At Randolph, caring about the environment was a priority long before it became the popular thing to do. Beginning in the 1990s, the College joined a group of other higher education institutions in making an official commitment to environmental sustainability.
Today, Randolph is ranked 46th in the nation for Top Green Colleges by The Princeton Review. Sustainability is a way of life at Randolph. Students can learn and teach sustainable agricultural practices in the Organic Garden, make their own laundry detergent, and engage in campus-wide recycling efforts.
The Sustainability Council leads efforts to encourage the emphasis on sustainability in all aspects of campus, from the dining hall to technology. Renovations and improvements on campus keep energy efficiency at the forefront, and alumnae and alumni frequently return to campus to share how their educational experiences at Randolph have helped them succeed in the environmental science field.
Randolph’s community of students, faculty, and staff care about their environment. Here, sustainability is not a fad. It is a way of life. Be an Original. Be ECOcentric.
