Virginia Private College Week — Meet your tour guides

The Gold Key Guides at Randolph College invite you to join them for a campus tour during Virginia Private College week. The special event is just around the corner, and it’s your opportunity to get to know great colleges in Virginia while saving money on your college applications.
From July 30 –August 4, Randolph and 24 other members of the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV) will open their doors for daily tours. Prospective students who visit at least three of the participating colleges during the week can then apply to three CICV colleges without an application fee.
