Life at Guilford

It All Happens Here

Guilford — and the surrounding Greensboro community — is an inspiring mosaic of people, viewpoints and activities that enrich the learning experience for everyone. Make new friends in our dozens of clubs and organizations. Share your talents on stage or in the gallery. Make a difference on a service project. Have your voice heard on the radio. With so much to do, the only thing holding you back are the number of hours in the day.
