Randolph Complex Welcome Message

This message goes out to all new and returning students, parents, family and friends. I want to personally welcome you to Randolph/Green & Gold Village and to the College of William and Mary. My name is Terry Fassanella and I am the Area Director for the James Rowe area as well as the provisional Area Director for the Randolph Complex and Green & Gold Village. You may ask yourself, what is an Area Director? I am a full-time employee of the College with a Masters Degree in College Student Personnel. Overall, I am responsible for the day to day management and activities that occur in James Rowe as well as the Randolph/Green & Gold Village area. As a full time residence life professional, it is my responsibility to ensure that we offer support to our new and returning students.

Green & Gold Village has 3 residence halls which include Eagle Hall, Lion Hall, and Griffin Hall. There are 12 Resident Assistants and one Hall Director in Green & Gold Village.

The Randolph Complex consists of 7 residence halls which include Giles Hall, Preston Hall, Pleasants Hall, Page Hall, Harrison Hall and Cabell and Nicholas Apartments as well as Tazewell Hall which is the lounge area for the complex. The Randolph Complex is one of the most diverse areas on campus serving host to nine special interest houses (Africana, Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Hispanic). There are 13 Resident Assistants in Randolph. One RA resides on each floor of the special interest houses and one per apartment complex and Page and Harrison. The Head Resident for Randolph, is a student and lives in Tazewell Hall.

Randolph/Green & Gold Village has a great staff and we look forward to meeting all of you in the Fall. We also encourage you to take an active role in your community and participate in Hall Council.

Please review this website for detailed information and also please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Message from the Randolph Staff!

Welcome to the Randolph Complex!

We have 13 incredible RA’s, 1 Head Resident and Area Director excited to meet you in the fall and we are looking forward to working with you to make this a great year for all of us.

In choosing Randolph, you have chosen to be part of one of the most diverse living communities our College has to offer. Aside from having apartment style living and single rooms, the complex offers a wide variety of living-learning communities. We have the Italian, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, German, Hispanic and French Houses as well as the Africana House. These special interest houses give you wonderful opportunities to be immersed in different cultures as well as different languages. Each language house has a native speaking tutor living in the house. This tutor facilitates involvement in the language by organizing movie nights, cooking classes, conversation hours and other wonderful activities. The living-learning communities are incredibly inviting and look forward to working with the other language houses to add to the cultural experience of living in Randolph.

Location, Location, Location! Yet another great thing about living in Randolph is its proximity to just about everything. The Caf is located right across the street from the Complex and you will also be a 5 minute walk from the Rec, Swem, and the rest of New Campus. Besides this, there is a great grilling area in the middle of the complex. You can make use of this grill at any time throughout the year for grilling, s’mores, or other fun events. Tazewell, centrally located, houses study lounges, laundry facilities, and the duty office. The Duty Office is open every night and has multiple items such as DVDs, board games, and cleaning supplies that you can check out when the office is open if you pay Hall Dues. Most importantly, the Duty Office has spare keys that you can check out if you misplace yours.

Paying your Hall Dues is extremely important, because it will help both your RA and Hall Council put on programs and events for you and your community. Speaking of, being involved in Hall Council offers you a great leadership opportunity. By being a part of Hall Council you will have a say in the way we allocate funds, which items we buy for the complex, and which events and activities we put on for everyone to enjoy.

Your Resident Assistants are an incredibly diverse and wonderful group of people who are looking forward to meeting you. Every single RA is extremely excited to help you create the community you and your peers wish to live in. The RA will also serve as resource for you as well as being a liaison between you and Residence Life. Take time to get to know the RAs, they are truly a wonderful group of people.

In short, you have chosen a wonderful place to live this year. We are all looking forward to meeting you and creating a strong Randolph Community. Part of creating this community is Self-Determination. So, be sure to check out the Self Determination video for a reminder of what Self-Determination means for you as a member of the Randolph Complex community, http://tinyurl.com/communitynorms.
