Randolph College

Lynchburg, VA
Randolph College is a Private, nationally recognized, liberal arts college in Lynchburg, Virginia, focused on providing students an excellent educational foundation that will prepare them for life after college. Randolph specializes in and is committed to providing a unique, individualized experience that supports, challenges, and inspires students to develop their best self. It is our mission, and our business, to prepare students to engage the world critically and creatively, live and work honorably, and experience life abundantly. With a nationally recognized faculty, small classes, growing athletic program, and TAKE2, its innovative new curricular model, Randolph College is uniquely prepared to meet the needs of today's students at an affordable price that is comparable to many state schools. With TAKE2, our students take two courses per half-mester, allowing plenty of time focus in and dig deep into coursework, while still having time a full college experience. The new curricular model, which features no classes on Wednesdays, provides the time and balance students need to get the most out of their time in college, while still graduating in four years. We are dedicated to helping students identify their greatest talents, explore their interests, develop their particular gifts, and live up to the highest standards of personal honor. We believe there are no boundaries on what our students can do, who they can be, or what they can achieve. The possibilities and power lie in their capable hands. And Randolph College will be there to support them every step of the way.
