and they make the college an amazing place.

A handful of the teachers are top-tier, mostly the ones that stayed after the co-ed switch. Degree programs have become much easier with the addition of less than qualified males to the college. Sports is the main entertainment, besides the Macon Activities Council. For a D3 school the importance of the sports programs is a little absurd, esp when most of them are quite awful to be honest.

Randolph college is perfect for Intelligent Girls who can speak their mind and can keep jerks at bay.

It's also perfect for Less than qualified males who want to be treated like a god for participating in a sport.

If you actually are an Original, I hope you find the teachers who really will care about your future, and the friends that will love you for you. Try and avoid the drugs and the assholes, keep your head down, and the college will be a great place for you, other than that, just about anywhere else would be better.
