Whatever you seek, from concerts to art exhibitions, from globally-known guest lecturers to multicultural programs from athletics and varsity sporting events to festivals and dances, there is something for every student at Guilford. With 40 student organizations and clubs in our 220 acre forested back yard, the opportunities are endless.
Students come to Guilford College for a transformational experience. Influenced by a Quaker heritage, our welcoming, engaged community encourages you to explore who you are and who you want to become. Immersed in an atmosphere of personal integrity, respect for others and plenty of independence, our students enjoy the opportunity to grow individual strengths, responsibilities and resources, and to gain a sense of direction.
In our small and vibrant community it’s easy to develop life-long friendships (both with students and faculty), pursue academic achievements, the arts, athletics, campus jobs, club activities, community service, and participate in student government.
Our students enjoy a modern fitness center, 20 varsity teams, numerous club sports and intramural teams, 40 student organizations and a rich cultural community offering frequent art exhibits, concerts, recitals and theatre productions.
