ChicagoFine Arts Trip for all Freshmen studentsIt is hard to choose just one, but I think the Chicago trip was definitely a highlight of my time at Randolph because it served as a unifying trip for the whole class. In all honesty, as a freshmen you are only thinking about having fun on a trip like that, and the Chicago experience did not disappoint in the fun category. It was so great that I came back as a senior to help the freshmen have an equally thrilling experience. Recent Alumni Survey Result: What was your most meaningful interim experience?

Closing CommentsMore Alumni CommentsInterim is a time at Randolph when students and teachers come together and bond over something that is not directly classroom related. While interim needs to remain a learning experience, it allows for students and teachers who might not normally spend time together to forge new relationships.They were some of the best experiences that I had that were completely unique to Randolph School41I really regret my lack of interest in the career exploration options, surely it would have been very helpful.I liked that the school gave you time for courses outside of the normal academic classes. It gave the teachers a chance to share their other talents and it gave a dedicated time period for class trips. I always thought interim was a great idea. 42
