LYNCHBURG – Randolph College will welcome the largest class of new students in five years this year. New student enrollment is expected to top 210, marking a 30 percent increase over last year. Overall enrollment is expected to increase as well. About 35 percent of the student body is male.
“Randolph College has much to celebrate this year,” said John E. Klein, president. “This is a significant increase in enrollment and another piece of good news for the College. We have worked very hard over the past few years to increase our enrollment. We are now seeing major progress and that hard work pay off. We are proud of this college and the high quality educational experience we offer to our students.”
The increase comes as the College completes its transition to coeducation. The 2010-2011 academic year marks the first time all four classes of students at Randolph College are fully coeducational. Randolph College became coed in 2007 and changed its name from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College.
New students arrive Aug. 25 followed by returning students Aug. 28. Classes begin Aug. 30.
