LYNCHBURG – Randolph College will join 23 other private colleges from around the state in celebrating Virginia Private College Week July 29-Aug. 3.

The event provides rising high school juniors and seniors – and their families – with the opportunity to learn more about the vast array of educational offerings in the state. The week is sponsored by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).

During the week, Randolph College and the other participating colleges will offer tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid, and academic programs. Students who visit three participating colleges during this week will also receive three application fee waivers. These waivers can be used at any CICV college.

"Visiting campuses in person is one of the most important steps in the college search process," said Robert Lambeth, CICV president. "I encourage parents to explore which college will be the best fit for their son or daughter, and I want to reassure them that a quality education at a Virginia private college is affordable and within reach."

Randolph College will feature tour and information sessions at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday and at 9 a.m. on Saturday.
