Guilford is a really great place with wonderfully lovely people and a great, open and accepting atmosphere. The professors are great and the campus is beautiful.
Guilford College is the type of school who will embrace you and your passions no matter what those are. It has a small campus, but you will rarely feel bored. The Guilford "bubble" has a lot to offer during the every single day of the week. The Campus Activities Board is always working to make the school more fun and to help students cope with stress and homesickness. Every spring semester, the spring festival called "Serendipity" is a big part of the school's tradition which is also very attached to quaker values. The liberal arts education is also a huge part of why I love this school so much and the professors are willing to help you achieve your goals whether they are around campus, Greensboro or the world. Guilford also has a great sense of social justice that has helped me understand different groups and people from other backgrounds and life experiences. I would recommend it to anyone who is open minded and would love to learn more about themselves and our society.
Guilford College, although very far from home, helped me feel at home my first year. I feel the professors did a very good job of helping with the transition from high school to college as well as my baseball coaches. Everyone is very helpful and committed to helping figure out how you can succeed.

I enjoy the diversity and welcoming atmosphere at Guilford College. As a CCE student, I was worried I would feel out of place because I am ten years older than the traditional students. No one has ever made me feel out of place due to age or any other factor at Guilford. The environment is geared toward the success of every student. I love being on campus.
When I first got here at Guilford College I knew that I was in the right place. I love being here at Guilford!
I would like to see us as a school have cheerleaders and a band.
I attended Guilco in the nineties. I do not feel this college is for everyone. I did grow as a human being. In terms of academics, my experience bordered on the mediocre. I was an English major and some of the profs indulged in pet theories, or in arrogant teaching styles. Lee Johnson was the most solid teacher I had, as was Jeff Jeske. Dick Morton was a great man but what he talked about is anyone's guess. The former were concerned that you learned something and were proper teachers. Some of the profs unfortunately displayed the kind of academic arrogance that serves no one. Some of the profs were cool, kind, and down to earth. Guilco was the kind of overheated petri dish in which cliques magnify issues. A political environment. The ones best prepared for the real world became teachers or did the sports medicine program. In terms of English majors, unless you are going on to graduate school, I think the investment is poor. Guilco did teach me to think and write critically.
Guilford College is a great community to be a part of. It is a safe-haven campus which means they protect students that are immigrants etc and they also have equally respect for all genders. The educational curriculum is overwhelming sometimes but you learn useful things.
I like the small college atmosphere. The class sizes are perfect for participation and learning, and the teachers I've had are good.
Guilford College is not a school to go to if you want to find people like you. There is either athletes or people that smoke a lot.
The professors were nice and helpful. Everyone is friendly. You are expected to do your best and there is always someone to help you.

I'm an adult student and really don't pay much attention to athletics. There seems to be a lot of school spirit for a D3 school and the teams are well supported by the campus community, parents and friends.
I'm an adult student so I cannot comment on dorm conditions or anything like that. My experience with professors has been great! That's the key to success at Guilford and lots of other schools. Talk to advisors and other students to get a feel for various professors in whatever your major is, then take classes with the ones you feel you'll mesh well with. I would definitely choose this school again if I had it to do all over again. Class sizes are really small and we call professors by first names. Quakers are very unassuming people and don't go in much for flashiness or titles. I've learned so much in my time here and I can clearly see the difference in myself image and my entire thinking process since starting my college career here. They stress critical thinking and boy, do I think critically all the time now. This is a writing intensive school so if you don't like to write, or don't want to learn to write, you probably should go somewhere else!
Academics are ok. There's a lot of variety in what courses you can take to complete your major requirements, however, the school does have a lot of weird Gen Ed requirements that really don't help you at all.
