Serve & Support

Affiliation with the national Guilford College Alumni Association provides a lifelong connection to your alma mater. It is comprised of alumni chapters formed in select geographic regions and around disciplines and affinities, which offer opportunities for service, friendship, and networking. Members in these groups hail from diverse backgrounds and create a rich pool of people resources. Your participation is invaluable to fellow alumni, students and the College.

Alumni know Guilford like no other.  Through Parents and Alumni for Volunteers for Enrollment (PAVE) you can serve Guilford in the following ways:

  • Refer a student – Year-Round
    Tell us about students who you think would enjoy Guilford’s unique educational environment.
  • Represent Guilford at college fairs – Fall/Spring
    Distribute literature and answer questions at college fairs throughout the fall and spring. You will have the opportunity to personally meet students interested in Guilford. The time commitment is minimal – just a couple of hours one evening.
  • Interview a prospective student – Fall/Spring
    Developing personal relationships with students is an integral part of the admission process at Guilford. The interview provides an opportunity for you to connect with students personally, creating a connection to the College.
  • Host/Attend regional prospective and admitted student events – Winter/Spring/Summer
    Meeting with accepted and/or enrolled students is another fun way to volunteer. Admitted students appreciate the opportunity to meet with alumni as they make their college choice. Once students have decided to enroll at Guilford, summer send-offs offer a festive way to meet, share in their excitement and ease their anxiety as they prepare to leave home for college. We have receptions throughout the year in various parts of the country as well as here on campus.
  • Participate in admitted student postcard campaigns – Fall/Spring
    Congratulate admitted students on their acceptance to the College and share what you love about Guilford.
  • Make parent-to-parent phone calls – Fall/Spring
    The college admission process can be stressful for students and their families. As such, we offer support in the form of phone calls to parents of admitted and deposited students. As the parent of a Guilford College student, current or former, we invite you to share your experiences, tips, and stories.
