Concerning my academics here, I would say Guilford is one in a million. Its learning style is flexible. I’ve had the chance to communicate with professors for academic advice and reflections on classwork and assignments. I really love all my classes. They are preparing me for the world out there. In most of my classes, our studies are not just based on classroom work. But we also volunteer in the community at sites that correspond with our studies.
Opportunities for experiential learning have encouraged me take what I learn in the classroom and use it to better my community. I very much enjoyed working at these community sites.
My communication courses have shown me that communication is not only media-centric, but also entails anything that evolves around us, which helps to solve real-world problems, build relationships and improve community relations.
I must admit that Guilford has been a safe haven for me. I do not have to worry about security or feel afraid when walking at night on campus. Public Safety at Guilford is always available to give me a helping hand.
All my extracurriculars here at Guilford have helped me to build up my self-confidence, particularly my time with the Bonner Center for Community Service and Learning. I’m a proud member of the Community Scholars, working with the Quaker Cupboard.
