Randolph College’s professors have once again been recognized as some of the best in the nation.
The Princeton Review ranked the College 16th for most accessible professors in the 2021 edition of its college guide, The Best 386 Colleges—up two spots from its 18th ranking last year.
Randolph has been ranked in the top 20 for four consecutive years.
One student interviewed for the survey touted the enthusiasm of Randolph’s professors.
“Their passion for the subject matter and course content is infectious. I look forward to each class each day and feel confident in my education. Learning is interesting and fun here, and professors are eager to answer questions and provide resources to supplement lectures and experiments.”
The student noted that some professors provide home phone numbers so they can be reached outside of office hours, and that all are easy to communicate with.
The guide also praised Randolph students for their intelligence, outspokenness, and commitment to excellence, adding that campus traditions “help form a very strong sense of community.”
The Princeton Review has published the guide since 1992, and only about 14 percent of America’s four-year colleges are included. Instead of ranking the colleges in the book from 1 to 386, it reports 62 ranking lists of top 20 schools in various categories important to prospective students and their parents.
Rankings are based on the company’s surveys of 143,0000 students at the schools featured in the book.
The survey poses more than 80 multiple-choice questions to students about themselves and their fellow students, as well as their school’s academics, administration, and campus life. There also are several open-ended comment areas where students can share what they think of their schools in their own words.
