Resources and Student Support

Academic Resources

Adult Student Success Courses

An Adult Transitions course is offered exclusively for first-term adult students at Guilford College. The central focus of the course is to help our Greensboro, NC continuing education students ease into Guilford College, 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.

The Learning Commons

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 adult students, students with special needs, students on academic probation and those doing creative writing, advanced course work or senior theses.

Disability Resources

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.

Commuter Lounge

A study and activities lounge is provided for adult students in the lower level of Mary Hobbs Hall. Telephones for local calls, study space, wireless Internet access and computers for student use are also available here. Adjacent to the commuter lounge is a smaller, dedicated lounge for veterans.

Student Life Resources

CCE Student Government Association (SGA)

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.

Career Development Center

The Career Development Center 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

We hope by allowing CCE involvement in all traditional student organizations we can create a more inclusive environment.

Multicultural Education Department

The Multicultural Education Department takes an inclusive approach as it 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.
