Ben Randolph ’15 Makes the Most of Faculty Accessibility

When Ben Randolph ’15 was choosing a college, Dartmouth emerged as a favorite, he says, because of its “excellent study abroad program in Spain, its small size, and the opportunity to work closely with professors.”

What he didn’t anticipate was just how extensive these faculty research opportunities would be. Randolph is now in the midst of his third faculty research project, helping Associate Professor of Spanish Antonio Gómez develop a new comparative literature class.

Since the summer after his first year at Dartmouth, Randolph has helped Department of Spanish and Portuguese Professor Pedro Palou (now at Tufts University) research his book about Mexican biopolitics in the 20th and 21st centuries and worked with Spanish and Portuguese Professor Raúl Bueno Chávez on researching transculturation in Latin America, a project Randolph is still working on.
