Resources and Student Support
An Adult Transitions course is offered exclusively for first-term CCE students at Guilford College. The central focus of the course is to help adult students ease into the college experience and come to terms with the issues and opportunities involved in life changes. Students read autobiographies and write autobiographical essays as a means of working through these transitions.
Peer mentors offer guidance and encouragement to new students. Whether you happen to be struggling with new technology, trying to get around on campus, looking for new friends, needing help in finding campus resources or anything else, a peer mentor can be your guide. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. For more information on requesting or becoming a peer mentor, contact Nicole Cornett Arnold, CCE student success counselor, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (336) 316-2267.
Free tutoring and other academic support services can be found in The Learning Commons (LC). Here, staff members and peers help students develop strategies for more effective and efficient learning across the curriculum and throughout their lives. The LC provides academic support for all students, including CCE students, students with special needs, students on academic probation and those doing creative writing, advanced course work or senior theses.
Guilford is proud of its support services for students with learning differences. Disability Resources has a broad system of services that students find useful and encouraging. Our advisers work with students individually to help them carefully plan/balance their classes and schedules.

Telephones for local calls, study space, wireless Internet access and computers for student use are also available here.

Student Life Resources
The CCE Student Government Association (SGA) is composed entirely of CCE students and exists to serve the welfare and interests of adult students by working to establish a community that is supportive of the continuing education of adults. The SGA sponsors social and cultural events throughout the year.
The Career Development Center program works with members of the Guilford College community to aid students and alumni in career preparation through self-exploration and major investigation and to coordinate internships and on-campus student employment. The Center works to connect each individual’s academic knowledge and experiential learning in ways that lead to fulfilling employment. The department employs a holistic approach to career development by teaching career-related skills through classes, workshops and individual career counseling. The Center provides resume-building and graduate-school advising services.
Extracurricular activities abound for adult students at Guilford College. CCE students may participate free of charge in academic clubs, departmental clubs and activities, intramural sports and the campus fine arts series, as well as all events sponsored by SGA. Participation in other traditional student clubs and organizations is available upon payment of a CCE Plus Activity Fee of $25 per semester. Currently, CCE students are not considered eligible to be elected officers in student clubs and activities designed for traditional-aged students.
The Multicultural Education Department takes an inclusive approach as strives to educate and celebrate diversity and multiculturalism on the campus of Guilford College. As our staff and students seek to build bridges, both on campus and in the greater Greensboro community, we invite students to be catalysts for positive change by visiting with us and participating in programming and workshops sponsored by the department.
