Hanover’s Perspective

Randolph-Macon College “In a Building Boom”

In 2009, the Randolph-Macon College Board of Trustees approved the 2009 – 2017 Strategic Plan with one of four focuses on facility improvement.   To finance improvements, in 2010 Randolph-Macon announced the “Building Extraordinary” campaign to raise $100 million.  To date, Randolph Macon has raised $87 million and has already embarked or completed a number of projects which include the construction of:

  • Day Field, new football stadium
  • Brock Commons, new student center
  • Andrews Hall, new freshman dormitory
  • Hughes Stephens Field at Estes Park, new baseball complex
  • The John B. Werner library pavilion
  • New tennis complex

Currently, Randolph-Macon College, a private, coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences located in the Town of Ashland in Hanover County, has a student enrollment over 1,200 undergraduates. “Hanover County is excited to see all these projects taking shape at Randolph-Macon,” says Edwin A. Gaskin, Director of Hanover County Economic Development.  He adds that “the growth of Randolph-Macon College contributes to a well-educated labor pool from which the business community can fuel their growth.”

With adoption of their current Strategic Plan and capital improvements they plan to reach enrollment of 1,500 students.
