“The Admission team went above and beyond to make me feel welcome on campus. In the often impersonal world of college admissions, I was pleasantly surprised to receive handwritten notes in the mail and comments from the Dean himself on my personal statement,” she says.
Danika’s time at Guilford undoubtedly shaped her future path. As an International Studies and French double major and German minor, Danika greatly appreciated the global viewpoint through which her education was delivered. “Four years of Guilford taught me to view the world with a critical eye, pose challenging questions, and attempt to answer even the uncomfortable ones,” she says.
However, she says the most unique and influential part of her Guilford experience was the caliber of the College’s faculty — welcoming students into their classrooms, and even into their homes, to share their knowledge and love for teaching. In particular, Associate Professor of French Maria Bobroff, Professor of German David Limburg, and Professor of English and Director of the Honors Program Heather Hayton were especially integral to her Guilford experience.
“Thank you for being the most wonderful academic advisers and personal mentors I could have ever asked for!” she says. They encouraged her to pursue her passions unapologetically and always lent a helping hand, leading her down the path to outstanding success.
“I carry the lessons I learned, both in and outside of the classroom, with me wherever I go. I could write a novel about each and every one of my professors and the impact they had on my intellectual development,” Danika says.
