Randolph College prepares students to engage the world critically and creatively, live and work honorably, and experience life abundantly. Our challenging liberal arts curriculum speaks to a special kind of student. Someone excited about designing their own, one-of-a-kind major. Someone who’s ready for a life-changing study abroad experience in Mexico or India. Someone prepared to work side-by-side with a professor doing graduate level research, even as a sophomore. At Randolph, we’re a tight-knit, active community of friends and colleagues.
