World Class ArtThe Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College is home to the college's world class collection of American art. Students regularly visit and study in Maier, and some even curate their own exhibitions from the collection. Randolph hosts the oldest annual exhibition of contemporary art by any college in the country. Notable artists regularly visit to meet with students.
ConvocationThe convocation ceremony marks the official start of the new academic year. At Randolph, all students, faculty and staff attend to view the procession of the senior class followed by the faculty in full academic regalia. After remarks from the president and student government president, faculty awards are presented for distinguished teaching and scholarship, and new faculty are introduced.
Senior RobesThe Convocation ceremony officially opens the College for the academic year. Though it is a formal occasion, Randolph students find ways to make it festive. Seniors process into the room wearing funny hats and their senior robes decorated with buttons reflecting their experiences of the past four years. Their sister class, the sophomores, wear white.
Class BannersAt Opening Convocation, seniors process behind their class banner. Following the Even/Odd class rivalry tradition, banners are colored according to class year - black for Evens (2016 and 2018), yellow for Odds (2017 and 2019). Displayed at various events throughout the year, banners are "retired" when the class graduates and put on permanent display in Main Hall.
Move-In DayWhen the Class of 2019 arrives Wednesday morning for orientation, they will be greeted by a host of volunteers who will help move them in to their residence hall. The president, deans, faculty, administrators, student leaders, athletes, residence life, and staff will be on hand to greet families, answer questions, and, of course, do the heavy lifting. It's the Randolph community's way of saying "Welcome home!"
