Randolph College has been named a College of Distinction for the 2023-2024 academic year, an honor that recognizes the College’s high-quality education, hands-on learning, strong student-faculty relationships, and vibrant campus life.
Colleges of Distinction’s selection process differs from those of popular college rankings publications, whose formulas grade institutions based on things like faculty salaries, endowment size, and peer opinion.
Instead, it involves a sequence of in-depth research and detailed interviews with the schools, accepting only those that adhere to the Four Distinctions: Engaged Students, Great Teaching, Vibrant Community, and Successful Outcomes.
As a College of Distinction, Randolph has shown excellence in each of these areas, providing its students with a well-rounded, practical education that prepares them for successful careers and lives.
“Thanks to our unique TAKE2 curriculum model combined with our growing academic programs, affordable tuition, and nationally ranked faculty, Randolph College offers our students a one-of-a-kind education they can’t find anywhere else,” said Travis Carter, dean of admission and financial aid. “We are proud to be named a College of Distinction.”
The College also received special recognition for its business and education programs.
“We believe that engaged students are successful students,” said Tyson Schritter, chief operating officer at Colleges of Distinction. “And Randolph College’s dedication to experiential learning shows us that each of its students has the opportunity to play an active role in their education.”
Randolph’s inclusion is a testament to the way it caters to its own students’ potential and goals, helping them achieve success in unique ways that cannot be ranked against others.
“We don’t rank our schools,” said Schritter. “Every student has individual needs and flourishes in a specific environment. We prefer to focus on the innovative ways that colleges all around the country are providing an enriching undergraduate experience.”
