David chose Guilford College because he believes in Community.
Just months before graduation, David was beginning his final indoor track season for Guilford College when he stumbled on an uneven surface and suffered an upper calf injury. He had the option to use a medical redshirt from the NCAA to extend his athletic eligibility one season beyond his 2014 graduation.
David could have taken his year of athletic eligibility to another college, or even graduate school. After some reflection, David chose to stay at the College for his final year of track and field for the same reason he came to Guilford – the community.
“At Guilford, you’ll build strong bonds with professors, peers and administrators,” David says.
“The most important thing I learned about myself at Guilford was the kind of person I want to be. I developed skills and had meaningful experiences, which have helped me discover my innate qualities and ultimately decide medicine is the path for me.”
