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.  You can serve in our Guilford Alumni & Parent Program (GAP) 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. GAP volunteers help by personally meeting with interested students. The time commitment is minimal – just a couple of hours one evening.
  • Conduct coffee shop visits – Spring/Summer
    Developing personal relationships with students is an integral part of the admission process at Guilford. The coffee shop visit 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 recptions throughout the year in various parts of the country as well as here on campus.

  • Alumni Feedback Needed on Student Learning

    Guilford seeks alumni feedback on how to improve student learning. Time is of the essence for ideas and feedback to the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Selection Committee. Please submit your ideas early for consideration by the committee. The deadline for ideas and feedback to the QEP Selection Committee is November 7th . This is Guilford’s homegrown plan to devote a measure of our talent, energy and resources to improve an aspect of student learning that we find meaningful.
