One of the hallmarks of a Randolph College education is the ability to participate in real world research and creative work. Students conduct their own experiments, pen original novels, curate art exhibitions, and work closely with faculty on research projects of all kinds. These experiences prepare students for the kind of research and problem-solving that takes place in graduate school and in employment.
Randolph College celebrates student ingenuity and creativity through such innovative initiatives as the Summer Research Program, the Symposium of Artists and Scholars, and the RISE Award, which grants funding to every student for the project of their choice. These programs are administered by the Center for Student Research.
We welcome students to participate in research as early as possible. Prospective students can complete the research interest form for future students to express their research interests and learn more about opportunities at Randolph.
