U.S. News & World Report names Randolph College one of the nation?s Top Liberal Arts Colleges
Randolph College is a private, nationally recognized, liberal arts college specializing in helping students identify their greatest talents, explore their interests, develop their particular gifts, and live up to the highest standards of personal honor.
Randolph specializes in?and is committed to?providing a unique, individualized experience that supports, challenges, and inspires students to develop their best self. Through small class sizes, personal relationships with faculty, and rigorous coursework, Randolph encourages its students to master the thought of thinking originally, critically, imaginatively, ingeniously, and inventively. Randolph students are actively engaged in their education, with dynamic classroom discussions, integrative internship programs, and real-world experiences. In fact, 60 percent of Randolph students complete internships before graduating?compared to 40 percent of peers nationwide. Other programs, such as the Randolph Innovative Student Experience grant program, give students the resources they need to explore those interests. Summer Research, visiting artists and writers programs, an on-campus museum, and unique partnerships, like that between Randolph and the National Gallery, London, help provide a plethora of opportunities for students to stretch themselves, discover new interests, and pursue career options.
A growing Division III athletics program features 18 varsity-level teams that compete in the competitive Old Dominion Athletic Conference. Randolph recently opened its newly renovated athletic center. Other facilities include practice fields, a softball complex, newly renovated tennis courts, and WildCat Stadium. Randolph is dedicated to helping its students identify their greatest talents, explore their interests, develop their particular gifts, and live up to the highest standards of personal honor. There are no boundaries on what students can do, who they can be, or what they can achieve. The possibilities and power lie in their capable hands. And Randolph College will be there to support them every step of the way.
The College?s rich academic program offers students a choice of 30 majors and 43 minors. The College also offers popular pre-professional programs in engineering, law, medicine, and veterinary studies. The teacher licensure program is enhanced by two graduate degree programs in education, and a Master of Fine Arts in creative writing serves as one of the first low-residency programs in the state.
Beginning fall 2021, Randolph will launch an innovative new curriculum model that is a better design for the way students learn and live?both in today?s world and tomorrow?s. The central idea of TAKE2 is built into its name: Beginning in fall 2021, Randolph students will take two classes at a time for seven-week sessions, instead of four or more courses per semester. No classes will be held on Wednesdays in order to allow for extracurricular activities, community engagement, a cognitive break to study and prepare for classes, field trips, and internships.
We believe that by allowing students to focus on two classes at a time, rather than spreading their attention across four or more courses, TAKE2 will improve learning and offer greater opportunities inside and outside the classroom.
TAKE2 will: ? foster a more intensive academic experience and enable faculty and students to dive more deeply into course material. ? provide faculty with more time for academic support to help students conquer particularly difficult concepts or explore newly discovered passions. ? allow students to take greater advantage of the many resume-building extracurricular opportunities that Randolph offers, including dance and theatre performances, internships, research projects, jobs, community service, clubs, athletics, and more.
This revolutionary approach to learning will not only set Randolph apart from other liberal arts colleges, it will create a distinctive college experience designed to better meet the needs of 21st-century students.
Randolph?s emphasis on a student-centered curriculum is also found in its programming. The Randolph College Maier Museum of Art offers students the opportunity to not only experience amazing works of art, but to gain hands-on experience creating exhibits through our unique museum and heritage studies major. The College?s Center for Student Research also facilitates opportunities for students to participate in original and innovative research and scholarship. Randolph?s competitive and funded Summer Research Program allows students to spend eight intensive weeks collaborating with faculty members. The program includes all disciplines across campus and offers students opportunities to present findings at professional conferences and/or to publish results in professional journals. The Center for Ancient Drama provides the unique student experience associated with the production of the Greek Play and the internationally-recognized scholarly journal Didaskalia. In addition to an established and well-respected student-run Honor System that permeates all aspects of campus life, Randolph College is home to 18 academic honor societies, including one of the oldest chapters of Phi Beta Kappa in the nation and only the fifth charter granted in the state of Virginia.
Randolph?s graduates enter the workforce or graduate school prepared to succeed. Alumnae and alumni have forged successful careers in a variety of fields including law, medicine, journalism, education, engineering, and science, and the College ranks in the top 15 percent of all colleges and universities nationwide for the percentage of graduates who go on to earn Ph.Ds. Randolph?s graduates are accepted into top graduate and professional programs. Examples include Stanford, Cornell, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, Oxford University (UK), Medical University of South Carolina, and law programs at Boston University and George Washington University.
Located in the heart of Virginia, Randolph?s picturesque 100-acre campus in an historic, residential area of Lynchburg features the best of traditional brick buildings and pathways and exciting new facilities such as WildCat Stadium and the newly renovated athletics center. One of the more unique aspects of campus is the Mabel K. Whiteside Greek Theatre. Situated in ?The Dell,? the Greek theatre was built to offer classics students the opportunity to produce ancient drama in a realistic setting modeled after the theatres of ancient Greece. In addition to these productions, The Dell is the setting for numerous events throughout the year including Commencement. Randolph?s location in the growing city of Lynchburg provides close access to shopping, entertainment, and recreational and cultural opportunities. The College is within easy driving distance of major cities including Washington, D.C., Richmond, and Virginia Beach and easy access is available to public transportation, including an Amtrak station and a regional airport.
