Orientation

Welcome to the Center for Continuing Education (CCE) at Guilford College!

Now that you have registered for classes you are eligible to sign up for fall 2014 new student orientation! New student orientation is highly recommended for all new students – statistics show that students who attend orientation are better prepared for class, less anxious about school and tend to be more successful!

“Orientation sent me in the right direction. I got set up with my e-mail, talked with other new students feeling the same as I and also benefited from the campus tour to see where I would be taking my classes. Talking one on one with the tour guys put me at ease because they were students who had been there and were able to share their school experiences as we walked around campus in a relaxed atmosphere. “ – Robert Covington, Health Sciences/Sports Management major

“After being out of college for fifteen years I was nervous to be coming back. Everyone has been very helpful and supportive, and this is definitely the best decision I have ever made. Everyone wants to see you succeed. Take advantage of all that Guilford has to offer. All you have to do is ask.” – Jean Kelley, Elementary Education and English major
