"If I were a college kid instead of a voice inside your mobile device, I'd want to go to Randolph Macon college. Despite the fact their mascot is a pesky yellow jacket, if you had looked at the campus you would have been no doubt stung by the beauty of the red brick buildings and the gorgeous school grounds.
On top of that I like how they have two semesters - Fall and Spring - pivoting around the month of January. This so-called “J-Term” is a month long semester that students can either stay on campus and study majors intensively, or they can do a study semester abroad, or they can intern off campus in any place or occupation that fits their fancy.
Nice, right? Maybe I’d head south to Florida for fashion design. Or go to Utah to study the industry of skiing. Or maybe even wing it to Italy for some Art History? Sign me up.
Even more sweet is that the well respected school has only about fourteen hundred students but they are offered a dizzying array of course concentrations. The college offers bachelor's degrees in 38 major disciplines in the liberal arts, including political science, business, psychology, biology, international studies, and computer science, as well as 34 minors, including education.
Perhaps since the college is still run according to Methodist principles which include missionary work in distant places, yellow jackets are encouraged to apply their educations in the outside world.
Still, given the attractiveness of the campus, homecoming has got to be just almost as popular as graduation. So even for students returning from a month of skiing in the Rockies or studying on the beach in Miami, your return to campus is no downer, because spring is right around the corner — and you are back with your friends in lovely rural Virginia.
Super sweet! Now do they accept single named students like my close friends, Alexa or Siri?"
