Guilford's orientation program is designed to introduce you to life at Guilford, answer any questions you might have about your transition to college and to bring up and take care of all of those questions you haven't even considered yet!

You will be introduced to the Guilford family, register for classes, get your ID photo taken, take placement tests and register for housing. During orientation, you will start your transition to academic and co-curricular life at Guilford College. Academic skills sessions, introductions to campus resources, advising and social events will serve to get you ready to begin the academic year and become involved in the Guilford community.

By participating in orientation, on your first day of class you should walk into your classroom with confidence as a part of the Guilford family: seeing familiar faces, comfortable in your interactions with faculty members and prepared for the rigors of college academia.
