Guided Discovery

Helping You Find Your Way

Whether you know exactly where you want to go with your education or you aren’t even sure where to begin, our Guided Discovery team is eager to help you. We will be with you every step of the way as together we chart a promising course for your meaningful success at Guilford — and beyond. 



Creating Your Dream Team

No one goes it alone at Guilford. Every student here benefits from a personal team of advisers who provide expert counsel in creating connections between academic interests and career aspirations. You’ll have an impressive network to get you wherever you dream of going.

From day one, you’ll have your own Guilford Guide, who will take time getting to know you and your dreams. Your guide will work side-by-side with you in designing paths for illuminating discovery as you explore your interests, identify life goals and plan for your post-college success.

Along the way, you’ll come to trust the considerable wisdom of many others who will join your team: faculty advisers, peer mentors, Guilford alumni and other career professionals. They will collaborate closely in making sure you’re well supported and guided throughout your entire Guilford experience and well beyond graduation day. 



Ensuring You Excel

Your success isn’t left to chance at Guilford. Your Guilford Guide and personal team of advisers will help keep you on track with a dynamic, well-designed plan that emphasizes:

  • Academic support and guidance 

We’ll help you develop the disciplines, study habits and skill sets necessary to excel as a highly motivated student. You’ll leverage the many learning  resources we offer to ensure you get off to a great start at Guilford. 

  • Career education and exploration

As you dive into real-world learning focused on the issues that matter most to you, we’ll help you make connections between those courses and exciting career possibilities. You’ll become well connected to career experts as you seek out life-shaping internships and study away experiences.

  • Thriving at Guilford and beyond

Working closely with your own team of advisers, you’ll build a constantly evolving plan that gives you the agility to adapt to your changing interests and opportunities. The whole point is to make the most of every semester at Guilford while gaining the knowledge, skills and experience you need to thrive in pursuit of your life’s dreams.
