    It is a very close community where everyone knows everyone else. It is a beautiful campus with something for everyone. The classes are small and they will prepare you for your future. You'll find everything that you need here! Greensboro College is very much a family and we'd love for more to come join us!

    What l like about this college is the classes are small and it helps me whenever I ask the professor for help and I can keep up with my work and it helps me stay focus. The campus is small and I live in dorms that they are closer to one of my classes. It helps me to classes on time, or other activities. Another reason why on campus is small is meeting a lot of people and become friends with them and I’ll get to know them more. When I walk around campus, I see the same people I know.
    I have only been there on a college visit but while I was there the college staff treated me and my mom very well. I was there on a visit with for the lacrosse team and i got time with the coach and time with the team. I got to watch a lacrosse game. We were fed, the coaches were awesome. The tour of the college was amazing I loved the campus, it was small, not allot of walking, the dorms were big the cafeteria had great food. I would be ecstatic to go to Greensboro College
