Randolph Magazine Volume 3 Number 2 September 2010This is Randolph: Meet the Class of 2014
Randolph College is a community filled with originals: women and men who are not afraid to be who they are—or to admit they are still figuring it out. Behind the Red Brick Wall, these individuals merge into a family, one in which academics, honesty, and tradition are top priorities and intelligence is assumed. A shared desire to make a difference in the world is a hallmark that has not changed in more than 119 years. This fall, Randolph welcomed the Class of 2014—another class of unique thinkers. Here are a few of their stories.
