Spring Into Guilford


Congratulations on your admission to Guilford College!

You and your family are invited to join us for Spring Into Guilford (SIG), an overnight event for admitted students, from Sunday, April 14, to Monday, April 15. 

SIG is an immersive experience designed to fully introduce you to life at Guilford. To learn more, check out the schedule of events. Highlights include:

  • Meeting faculty, staff and current students, plus your future classmates
  • Touring academic programs by attending classes
  • Uncovering your passion by exploring the student clubs and organizations fair
  • Getting answers to your questions about financial aid

As you may expect, SIG is a very popular event! And because of that popularity, we're at capacity for campus overnights with a student host. However, if you're still interested in staying on campus, mark that on your registration form and we'll add your name to the waitlist to stay with a student host of with a group in the College Athletic facilities. You'll be contacted by an Admission team member as soon as a space is available — we'll do our best to accommodate you!

In the meantime, we encourage you and your family to reserve a room at an area hotel — several on this list offer a Guilford College discount. Just ask for it when you make your reservation.

If you're requesting the option to spend the night on campus, please also print, complete, and return this Overnight Liability Form to the Office of Admission at your earliest convenience.

Questions? Contact admission@guilford.edu or call 336.316.2100.
