Randolph College

Randolph College builds on a long history of academic excellence, intellectual inquiry and artistic expression, fostered by close student/faculty relationships, a spirit of exploration and collaboration, and exposure to a rich diversity of people and ideas. Since its founding as Randolph-Macon Womans College in 1891, the College empowers its graduates to live and foster a spirit of Vita Abundantior -- "A Life More Abundant". A Randolph College education emphasizes the value of personal challenge, global perspective, and applied experience, as defined by:- A challenging academic environment, within which each student can contribute to the intellectual life of the community and confront important questions by working closely with faculty members to take responsibility for her or his own learning, bring fresh perspectives to the classroom, undertake original research, or engage in artistic creation in a capstone experience.- An emphasis on intercultural competence, developed through the Colleges Bridges Not Walls initiative that enhances each individuals understanding of not only his or her own culture, but other cultures as well. Students have rich opportunities on campus, within the U.S., and in study abroad to experience, interact with, and learn from diverse cultures; and leave college prepared to apply those skills for professional and personal enrichment.- An experiential learning environment, within which each student can collaborate with faculty, other students, local organizations and businesses, and companies and organizations worldwide to conduct original research, explore personal interests, lead in competition and in organizations, develop leadership, volunteer in the community, and learn through hands-on, significant experience. These core characteristics stimulate students to pursue and achieve goals that have personal meaning in an atmosphere of integrity and mutual trust. The Colleges Honor System has long been a key element of the Colleges culture and shapes daily life on campus.Randolph College seeks students who are excited about engaging in the educational process in its many dimensions: academic, co-curricular, and social. The College welcomes individuals who value originality, independent thought, new ideas, and the exploration of issues that fascinate them.
