Randolph College's properties encompass several hundred acres. The college's commitment to the conservation of green spaces has been strong throughout its history and remains anchored in the long- term vision of the institution.
Most of the college campus has been built in a compact manner to promote walking, socializing, and the preservation of the largest possible unbroken wildlife habitat area. In addition, Randolph College has received three pieces of land that are protected in perpetuity from development. These three nature preserves as well as the forest located on the back of Randolph's campus serve as outdoor laboratories for academic research by faculty and students. Ron Gettinger, professor of biology, and Dr. Shedd, William E. Thoresen Professor of Biology, are two faculty members who would gladly give you more information about these precious holdings.
