Alumni Benefits & FAQ

Q. What is the Alumni House?

A.   If you are visiting Greensboro or on campus, please stop by the Alumni House for a cup of coffee. We'd love to know you're here.

The Worth House at Guilford was built by Daniel Worth, a New Garden and Guilford trustee from 1875 to 1894. When New Garden Boarding School became Guilford College, Daniel’s daughter, Laura, was a member of the first graduating class, and became the College’s first physical education director for women and later served as college nurse.

The College used the house for many years as a private home for faculty. Among the first to live in Worth House were Clyde and Ernestine Milner. Dr. Milner served as Guilford’s president from 1934 until 1965. Mrs. Milner taught psychology and philosophy of the arts and served a stint as a dean. Interlink, which helped foreign students adjust to American college life, occupied the house for six years.

The Alumni House, as it is affectionately known, faces Friendly Avenue and has been owned by the College since 1930. Painted cream and white and remodeled in a Colonial Revival style, the house is beautifully simple. In the spring of 2000, the Office of Alumni Relations moved into the house where it remains.
