    I love my school! It is very easy to get involved in multiple activities and to develop leadership skills on and off campus. The small campus curates a community feel, and the personal relationships you build with the professors and staff members are unique and meaningful. The location near downtown Greensboro allows for diverse and convenient internship and part-time job opportunities, but the individual attention you get in the classroom is the most special part of GC, and it is not found in most colleges.

    I Graduated from Greensboro College in 2017 and now currently work for my Alma Mater! My time as a student was great. I played a sport all 4 years, studied music and was a part of a bunch of different clubs/activities on campus. However, I wasn't incredibly motivated at times and fell into a bit of a repetitive pattern, which made some days on campus very boring. This really showcased the amazing location to the downtown area, which in my opinion is, unrivaled at any other school. I would not recommend this school to everyone, but If I had the choice to do it all over again, I would!
    Ever since I applied to Greensboro College, I have felt that I was part of a small, tight-knit family. Everyone is super friendly, from dining hall staff, to admin, to teachers. Classes are stimulating and challenging and I always say I wouldn't be happier anywhere else. There are plenty of ways to get involved on campus, from sports to clubs; you get out of your experience what you put into it. I love Greensboro College!
