There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the sustainability movement here at Randolph College and in Lynchburg.

Environmental Club

Help promote environmental awareness! The Environmental Club works to educate the community on sustainable practices, hosting environmental activities and events.

Organic Garden

Want to grow your own food or take care of farm animals? Volunteer at the Organic Garden, a National Wildlife Federation certified wildlife habitat. This student-created garden features community plots, chickens, honeybees, an edible perennials food forest, and a native fruit tree orchard. Randolph also offers an organic gardening physical education class.

Rummage Room

Every spring, when Randolph students move out of the residence halls, they donate their unwanted furniture, appliances, books, school supplies, posters, kitchenware, and other “stuff” to the Rummage Room.  Faculty and staff are also invited to donate items.   At various times throughout the year, the Environmental Club opens the doors of the Rummage Room to current students to “shop” for free.

Internships

Want to address a community sustainability issue and earn course credit? Design your own internship! Past student interns conducted a campus greenhouse gas inventory, brought reusable to-go containers to the dining hall, and worked for the City of Lynchburg, to name a few. Stop by the Career Development Office, ask your professors, or contact Sara Woodward, sustainability coordinator, swoodward@randolphcollege.edu.
