Randolph College has once again been recognized by the Fiske Guide to Colleges as one of the nation’s “best and most interesting institutions.”
The 2024 edition of the guide praised Randolph for offering students a place to be themselves while receiving a strong liberal arts education.
Editors singled out TAKE2 as a “unique and creative new curriculum” that allows for more in-depth immersion in coursework, as well as more free time to pursue other educational opportunities and interests.
Randolph’s unique offerings—the American Culture Program, $2,000 RISE grants, the Summer Research Program, and Honor Code—were among the reasons why Fiske recognized the College again this year, in addition to its rigorous academic programs, close community, picturesque campus, and rich traditions.
Editors noted how Randolph’s general education requirements cover traditional liberal arts subjects such as artistic expression, human experience, culture and identity, social and natural science, and writing.
Compiled by former New York Times education editor Edward B. Fiske, one of the top independent voices in college admissions, Fiske Guide to Colleges provides an insider’s look at what it’s really like to be a student at the the top institutions in the United States, Canada, and the U.K.
“Randolph College has preserved the best elements of its past while evolving into an institution that remains relevant today,” the editors wrote, concluding that the College is “working hard to live up to its motto Vita abundantior (the life more abundant).”Tags: Academics, campus life, fiske guide, Fiske Guide to Colleges, national rankings, national recognitions, rankings
