Welcome to Randolph College!

Carl Girelli

Carl Girelli, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the College

We are delighted you will be part of our vibrant and close-knit campus community and look forward to discovering the unique talents and gifts you will add to our shared academic enterprise. I hope as you read through the New Student Information website you will begin to imagine yourself as a student here and to identify your place in our distinctive community of scholars.

We’ve collected on this website a wealth of information to help you navigate your first semester as a Randolph student. There are sections devoted to campus housing and dining, local services, computing, social life, and most importantly, our academic program. The site also contains a Required Actions page that includes important dates and lists every step you need to take to enroll. It’s important to review this information and to share the information with your families, who may have questions.

We are a community of scholars that sets high standards for academic achievement, embraces diversity in all its forms, and insists on personal integrity both in the classroom and in the campus social environment. Our faculty and staff are sincerely interested in you and your success at the College and are dedicated to providing the guidance and support you need to meet your personal and academic goals. The size and residential nature of our institution ensure you will develop friendships with your classmates which will last a lifetime. You will have access to an astonishing array of alumnae/alumni around the globe who are distinguishing themselves in every field imaginable. This affords you the opportunity to network with a Randolph College graduate in your area of interest for internships, graduate school advice, and professional employment. You will be encouraged to think and act both locally and globally—to study new places, to travel abroad, and to be inspired by classmates from around the world.

The integrity of our thoughts, words, and actions is guaranteed by our collective belief in and adherence to the Randolph College Honor Code. The honor pledge states:

I pledge absolute honesty in my academic work and all personal relationships at Randolph College. I will maintain the integrity of my word, and I will respect the rights of others. Realizing that these standards are an integral part of life at Randolph College, I assume my obligation to uphold this honor pledge. If at any time I fail to live up to my obligation to this pledge, I will report myself to the Chair of the Judiciary Committee. I will also ask others to report themselves for any infractions of this pledge.

Look for a letter this summer outlining more fully our Honor Code and honor system from the Chair of your Judiciary Committee.

It’s our distinct pleasure to welcome you to Randolph College and to share with you one of the most valuable experiences of your life! I look forward to meeting you and to beginning our journey together.
