At Randolph, we believe that a college education should be hands-on, intensive and inspirational.
We’ve worked hard to create unforgettable learning opportunities—in and out of class, on campus and around the world—that help our graduates become instant leaders and thoughtful global citizens.
Nearly half of Randolph students study abroad through special partnerships with universities in 11 different countries, including our flagship program Randolph College Abroad: The World in Britain based in Reading, England. We’re especially excited about our International Study Seminars —shorter, faculty-led expeditions to far-flung locales like Japan and Ecuador.
But you don’t have to leave the country to be exposed to diverse viewpoints and fresh ideas. Our American Culture Program takes Randolph students out of the classroom and on the road for eye-opening explorations of historically and culturally significant locations like post-Katrina New Orleans or the Biltmore House, America’s largest mansion.
Over two-thirds of our alumni attend graduate school within five years of graduation and get into medical school at a rate 29 percent higher than the national average. That’s because of innovative programs like the Summer Research Program, where undergrads work side-by-side with a faculty member doing independent research.
Randolph celebrates student achievement in all disciplines with the Symposium for Artists & Scholars – a two-day academic conference featuring oral presentations of student research, readings of creative work, musical performances, and exhibitions of student artwork.
Or the Davenport Leadership Program, a four-year, multi-phase training in ethical leadership and effective community outreach. But Randolph wouldn’t be Randolph without our time-honored traditions.
The Greek Play has been around for almost a century, and was revived in 2000 (in English, this time) for the latest generation of Randolph students. Every other fall, the entire campus and Lynchburg community converge on the Dell—a gorgeous outdoor theater made especially for the plays—to watch the latest production, complete with period costumes and classical chorus.
