2 The Randolph experience extends far beyond the classroom for students of all disciplines. The College’s focus is on providing students with the preparation and skills they need to be successful not just in a career or graduate school, but in life. Internships are an important way to give students the opportunity to gain both work and cultural experiences, as well as to get a taste of different career options. “We encourage students to engage in internships and volunteer work beginning in their first year so that they can become better acquainted with the place that they want to enter the world when they leave Randolph,” said Randolph’s President Bradley W. Bateman. Randolph students are above the national average in terms of internships, with 56 percent completing internships compared to just 40 percent nationwide. Whether they are selected for one of the coveted Randolph internship spots at the National Gallery, London, working for the i I N T E R N S H I P S Lyric Opera in Chicago, gaining important hands-on experience with Randolph’s Theatre-in- Residence, Endstation, or taking on one of the more than 2,000 other internship and research opportunities available through the College’s Career Development Center, Randolph students know they are adding to an extensive resumé of practical and academic experience that will serve them well later in life. Read on to learn about a few recent experiences of our students.
