Academic Resources

Academic Support

Successful Guilford College students take advantage of all the academic resources at their disposal. And Guilford offers many support services!

Academic advising at Guilford is far more than the two simple words suggest. We take to heart our responsibility to guide students like you through your academic choices as well as your life choices. The Guilford Guides are professional academic and career advisors who work in our integrated advising center, called Guided Discovery.  They will assist you in choosing courses and independent studies, obtaining internships, planning for a variety of available study abroad experiences, and preparing for life after graduation.

As a first-year student, a team of faculty, staff, and students will be there to support you. In addition to their Guilford Guides, all first-year students work with an interdisciplinary teaching team in their first class. Initiate is designed to get students off to a strong start at Guilford. This course covers everything from readiness for college-level coursework and collaboration to personal discernment related to academic and career exploration.

Hege Academic Commons

Guilford’s Hege Library represents the College's commitment to academic excellence and student success.

The Hege Academic Commons is a symbol of Guilford's academic excellence and institutional distinctiveness in furthering innovation through collaboration. As a dynamic learning environment, it fosters a culture of scholarly exploration and experimentation, promotes creativity and innovation, and provides information and technology resources to advance Guilford's unique liberal arts experience.
