The national Guilford College Alumni Association is a family of over 23,000 alumni spanning the globe each with ties to a transformative liberal arts college, deeply rooted with Quaker values and nestled in the beautiful Piedmont of North Carolina.

We are critical thinkers prepared to develop innovative solutions to new and existing problems in whatever place we find ourselves. We are social entrepreneurs creating paths that will sustain the world in which we live and make a positive impact on those whom we serve. We are grounded by a sense of altruism and guided by our convictions - that is, the testimony of our Guilford experience.

We are a city mayor, underwater archaeologist, U.S. Congressman, NBA player, award-winning author and blogger, CEO of Fortune 1000 company, pediatrician and clinic operator, wildlife biologist, software developer, religious studies professor, metals sculptor...we are YOU.
