Randolph College

Lynchburg, VA

Randolph College says, "the core idea behind a liberal education is that students should develop certain skills and be introduced to certain ideas that are not directly related to their career goals. Randolph College wants to balance the depth of a student's knowledge in his or her major with the breadth that comes from a more general education." [Source]
