Why Guilford for Adults?

For adults, one of the unique things about the Greensboro continuing education opportunities at Guilford College is our belief in “second chances” and equality, diversity, and a sense of community that CCE brings to the campus. The presence of both adults and traditional students also brings a unique diversity of experience and perspective to each classroom.

Parting Thoughts: My time here at Guilford has changed my life forever. It has allowed me to overcome academic and social stigmas assimilated as a youth. I have become what I was consistently told what I would not be at this stage of my life and for that I am eternally grateful for my Guilford education and for God allowing it to happen.

Favorite Quote: “Difficult roads lead to beautiful destinations” - Author Unknown
Parting Thoughts: College has a way of getting you out of your comfort zone. At least Guilford does. I entered Guilford as a quiet, reserved individual, unsure of where this journey would end. I left Guilford as an outspoken leader, ready to take on the world. I am ever so grateful to all of the faculty, staff, and students who were instrumental in making this journey one that was definitely worth the ride. Coming to Guilford was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The experience was scary, fun, stressful, exciting, and at times even dreadful. However, my Guilford experience has helped develop gifts and talents that I didn't even know I had. My Guilford experience has been amazing.
